As rumors and speculation about the details of the upcoming Star Wars film continue, one recent tidbit floats to the top. It comes in the form of a tweet from Peter Sciretta of /Film, where he poses a simple question.
“Who said the lead character in Star Wars Episode VII is going to be a male star? ”
Now either he knows something, or he doesn’t.
However this does bring to mind one of the first things I wondered when I heard about a new movie set to take place after Return of the Jedi, what story could they be telling. The expanded universe has the years after Jedi covered fairly well between the comics and novels, which begs the questions.
Will we hear of the Solo kids?
Or will we be meeting Luke’s daughter?
