Of course, director JJ Abrams could be pulling one final act of misdirection on us, but assuming, not, we finally have some confirmations as to who will be in the next instalment of the now-Disnet owned Star Wars saga. Empire has a handy cheat sheet here, and it seems we have on board the Millennium Falcon the likes of John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness, Mr Selfridge), Oscar Isaac (Inside Lewyn Davis), Domnhall Gleeson (About Time) ....and yes, Adam Driver (Girls)! Even Max von Sydow from The Seventh Seal will be making an appearance. Also long rumoured to return are the original trilogy main cast members: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew (Luke, Han, Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Chewbacca respectively).
