The cast for the new Star Wars film was announced today, and it included many fresh faces as well as several older ones.

Starring in JJ Abrams' new Star Wars are: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Max von Sydow, Andy Serkis and Domhnall Gleeson.

They join returning Star Wars veterans Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. Peter Mayhew is also back as Chewbacca and Kenny Baker will reprise RD-D2.

A photo published on StarWars.com showed director JJ Abrams helming the first script read with the cast in London, ahead of shooting which is due to begin in June.
