When it comes to Disney/LucasFilm’s next installment in the main Star Wars saga, majority of rumors and speculations are towards the old cast returning to their iconic roles, as well as which actors will play characters new to the series. However, there’s a new type of rumor floating around: new actors being cast to play old characters.

According to Big Shiny Robot, veteran actress Judi Dench is being considered to play the role of rebel leader Mon Mothma. It’s been filed under “Possibly Not.” And is very low priority, but it kind of fits in with a recent tease from Latino Review, in which they teased that a “nominee currently on the awards circuit is up for a major role in STAR WARS EPISODE VII” via twitter.
