It's also curious she is the first official returning cast member to be announced. Perhaps they're saving Ian, Andy and Hugo for last?
They are arguably the biggest signers and, possibly, at least for agents and completing contracts, the biggest challenge. Certainly the biggest news. I would have included Cate Blanchett in that list, but here she is. I don't know what that says. The only actor who could trump that list is Christropher Lee if they can work that out. The casting announcement of Saruman may be last.
