Star Wars 7 cast announced

Our bit of non-political news today…

The cast of the upcoming Star Wars film from J.J. Abrams has been announced:

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

The producers have already said they’re only counting as canon the stuff that’s been in the movies, not any of the “expanded universe” of TV shows, animated films and books.
