https://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-episode-ix-cast-announced

Episode IX begins filming in a few days, and they officially announced the cast yesterday.

Quote:
Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, and Keri Russell, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.


And I called it on Leia: They are using unused footage of her from TFA so Leia has a presence in the film. They reaffirmed that they are not using CG or recasting her.

Excellent. Thank you, sir.

Looking forward to seeing Lando once more and apparently Luke's Force ghost.

I normally don't post these news/speculation threads for new movies until the title is announced, but for this one I didn't wait for that. They'll probably announce the title in December or January.

So the big rumors out there now are that Richard E. Grant is playing Thrawn and/or Keri Russel is playing Mara Jade. I'd be surprised if either of these is true, but at this point I hope they are true. After TLJ I just want a good Star Wars movie so I don't care who is in it if it's good. And this level of fan service should hopefully stifle a lot of the hatred in the fandom right now.

I agree completely, though I'd be truly gobsmacked if they used Zahn's characters here. (And personally, while I like Kari Russel in many things, she strikes me as being very far from Mara Jade? I've been wrong before though.)

Way back when the first X-Men movie came out, I didn't think Hugh Jackman could pull off Wolverine.... boy was I wrong...

Anne Hathaway as Catwiman is another example of a pleasant surprise.

I can't imagine logan without Jackman's face these days.. So yes, someone we don't know CAN do a great job in a role, and make it their own.

Thank the Force they are bringing back Lando Calrissian. Ep IX would have been poorer for his absence.

So now they are saying there is also a little unused footage from TLJ that can be used for Leia in Episode IX.

I seriously doubt they'd stoop to that.
