This is exciting. I'm leaning more towards and unknown or two, especially for the lead. But cast whoever is the best, unknown or not. But I expect every young male and female actors will be trying out for these main roles.

I wonder if the two young girls will know and speak to each other so that the movie can at least pass the Bechdel test.

I feel like that the cast won't be completely unknown ala Brandon Routh or Jake Lloyd. But actors who are killing it in the indie scene or on television, just waiting to get their stardom shined upon them.

Though it would be crazy if the '40 something' was someone as badass as Daniel Craig or Idris Elba! BOOM!

Ya I figure there will be a few big guns in there, but the mains will be "somewhat" known but not mainstream. Much like the OT where you had some one like Alec in there with a younger cast.

I'm a fan of The Legend of Korra so I don't mind a change of pace for Star Wars. Could be refreshing if that's kind of like where they're going.

The sites that seem to have broken the news are SchmoesKnow (yesterday) and Bleeding Cool (with the details today). Just so we can try to track this back to who originated what.

Could be. The case is far from closed but the possibility is definitely there now, especially when connected to past rumor.

The Force Unleashed worked just as self contained games. But once you attempt to 'include' them into canon, they make no beeping sense at all.

Excellent news. Female lead rumour getting closer and closer to being the truth. Guy in his 70s, eh? Get Michael Caine.

Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if John Noble got an offer for that role in particular.

I'd love Noble. But imagine Caine:

"A long time ago, I was in Kashyyyk. My friends and I were working for the local Moff. They were trying to buy the loyalty of Wookie leaders by bribing them with precious droid arms. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Etyyy by a bandit. So, we went looking for the parts. But in six months, we never met anybody who traded with him. One day, I saw a Wookie child playing with a R4 arm the size of a lightsaber. The bandit had been throwing them away."

BTW, the casting directors are April Webster, Alyssa Weisberg, and Nina Gold.

The interesting thing is that Webster and Weisberg already have a strong relationship with JJ and Bad Robot. Gold on the other hand is very interesting because her background is dealing with many UK based films and indie flicks. And yes, she has done casting for GAME OF THRONES!

Anyway, this will give you all an idea on the mindset of the casting choices somewhat.

Casting directors of JJ stuff AND Game of Thrones?

Please ignore the fapping sounds coming from my direction.

Hmm... perhaps some young Game of Thrones actors could be auditioning. Though the show would interfere with filming for this film. Besides Cinderella, I don't think Richard Madden is doing anything. I could definitely see him in a Star Wars film.

No GOT films from June/July to about November. Whereas this is confirmed to start filming in Jan/early 2014.

I've been pushing for lots of the GOT actors.

Idris Elba as a badass rogue Stormtrooper!

I'd like to see Russell Crowe in this, preferably as a Jedi, which I don't think anyone's mentioned yet.

I hope the female lead is a Jedi.

do you think they will make them related to the original characters, or just go for totally brand new characters?

I reckon some of the characters will be related to the old cast - perhaps one or two - but the rest would be new.
