JJ Abrams Lawrence Kasdan Star Wars Day

All the way from London,  J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, the two men who will now be directing the course of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, have released this short but sweet “video selfie”  wishing fans a Happy Star Wars Day.

Don’t get too excited as Abrams reveals nothing in the video but does promise that more casting announcements are coming (anyone else hoping a Lando Calrissian appearance?).  As for the results of the table read that also announced the cast, sources say that Abrams and Kasdan have yet to finalize the script and are still working on it. This is not uncommon in a big budget film as this is part of the reason for table reads – which is to see what works and what doesn’t in a script.

Anyway, this is a great way to end ‘Star Wars Day’, don’t you think?

May the Fourth be with you!
