STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Official Cast Announcement - UPDATE more to come

Get ready to break the internet - just officially announced the cast for Episode VII. And it's not even May The Fourth!!!

Let's not beat around the bush, here are the names you're interested in...
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."

How's that sound for you?

Great to have final confirmation of Ford, Hamill, Fisher, Mayhew, Daniels and Baker return to the franchise. Some of the new names had been heavily rumoured, but Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max Von Sydow are a very welcome surprise.

Feel free to speculate over who they could be playing below!

Are we excited yet?

UPDATE: According to The Hollywood Reporter there is still another major female role to fill. It looks likely that this will be the young mixed-race character, who could possibly be a descendent of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Both Lupita Nyong'o and Maisie Richardson-Sellers have been attached to this role (rumour mill wise) over the last couple of months.
