*Cue the fangirl/fanboy squeals*
The cast has FINALLY been announced for J.J. Abram’s newest installment of the Star Wars saga!
And here they are:
Look! Even R2D2 is there!
Can’t tell who everyone is? No problem; I’m here to help!
The the original cast members (or as I like to call them: The Jedi Trinity) are BACK! That’s right, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher have all signed on to reprise their roles from the original (and, in this blogger’s opinion, the BEST) 1970’s films! But who are the rest of these young whippersnappers? Glad you asked!
Dom, AKA Bill Weasley, will be turning in his wand for a lightsaber come December 2015! IMDB doesn’t list his character’s name, but my guess is he is either the spawn of Han and Leia or one of Luke’s littles.
Best known for his role on HBO’s Girls and Inside Llewyn Davis, its unclear who Driver will be playing as well. Although, he really reminds me of a younger, less crazy-eyed Peter Mayhew. Maybe he’s one of Chewbacca’s pups…?
Another Llewyn Davis alum, Isaac hasn’t been in too many projects. I’m hoping this is a good thing. Although Hayden Christensen was a relative unknown when he was in Star Wars and we all know how THAT turned out…
This cute-as-a-button brunette is just about as adorable as her name. But, I feel as though there’s some fierceness behind those baby brown’s. Maybe she’s a little Leia…? Ridley has only has about 6 or 7 acting projects under her belt, but something tells me that Star Wars is going to catapult her to stardom.
What do you think about the casting choices? Like them? Don’t like them? Have any guesses as to who they might be playing? Honestly, I think the actors could stink and this movie would still be awesome. Mostly because J.J. Abram’s is driving this Falcon and that guy knows his way around a galaxy! No disrespect to George Lucas, but I’m still a little bitter about the whole “remastering” thing…and I don’t think I’m alone in this:
