Didn't get a chance to post yesterday, but such exciting news. I know there have been heavy rumors about the original cast returning, but seeing them all sitting there together is really cool. It was sort of strange, seeing this yesterday it was sort of a "wow, this is really happening" sort of thing. I know they are older and everything, but it will still be great - at least to me - to see Harrison, Mark, and Carrie (as well as Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker) all together again in a Star Wars movie.
As far as the new cast, honestly aside from Domhall Gleason and Andy Serkis, I don't know that I've seen them in much of anything, but that doesn't bother me. I think it was pretty true of the original cast as well, and that turned out great. Really curious to see who everyone is playing now, so I wonder how long we'll have to wait for more information there. I'm wondering if maybe Daisy Ridley is playing Han/Leia's kiddo? I know my daughter would be pretty psyched for that. I know there are rumors for some of the other roles, but you just never know. I mean, Andy Serkis? That was out of nowhere too, it seems, but makes perfect sense.
After primarily following Marvel movie news the past few years, its great to be back in "Star Wars hype" mode again. Hopefully we won't have to wait this long for another bit of news. Looking forward to having all the speculative discussions like during the prequel days here on the forums.
