Star Wars Episode 7 Cast Makes For a Promising Start of New Trilogy
The Star Wars Episode 7 cast is looking stellar. Some of the old cast is returning. As many of us already know Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are in. So, too, are some of the old supporting cast like Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO)) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2).
Check out the video below to find out who the other Star Wars Episode 7 cast members are.
The Clevver movies channel over at Youtube have put together a great video about the cast members.
The New Star Wars Trilogy
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will kick off a new Star Wars trilogy. J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan rewrote an initial script by Michael Arnott. Kasdan, of course, was a co-writer of The Empire Strikes back and Return of the Jedi. John Williams is composing the musical score and George Lucas is serving as creative consultant. That as well as the old cast pumps up the nostalgia value for me to UNBEARABLE!
For those wondering. When George Lucas sold the rights of the movie to Disney he also handed over the story treatments for episode 7. Disney, however, chose to create brand new stories for the upcoming movies instead.
We don’t have long to wait. Principal photography ended on November 3 last year. The movies current release date is December 18, 2015.
With J.J. Abrams at the helm I’m optimistic that the pendulum will swing the same way as Star Trek. Awesome!
