Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I'm impressed by the quality of actors that they seem to be auditioning. They seem to be looking for genuinely good character actors. Jesse Plemons, Adam Driver, Moses from Attack the Block (I can't remember the actor's name, but he was great in that movie), Lupita Nyongo. Hope the script is up to par.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Yeah, Plemons has the chops needed for a leading role in a film like this, that's for sure. If he's indeed cast then it'd be great watching him no matter which character he'll be playing.

The same things were said about the casting of the prequel trilogy as well. Look how that turned out.

Red Two, standing by.
Probably sitting next to Song of the South in the Disney vault.

I believe one of the fans is already working on it. I know there is a version of ANH out already.

I'm feeling a little chronologically challenged today. What does that mean, "released in digital format"?
Probably the iTunes Store.

Hopefully they keep Luke/Leia/Han's appearances to a minimal.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Threepio and the others will almost certainly be in the movie. As for the well-known characters outside the Troika, Chewie and the droids, who knows. I'd love to see Billy Dee return as an aging Lando and Denis Lawson reprise Wedge one more time, but I guess we won't know anything for certain for a little while longer.

There were the rumors that Judi Dench would appear as an elderly Mon Mothma, but who knows if that had any validity or not. I hadn't heard anything else about Dench being involved in discussions with the producers. That would be a nice piece of casting, though, if they were able to secure her for the role of the Rebellion's matriarch.

I hear some people can even make good actors looks like utter amateurs.
Even people like... say... Ewan McGregor, Samuel L. Jackson and Natalie Portman.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

While I'm sure they're throwing out the novel continuity....

this places the movie five years after the end of the Vong War and one year before the first book of the Dark Nest trilogy.

But George Lucas isn't directing this movie.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I'm quite sure they'll ignore ALL the novels... I seriously doubt that the Vong War will be part of the new continuity as it's by the far the darkest bloodiest non-movie-est aspect of the novels.
