    After months of speculation, the cast of Star Wars VII has finally been announced.
    On Tuesday Disney and Lucasfilm confirmed on the official Star Wars website that Girls star Adam Driver would take a part in the relaunched film as well as newcomers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow were also listed as cast members.
    It was also confirmed that stars of the original trilogy - Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker - would also be in the film, which will be directed by JJ Abrams and released in 2015.

    Confirmed: JJ Abrams, (15) at the cast read-through of Star Wars Episode VII at Pinewood Studios with (clockwise from right) Harrison Ford (1), Daisy Ridley (2), Carrie Fisher (3), Peter Mayhew (4), Producer Bryan Burk (5), Lucasfilm President and Producer Kathleen Kennedy (6), Domhnall Gleeson (7), Anthony Daniels (8), Mark Hamill (9), Andy Serkis (10), Oscar Isaac (11), John Boyega (12), Adam Driver (13) and Writer Lawrence Kasdan (14)







    A black-and-white photo of the cast and crew was accompanied by the announcement.
    Casting for the new film, which will be the first installment since Disney took over the franchise from George Lucas, has been so secretive it has been compared to the plans for the Death Star.
    It was first claimed by The Hollywood Reporter that Driver would play a villain in the film. In recent weeks it was speculated that Boyega (best known for Attack of the Block), and Isaac (who stood out in Inside Llewyn Davis) could be contenders.

    Ever since the film was announced in November, it has been reported that many of the original cast members would make cameos.
    It wasn't until Tuesday that it was finally confirmed that Harrison, aged 71, Mark, aged 62, and Carrie, aged 57, would definitely be back.
    It was reported in March that Peter, aged 69, would reprise his role as Chewbacca.
    The movie will hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
    In March, Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger said the new project would begin filming in May and will be set 30 years after the events in 1983's Return of the Jedi.

    I had an honest to goodness "Squee" moment when I saw this yesterday. I swear I hope they don't fuck it up. Episodes I-III are a damn travesty.

    I have never watched I-III, but I have watched IV-VI at least 20 times a piece.

    I'm so pumped. I'm hoping JJ can manage to do what George Lucas couldn't.

    oh, i have no doubt this will suck just as badly as I-III did. george lucas has a wonderful imagination but he can't write dialogue to save his fucking life and it's only getting worse with age. i think it's a fluke that IV-VI were so amazing (though i have my reservations about return of the jedi - fucking ewoks).
    but, at least there will be hot men.

    JJ has done some amazing things with the Star Trek reboots IMO so I have hope.

    I've felt so betrayed by episodes I-III, I guess nothing will be worse than that … I even have hope that this will be good.
    Otherwise this time I'm definitely killing people for pissing all over my childhood

    Jar Jar wasn't anywhere close to the travesty Hayden C was.
