Casting news for Star Wars episode VII
Casting continues for Star Wars episode VII, right now five actors are in consideration for a major Jedi role. Ed Speleers, Matthew James Thomas, Jesse Plemons, John Boyega, Ray Fisher.
No word yet on who this major Jedi character is, we do not know if he will be one of the Skywalker/Solo kids. I am going to go on a limb and say it’s probably not a Solo, just because of the diverse nature of the cast. Let’s be far we know what both Solo parents look like. Unless they were lucky enough to adopt a force sensitive baby, I’m thinking he is not going to be a Solo kid. He could be Ben Skywalker who is Luke Skywalker’s son, while in the extended universe Mara is Caucasian, they could change that for the movie.
We will keep our ear out for more information about the casting and characters. I will say this they are doing their best to keep a tight lid on who the actual characters are. While they said they were going to take some of the characters from the extended universe, they could be creating some new ones as well. I guess we are just going to wait and see.
