Here is your first official casting announcement for JJ Abrams, “Star Wars Episode 7”. It has been announced that Chewbacca will be returning played by it’s original actor, Peter Mayhew. Even though the Disney chairman, Alan Horn, have said they have many actors signed on for the film… they are still being secretive on the cast. One have been confirmed by the Hollywood Reporter:
This is getting even closer to the fact that everybody from the original trilogy is returning. That includes Han, Leia, Luke, and Lando.
When will Disney/Lucasfilm finally announce the full cast? May the 4th possibly? They’re still being secretive on the plot and title too. It’s no surprise that Chewbacca would be in. Just shows that Harrison is definitely in ’cause there can’t be a Chewie without Han.
I’m looking forward to seeing who the new and young cast will be too. Will Lupita Nyong’o and Jesse Plemons be in?
I’d like to see the return of Boba Fett but he can’t after what happened to him in “Return of the Jedi” but I’m pretty sure they’ll create another character similar to him, though.
I hope JJ don’t let us down with this one like he did with “Star Trek Into Darkness”.
