A Note Regarding Spoilers

The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags have been used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.

Bad Robot, the company that is co-producing the film, tweeted out an image of JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and R2-D2 with two fan robot builders. It was then confirmed by the official Star Wars website that R2-D2 would in fact appear in the film and the fans would be building it. On April 29, 2014, Kenny Baker and Anthony Daniels were included in the official cast list released by Lucasfilm, confirming the appearance of the two droids in the film. After all, it wouldn't be Star Wars without them. Set footage and photos also reveal that 3PO appears and also has a new left arm.

No. Episode VII will be an original story, and all stories in comics, books, and graphic novels that tell what happened after "Return of the Jedi" will be called "Star Wars Legends."

Yes. It is Episode VII which follows Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The story will continue 30 years after the end of Episode VI.

At the moment it seems unlikely; while Obi-Wan's ghost appeared in Episode V and VI, him appearing in Episode VII has not yet been confirmed. Given that Sir Alec Guiness, who played Obi-Wan in the original trilogy has long since passed away, it's unlikely he will appear. The only possible ways are using a CG model of Sir Alec and an impersonator for his voice or by reincorporating stock footage of him from previous films or use a new actor to portray him. It's possible that Ewan MacGregor could play the character simply aged with makeup.

Lawrence Kasdan recently confirmed that Lando will not appear in Episode VII, but hinted that he may return. Billy Dee Williams theorizes that because Lando didn't appear until the second film in the original trilogy, that he'll come back for Episode VIII. The interview can be read here.

Sadly, no. Actor Denis Lawson, who played Wedge in the original trilogy was approached to reprise his role. When asked in an interview if he would appear, he simply said; "I'm not going to do that. It would just bore me.". Lawson also turned down a cameo in Episode III as Captain Antilles, the long-time owner of R2-D2 and C-3PO in between Episodes III and IV.

The Narrator's voice in the trailer is Supreme Leader Snoke, although his role in the film has not been revealed nor is it confirmed dialogue from the film.

Mark Hamill confirmed at the SW Celebration that the Line is spoken from Luke Skywalker. Infact, his lines in the trailer are a straight excerpt from a conversation he has with Leia in 'Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi'.

It looked like him saying how much he enjoyed coming to work each day.
