'Star Wars: Episode VII' Confirms Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher & Mark Hamill

After months of speculation, the official cast for 'Star Wars: Episode VII' has been confirmed and, as expected, it includes some names from the past.

Joining original franchise stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew will be new additions Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow.

Lucasfilm did not specify the characters each will play, though Driver, of 'Girls', is widely expected to be playing the film's villain.

"We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII," said director JJ Abrams. "It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again."

"We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

Abrams co-wrote the script with 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi's Lawrence Kasdan from an early draft by Michael Arndt. John Williams, who created the original's famous themes, will return to score.

The story is said to pick up roughly thirty years after Episode VI left off. It is the first of at least three brand-new films to come. The film has a release date of December 18, 2015.
