If you have ever dreamt of being in Star Wars this is your chance as Disney are holding open auditions for Episode 9.
As kids we all wanted to be Jedis, and admittedly still do as adults, so this is an opportunity that cannot be missed.
According to Movie Casting Call, casting directors are setting up auditions for both lead and supporting roles as well as extras, stand-ins and photo doubles.
Get yourself excited for this December’s release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi:

Set to be directed by J.J. Abrams (The Force Awakens, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness) following the departure of Colin Trevorrow, cameras are due to start rolling next year so clear your schedules.
If you audition you must have legal eligibility to work in the entertainment industry in the UK as filming will take place at Pinewood Studios in London and surrounding areas.
Details of when and where the auditions are happening is expected to be announced in the next few weeks.
Of course there is a note at the bottom of the casting call that states the lead and supporting roles are chiefly being cast ‘through talent agents in Los Angeles, New York, and London’ but you can still take a shot at it.
Why not? You could end up in a galaxy far, far away…
