The (Rumored) Cast Of Star Wars Episode VIII.

Cast Tokyo1With the filming of Star Wars Episode VIII to begin sometime in the next few weeks, now is as good a time as any to revisit who exactly will be appearing in the film. From talk about the returning cast to rumors about who will be the next to arrive in the Galaxy Far, Far Away, this article will have you covered.


A word of warning – this article will spoil key aspects of The Force Awakens (just in case you haven’t seen the movie by now).




According to Kathleen Kennedy, everybody who had top billing on the cast list of The Force Awakens will be coming back. So that means Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (General Leia), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Max Von Sydow (Lor San Tekka) will be returning.


Given that Han Solo and Lor San Tekka both die in The Force Awakens – but will still be appearing in VIII – it’s safe to assume that flashback visions will be employed in this movie. Jimmy Vee will be taking over astromech control duties as R2-D2, while Kenny Baker will presumably continue to serve as a consultant for bringing the droid to life. Kennedy also noted that Gwendoline Christie will return as Captain Phasma with a greatly-expanded role. Warwick Davis will be returning in an unspecified role (some speculate that this may be Wollivan, a character that appeared at Maz’s pub, but nothing has been confirmed on this front).


In addition, Greg Grunberg has noted that he will appear in both VIII and IX. Speaking of IX, Daisy Ridley is signed up to appear in that. Furthermore, Anthony Daniels has confirmed that he’ll be playing C-3PO in IX – and more recently, Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will both be a part of his movie’s ensemble.




So far, Benicio Del Toro is the only new actor who has absolutely confirmed that he will be in the movie. Del Toro has been speculated to be playing a bad guy in this movie – a perception which the actor claims he won’t dispute. As some of you know, Del Toro was previously cast as Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace, but he ultimately left the film after most of the character’s lines were cut from the movie. A long-shot theory is that he might actually get to play an elderly Darth Maul in this (especially in light of the character’s return on Rebels), but it seems more likely that he’ll end up playing a military figure in the First Order.



Geraldine James

The rumor of Geraldine James’s involvement comes from Clone Corridor, who state that the actress is ready for filming for the movie in Spain. My guess is that, presuming she’s in the movie, she’ll almost certainly be playing Rey’s mother, which would explain where Rey’s accent comes from (and, given that she’s about Mark Hamill’s age, this may or may not suggest that Rey is indeed a Skywalker).




And this is where things get confusing. Multiple conflicting reports have come in saying that certain actresses may or may not be in the running for a few new female roles. While some of them have been counted out, it should be remembered that Lupita Nyong’o was thought to be out of the running when she wasn’t included in the initial cast reveal for The Force Awakens, so they might be in the movie yet.

tatiana_maslany gina rodriguez olivia cooke

Let’s start off by discussing the first three actresses in talks for roles. The Wrap reported that Tatiana Maslany, Gina Rodriguez, and Olivia Cooke were all front-runners for a new role in Episode VIII. The role in question apparently required chemistry tests with lead actor John Boyega, suggesting that there would be a numerous scenes between Finn and the new female lead. Also rumored was that the character in question would have blood ties to Han Solo. Of these actresses, it seems as though Maslany will be the least likely to appear in Episode VIII due to conflicts in her schedule (as she’s in talks to appear in a movie about the Boston Marathon bombing incident of 2013).

Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Next up is Gugu Mbatha-Raw, whose name came into the equation when Da7e of Latino-Review reported that there were not one, but two female roles up for grabs. Shortly after Da7e’s report came an article from Collider suggesting that Mbatha-Raw had gone from being on the shortlist to actually being involved in casting discussions with Lucasfilm. If Da7e’s post were to be believed, then Mbatha-Raw got the first of two roles, one of the other actresses would get another, and the story would end there. But then another actress was thrown in the running, and things have been bizarre ever since.

Bel Powley

Finally, we have Bel Powley. On an episode of Meet The Movie Press, The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider reported that Powley and Rodriguez were in the running for a role in the film – and, in addition, noted that Variety‘s John Knoll told him that rumors of Mbatha-Raw’s involvement were greatly exaggerated. Support for this was garnered when it turned out that both lead actress Daisy Ridley and director Rian Johnson both had connections with Powley on their social media accounts.


