On Tuesday a short statement on the official Star Wars website announced the new cast of the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII.

As expected, the main core of the original trilogy will reprise their roles with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher returning as Luke, Han and Leia.  Other well known faces making a comeback are Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker as C3PO, Chewbacca and R2-D2.

Although we’re not sure which characters they’re playing yet, here’s a run down of the new additions:

Domhnall Gleeson – best known for playing Bill Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise has also appeared in Dredd, About Time and Black Mirror

Daisy Ridley – has appeared in Casualty, Silent Witness, Mr Selfridge and is apparently due to appear in The Inbetweeners 2

John Boyega – best known for his role as Moses in Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block

Max Von Sydow -famous playing Ming the Merciless in Flash Gordon and Academy Award nominated roles in Pelle the Conqueror and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Oscar Isaac – played the lead role in the Coen Brother’s multi-award nominated Inside Llewyn Davis

Adam Driver – a regular on HBO’s Girls, Driver is tipped to be the main antagonist of the new film

Andy Serkis – famous for bringing CGI characters to life such as Gollum, King Kong and his role as Ian Dury in Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll

At the helm is Star Trek director JJ Abrams who said: “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.”

Open auditions were held in the UK late last year for two roles, although it hasn’t been confirmed that these roles are part of the main cast.

The screenplay for Star Wars Episode VII will be written by JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan and is released on December 18, 2015.
