You know, I can picture Pettyfer as a son of Skywalker. He's not too far off Hayden Christensen in terms of looks.

Benedict Cumbersnatch is being rumoured for Episode 7 now! I'd personally really like to see him in it - he only brings quality to whatever he's in and (although no word on what part he might be playing) he'd make a great Sith Lord or Admiral Thrawn if they go that way! Just picture him with a blue face and red eyes. Yep - That's Thrawn alright........

Saoirse Ronan has auditoned - but "so has everyone else". Would like to see her in a role, she's a great young actress and often the best thing in any film she's in. We'll just have to wait and see

PLEASE, not Pettyfer... one of the most disagreeable actors ever come out of the UK... he just comes across as a total prick.  Lets not make him a huge international star.

Lucas still being involved isn't a bad thing he's always been a great idea's man. I dislike the prequels as much as anyone but even they had their moments, I certainly wouldn't let him have any input into casting, and when the camera starts rolling I would keep him well away.

JJ films do always seem to be well cast even when eyebrows are raised they prove to be good choices in the end so I'm confident they will make the right decisions. Ronan would be fine with me, what about the Game of Thrones lads Kit Harrington and Richard Madden ? I've always been impressed with them on the show. And just cast Dinklage, in pretty much any role that's available

In his films, Lucas has cast the likes of...

Harrison Ford.
Alec Guiness.
Peter Cushing.
James Earl Jones.
Billy Dee Williams.
Ian Mcdiarmid.
Liam Neeson.
Samuel L. Jackson.
Terence Stamp.
Christopher Lee.

Yeah what was Lucas doing hiring these untalented idiots!

I see you haven't mentioned Jake Lloyd, Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman. I wonder why

Also Samuel L Jackson was terrible, and Terrance Stamp might as well have been an extra in PM and was pretty forgettable in it anyway.

I stand by my comment, Lloyd and Christensen were so bad it completely negates any decent casting that was made in the prequels and only then you could say Neeson, Lee and possibly McGregor. Mcdiarmid was a product of the OT and doesn't count.

I'd say the direction was the issue rather than the casting, generally. I'd be more worried about the levels of Simon Pegg Abrams is about to inject into Star Wars!

I see you havnt mentioned Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

And how does Ian Mcdiarmid not count? My point was that Lucas has cast brilliantly in all his SW films both prequel and original trilogies.Whether you thought some of them were not that good is your own opinion of course but the actors i have mentioned are all highly regarded.

And i have to say it always makes me laugh when original trilogy purists criticise the so called poor acting and dialogue of the prequels and somehow forget scenes like Luke whining '' But i was going into town to pick up some POWER CONVERTERS!!! '' or that death star guy saying '' This station is NOW the ULTIMATE POWER IN THE UNIVERSE!!! ''.

Dont get me wrong, i love those movies but the point is they are of a particular style and i love the prequels for the same reasons i love the OT.

I hope Lucas does have a say in casting but i think JJ is very good at this also.

For the prequels, Lucas surrounded himself with a fairly decent cast and managed to completely suck all the life and spirit out of them. You have to hand it to him, that's a pretty unique talent.

Im not sure casting decisions made 30 years ago is a good gauge on where Lucas is at when it comes to his eye for talent.

Let's hope Lucas hasn't seen Spaced Season 2
Personally, I think you can't have too much Pegg in any nerdy Hollywood blockbuster. I hope he'll get a cameo in the nest X files movie too.

So I'm calling it. Wednesday 30th October - Lucasfilm announce the cast and possible new release date of Episode 7. As Den of geek reports, Lucasfilm has released the original trailers for 'a new hope' last Wednesday, 'empire' yesterday, and 'Jedi' next Wednesday. The following one looks likely. If you also consider that Harrison Ford will be winding down promo duties for Enders Game by then,the studio wouldn't want the spotlight straying from that...

Yes it's AICN, and yes it's further rumour, but it does seem worrying that there are so many reports of 'issues' with the script and the pre-determined release date (doesn't seem like enough time to make the film to me).

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/64910

The article above from AICN suggests that the quality of the film doesn't matter to the CEO of Disney. Well I'm sorry Mr CEO of Disney: The quality of the next Star Wars film is paramount for those of us who really care about the Star Wars saga. The one thing that everyone is clinging to is that Abrams is the man to make another great Star Wars film. The characters and the mythos deserve it. There hasn't been a great Star Wars film since 1980.

Mr Disney CEO, if you're reading (highly doubtful, but you never know with t'internet): Please allow them the time to make this as great as it can be. I'm not sure a generation of people can take another disappointing Star Wars film. Yours...the internet.

I may be in the minority here, but a late 2015 release date seems pretty doable to me. On paper, it seems logical that the more time allowed, will result in a better movie, but this stuff got announced this time last year folks! There's already been a year of prep work.
A couple of years ago, I would probably have said delay it, but Star Trek into Darkness took a whole 4 years to roll around, supposedly due to making it as good as possible. I enjoyed it, but the last third in particular was a general mess. Really? That was the best that the makes could come up with after 4 years?!
