Following months of rumour and speculation, it has been confirmed that original case members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew will all be returning for Star Wars Episode VII.
They will be joined by several new actors to the franchise including Adam Driver (Girls, Inside Llewyn Davis) and Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) as well as Hollywood great Max Von Sydow and Andy Serkis who already has The Lord Of The Rings and Hobbit trilogies tucked under his belt.
You can read the announcement as published on the official Star Wars website (though it is currently struggling to stay up!) and see the first photo of the cast together having a read through of the script before shooting begins in a fortnight's time.
Star Wars Episode VII will be released at cinemas across the world on December 18th 2015.
