A quick update on last week’s news about Star Wars Episode VII auditions: Disney is now accepting audition tapes online. The role descriptions are the exact same as the ones noted in the previous post (the information is re-shared below for your convenience). This should help out aspiring actors, Jedi, and Sith that may not live near one of the major cities where in-person auditions are being held. Interested parties should submit their videos to the Open Casting Call website Disney has set up. Good luck, all!