But later on, Sneider’s commentary on a subsequent episode suggested that neither Powley nor Rodriguez got the role, and that an unknown Asian actress will be getting the role instead. Furthermore, the role in question – and the other female role – are reportedly going to be downsized to some degree in order to give a greater amount of screentime to Finn, Rey, and Poe (among others). So it seems as though we’re all stuck on a wild Bantha chase when it comes to the presence of young actresses appearing in Episode VIII.


My guess is that ultimately, there are a number of female roles that will be included in the movie in varying capacities – and of these, only one or two will actually be “major”. After all, back when production of The Force Awakens was in full swing, it was believed that Maisie Richardson-Sellers’s Korr Sella would be a major character, yet she was only present for a brief shot in the theatrical cut of the movie (though she did get a small-but-important deleted scene).


Hopefully, we’ll get a clear announcement about the cast right around the time filming starts up again (which, again, ought to be very soon). It feels odd knowing that the next Star Wars movie is nearly in the actual production phase when the last one is still in theaters, tearing up box office records.

    Well, hello there, Mara Jade.

    • January 20, 2016 at 10:38 pm

      Hopefully. and that holocron in rebels better be Revan’s.

      • January 21, 2016 at 2:33 am


        Didn’t Filoni confirm that the holocron is Anakin’s?

    • January 21, 2016 at 5:45 am

      Not a chance. You’d have to explain a whole hell of a lot of backstory to anyone who hasn’t read the EU to make her MJ. Can’t see DIsney allowing it.

      • January 21, 2016 at 12:09 pm

        Yep, they gotta keep things simple for the average moviegoer to follow.

        I actually wouldn’t mind it if Rey turned out to be related to Obi Wan, for example, but it could get confusing trying to effectively explain how that works out in a dramatic sense, when there are lots of other matters unfolding in Episode 8. Also, many average moviegoers (younger ones) may not recall the name of Obi Wan, especially if their strongest memory of Star Wars is The Force Awakens.

        So Luke is Rey’s father (this would be the simplest explanation, as established by hints in The Force Awakens), and as for her mother… I predict it could be Felicity Jones’ character in Rogue One, because it’s the simplest and would quickly tie things together from these two most recent incarnations of Star Wars (TFA and RO) that most of the public will remember.

      • January 21, 2016 at 7:11 pm

        Can’t they just say: this is Rey’s mom or this is Luke’s wife? Why do they have to review her entire 30+ year history? In fact, who says her history would necessarily be the same as in the EU?

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    At this point, I’m just going to roll with things and trust in Rian Johnson & Co. to give us a good movie-going experience.

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    Considering that Kathleen Kennedy has already told us that the entire cast of VII would be returning, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who follows this sort of news.

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    Yes it’s confusing to say the least, with all these young actresses presumably in the mix and no certainty if it’s one role or two roles they are casting. Anyways, being there’s several returning characters, that role or those roles are likely small. ‘Major’ as in ‘significant to the story’ but likely not big. There’s just so many characters you can fit in one movie!

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:20 pm

    i’m not sure why every star wars fan takes the verbatim answer of ANYONE associated with lucasfilm to be 100% truth. there’s no need for lor san tekka or han solo to return in episode 8… even if there is a flashback, i don’t understand why they would need to be involved.

    • January 21, 2016 at 12:56 am

      While I partly agree, I for one would actually love to get to know more about Lor San Tekka. He seemed to know a lot and have strong connections to important charcters, but we know nothing about him.

      • January 21, 2016 at 2:45 am

        Expect a comic about him within the next year.

    • January 20, 2016 at 9:23 pm

      I already had found out about that via social media a couple of days ago. Beat you to it 😛

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    Is it possible Kathleen Kennedy listed Harrison Ford and Max Von Sydow as returning simply so as not to give away who dies in Ep 7?

    I’d love it if both actors returned ( perhaps in some sort of Force-Vision ) even if unlikely.

    • January 20, 2016 at 10:37 pm

      Yep. She said that during a conference-speech, either shortly before or shortly after the movie came out. she wouldn’t want to spoil anything.

