This is pretty cool!

Over the weekend, Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally opened and — of course — shattered box office records.

The sci-fi adventure brought back popular original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill while introducing new characters played by Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac!

But because the film was directed by J.J. Abrams, there was a lot of secrecy around the project — which meant a lot of surprises and cameos!

Sure, we already knew about Simon Pegg's character and Daniel Craig's recently confirmed role as a stormtrooper, but we had no idea Ewan McGregor was going to be a part of the film!

The sequel, which will be directed by Danny Boyle, will feature the original cast including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle!

The much-anticipated flick is written by screenwriter John Hodge, who based it off Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh‘s follow-up novel Porno.

Production will begin around Spring 2016, and it will hopefully be released in 2017.

According to Boyle:

"It's been 20 years since we met these characters and John Hodge's screenplay brilliantly explores what's happened to them — and to us — in the intervening years."

We will definitely be hitting the theatres for this movie!

Whaaa??

Disney is pulling out all the stops for their live-action Beauty & The Beast! And by stops we mean ​stars, the newest of which is…

Ewan McGregor! The Moulin Rouge star will be singing once again as candlestick/maître d' Lumiere!

[ Related: Find Out What Happened At The First Beauty & The Beast Read-Through ]

And because we now know the movie will contain the classic songs from the cartoon, Ewan will be singing the centerpiece Be Our Guest!

Hmm, he's not French, he's not known for his singing voice, and we don't get to look at his pretty face. Far be it from us to second-guess Disney, but hmm…. LOLz!

We also have the news that Stanley Tucci, who you may remember as the bombastic Caesar in The Hunger Games, has joined the cast as a whole new character — a neurotic piano named Cadenza!

Guess we'll find out how it all works on March 17, 2017!

What do YOU think about this casting??
