The official cast for Star Wars: Episode VII has been revealed and while it isn’t the giant star-studded list that most current big named adaptations seem to carry, there’s some sizeable talent to deal with. Per the official Star Wars site, the cast was revealed along with a photo of a table read of the group.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.

“We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII,” director J.J. Abrams said in a statement. “It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.”

Ford and Fisher return to reprise their roles as do Hamill, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan will write the screenplay and longtime composer John Williams will score the film. The seventh edition in the Star Wars film franchise hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
