Star Wars Episode VII Plot And Casting Details Revealed?

25 February 2014

There has been casting and plot reports surrounding the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII movie for months now, but according to new claims, the wait might finally be over, as a "top source" has reportedly dished the dirt on the eagerly anticipated flick.

According to 3D blog Market Saw, Benedict Cumerbatch and Gary Oldman are amongst the actors that have been cast, with the insider also hinting that the actors may be up for completely different parts, despite both being British.

"Ian McDiarmid, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davies, Benedict Cumberbatch and Gary Oldman [have been cast]," he said of the J.J. Abrams-directed film. "I believe Cumberbatch and Oldman were pursued for the same role, but I don't know how that will work out with the script changes, but I'm told they are both involved."

And in terms of the plot, the source continued to say: "Ultimately it's about twins," adding: "Which will take a path towards darkness and which will follow in their father's footsteps, or at least that is what it used to be, that may come later as I think changes are being undertaken to bring the original cast into the forefront of the story leading to ramifications that lead up to the next generation of Skywalkers."

It had previously been suggested that the Solo twin, Jaina and Jacen, in the novels could be the main thrust of the story. However, the source goes on to say that there is some "issues" when it comes to this storyline.

"Many Star Wars pre-production issues," he said. "An 'inadequate' central story which nobody would stamp off on, a problematic initial release date and an 'indecisive' director (J.J. Abrams) with the hardest gig in the industry. It's not going to be a cakewalk, but it will be a product shipping with the majority of its original parts."

Star Wars: Episode VII has a planned 2015 release date, with cast and crew allegedly aiming to start filming in May 2014.
