The Full Of Sith Podcast cite several reliable sources as relaying to them that Dame Judi Dench is being looked at to appear as classic trilogy character Mon Mothma in Star Wars Episode VII. The character only actually had one scene in Return Of The Jedi as she coordinated the rebel attack on the new Death Star and was played by Caroline Blakiston. The guys specify that it is just a rumor at this stage, but seem pretty confident that their sources are on the level, so we'll see if this pans out. If it does, what do you think of this casting..and is Mon Mothma a character you think should even be brought back at all? If you want to hear exactly how the rumor is relayed for yourselves, click the link below and skip to around the 57:00 point in the video.

M? Cool.

Cool. I love Judi Dench, but what's wrong with Caroline Blakiston?
Buu - 1/20/2014, 12:34 PM
This would be great casting!
marvel72 - 1/20/2014, 12:35 PM
very good actress,i hope this turns out being true.
ndwwrestler2 - 1/20/2014, 12:36 PM
I've recently been reading the Thrawn Trilogy books, Dench would be perfect for this role.

Could see this happening! Do see Mon Mothma appearing in the film, and that's definitely solid casting! Even though I know they're not following the EU (which is a good thing in a way), Mon Mothma appeared quite a bit in the majority of stories revolving around the New Republic and post-Episode 6, so it's not unlikely

Hopefully she will have the class to turn it down. Star Wars and Disney films are beneath her.
batz11 - 1/20/2014, 12:40 PM
Wonder if Mons Pubis will be in it?
TheSoulEater - 1/20/2014, 12:41 PM
Bitch I'm for this!
MsDarkPhoenix - 1/20/2014, 12:41 PM
@DukeAcureds She is 80 years old, while Dench is only 79! They can't have an 80 year old woman on the movie, but Dench at 79 is still very young.
SkullFace616 - 1/20/2014, 12:42 PM
Why not just get Caroline Blakiston? She's still alive and acting.

If there is any movie I'm sick of hearing casting rumors about, it's this one.
fettastic - 1/20/2014, 12:45 PM
I can see it but damn she's getting old.
gambgel - 1/20/2014, 12:46 PM
if True, Judi would be an awesome addition to Star Wars, or any other franchise, for that matter
ndwwrestler2 - 1/20/2014, 12:48 PM
@ManDeth Dude, if you don't like Star Wars, why the hell do you keep clicking on Star Wars articles?
beto - 1/20/2014, 12:48 PM
@DarkPhoenix, in addition, 78 might be way too young.

@JohnGalt Obviously you do, since you just spent about 3 minuted of your life reading this article and commenting

I feel like such a geek for knowing who the character was as soon as I read the article headline. But then again, who isn't around here.
AnitaDick - 1/20/2014, 12:58 PM
Mon Mothma? What the hell did she ever do and why would she be in this movie? This movie's doomed. smh

AJD16 - 1/20/2014, 12:58 PM
Thought she was retiring due to the whole going blind thing

We'd assume you did by your clicking on the article.
