The wait is finally over, "Star Wars" fans! The official cast announcement has been released for J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII". Actors Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow are the newest members to join the adventuress of our favorite galaxy far, far away.
It was anticipated that series regulars would return but the press release finally confirmed that as well, and Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker will reprise their previous roles for the new installment.
Several of these names were rumored to be in the mix before, so speculation wasn't as far off as it sometimes is. A couple names that some fans were hoping to see like Benedict Cumberbatch, Zac Efron and Gary Oldman, are not included.
Following the big news of the redefined canon that dropped yesterday, Disney is certainly keeping "Star Wars" on the top of everyone's minds. Take a look below for detailed breakdowns of previous projects the new cast has been seen in, prior to joining this larger-than-life production.
