What’s unarguably the biggest day for a “Star Wars” geek – well, since “The Phantom Menace” trailer dropped in 1999 – is upon us. And, if this short teaser for J.J Abrams’ big 2015 “Star Wars” relaunch is anything to go by, the only turkey we’ve seen this week is the one that now sits, charcoaled and guts out, on the bottom of the bin liner.
Without further ado, we welcome you back to that Galaxy Far, Far, Away….
Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
Director J.J. Abrams says, “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.”
Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.
