Hey Yo! Draven here.
We have some late night huge STAR WARS: EPISODE VII news. Schmoes Know has what they claim to be a storyline breakdown for the next STAR WARS film. A “reliable” source of theirs was able to get a hold of the casting breakdown for the film that was sent out by J.J. Abrams. Take this all with a grain of salt until this is confirmed but here we go:
Storyline: Two 17 year old twins, a girl and a boy, are trained by their uncle Luke to be the greatest Jedi’s in the galaxy. Problems arise when the male twin turns to the dark side.
Jaina Solo – Female, 17 years old, lead. – Jacen’s twin sister, one of the greatest Jedi’s in the galaxy, trained by her uncle Luke Skywalker
Jacen Solo – Male, 17 years old, lead – Jaina’s twin brother, one of the greatest Jedi’s in the world. A loner who is constantly struggling with the idea of what’s right and what’s wrong. Starts to turn to the dark side. Full of conviction that what he is doing is the “right thing”. Will eventually become Darth Caedus.
Okay lots to process here but there is definitely going to be some of the expanded universe involved if this is true. Jacen and Jaina Solo are both established characters already and this also sets up the return of Luke, Leia and Han Solo. If this is true we now have an idea of where these new STAR WARS films are going to go. The only big problem I see with this is that the timelines are a little off. Lucas has always said that the trilogies are supposed to be roughly 30 years apart. If that is true that means Leia and Han waited at least 10 years to have kids. It's possible but we will see. I know it is easy to be cynical about this but holy shit am I excited for a fresh new STAR WARS world. This could all be total bullshit but just this speculating is fun to read and talk about.