      • January 21, 2016 at 1:46 am

        She said it at the London premiere, so it was definitely an attempt not to spoil anything. Don’t know why people keep treating it as gospel.

    • January 21, 2016 at 2:25 am

      This has been my theory all along.

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    what if one of those 3 actrices plays a Knight Of Ren ? what if Del Toro is a Knight Of Ren too ? what if the movie has an opening crawl that starts with ” Supreme Leader Snoke has summoned the 7 Knights Of Ren from across the galaxy to his castle to hunt down Skywalker” would be sou cool to get some very interesting actors to play the other 6 knights; each with their own skills.

    • January 21, 2016 at 12:01 pm

      Yeah, as I posted my theory, this young female character is likely a Knight of Ren. I see her starting out within the Resistance, romancing Finn, and then it’s revealed she’s a spy and was one of the 6 Knights standing by Kylo in Rey’s vision.

      I don’t see del Toro playing a Ren. For some reason, I see him playing a “grey” character (as opposed to “good” or “bad”) who has considerable influence in what’s building up between the Resistance/Republic and First Order.

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    Just read the EP8 is delayed from May 2017 to now releasing in Dec 2017

    • January 20, 2016 at 9:57 pm

      I doubt it. Avatar 2 is also 17 december.

      • January 20, 2016 at 9:59 pm

        No its true

        • January 20, 2016 at 10:00 pm

          Really? Is it official?

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:01 pm

            nope, just a rumor.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:01 pm

            Its false then. Avatar 2 is also 2017 december. They wouldn’t play the two mega movies at once.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:03 pm

            true, but thats also assuming avatar is actually finished by then. cameron has been taking his time on it.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:08 pm

            i take it back. care of star wars twitter: “Today, Disney & Lucasfilm announced that #StarWars: Episode VIII will debut on 12/15/17. Stay tuned for updates”

            dang it all. :/

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:10 pm

            Well thats pretty damn surprising. So either Avatar 2 will also be delayed or they will play two giga franchises at once which would cause both to make a lot less money.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:15 pm

            well, avatar will. SW will make cash no matter the competition.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:19 pm

            Not really. Both franchise will suffer this decision. I dont know what are they thinking at Lucasfilm. This delay will cost 100s of millions in revenue loss to Star Wars aswell.
            And if episode VIII is indeed as dark as rumored a lot of people will chose to bring their children/family to Avatar instead at christmas.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:26 pm

            don’t worry, disney doesn’t take a crap without first figuring how much it will cost them. this well thought out weeks in advance. i bet avatar will move in the next few months, just like BvS did when it was on the same day as civil war.

          • January 20, 2016 at 10:28 pm

            Im pretty sure it will. There is 0% chance that the two would be played at once.

          • January 21, 2016 at 1:42 am

            they did the same with THe Force Awakens and I see no damage..

          • January 21, 2016 at 2:44 am

            Avatar wasn’t coming out that year though…

          • January 21, 2016 at 10:12 am

            Yes, but TFA had no competition.

          • January 21, 2016 at 1:41 am

            3 – count in Spielberg´s Ready Player One

          • January 21, 2016 at 5:33 pm

            Yeah Disney tweeted it and everything it’s even on sites like Deadline it’s caused many other movies to shift their dates as well

      • January 20, 2016 at 10:06 pm

        I thought Avatar 2 was a dead project since everyone woke up and realized how awful the first one was.

        • January 20, 2016 at 10:07 pm

          Haha good one. But its Hollywood. If a movie makes money they will milk it as dry as possible.

        • January 21, 2016 at 3:09 am

          James Cameron has pretty much confirmed Avatar 2 – 5. He basically wants to make those movies until he dies apparently…

      • January 20, 2016 at 10:21 pm

        It’s true. All of it.

  • January 20, 2016 at 10:02 pm

    I’ll pleasure all these women

  • January 20, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    Wait, wasn’t it already confirmed that Rey’s parents were characters we already knew? Why are we speculating this new character to be her mother?

