‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Production Teaser: Cut, Beautiful

This is where we are, regarding the insanity that is Star Wars. A teaser announcing the production for the next movie. And like, it’s probably obvious (given that I’ve seen The Force Awakens six times), but I’m all about it. Oh! The LordsofHype at DisneyStarFlick have also provided an official cast announcement.

The Mary Sue:

Star Wars: Episode VIII is on the way, if a few months later than we thought it was coming, and it’ll have a few new faces to join the more familiar ones in this production teaser.

Check out the full casting announcement, which features not only the additions to the saga but also confirmation of the return of some of The Force Awakens‘ players:

Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and talented newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

Maybe we’ll finally get to see some of Maz Kanata’s (Lupita Nyong’o) Force abilities this time around, and we will definitely get to see Dohmnall Gleeson’s General Hux chew some more scenery. With that out of the way, allow us to react to the new additions appropriately:
