Domhnall Gleeson has revealed he only watched the original Star Wars trilogy after signing on to star in the seventh film. The Frank star has been tight-lipped about his upcoming appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, alongside the franchise’s original cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. But he told the Daily Mail that he only saw the famous, original Star Wars films from start to finish after being cast in the hotly-anticipated new movie.

“‘I did like Star Wars when I was a kid. I saw the prequels first, I didn’t see the full original films first all the way through,” he said.

“So I went back and watched them all on a big screen after I got cast, and that made me incredibly excited about it. I loved every second.”

Domhnall, who next stars in Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, said he had to quell his fanboy side when he went on the Star Wars set.

“I am (a fan) but the only way for me to do my job is to treat it like a job and just try and kill it,” he told Metro. “I mean, it’s amazing how much they built the sets, it gives you a sense of the grandeur of those movies.

“When you see the actual sets built for Star Wars, that’s pretty cool,” he added.

John Boyega, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis and Daisy Ridley will also star in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is directed by JJ Abrams. The film opens in cinemas in December.

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens sparked worldwide excitement, and provided fans with a glimpse of new characters including Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley), as well as a new rollerball droid, a revamped Millennium Falcon and mysterious villain Kylo Ren. But there was no sign of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia – three main characters from the original Star Wars trilogy, all of whom have key roles in JJ Abrams’s film.

Anxious fans can now breathe a sign of relief. 32 years after they last appeared together in a Star Wars film, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will all feature in the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, according to a report from Latino Review.

Hamill, who was 25 years old when the first Star Wars film was released in the summer of 1977, is now 63. Ford (who was 34) is 72, and Fisher (who was 20) is 58.

If Ford’s Han Solo appears in the trailer, it also seems likely that we might get a glimpse of another character from the old films: British actor Peter Mayhew is reprising his role as Solo’s Wookiee buddy Chewbacca for Abrams’s movie. Fans are also speculating that droids R2-D2 and C-3PO might also show up.

The new trailer will be shown with Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, released on May 1.

Bookmaker William Hill has predicted that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the highest grossing movie of 2015, outmuscling the forthcoming instalments of both the Avengers and James Bond franchises.

In its rundown of the biggest films of the year the bookmaker makes the forthcoming Disney film, directed by JJ Abrams, a huge odds-on favourite to be the most successful of the year. The other contenders are Avengers: Age of Ultron which will be the 4/1 outsider ahead of Jurassic World at 8/1 with Spectre, the new 007 film coming in fourth with odds of 9/1.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Crunchsports.com: “After a slow year for blockbusters in 2014, it looks as though 2015 could be the best ever year for movies.”

Last year, Credit Suisse’s Michael Senn predicted that the film would take $1.2bn at the box office, StarWars7News.com reports. This week, Cowan & Co. projected the exact same figure. But FBR Capital Markets goes further and says the film would likely take in $700m domestically and another $1bn overseas.

Some analysts say that the hotly anticipated film may even outperform those expectations, and could go on to be the highest grossing film of all time. To do so it would have to top James Cameron’s Avatar, which made $2.8bn when it was released in 2009.

“I can’t speak for the cast and crew, I can just speak for myself, but for me I thought, ‘Don’t you want to wait so you can get the real thing?’ And also, the [plot theories] that get that formulated based on these things — they couldn’t be more far off-base.” That’s Oscar Isaac, one of the new cast members in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and member of the Fun Police there.

While Isaac may be down on fans speculating on the nature of the heavily under-wraps plot for the latest return to a galaxy far, far away – and like, check your script privilege mate, you already know what happens, all the rest of us have are rumours and hearsay – the internet has been a hive of such theories since the existence of a new Star Wars was announced.

Even following that long-awaited first teaser trailer, details are very thin on what The Force Awakens will actually be about, let alone who Isaac – or any of the new cast members – will be playing. And how do all the old guard factor in, too?

