In some surprising, but pretty great news, the ever awesome Domhnall Gleeson has been announced as part of the cast for JJ Abrams new Star Wars movie, Star Wars: Episode 7, while the original cast will pretty much all be returning. 

According to the official Star Wars website, joining him are John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow while original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Bake will also appear. 


In typical JJ Abrams fashion, he managed to keep some pretty massive news from the press. Notably the return of the entire main original cast. Which was rumoured at points, but never thought really likely.

Naturally enough, said official Star Wars site has just crashed from the billion odd people on it.
