Star Wars: Episode VII to Feature Original Cast Members!

Holy-Wan Kenobi! Can it be real?

Some amazing news has been flying around the Truffle Towers recently. During an interview with Business Week Star Wars creator, George Lucas, revealed some exciting news that the original trilogy’s main cast have all signed up for Episode VII!
The legendary cast we all know and love, including Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, are set to take part in the upcoming new adventure in the series which was brought back to life after a recent Disney purchase. Disney announced in January that Lost co-creator JJ Abrams would direct the new film, due out in 2015, but the film-maker reportedly shunned the initial offer before later changing his mind. Phew!

Ford originally starred as Han Solo, Fisher as Princess Leia and Hamill as Luke Skywalker in the first three Star Wars films, beginning with 1977’s Star Wars and going until Return of the Jedi in 1983. Known widely as the most successful and loved films of the series, can they recreate the same magic after all these years?

Lucas had already began developing the new trilogy before the Disney deal in order to increase its overall value. These discussions with the old cast worked as part of that strategy. It seems now that even with the Disney buy out, it’s going to be business as usual for the most epic space series ever!

What do you think? Great to see the old cast back or was it time to move on…again?
