Star Wars 7

Looks like Disney is getting Hollywood biggies who are part of the studio's current lineup of films, to film cameos in the upcoming Star Wars film.

Robert Downey Jr is part of Disney's eagerly-awaited Marvel film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Hugh Jackman is playing Blackbeard in the studio's upcoming film, Pan. Both stars along with Samuel L Jackson, who has previously starred in the Star Wars prequel trilogy as Jedi master Mace Windu, are set for Star Wars: Episode VII cameos, reports Mirror.

"The superstar trio are rumoured to have landed secret roles in the latest installment of the George Lucas-penned franchise after being invited to the set at the Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, along with Paul actor Nick Frost," states the report.

"Everyone is clamouring for a set visit and cameo. Sam, Robert and Hugh have all been invited, as well as Frost. Some are hiding their faces just for fun but others have to for contractual reasons," a source told The Sun newspaper.

"If they're tied to other studios, they're technically not allowed to appear in a Disney film."

Although the rumour seems a bit far-fetched, it will be quite awesome to see the three beloved stars in the legendary sci-fi adventure.

Recently, reports suggesting that James Bond actor Daniel Craig has secured a mystery role in the science fiction saga, circulated online. Reportedly, Craig begged director JJ Abrams for a small part owing to his tremendous love for the series.

Meanwhile, earlier rumours about popular Star Wars characters getting their own spinoff films seem to have again gained momentum.

Fan site Making Star Wars said: "For the spin-off movies, they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters. But I'm hearing now that because of the popularity of Obi-Wan, an art team is now working with a writer on concepts for an Obi-Wan movie."

Star Wars: Episode VII is slated to be released on 18 December, 2015.
