Star Wars episode 7, has already been filming for a while now. Now we know the official cast for the movie. As most know, episode 7 will pick up 30 years after Return of the Jedi. This allows the same actors who played Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo to be played by their original actors.
Chewbacca, will be played by Peter Meyhew again. In addition Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker will return as C-3PO and R2-D2. Composer John Williams will create the music for episode 7, just like has for all other Star Wars films.
New cast members are John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max Von Sydow.
Let's hope the force is strong with this one!

Forget asking about the whereabouts of Waldo. I have one question and one question only. "Where's Lando?" @realbdw #StarWarsEpisodeVII

I'm picturing Yoda arriving in the future and saying "No Han, turn out fine do you and Leia. Problem your kids be." #StarWarsEpisodeVII

Max Von Sydow in a Star Wars movie is perhaps the most joyful thing I've heard in months. #StarWarsEpisodeVII
