Wrapped up in JadeCon preparations, I considered putting this off for about two seconds, before I realized just how much actually happened last week: Mark Hamill made his Star Wars weekends debut, two new actresses cast, leaked photos, you name it. In any case: Onward!
The latest cast members make their debut (to us, anyway.)
I can finally say it out loud and proud: I'm going to a galaxy far far away! http://t.co/b39DjEEAzB

Below the cut, John Boyega is no doubt happy to have two less secrets to keep, someone is now verified, and Bad Robot goes to the Eye. (Oh, and don’t forget J.J. Abrams’ master trolling.)
Nichelle Nichols crosses over, a new look at the twin sunsets, telling the Disney Store what’s up… We may not have got ny big news last week, but we did tweet.
John Boyega particularly has been very sharey this week… Nothing particularly sensitive, but it is fun to get these quick glimpses. More Instagrams and tweets beneath the cut – including, finally, confirmation that that is Daisy Ridley’s Twitter. (If the photo wasn’t enough…)
Last week, Episode VII filming began, the first Star Wars Weekend happened down in Orlando, and someone finally found (some) compelling evidence of who Adam Driver playing. Well, sort of. Here’s some money, go see a Star War.
