J.J Abranms co-wrote the script with Chris Terrio (Who wrote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. So I guess no Trevorrow script).
Joining the old cast (including Mark Hamill) are Naomi Ackie (Yardie) and Richard E. Grant (The Nutcracker and The Four Realms)
Billy Dee Williams returns as Lando Calrissian.
Princess Leia will once again be played by Carrie Fisher using unused footage from The Force Awakens.
Filming begins next week.
Keri Russell is also involved;
