Well it seems that, according to Hollywood Insider, we may have missed a vital piece of news while we – and everyone else – were getting bogged down in writer and director news.
Yes, buried away in one of their stories about the new trilogy was this: “The story [of Episode 7] is said to focus on a new generation of heroes and would feature appearances by Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher in older incarnations of their beloved characters from the original Star Wars trilogy.”
Is this the first bit of confirmation? Do they know something we don’t or is it simply fanboy speculation? Whatever it is we’re hoping if we say/write it enough it’ll be true… roll on 2015!
