If the original 'Star Wars' defined cinema for countless people, the scene that probably sealed the deal was the Mos Eisley Cantina. Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrive in this wretched hive of scum and villainy looking for transport off of Tattooine, but before they meet Han Solo, they rub elbows with all kinds of crazy-looking aliens. Some are humanoid, some are giant bugs. Some are entirely passive and others get their arms sliced off by a lightsaber. It's a sequence so iconic and immersive that it's easy to forget that all of those aliens were designed and built in a shop before being strapped onto an actor's body.

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.

'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.

Lucasfilm

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.’