    • January 20, 2016 at 10:31 pm

      Pretty sure that Rey’s parentage has not been revealed in any sort of way, thus far.

    • January 21, 2016 at 11:58 am

      It’s been suggested that *one* of her parents is someone we know.

  • January 20, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    in the tradition of blue harvest, the cover title for episode VIII is “space bear”. personally i think they could have got a little more creative. 😉

    • January 20, 2016 at 10:29 pm

      More like, space beer.

    • January 21, 2016 at 1:51 am

      That’s funny… Ever seen “An Idiot Abroad”? In Season 3, Warwick Davis is constantly referred to as “the space bear in Star Wars”.

  • January 20, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    Benicio Del Toro was cast to play Darth Maul in TPM?! And he even had lines? Like a normal character? That would’ve easely saved the whole movie! Lucas you fool…

    • January 20, 2016 at 10:33 pm

      I agree; Maul was MUCH better as a silent, under-developed “character” with one line in the movie and a boring death that ended up being a huge disservice within the context of the larger trilogy and its rogues gallery.

      • January 20, 2016 at 10:38 pm

        I rather think it was a greatly missed oportunity. Del Toro as a villain in his prime in TPM would’ve made the movie so much better. Him beeing a normal character, instead of an underdeveloped ballet-dancer would’ve most likely saved the entire trilogy. I mean Dooku and Grievous were also rather jokes than characters…

        • January 21, 2016 at 12:38 am

          Ehhh, I 1,000% agree about Maul and Dooku, but given his function in the story, I’ll stand by Grievous every time. xD

          I mean he’s a flippin’ cyborg! At first we think he’s this big, intimidating, scary creature who’ll frak you up, then his actions prove him to be a coward. That’s when we get it: CYBORG. He’s already died once – or else has come too close to it for his tastes – and he doesn’t want to do it again. So he’s a coward. But even this is contradicted when he fights Obi-Wan, only to be contradicted AGAIN when he RUNS from Obi-Wan. It’s this great back-and-forth that eventually tells us: Grievous, at his core, is a coward.

          For a sub-villain who has like ten minutes of footage, I think that’s a solid amount of dimension and depth, that doesn’t even draw attention to itself. But it’s there if you want it.

          Same thing with Phasma too: She’s implied to be a cyborg, so when she gets a blaster pointed at her head, it’s only logical that she’d jump on board the NOPE train.

          That’s how I read it anyways – not trying to say your opinions are wrong or anything. All film is subjective. ^^

          • January 21, 2016 at 10:30 am

            Im gonna say this: Del Toro should’ve been the main sub villain for the 3 movies (Grievous indeed isnt that bad villain, I also like cyborgs pretty much, but as a character it was very underdeveloped aswell. He came from nothing, did really nothing and died).

            Just image if Del Toro (with actal motivations, and a great character) would’ve killed Qui-gon and then Obi-wan would’ve pursued him throughout the 3 movies trying to avenge his master, but he would also fear him pretty much (I think Kenobi was also a terrible, and very boring character in the prequels. This chase, would’ve made his character so much more interessting, fightting with his feeling knowing that a jedi should not feel that much hatred, fearing his great enemy, but also empowering him).

            Maybe Del Toro could’ve tryed to kill Sidious to get in power or something.
            But writing 3 different sub villains with no character, only to be there and be evil is the worst thing they could’ve done. This is like screen writing 1.0 I cant hate the prequels more, but getting new informations like this only proves how great those movies could’ve been with competent people in charge. Lawrence Kasdan should’ve written it (to Geroge’s ideas), and Spielberg should’ve directed it.

  • January 20, 2016 at 10:47 pm

    Some main characters need to die here as in the new cast. Hux or Phasma should have been killed in the last one. It’s not a SW trilogy without major casualities.

    • January 21, 2016 at 2:31 am

      Eh, no one major died in Clones or Empire. I think they just reworked that a bit – I expect deaths in VIII and IX. ^^

      • January 21, 2016 at 3:05 am

        Jango Fett died in Clones, he was a decently major villain for that movie

        • January 21, 2016 at 3:10 am

          Yeah, but he didn’t affect the story in a significant way, like Qui-Gon, Padme/figurative Anakin, Obi-Wan, the Emperor, Vader, or Han did. Jango’s death just made Boba a better character.

