Yesterday, the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' cast was announced, revealed alongside a group photo of the assembled team at the first table read in London. At the time, we only had a Facebook-sized photo, which made it somewhat difficult to parse who's who. Now, we've gotten our hands on a big, hi-res version and we've added some annotations so you clearly see who was in attendance.

It's happened: they've officially announced the cast of 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' We knew that original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher would be returning to the roles that made their careers, but it's the new cast members that have us really excited. It's going to be nice to see Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia Organa reunited on the big screen, but it's going to be truly exciting to see what characters director J.J. Abrams will create from scratch.
The new cast members are a fantastic combo of established character actors, on-the-rise stars, living legends and complete unknowns. But, just in case you aren't familiar with them we've assembled a basic primer. Here's what you need to know about each of the new additions to the 'Star Wars' universe!

With 'Star Wars: Episode 7' scheduled to start shooting in less than three weeks, we're pretty much guaranteed to know who will be cast in the film shortly, and all evidence suggests an announcement will be made some time on or around May 4, 'Star Wars' Day.

For a while now, we've been crossing our fingers and hoping Benedict Cumberbatch would soon be announced with a role in the forthcoming 'Star Wars: Episode 7'-led trilogy. Early reports placed him as a frontrunner and stated that he (along with pretty much everyone else in Hollywood) had met with his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' director J.J. Abrams. However, when all is said and done, it looks like this ship has sailed.

'Star Wars: Episode 7' has had so many potential cast members at this point that we just want to throw our hands up in the air, yell "Figure it out already!" and return only when director J.J. Abrams is ready to reveal his final ensemble. But alas, the draw of George Lucas' science fiction universe is too great and we can't help but cling to every scrap of information and ever rumor as if our life depended on it. The latest buzz circling around the internet is that relatively unknown British actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers is being eyed for a leading role.

On Monday, it was confirmed that Chewbacca will be returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ – joining R2-D2 as the only confirmed character returning for the sequel, along with newcomer Adam Driver, whose deal is likely closed already.
Still not confirmed for ‘Episode 7’ include the likes of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo and ... Lumpy.
Lumpy, if you don’t remember, made his ‘Star Wars’ debut during the 1978 ‘Star Wars Holiday Special.’ The son of Chewbacca is now a 46-year-old real estate broker and we were lucky enough to catch up with him to find out if he, too, will be following his father back to the big screen in ‘Episode 7.’
