‘Star Wars: Episode 7′: J.J. Abrams Wishes Fans a Happy ‘Star Wars’ Day From the Set!

Subscribe to Power 95.9 on

We’ve got even more ‘Star Wars’ goodies for you! Director J.J. Abrams is getting in on the action today with a very special “video selfie” with screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, wishing fans a happy ‘Star Wars’ day from the set of ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ in London, and he seems to be teasing some additional casting. 

The short video (just 24 seconds long) features Abrams and Kasdan in what Abrams refers to as a “video selfie” from the set, where he just wants to spread a little cheer on this sacred holiday for ‘Star Wars’ fans around the globe. Abrams gives a little greeting and assures us that production is ramping up on the new film, as well as casting announcements — we’d already heard that on the heels of the first official casting news, at least one other female role was yet to be announced.

While it’s certainly not a hugely spectacular video, it’s nice to see Abrams and Kasdan doing something for the fans to commemorate this geeky day. The first official casting announcement came last week, and so far the cast includes Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, and Max von Sydow. They’ll be joining original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, and Kenny Baker in ‘Episode 7,’ which kicks off a brand new trilogy.

As always, May the Fourth be with you!
