We might still have a good six months to wait until the release of
the latest instalment in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi, but that
doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about what – or more specifically, who –
we’re going to see in the forthcoming films.
Currently very little is known about the as yet untitled Episode
IX or the similarly untitled third film in the Star Wars anthology series, other
than wishful rumours that it could be an Obi -Wan Kenobi origin story. So while
details remain hush-hush we’ll concentrate on what we do know about the cast
members behind The Last Jedi and the solo Han Solo movie set for release next
Things might get emotional with The Last Jedi being one of Carrie
Fisher’s last performances, but we’ll also be treated to juicier roles from
franchise favourites, a few new cast members and the delightfully dashing actor
about to fill Harrison Ford’s shoes as the young Han Solo.
Read on for the performances we can't wait to see in that galaxy far, far away...
