According to Iger, Star Wars: Episode VII will involve three new young leads along with “some familiar faces.” Unfortunately, the only cast member Iger was willing to confirm was R2-D2. Iger wouldn’t even commit to confirming Adam Driver (Girls) has been cast as the main villain.
With filming set to begin in just a few months, we can expect to hear confirmation on the principal cast soon. It’s long been rumored that Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill would be showing up in the new Star Wars film, but co-writers J.J. Abrams (who is also directing) and Lawrence Kasdan aren’t letting any secrets out just yet.
Disney and Lucasfilm are aiming for a December 18, 2015 theatrical release.
