Star Wars 7 Cast Announced: Princess Leia now “Leia Solo” on IMDB


Star Wars 7 cast has been announced: Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher will reprise their classic roles along with the actors who played or voiced R2D2, C3PO, and Chewbacca. New to the cast will be Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. Maybe Andy Serkis is Yoda.

Anyway, I told you quite a long time ago Ford, Fisher and Hamill would be back. Episode 7 takes place long after “Return of the Jedi,” so our three main characters will be appropriately aged. Keep refreshing for more news…

Princess Leia now listed on IMDB as “Leia Solo.” Just FYI. I guess the marriage lasted.
