The media outletEvening Standard has announced that Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm Ltd., has officially confirmed that the entire cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be back for the next installment of the saga.
This Article contains spoilers for The Force Awakens, continue at your own risk ;)
Aside from some new characters, Kennedy said that Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will all appear in Episode VIII, as will our new heroes John Boyega and Daisy Ridley.
This is impossible, right? Han Solo bit the dust (or the lightsaber) at the hands of his son Ben Solo, A.K.A. Kylo Ren. Will this be in a flashback? Will he be cloned? Or will it be some special force mumbo jumbo? Maybe a flashback from the time Ben Solo turned into Kylo Ren. At this point everything is possible.
There is another possibility: Kathleen Kennedy said this on Wednesday at the Hollywood premiere. So maybe she just said this so she wouldn't give the movie's dramatic climax away. We will see in a couple of years.
