A Star Wars sequel is in the pipeline for 2015 launch. The open auditions will start in the United Kingdom this November. The memorable 80s experience will be coming up before the senses of a rapt audience soon.

Star Wars, the 80s film series, that was a favorite among the teenage crowd is about to return to the silver screen. A sequel is in the works. Great Britain has been chosen as the venue for the movie’s casting sessions. London, Dublin and Glasgow are the hotspots. Star Wars production company, Lucasfilm, had already been bought by Disney in October 2012. 

Star Wars: Episode VII open audition will begin in Bristol on 9 November. Director and co-script writer of the movie, JJ Abrams, will not be present at the open auditions. Females participants must be above over 16 years in age. Males who want to give audition must be over 18 years.

The two lead roles in the film will be a worldly and resilient female orphan in her late teens as well as a savvy and competent male figure in early 20s. The Star Wars Series originally belongs to Walt Disney Studios. This time around it will be called Star Wars: Episode VII. The casting process will be hectic and painstaking. Star Wars has always chosen ordinary people to fill the roles of its characters. The last time around Luke Skywalker was played by Mark Hamill. 

Other examples of movies that have had open casting sessions include the Harry Potter Series. The Director of this effort, J.J. Abrahams will be noted by his absence from the casting sessions. As for the ages of the male and female characters, they will be 18 and 16 respectively. 

The filming is due to begin in the spring season next year. The movie itself will arrive in 2015 to an audience that will include Generation X members. They will get to relive the golden memories of this unforgettable Sci-Fi Series.
