Ever-present Andy Serkis will be one of the newbies, as Supreme Leader Snoke, alongside John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o and the awesome Max von Sydow. They will all be alongside Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.
JJ Abrams will direct, but once again he’s been proved to be a cheap-ass, since while it’ll appear in 3D in the cinema, just like Star Trek Into Darkness, he’s filming it in 2D, and then doing a post-conversion into 3D. If you’re going to make it 3D, do so from the start!
Word is, however, that some of it WILL be shot with IMAX cameras, since Mission Impossible Rogue Nation could not do the same because the IMAX cameras available were all on the Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens set.
The film will be written by Lawrence Kasdan and JJ Abrams, produced by Kathleen Kennedy, JJ Abrams and Bryan Burk, and the composer, as ever, is John Williams.
Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens will be released in UK cinemas on December 17th 2015. Check out the new Instagram teaser below where John Boyega shows off his blue lightsaber, also showing some already-seen footage from Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. And is he about to fight baddie Kylo Ren? Also, click on the poster for the full-size image:
