Today, Lucasfilm released the first "teaser trailer" for Star Wars: Episode VIII! And with the teaser, came a cast announcement!
The cast includes all of the cast of Episode VII (except Harrison Ford), and also includes some new cast members: Benicio Del Toro (Sicario, Guardians of the Galaxy), Newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, and Laura Dern (Picture below).
Laura, 49, would be a great opportunity for one character in particular: Luke's wife. There has been some speculation that Luke's wife would appear in the film, and she could be her.
The first scene we have of Luke from Episode VIII (picture above), shows that he isn't as old as we thought he might be, which could be a good opportunity to introduce Laura as his wife.
Also from the teaser we got another shot of Rey and Luke together, a direct follow up of how The Force Awakens ended. We also got a look of Rian Johnson directing on Skellig Michael!
