Since the announcement of the movie, we’ve known that the likes of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia would be back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there have been plenty of rumours about other possible returning roles (but not Lando it would seem). Well, starwars7news.com believes it can confirm two returning characters, along with information on a new one.
If you’re a fan of Return of the Jedi, you are in luck. According to the website, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will see the return of Nein Nunb and Admiral Ackbar. Check out the photos below that the site claims are 100% legit:
Obviously we don’t know if this is true or just a wild Bantha chase, but the website is very sure these are genuine. And to back that up, they have the first image of Greg Grunberg in the movie, which you can check out below:
Grunberg himself said that his character had facial hair and that he wore no prosthetics, so could this be a genuine photo from the production?
