Is Merry Brandybuck set for Star Wars: Episode VII?

June 27th, 2013 by bash Comments

Dominic Monaghan, best known for playing Charlie in Lost (note JJ Abrams’ role in this show) and Merry in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, could well be involved in Star Wars: Episode VII.

The actor was at the premiere of The Lone Ranger this past week when one intrepid reporter decided to ask him about his involvement in the upcoming Star Wars film. While we had no idea there was such rumour beforehand, fair play to the person behind the question.

Here’s what Monaghan had to say: “Well, I can’t answer that question. Ask J.J. Abrams. He’ll know.”

Now, we know this is hardly an earth shattering response, and we’re no psychiatrists either, but just look at Monaghan’s body motion as he answers the question in the video below.

I am putting some money on truth to this rumour. What are your thoughts?

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
