LucasFilm has surprised virtually everyone, announcing that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII will star not only Harrison Ford, but Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. Andy Serkis also joins the movie, too.
J.J. Abrams, co-creator of Lost and the director of Star Trek: Into Darkness is back with Star Wars on the big screen with Episode VII with a release date of December 2015. It stars Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. Original stars from Star Wars will also be featured, including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.
Now the big question is, just how much did Disney pay for all of this - considering it purchased LucasFilm for $4 billion - this seems like a massive investment. I'm sure it wasn't cheap getting the original actors on-board, but this should be somewhat exciting for Star Wars fans.
