Here's some things which we know: Star Wars has already established a tradition for strong secondary female characters such as Leia, Padme, and Ahsoka. The recently leaked cast listing confirms two young female characters; the placement of one of these characters as the first item on the list suggests she may be the central character. The mythic-literary continuum had been largely male-dominated for millennia, yet we are in the middle of a slow-but-sure reformation in the way women are portrayed in fiction. Star Wars is a consistently progressive and innovative franchise; George Lucas is enamored by the progression of female portrayals, and in an early draft of the original film, the character role of Luke Skywalker was female. In previous central figures of Luke and Anakin, we have already seen two flavors of male experiences played out. One logical conclusion resulting from the ending of Return of the Jedi is that Leia and Han may have children, including the possibility of a daughter. Every other discussion about this topic has been misguided or somehow wound up closed, and yet it's an important topic to re-engage in earnest. And this part's just my speculation: The daughter of Skywalker and Solo, rebellious and wisecracking, a talented pilot and mechanic, uncle's lightsaber in one hand, father's blaster in the other, heiress to Chewbacca's life-debt, who will at some point appear in a skimpy outfit while performing heroic actions. Now it's your turn. *No EU was considered in the creation of this thread.
