'Star Wars: Episode VII' Cast Gets LEGO Treatment in Cool Diorama
When almost the entire cast of Star Wars: Episode VII was announced this past spring, a photo from the table read accompanied the announcement, showing director J.J. Abrams sitting with returning cast members Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew, not to mention the new stars including John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and Adam Driver. Now the photo has been given a fun makeover with LEGO pieces, and there have been some modifications, such as some of the returning cast members being represented by the LEGO version of their Star Wars character and Andy Serkis holding a tiny Ring of Power. Look below!

Star Wars: Episode VII is directed by J.J. Abrams from a script he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. The film doesn't have an official title yet, but it takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, following a new trio of heroes, along with the return of Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Luke Sywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher). Rumors are swirling about the story, but the plot and nearly everything else is being kept under tight wraps. The film is expected to hit theaters on December 18th, 2015, but there are rumors that Harrison Ford's recent injury could push the film back to 2016. Stay tuned.
