And here I was hoping this would get released on May the 4th (get it?). But alas, a week early we got the goodies. Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams will feature the return of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher in their original roles, as previously speculated. The older actors will play alongside many new faces, including Andy Serkis, best known as Gollum in the Lord of the Rings, Domhnall Gleeson (About Time, Harry Potter), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn-Davis) Adam Driver from HBO’s Girls and John Boyega from the British alien flick Attack the Block (the director of that will take over Abrams’ duties as director on Star Trek 3). Veteran actor Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist, Shutter Island) stands out as the oldest of the new actors, possible Sith lord alert?   Rounding up the new additions is Daisy Ridley, who is relatively unknown at this point in time but that will surely change after Star Wars gets it’s December 18, 2015 release date.