          I think the real issue of TFA, in terms of death, is how they pretty much ignored the fact that billions upon billions upon billions of New Republic people got blown up. Like, is that not the greatest tragedy in canon? And we just glossed over it?

          There were BILLIONS of casualties in TFA. But like A New Hope, we unfortunately didn’t dwell on it that much, which was a real shame.

          Still made me tear up tho, so I can only complain so much.

      • January 21, 2016 at 3:37 am

        Jango Fett and Shmi Skywalker in Clones. Empire was always the oddball of the series which I think is part of it’s popularity.

        • January 21, 2016 at 4:11 am

          RIP Captain Lorth Needa in Empire

          • January 22, 2016 at 2:22 am

            That’s right! I was always pissed he died since he was the only Imperial officer who took responsibility and it wasn’t even his fault.

  • January 20, 2016 at 10:50 pm

    What is the rumour about filming in Spain? I’m interested… because I’m Spaniard.

  • January 21, 2016 at 12:09 am

    Here’s a thought, what if episode 8, while still being a sequel to the OT, turns out to be a prequel to episode 7?????

    • January 21, 2016 at 12:54 am

      Then we’ll have to wait until 2019 to see Luke.

      • January 21, 2016 at 2:20 am

        Not if “prequel” 8 shows what happened to Luke’s Jedi Academy and why he went into exile.

  • January 21, 2016 at 12:29 am

    Any speculations on who Del Toro is playing? I really don’t have a guess. Hoping for a dark side dude though; maybe a Knight of Ren.

    • January 21, 2016 at 12:59 am


      • January 21, 2016 at 1:12 am

        Y’know, I’m all for cherry-picking the best parts of Legends. Bring it.

    • January 21, 2016 at 2:19 am

      Maz Kanata’s twin brother! 😉

    • January 21, 2016 at 2:42 am

      I *want* him to play a badass bounty hunter with a fancy British accent (he would sound like JARVIS) who accompanies Phasma in taking down the team.

        • January 21, 2016 at 3:37 am

          i agree, though del toro is a close second. he’s such a great actor and blends into his roles really well. he could bring so much to thrawn. 🙂

  • January 21, 2016 at 4:48 am

    You know, in my interior fan-fiction, I always pictured Darth Maul as a scene-stealing chatterbox a la Peter O’Toole or Tom Hiddleston’s wheelhouse, I always felt making him a silent thug was a massive missed opportunity.
    Could you imagine if Darth Maul appeared in Episode II, drunk and depressed about his failure to fight Obiwan, but also blaming Sidious for sending him into such a hard fight, resulting in a weird love-hate relationship with sidious where Maul’s not really a villain per se, where he’s rooting for sidious from the sideline, but cornered into giving the Jedi intel/advice/insults. Sidious and Dooku VS the Jedi Order VS Darth Maul with a cameo from Jango fett should have been the plot of Episode II.
    That being my attitude, I would LOVE for Benicio del Toro to play Darth Maul in anything.

    • January 23, 2016 at 2:36 pm

      While I like your ideas about potential Maul uses, I think the silence added significantly to his aura of fear. He was literally nothing but a Jedi-hating killing machine. Which was a good way to introduce that aspect of the Sith, and also show why it was insufficient to actually accomplish much.

  • January 21, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Holograms not flashbacks,

  • January 21, 2016 at 11:54 am

    Just my fanciful theories:

    1. del Toro’s character is not a politician, Jedi, Sith, First Order, Resistance, bounty hunter. I see his character as running the galaxy’s largest military arms manufacturer, and he wants the contract to build the military expansion of the Resistance fleet. He’s human and neither a good guy nor bad guy.

    2. James is not playing Rey’s mother; she’s playing Hux’s mother, a character who has influential connection within the First Order and perhaps the Empire before it.

    3. The young female character (that all four of these actresses could be auditioning for) will be revealed to be one of the six Knights of Ren. This character is human. She may be attempting to infiltrate the Resistance by romancing Finn.

