Despite the recent fuss about the return of Gwendoline Christie to the Star Wars saga in Episode VIII, the fact of the matter is, we’ve known that for nearly two months. Kathleen Kennedy announced it in a December 4th, 2015 piece in the Los Angeles Times.

Max von Sydow
Those last two should give you pause, considering their apparent deaths in The Force Awakens. Maybe, because it was the 17th and barely anyone had seen the film by then, they didn’t want to spoil the surprise, and they won’t actually be in the movie.
