Judi Dench To Play Star Wars' Mon Mothma?

21 January 2014 1:08 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's been some crazy rumors regarding potential casting for J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII," but today comes the most out there yet.

Full of Sith claim that Dame Judi Dench is being considered to play the elderly version of Mon Mothma, the senator who co-ordinated and gave the Rebel Alliance briefing in "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi".

Caroline Blakiston played the role in the original, a 30-second scene, while Genevieve O'Reilly played a young version of the character in a small role in "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith". The character has since been expanded greatly in non-canon books, cartoons and comics.

In terms of far more confirmed news, Abrams himself said at the TCAs that filming on the movie officially begins in May in the United Kingdom. »
