Welcome back to Part II of the Fantasy Casting for Star Wars Episode VII. In last week’s first part we started with four key characters centering on the Skywalker/Solo families and one minor character that is fairly new to the Star Wars Expanded Universe. On this week’s edition we’re going to introduce five more noteworthy characters that have played pivotal roles in the Expanded Universe that could play important roles in Episode VII and the new trilogy. If you’d like to review last week’s article, feel free to stop here first before moving on to this week.

New details have emerged since our last article revolving around the writers. It was originally reported but now apparently rumored again, that writers Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg would be on board for Episodes VIII & IX. Reports are now swirling that these two may be involved with more character centric stories. »
