Star Wars Episode IX Cast Announced! New Faces Arrive and Legends Return

Almost all the starring faces that will be a part of the Finale in the ‘Skywalker Saga” have been announced! Of course we will see returning faces like Daisy Ridley as Rei, and John Boyega as Finn still, but further listings in the announcement come as a shock. First off we actually have two notable new faces to mention, those being Richard Grant (Dr. Rice in Logan as a highlight) and Naomi Ackie (seen in Lady Macbeth as Anna). Now, their roles are currently still unnamed so to what capacity we will see from these two is uncertain, but  I’m sure Grant and Ackie will be welcomed editions that will bring their own styles into the film in and make it even better. Secondly, we actually have returning actors in the form of Billy Dee Williams reprising Lando Calrissian and… Carrie Fisher (thanks to the blessing of Fisher’s daughter, Billie) will be in the film by utilizing “Unseen Footage” as Director J.J Abrams puts it.

So, start up the Hype Train for Episode 9, sometimes me that this train will be an unstoppable force for the next few years!

Until Next Time, Alt Rock On!
