    "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," read the press release on Starwars.com.


    If you're unfamiliar with the other names, you might remember Boyega from 24: Live Another Day, Driver from Girls, Isaac from Inside Llewelyn Davis, Gleeson from About Time and various Harry Potters. Serkis, of course, played the CGI Gollum in Lord of the Rings.

    British newcomer Daisy Ridley is the least well known of the new team. You'll know her if you happened to watch the eighth episode of the second season of the PBS show Mr. Selfridge, where she plays a character called Roxy.

    Max von Sydow would make an excellent Jedi or Sith.

    How are Michael Fassbender or Benedict Cumberbatch not in this? But I don't expect it to be anything more than a money grab like the last "Star Wars" films that were more of Star Wars theme park interpretation.

    An 85 year old Jedi. At least Yoda stilll manuvered in his old age as a Jedi, humans don't do as well.

    Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) is back - he is at the far right in the group photo at the reading session. So are the guys who play the droids (Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels).

    Alec Guinness was 63 years old when Star Wars came out in 1977. Mark Hamill is 63 and Harrison Ford is 72 right now.

    The re-imagined Star Trek? It has fared pretty good in my opinion. He certainly didn't copy the old formula, which was the intention used for breathing new life into the franchise for future generations.

    I am not saying it bombed at the box office, I LOVE Trek, IMO he ruined it. The second movie, was essentially Khan all over again.
