Cast Of ‘Star Wars : VIII’ Could Include Gugu Mbatha-Raw | Film News

"Belle" Portraits - 2013 Toronto International Film Festival


Whilst we’re all extremely excited about the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this new bit of information from Collider may give hints to who may be cast in the instalment following this one. Collider has revealed that Gugu Mbatha Raw (Belle, Jupiter Ascending, Beyond the Lights) will be joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode VIII, set to open May 26 2017.


The casting for this film has been hard to keep track of, what with Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel) and Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) all speculated to be potentially involved, so it could be quite difficult to place a confident amount of certainty in this news of Gugu Mbatha Raw having a role – however, with the line of successes the Belle actress has scored so far, an official announcement of her involvement in the new Star Wars wouldn’t come as a surprise.
