    I will miss this thread when it is gone. Except that we will have actual casting to speak about at that point...

    Hermione (Bagwa) was already in Star Wars - a waitress in Dex's Diner.

    Unless someone found in an open audition broke their NDA and leaked info, we would never know that they'd been cast. The press can only cover what they're tipped off about.

    Anyway, I think when he says, "essentially unknowns", he means we shouldn't expect to see, say, Zac Efron. Not people who have nothing on their resume whatsoever, but people who still aren't very well known. That fits with a lot of the names that have been leaking so far (Adam Driver only having Girls, Lupita Nyong'o only having 12 Years a Slave, John Boyega only having Attack the Block, etc.) None of them are mainstream stars yet. Like Carrie, Mark, and Harrison when they got cast.

    No, no, no-I know we wouldn't know who was cast or even necessarily under consideration. I just mean that you'd think that there would be people taking more pictures, doing interviews, etc. of the people who were in line to audition or whatnot.

    The open casting sounded like a big publicity stunt, yet it got pretty much no attention or coverage whatsoever. What's the point in having an open casting call if it's shrouded in complete secrecy.

    Me too, I won't be satisfied until I see Chewie back as his old break-dancing self.

    You'd prefer another five pages of posts on the merits of Katy Perry appearing in the ST? :D

    Seriously though, if Chewbacca returns for the ST, I'd much prefer Peter be the one to don the costume for as much time as his health allows him to.

    I'm not the first person to make this joke, but Chewie will appear with a moon on his head. ;)

    I am surprised JJ, Disney or LFL has not yet sent their lawyers to bring down that tweet
