As reported by Twitch Film, though it is not known what roles the trio would be playing in the upcoming “Star Wars” film, we can surely expect some butt-kicking action to go down on-screen.

If this news of casting is confirmed, the actors will be joining actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Christina Chong and Miltos Yerolemou.
