Those obsessed with intergalactic space happenings can rejoice, the long anticipated Stars Wars:Episode VII cast has finally been announced.
Surprise! Disney announced on Tuesday that it’s the original cast coming back for the sequel! Bet you didn’t see that coming. There are also some newcomers thrown into the mix while John Williams will once again create the musical score.
Following the announcement, practically everyone who’s ever seen Star Wars – and even those who haven’t – took to Twitter, discussing everything from excitement to dismay over the cast of characters for the seventh movie in the series.
Many long term fans are excited over the announcement.
Star Wars cast is out and I’m dumb enough to be excited because I didn’t learn my lesson from the prequels: http://t.co/seZ5HJhHIq

Watching the new STAR WARS cast announced is like watching a bunch of wolves coo over a baby they’re going to eat later.

Also, as many have pointed out, there are only two women in the cast.

While that might be double the amount cast in the original film, it’s still not enough.
Really Star Wars? One out of the six new characters is female? Come on…

Oh wait! Make that three! Out of a cast of…13.
Push pause on your outrage, Star Wars is casting another major female role. http://t.co/GHl0wa1Knd

According to this theory though, the gender gap seems not so wide.
Star Wars doesn’t need as many women as most films, as those there are do double duty as both siblings & love interests. Efficiency, that is

Some admit to never seeing the classic series.
Admission of the day: I’ve never seen any of the Star Wars movies and I don’t feel all that bad about it.

While others are excited for the parodies of the new film.
I’m getting excited about the new Star Wars film but mainly because I want to see the Family Guy version of it.

Everyone has been talking about this photo.

But not for this reason, which we think is the best.
I just can’t get over Chewbacca intently studying the script in that Star Wars photo.
