A photograph put up by StarWars.com has got the internet exploding with excitement. It shows the main cast members for the next Star Wars film joining director J.J.

Abrams says, “We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.”

Now we know it has been a while since we posted anything about Peter Hearn’s independent horror film Scrawl, a project which has involved Andover College Media, Drama, Music and Media Make-up students working alongside professional actors and technicians on a feature film. Aside from Fisher, the only other female in the cast so far of Star Wars: Episode VII is also the lead actress of Scrawl, playing the role of Hannah. Ridley only started acting last year, beginning with guest roles on British TV shows like Youngers and Mr Selfridge and a rather larger one in Casualty, and is set to appear in the sequel to The Inbetweeners, a film which was based on the popular Channel 4 sitcom. Some are speculating she will be playing the daughter of Han Solo and Leia.
Scawl has been described by writer/director Peter Hearn as ‘Big’ meets ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.'”. It concerns two teenagers who write a comic book to escape their reality, gain some notoriety and pick up girls. When situations in the book start to come to life, it’s great to start with, but soon this all presents a problem – there’s a huge massacre looming on page 18….
The film has almost completed post-production and will be shown at Andover Arts Festival in June before hopefully being taken to film festivals around the world. This website will be bringing you official artwork, synopsis and more details very soon…
