Star Wars Day Video Greetings From J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan


The Star Wars Episode VII writing team of J.J. Abrams (who will also direct the film) and Lawrence Kasdan (who co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back) sent a video message to fans today for Star Wars Day. Mostly it's just a "selfie" and a happy Star Wars Day, but it's worth noting that Abrams says, "as casting announcements continue...." That seemingly confirms earlier reports that the table read presented earlier this week is only partial cast list and that there are more roles to be announced which are important enough to merit their own announcement. After some consternation earlier this week about under-representation of women and minorities, it was suggested that at least one of the as-yet-unannounced roles will be a major one for a female.
