The Raid 2: Berandal

“The Raid” Series Leads to Appear in “Star Wars Episode 7”

Have you seen the two Raid Movies? If you’re a fan of choreography-heavy, visceral, inventive action, and you haven’t, fix that!

Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman have collectively appeared in The Raid and The Raid 2, but they are all about to get just about the biggest spotlight you could get in Hollywood; they are going to be in Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens.

What will this mean for the movie? Well, we can expect to see some pretty incredible fight scenes in Episode 7, the sort of masterful, ferocious, personal duels that a contemporary movie with laser-sword wielding, super powered space ninjas deserve.

At least, that’s what many fans are hoping for. There is no word yet what sort of roles the three martial arts actors will play in Episode 7. Could be Jedi, Sith, Aliens, whatever. The Wrap is saying that at least one of the actors will have their character perish onscreen.

Just how excited are you to see Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman in Star Wars: Episode 7? Let us know in the comments.
