In recent post we spoke about the familiar characters set for a return in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars Episode 7 cast, and it seems that the likes of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are set to reprise their roles, so what new characters can we expect?
While fans question whether the next film will involve characters from the expanded universe Disney are giving us the impression there is no guarantee this will be the case. Therefore, a fresh story and new characters may not keep in line with what fans are led to believe.
It is worth considering what new faces will be involved in the next film and Digital Spy highlight Sam Witwer’s hopes of being called up for an opportunity to take up a role in the next film. Witwer, known for his part in the US remake of Being Human has some Star Wars related experience to his name, providing the voice of Darth Maul in The Clone Wars, and voicing Sith Lord apprentice Galen Marek (aka Starkiller) in various Star Wars video games.
Being a lifelong fan of the franchise, Witwer states how he would jump at the chance to audition for the new movie highlighting his love for everything Star Wars including the books and videogames. While fans of the Starkiller would love to see this introduced into the next film, it’s easy to see why a vast majority of actors would relish a part in Episode 7 and we recently mentioned the children of both Princess Leia and Han Solo if they continue to introduce twins Jaina and Jacen.

'Star Wars Episode 7' News Update : Could Disney and Paramount Fight Over J.J Abrams' Attention?From Latino Post
Ever since the election of J.J Abrams as the director of Star Wars, there has been criticism on how the director will manage with "Star Trek" and "Star Wars."
Recently in an interview with Empire Star Trek Into Darkness writer Richard Orci stated that Paramount and Disney may clash on how to promote their franchises. He stated "First I was happy for J.J., but I definitely felt a disturbance in the Force - which, incidentally, was first felt by Spock on the original series of Star Trek: when 400 Vulcans died he felt it across space, just like Ben Kenobi, but a decade ahead..."
He added "Anyway, we're all fans of Star Wars. Still, this is going to affect calendars and now it's two massive corporations having to vie for the right attention to each of these properties. But hopefully it will be fine.I don't know how much Paramount and other studios have to cooperate with each other. But I think everyone will explore every possibility fairly. And even if he goes completely Star Wars, we know now - he can't ever deny it - he is a big Star Trek fan!"
Bad Motivator T-Shirt is the Best Star Wars J.J. Abrams Mashup Yet
Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been a fan of the Star Wars saga - so I was pretty excited to hear that with the Disney LucasFilm acquisition, new movies would be on the way. Of course, with J.J. Abrams behind the camera of Episode VII, the franchise could definitely go in a different direction, with more mysteries and unanswered questions as J.J. has been known for. One thing is for certain, there will be plenty of lens flare.
