Looks like ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ isn’t quite done with casting just yet. Disney has just announced that two new faces will join the cast of J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming film following a major casting call, and that production will take a brief hiatus in August due to Harrison Ford‘s injury, giving the newbies plenty of time to get acquainted with their fellow cast members.

In an announcement made on the official ‘Star Wars’ site, Disney revealed that two new members will join the star-studded cast of ‘Episode 7′: an American Actress named Crystal Clarke, who is currently studying in the UK and will appear in the upcoming film ‘The Moon and the Sun’ with Pierce Brosnan, and British actor Pip Andersen, who appeared in a 2012 ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ ad for Sony, which you can watch below.

They aren’t the only relatively unknown actors aboard the cast — star Daisy Ridley is also a fresh face with few credits to her name.

The roles of the newcomers have not yet been revealed, but Disney also announced that the production would take a brief two-week hiatus in August “while adjustments to the current production schedule are made” following Harrison Ford’s leg injury. Han Solo is currently on the mend and reps say he’s “doing well.”

‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ also stars Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, and Max Von Sydow, and is scheduled to hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
