Check out our reaction to the brand new cast list announcement for Star Wars Episode IX. The names attached are the ones that Star Wars fans love. Veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels Billy Dee Williams (who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian) and yes, even Carrie Fisher are all included.
Our beloved Leia Organa will not be forgotten in Episode 9, but she will return in the form of previously unseen footage of Carrie from The Force Awakens. No CGI will be used to recreate Fisher’s role, but the old footage will be worked into the film in some fashion.
Also returning, in Episode 9 is Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant and Keri Russell.
Star Wars Episode 9 is set to release in December 2019.
