Cast announcement!

The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.

Director J.J. Abrams says, "We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.

Ming the merciless. EXCELLENT. And quite a surprise. I do hope he's playing a baddie.

I'm intrigued by the inclusion of Andy Serkis, myself.

Great news! And perhaps best of all, Peter Mayhew's back as Chewie. There were some doubts about his participation thanks to his mobility and other health concerns in recent years, so it's good to have the Big Walking Carpet back where he belongs alongside his classic castmates.

Harrison, Mark and Carrie in the same room with R2 right behind Ford.

It's a good time to be a geek.

Exactly my first thought. It was always male-dominated but I'd expected that to be rectified this time. I thought perhaps we'd get the adventures of Luke's daughter. Maybe we will - we don't yet know who Daisy Ridley is playing, after all - but still, a bit disappointing in this day and age.

I'm just happy John Boyega is in the cast. He was excellent in Attack the Block. It makes me smile that Abrams kept his word about diversifying the cast.

I gotta admit: That picture made me tear up a little. It's like seeing old friends.

I was eight the last time cast photos with those actors were made public. I'm a 39-year-old fan going on nine.

Harrison Ford actually playing Han Solo again. I just... wow. Never thought I'd see it.

Now he'll make the Kessel Run in less than 18 parsecs with the Falcon's left turn light blinking the entire time.

But I kid Harrison. It's awesome to see him back.
