'Star Wars: Episode VII' Cast

Did we just feel a disturbance in the Force?

The official title for the seventh installment in the “Star Wars” franchise has been revealed!

“‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has completed principal photography,” Disney/Lucasfilm announced on Thursday.

The title begs many questions: Did Luke Skywalker (who appears in the upcoming movie) have trouble with his Jedi powers since we last saw him in “Return of the Jedi”? Have there been Jedi this whole time just waiting to reveal themselves? Is there a character that fans are familiar with who taps into the Force finally?

The upcoming movie stars original series actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO),

New actors joining the “Star Wars” universe include Lupita Nyong’o, John Boyega, “Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie, “Girls” star Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, newcomer Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
