Star Wars Episode 7 Cast to be Revealed Shortly

Rumors are starting to go around about the original Star Wars cast members being in the upcoming episode of Star Wars VII.


Three members of the original cast were spotted in London over the weekend.  Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo -- was seen striking up a conversation with local ambulance pilots in Grosvernor Square.  Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker -- had a photo taken with London actor Peter Serafinowicz, who was the voice of Darth Maul in Episode I. 


Finally, Carrie Fisher joked on twitter “So my do dog Gary has been spotted in London, but apparently without me. Who has he been seeing? Let me know if you have any clues.”


The official announcement for photography on the upcoming movie is set for May 15th.  Director J.J. Abrams has kept a lid on announcing the official cast -- but with stars starting to show up just weeks before the film starts to commence fans will soon get to peek into the next generation of the Star Wars Universe.


Disney announced that the characters in the upcoming films VII-IX will not follow the expanded universe.  Instead it will develop into its own story that will be separate from the books that took off after the end of "Return of the Jedi."  This could potentially set the franchise up for a second set of trilogies and a number of spin-off movies that include their own stories.


In a statement released to fans at starwars.com, the original six movies and its film and TV offshoot, The Clone Wars, are described as “the immovable objects of Star Wars history, the characters and events to which all other tales must align”.


“In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an element of surprise and discovery for the audience, Star Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the post-Return of the Jedi expanded universe.”


Although it hasn't been officially announced -- Disney is also reportedly working on a Star Wars spin-off movie with Boba Fett.  The buzz for the upcoming script is that after Boba Fett died, a new person assumed his role as the galaxies number one bounty hunter.  The Director of Captain America: The First Avenger, Joe Johnston is rumored to possibly be directing the spin-off.


The upcoming film Star Wars Episode VII is set to be released on the 18th of December, 2015.  It is epected to cost 175 million dollars -- with a potential to generate over 1 billion world wide once it has been released.
