With Star Wars 7 being released in December, I want to list my dream cast for [Star Wars: Episode VIII](movie:711868). Some may return from Episode 7. I am only listing some actors as I dont know who they would play yet. Beware of possible spoilers as Episode 7 is not yet released. Here we go

We all know that Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) is a new character who will learn the force throughout Episode 7. As the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia, Rey is one of the main heroes in the new generation. Ridley has been announced to be in Episode 8 and 9, making her the first new character to appear in the entire trilogy.

Finn (played by John Boyega) is a force sensitive Stormtrooper, until the head of the Stormtroopers leave him on the desert on Tatooine. After this, he reforms and joins Rey on her quest to learn the secrets of the force. I think Boyega should be in the entire trilogy as I think he belongs with Rey and Poe as the new leads of the trilogy.

Poe Dameron (played by Oscar Isaac) is an X-Wing pilot and a new member of the rebel alliance. Not much is known about him except it is rumored that he will join Rey and Finn on their quest to find Luke Skywalker, who is hiding in exile to protect a tomb from Kylo Ren. Isaac has been confirmed to appear in Episode 8, which is pretty awesome if you are already a fan on this character.

With the 3 new characters out of the way, lets move on to my dream cast. We already know that Episode 7 is rumored to be a send off to Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, as this is a chance for the new generation of Jedi to take the spotlight. Anyway, lets do this.

1. Mark Ruffalo

Anything would suit him fine as he stated on the email that he sent to Rian Johnson requesting a role in Star Wars 8. In my opinion, he should play a good character because he looks like a good actor. I love his portrayal as Bruce Banner/Hulk in the avengers movies. Everybody loves him as the hulk so I think he would be great for Star Wars.

2. Simon Pegg

He was already seen on the set for Star Wars 7, but I think he should continue for the rest of the trilogy. I think he should be a villain or a bounty hunter as he has some experience as some baddies and some good guys.

3. Frank Oz (as Yoda)

Yoda's spirit should appear guiding the new generation of Jedi along the way to becoming Jedis

4. Christopher Walken

This man would be perfect for a villain type role. He had loads of experience as villains. I love his portrayal as Max Shreck in Batman Returns. To me, he looks like the next major antagonist as he looks the right touch for Grand Admiral Thrawn if he is ever used in the films

5. Jennifer Lawrence

Already best known as Mystique in the X Men Films and as Katniss in The Hunger Games, she should definitely be in Star Wars. I think she should be an assassin or a female Jedi as she has got the looks.

So they are my top 5 actors that should join the cast of Star Wars 8. What do you guys think? Is there an actor or actress that you feel should be part of the cast of Star Wars 8. Please leave a comment below and let me know.
