Hiya Nerdy Ninjas!
Welcome to this weeks ninja wrap Star Wars edition! I hope you all had a very happy May the fourth, Happy Star Wars Day!!
Let’s celebrate with all things the wars!!
The internet pretty much blew up like the Death Star with the Star Wars casting news. Firstly can I just say how much I love this picture, my favourite part of this photo is R2D2 hanging in the back in his little crate, so cute!!
I was so excited to see the gang back together!! (It would of been so great to have also seen Billy Dee Williams back- I love Lando)
Mark Hamill, aka Luke Friggin Skywalker, tweeted out the news on his twitter and this, my friends, may be one of the greatest tweets of all time!!
Along with the old came a lot of new fresh faces which is super exciting for them and the industry. Sadly though there was only one woman cast other than our beloved Princess Leia.
Some of the new comers cast are Adam Driver from Girls and the lovely Daisy Ridley who to me looks exactly like Jaina Solo. I know JJ Abrams has expressed that we won’t see the EU storyline (I was really hoping for the Jaina and Jancen storyline). I’m sure we will still see the relationship of Leia & Han and their children, the question is will we see Luke’s beloved Mara Jade with casting announcements still to be announced, let’s hope so.
The Lego creations were completed on May the 4th with the world record breaking four metre tall Darth Vader and a 2 metre tall Master Yoda. Check out the finished Lego Star Wars sculptures… Awesome!
