Get ready for the new daily show

Wait, did Fisher and Hamill already commit to Star Wars Episode 7?

November 13th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Yes, you may have heard there is a new Star Wars trilogy kicking off in 2015 and you may also know we’re slightly excited about the whole thing…

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!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