  • January 21, 2016 at 1:27 pm

    My whole theory about Rey:

    Her father is Luke; her mother is Felicity Jones’ character in Rogue One.

    Luke and Jones’ character didn’t stay together. Rey’s mother didn’t like the idea of her daughter becoming strong with the Force, and keeps her away from her father. Rey never met Luke as a little child, but Luke knows he has a daughter. He went off to start his new Jedi academy.

    15 years before The Force Awakens, the Knights of Ren slaughtered everyone at Luke’s academy. They left Luke alive on purpose. Ben Solo was just 17, and was ordered to lead the attack as a test of loyalty to the Ren — it was at this event that he earned his place within them and became “Kylo Ren”. Kylo learns from mind-raping Luke that “there is another” (Rey).

    Before Luke goes into seclusion, he programs R2D2 with part of the map of where he will be, and sends him to Leia. Once R2 is back with Leia, R2 goes into sleep mode.

    Luke visits Jones’ character and says Rey (who is now age 8) is in danger. He gives the other part of the map to her.

    She puts Rey on Jaaku in the care of other humans, and gives the other part of the map of Luke’s location to Tekka.

    Rey’s mother promises her daughter she will return soon — Jaaku was originally only meant to be a temporary safe spot for Rey.

    As Rey’s mother’s ship leaves, a crying young Rey tries to run up to the ship — she collides into Plutt, who snatches her hand and scolds her as she sees her mother’s ship take off. (So the context is, she wasn’t actually left in Plutt’s care. But this is how Rey first met Plutt, and why she doesn’t like it when Finn grabs her hand.)

    In The Force Awakens, when Anakin’s saber goes to Rey, Kylo then recognizes Rey as the one who Luke knew about who’s strong with the Force who was not at the academy. In the movie’s novelization, Kylo says to Rey “It IS you!”

    In The Force Awakens, when Rey arrives on the Resistance base, R2 wakes up… Luke programmed R2 to wake up when Rey approached his vicinity, in order to give her the rest of the map.

      I really can’t see this because:

      1. Felicity Jones’s character father designed the DS weaponry
      2. Felicity Jones’s character leads a squad in to capture the DS plans
      3. Luke Skywalker eventually blows up the DS
      4. They have a kid together

      Too much of a coincidence.

    Serious Question: Do you really need to see Thrawn on-screen as a similar character but NOT in the Thrawn story?

    He will be short-changed no matter how you slice it. We have a whole entire new cast with a massive story in front of them. You’re not going to get the Thrawn from the novels, its basically impossible and you’ll all encounter fanboy-nerd rage over Thrawn not getting enough screen time.

    I love Thrawn, but he has his legend, and I love it. Why ruin a perfect thing? (And even if it’s good, people will rage over – “oh you see!!! they should have just done legends, disney iz sooo stoopid, blahc blahd ajdsiwedpsndhd”

    I believe Del Toro’s character will be the Grand Admiral of the First Order. The Starkiller Base was only a one shot weapon. Snoke just needed to decapitate the New Republic gov’t causing chaos. Allowing The Grand admiral to attack and capture as many of the important systems for the First Order. This is going to be a Battlefront type scenario.

    Both Kylo and Hux failed to protect the starkiller base so that there should be more formidable nemesis in First Order,who should replace Hux. That person is DelTolo, who also uses darkside of the force.

      Del Toro is totally nu-Thrawn. Though ancient creaky Darth Maul would be cool too, its a bit too obscure since the majority of the audience will think he died on Naboo and find it cheap and cheesy for him to come back with robot legs.

    I really hope we get to see some more new male actors as well. I mean, I’ve got nothing against strong female lead roles at all, but I know Kennedy is a big time feminist, so I’ve got this feeling that the entire new trilogy is gonna be one big female empowerment saga.

    Wtf no Ford and Sydow are not coming back in a flashback. Common its not like Kennedy is going to be like “everyone is coming back EXCEPT these two.” Like common

    Say what you want (and I am all for diversity), but I hope that Star Wars doesn’t get filled with female leads, this is primarily a male orientated kind of genre anyway(you know it to be true), let’s be honest here.
