New STAR WARS has a new cast

swepisodevii-cast01J.J. Abrams’ super secret new Star Wars has been chugging along behind the scenes, and the official main cast has been announced today due to the first table read for the film. (For those who aren’t in the know, a table read is when people spend hours getting together and reading the confusing Ikea instructions to put together a new table.)

Here’s the new cast breakdown:

  • John Boyega
  • Daisy Ridley
  • Adam Driver
  • Oscar Isaac
  • Andy Serkis
  • Domhnall Gleeson
  • Max von Sydow

In addition to those newcomers, original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker are all on board.

No real details about the film have been released, but this casting news is pretty exciting. I’m especially excited about the inclusion of Oscar Isaac and Max von Sydow; Isaac is a fantastic actor, as is evident in Inside Llewyn Davis, and von Sydow is a legend who will apparently (and hopefully) live forever.

Surprisingly, there is no mention of Hayden Christensen.

So fire up your phasers, everyone! (That’s this series, right?)
