What We Already Knew About Star Wars: 3 Returning Characters & Their Kids
Well, I think we already knew this.
Previously, it's been said that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford would be returning (no-brainer), and that the movie would focus on a/some of their kid/s.
This actually came out shortly after the Star Wars deal was announced, albeit I suppose a rumor, but the recent news hasn't been officially confirmed as well, so I suppose it's a rumor on top of another.
But we do perhaps get more of an update from ShowBiz411 who says that Star Wars Episode VII movie will feature the children as the new main stars, and that they think R2D2 and C-3PO will be unchanged.
Again not really surprising, but if true, tells us that the original characters may be passing the baton in the movie perhaps rather quickly.
They do note, though, that the big question is not who is returning, but what actors will be playing the younger characters?
Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date directed by J.J. Abrams.
