Star Wars 7 Will Feature A Cast Of Unknowns

According to actor, Dominic Monaghan, JJ Abrams will be casting unknowns only in Star Wars Episode 7.

The idea is to follow the casting process of Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope, whose primary cast members, Marc Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford were all unknown at the time.

The logic is, says Monaghan, who appeared in JJ Abrams TV show, Lost, and the Lord of the Rings films, that casting big name actors will take fans out of the Star Wars universe.

‘What he said was, we don’t want to fall into that mistake of people going “Oh it’s that guy from that thing!” and then you’re completely out of the Star Wars universe.’

Star Wars Episode VII is due in UK cinemas on December 18th 2015.
