'Star Wars: Episode 7': Original Trilogy Cast Members Spotted in London

Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford set for Star Wars: Episode 7

[The full Episode VII cast has been revealed! CLCK HERE for Details!]


With no official casting announcements for Star Wars: Episode VII thus far, rumor has it that a major update on director J.J. Abrams' space adventure will be arriving on this year's fast-approaching Star Wars Day, a.k.a. May 4th. Of course, if you've been following progress on Episode VII since the beginning, then you've known for a while now that at least three familiar faces will be in the film (not including R2-D2, C-PO and/or Chewbacca, though they're coming back too).

It was over a year ago when Star Wars creator - and Episode VII creative consultant - George Lucas let slip that Star Wars: Episode IV-VI stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford had already entered the "final stages of negotiation" to join the Episode VII cast; since then, Fisher has indicated multiple times that she and her fellow original Star Wars trilogy costars are, indeed, reprising as the older versions of their respective characters (Luke, Leia, and Han) in Abrams' film.

Sooner, rather than later, we expect that Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm will finally issue an official press release, confirming that fan-favorites Hamill, Fisher, and Ford are part of Episode VII - possibly, at the same time, also revealing which of the rumored newcomers will help to bring a younger generation of characters to life in Abrams' movie.

Until then, enjoy these Tweets and images that show (or tease) that the aforementioned Star Wars veterans having made their way to London, where the bulk of principal photography on Episode VII is taking place. There's nothing all that revelatory about them, though it's worth noting that a slimmed-down Hamill appears to have grown some Obi-Wan Kenobi-style facial hair, in order to portray Luke Skywalker the seasoned Jedi Master properly.
