The Casting of Episode 7


So we now know who is going to be in Star Wars Episode 7. Even though we know the cast, we still don’t actually know who any of these new cast members are playing. We know Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels are returning to play their iconic characters from the OTC trilogy. But newcomers like Andy Serkis, Adam Driver and Max von Sydow are a mystery in regards to what their roles will be in this new trilogy. You can definitely speculate based on the franchises’ past history when it comes to characters and actors, but at this point it is all speculation.

The name that stands out the most to me is Daisy Ridley. The young actress has a short film resume and is basically a newcomer. Based on her physical attributes, I think she will be playing a descendant of the Skywalker clan in some way. If that is the case, she could be the Anakin and Luke character of this third Star Wars trilogy.

We have received a lot of answers in the last few days but so many questions still remain. How big of a role will the original cast play in this new trilogy? Is there room for Lando? Who are the villains, and who are the heroes, in Star Wars Episode 7? JJ Abrams has a lot of work ahead of him and hopefully this group of actors can help him deliver the quality of Star Wars’ film everyone is hoping for.
