With Star Wars: Episode VII going into production early next year, we’re getting a ton of news from Disney and LucasFilm. Today, it looks like J. J. Abrams and company have sent out on official-looking casting list for the leads of the upcoming film. Take a look!
Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.
A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.
Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.
A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.
Forty something male, fit, military type.
Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.
Given that it’s likely the main protagonists of the film are Han and Leia’s twin children, Jacen and Jaina Solo; it’s likely they’ll be filling the role of the young male and female. The other young male could possibly be the twins younger brother Anakin, but the age difference doesn’t seem right. We can also assume that the man in the 70’s is likely to be Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.
None of this has been confirmed yet, but we can at least throw some conjecture around. What’s your thoughts Towelites?
