Now that The Force Awakens is now out in theaters, we’re learning even more about the little details of the film, including a couple of surprise cameos. Spoilers ahead.


According to Entertainment Weekly, there’s some surprising voice cameos that appeared: Frank Oz, Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor all appeared:

As Rey touches [Luke’s Lightsaber], she is hit with an impressionistic wave of images and sounds that depict a cloaked Luke Skywalker in mourning, reaching out for support (or to comfort) R2-D2 beside a fire. She sees bodies scattered in a rainstorm at the feet of Kylo Ren and the masked and menacing Knights of Ren. She sees herself as a young girl, being left in the coarse hands of junk dealer Unkar Plutt on the desert world of Jakku.


During that scenes, you can hear a rush of voices, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.

According to Abrams:

“You do hear a little bit of Yoda. You hear Luke yelling out, ‘Nooo!’ from that moment in Empire. And you hear Obi-Wan at the end say, ‘Rey … these are your first steps,’” Abrams says. “Here’s the cool part. We asked Ewan McGregor to come in and do the line. And he was awesome and we were very grateful. He was incredibly sweet and handsome, and all that stuff. Then he rode off on his motorcycle. Literally the coolest voice over actor ever.”

So cameos, who all did people spot?

My small list, that I can remember off the top of my head:

—Thomas Sangster-Brodie (aka kid from Love Actually, Jojen Reed): One of the First Order control room guys

—Daniel Craig: confirmed as the strom trooper in the scene with Rey

—Greg Grunberg (aka JJ Abram’s best friend and lucky charm): One of the Resistance folks

—Billie Lourd (aka Carrie Fisher’s daughter): One of the other Resistance folks, with hair buns

—Juliet Stevenson: the Resistance doctor who seems to have a soft spot for Chewie (go Chewie!)

Any others?
