Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Glad to hear that Mayhew is back. Is he the first officially confirmed cast member?

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Daniels (Threepio) hasn't been officially confirmed, but as I said earlier in the thread he all but told a convention audience that he was indeed going to be in Episode VII. Now we just have to wait for the official studio word that Anthony's returned.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I wonder if they aren't deliberately doling out the announcements this way. Generate some excitement by announcing these fan-favorite secondary characters before rolling out the big news about the main cast and the returning "Big Three".

Actually it sounds to me like they're just reluctantly confirming what certain actors (like Mayhew) have already let slip out. If it was up to the studio, they'd probably prefer to wait and announce everybody all at once.

She's one of the oldest existing and most-recognized names from the EU so I imagine she'd be one of the more likely characters from the books to make an appearance in the new trilogy. Given that there've been multiple action figures of her over the years and she was the wife of Luke Skywalker she definitely has a strong fan following.

I've never read a single Star Wars novel, and I'm not even the biggest fan of the Star Wars films, but even I know who Mara Jade is.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

See?

Even people who don't give a Bantha's ass about the books know who she is. That matters. Whether it means she'll be in the new movie remains to be seen.

The local morning radio guys reported the story by saying they decided to go with a veteran instead of a wookiee. Ba-dum-tish

Two cameos are certain. The Bad Robot will play a barely visible background droid. The starship Enterprise will be barely visible in a crowded space scene.

No, but Hurley from Lost will be the guy piloting the big freighter marked "47" in Aurebesh.
