eldritchhobbit: (Star Wars/Mock)
[personal profile] eldritchhobbit
Right. So the cast of Star Wars VII has been announced. Beyond the welcome familiar faces are some interesting names. I wonder in particular what the presence of Andy Serkis suggests. After all, he's made himself synonymous with pioneering CGI-assisted performances.

We also know the following:
* Several names were conspicuously absent from the announced list.
* The Expanded Universe has been Jossed. (TBH, we've known that was coming for some time.) The existing (now non-canonical) EU stories will be labeled "Legends."
* More casting news is to come.

Your thoughts on the news?

To quote Wash from Serenity, "Do we care? Are we caring about that?"


Some reactions:
* From DenofGeek: "Some Thoughts on the Star Wars Episode VII Casting."
* From EW: "22 Immediate Reactions to the Star Wars Casting Announcement."
* From HitFix: "Gender Politics and the Casting of Star Wars."
* from io9: "Hey Star Wars - Where the Hell Are the Women?"
