Episode VII will hit theaters on December 18, 2015

This one’s a little bit off the beaten path, but there’s some big news in the sci-fi world today, as the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII has been officially announced.
None other than J.J. Abrams will helm the first installment in the third trilogy of Star Wars. And for better or worse (it depends on how you feel about characters that you grew up adoring reprising their roles decades later), most of the old gang will be back in some fashion for the Episode VII including:
  • Harrison Ford as "Han Solo"
  • Mark Hamill as "Luke Skywalker"
  • Carrie Fisher as "Princess Leia"
  • Peter Mayhew as "Chewbacca"
  • Anthony Daniels as "C-3PO"
  • Kenny Baker as "R2-D2"

There are also a number of actors new to the franchise including John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.
"We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII,” said J.J. Abrams. “It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again.”
Filming on Star Wars: Episode VII will begin in a few weeks and it will premiere (barring any unforeseen delays, of course) on December 18, 2015.
