The cast of Star Wars: Episode VII has finally been unveiled.

According to a release on the official Star Wars website the film's principal cast will include a variety of actors including John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley(Blue Witness), Adam Driver(Girls), Oscar Isaac(Sucker Punch), Andy Serkis(The Lord of the Rings), Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Max von Sydow (The Exorcist). They will join the franchise's original stars, including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.

"We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII," said director J.J. Abrams. "It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

As "surreal" as it may be for Abrams, this bulk is likely to inspire a lot of excitement in the franchise's, many of whom have been debating and speculating about the potential identities for the new cast. Just personally the presence of skilled and veteran actors like Max von Sydow and Andy Serkis does a lot to strengthen my confidence in the film which, at times, has seemed to going through some less than stellar developments. What's your take on the revealed cast? Does the Force seem strong with this one or has it turned to the Dark Side?
