Rumor mill: Episode VII features Luke, female Skywalker

Get used to these rumor reports, folks! It’s only just begun. Today, we have Marketsaw. Their source has a lot to say about a lot of things, including the new movies, the old movies and live-action TV show, but here’s the bit about the sequel trilogy:

There are two trilogies planned, all following an original overview by Lucas, which was always planned as a multi generational saga. Movies 10 – 12 are from my understanding about the offspring of the Skywalkers, set many years later with the surviving cast playing much older versions of themselves and featuring a female protagonist named Skywalker. This is something that I understand is being discussed as the latest trilogy may end up being an amalgamation of the two using themes and ideas from both, but still keeping the general story, also allowing for continuity of cast.

As always, I recommend taking any unverified reports of this nature with a grain of salt! But I can say – have said – that I would love it if the new movies featured a female Skywalker front and center. Still, being a realist and having been an avid spectator through the worst of the prequel rumormongering, I can’t give these reports that much credence.

  1. I think I would prefer a female Solo lead… but that is just my inner EU talking

  2. I can’t be the only one here who read the NJO series… or Legacy of the Force… right? Right?!

  3. Beth: Thanks! I’m not going to pin them to various tracks in the future – I just happened to have made/uploaded the Luke one used on today’s other rumor. I have three or four waiting, but I do have the template just in case. ;)

  4. Andrew, read them, kind of hoping they’ll be chucked now.

    OOOOOO!!!! Any chance of getting Chewie back?? He’s one of the few characters to make an appearance in both trilogy’s. Wonder if he’ll be ressurected for the third.

    Sorry for all the exclamation points, but this is the first time I’ve really been excited about the news.
