Star Wars - Star Wars: Episode Vii Cast Revealed

The official cast of Star Wars: Episode Vii has been revealed.

Original Star Wars icons Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will return to the franchise, as expected, while Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2) will reprise their beloved characters too.

Also announced are Attack The Block star John Boyega, actress Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow.

The casting news was posted on the Star Wars Facebook page on Tuesday morning (29Apr14), just days after speculation about Ford, Fisher and Hamill's involvement in Episode Vii reached fever pitch after it became clear that all three were in London, where filming on the blockbuster is about to begin. Over the weekend, they were spotted at a cast dinner with Driver and Serkis.

A statement from director J.J. Abrams reads: "We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode Vii. 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. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

The film is due to hit theatres in December, 2015.