Thankfully, geeks are more than willing to fill in any such gaps. Culled from across the web, with speculation on everything from severed hands to marital statuses, here are ten shocking (but believable) theories about Star Wars 7…

10. It Centres On The Yuuzhan Vong Invasion
9. Leia Is A Jedi
8. Han Solo Is The Rebel Leader
7. Mandalorians And The Witches of Dathomir
6. Lupita Nyong’o Is Asajj Ventress
5. Luke Has Joined The Dark Side
4. Darth Vader Will Appear Somehow (As Played By A WWE Star)
3. The Bad Guys Are Jedi Hunters
2. The New Characters Are The Old Characters’ Kids
1. It All Focuses On Luke’s Lost Hand

For as long as I can remember Princess Leia was my hero. Smart, brave, and sassy Leia didn’t let her petiteness or her gender define her or hold her back in the original Star Wars trilogy.

Certainly if you were looking for a female role model in Episodes 4, 5, or 6 you didn’t have many choices. Mon Montha and Oola are not exactly awe-inspiring characters to get very excited about. Princess Leia was the only real game in town for young girls looking for a woman to look up to. And luckily for us, Leia was more diplomat than princess and more rebel than wallflower.

However, we never truly got to see the Leia I was hoping for at the end of Return of the Jedi. Sure Leia held her own in Episode 6 – she took out Jabba the Hutt, made allies out of Ewoks, and helped save the day on Endor. But Leia had so much more to offer that we never got to see. Yoda talked about it to Obi-Wan “Hey if Luke goes down we’ve got Leia to save us” (not a direct quote, sorry Yoda). Darth Vader talked about it in his threat to Luke about turning Leia to the dark side. There was a lot of talk about how even more amazing Leia could be but we never got to see it.

I’m hoping like crazy that Leia is a Jedi Knight in Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. How can she not be? But I’m hoping even more that Daisy Ridley’s character fulfills the promise of a female Star Wars character. I think Natalie Portman did everything she could with the Padme Amidala character in the prequels, but it just wasn’t satisfying enough for me.

It seems fair now to say that Ridley’s character is the “Rachel” role in the casting call that went out almost a year ago (I’m assuming this is not going to end up being the character’s real name). She is a street smart orphan (is there really any other kind?) who appears to have the ‘don’t mess with me’ attitude of Leia and perhaps the Force is with her?

We have added x54 screencaps of Daisy Ridley in the “100% BEEF” short which was an entry to Four4 film competition 2013 by Mike Batecko. Four4 is a short film competition from River Film challenging film makers to produce a film consisting of just 4 shots, which are each 4 seconds long. This year’s theme is “horror”. You can watch the video, here.

Either J.J. Abrams has just raised his mystery box tactics to a whole new level, or people are terrible. You decide.

For the past five months, Abrams has been all over the world filming Star Wars Episode VII with a near-unprecedented level of curiosity surrounding the production. Paparazzi have been clamoring for set photos. Images of the actors simply walking on the streets are news. Recently, drones captured set images Abrams was surely not happy to see. That’s not even counting the online leaks about plot points, characters and more.

The whole time, the two safest and most exciting sources of Star Wars news were Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. The young actors, likely the two leads of the film, had been carefully documenting the process on social media. Both loved to tweet their thoughts about the process, posting funny videos and photos on Instagram, all the while never revealing anything.

Considering how much of a behemoth the “Star Wars” universe is, it is not a shock to see an insane number of plot theories, both crazy and likely, sprout here and there, especially since the production of “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” is blanketed with pure mystery. With tons of conjectures flying around, actor Oscar Isaac helped everyone to narrow them down at the least.

The actor, who plays the role of Poe Dameron, slammed speculations in a talk with Yahoo Movies.

“I can’t speak for the cast and crew, I can just speak for myself, but for me I thought, ‘Don’t you want to wait so you can get the real thing?'” he said. “But it creates excitement for it. I don’t think these little leaks necessarily ruined watching the trailer. And also, the [plot theories] that get that formulated based on these things — they couldn’t be more far off-base.”

How wild are those theories that led Isaac to call them “off-base”? Business Insider cites one where main characters look for Luke Skywalker after they chance upon his lost lightsaber. IDigital Times has one that claims John Boyega as the new “Force-sensitive” Luke Skywalker. Business Insider adds that his character will be an evil storm trooper turned good guy. The character of Adam Driver will be his main foe (well, basically in the whole story). Daisy Ridley’s Ray will be “his Leia.” Badass Digest has another speculation, where the plot is said to bear a resemblance to “A New Hope.”

None of these seemed to have hit the mark. It looks like “Star Wars” fanatics will have to wait for the premiere of “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” for all their questions to be answered. That would mean waiting until Dec. 18, 2015.
