Yesterday the cast of Star Wars Episode VII was announced, sending out a great disturbance in the Force felt throughout all fandom. Mashwork analyzed the social web to discover who among the new cast was the most buzzed about.
The scale of the conversation was impressive. Overall, there were 92,742 mentions of Star Wars Episode VII on April 29th, roughly 64 mentions for every minute of that day. We were also surprised at who was most discussed. We were expecting more conversation about newcomer Daisy Ridley, because this is film is by far the largest project in which she has been involved and not much is currently known about her. Instead, it was Oscar Isaac, star of Inside Llewyn Davis, who drove the most conversation.
Tune in tomorrow when we analyze who is the most anticipated returning cast member from the original saga.
