    I won't go in detail as I don't have time right now, but... If the woman was falsely seduced herself, and she manipulates her seducer that way, too, then I would simply think that turnabout's fair play.

    Cheers,

    I would really like to see some strong female characters myself... even if they're not 'the protagonist' there's nothing wrong with someone capable of being a female role model. But I must say this...

    Mara Jade... please?

    Wow, I'm suddenly imagining her teaching dueling as a way to introduce her. lol.

    Totally! This is what I'm talking about. Diversity. A female bounty hunter as a lead role would excite me!

    Let Beckinsale keep her dark hair and let her play a female Sith!

    An Asian woman would be cool.. I know there was some random Asian Jedi woman that probably bit it on Geonosis.. but she doesnt count she didnt have any lines.

    I see this new trilogy as a massive opportunity to rectify the faults of the prequel trilogy. So i am very excited to be honest - Especially for my young kids to experience it also like i did when i was a young boy....

    I would love a strong Female Jedi, and a bad ass female antagonist Sith... Both with amazing powers to not only be bad ass with weapons, but to be able to go to the next level and use the force to move objects etc and maybe even do things with the force that we havent seen yet !

    Vestara Khai (as the Sith) and Allana (as the young Jedi) - from the Fate of the Jedi series, could work- Vestara came very close to joining the light side, and worked with the Jedi against a greater threat, before leaving. And Allana is Han & Leia's granddaughter.

    A man & man love story would be great to Disney will progress the universe. Fanboys beware.

    Sorry if i didn't explain myself too well, but i'm not against a women main character in this film. I just tried to explain why in Star Wars there haven't been until now women main characters. But i think there have been 6 Star War movies, so i think it is time to have a strong female character. Would that be the main character, or the main antagonist. A female main Sith would be really cool also.

    It can also fix all terrible flaws in the Mark Hamill OT movies as well. Some parts of the OT are so cringe worthy.

    Reviving this to say I'd love to see a female lead for the ST. We had male leads for the first six films, why not give it a go? It would make sense as there were certainly plenty of female Jedi, Sith, civilians, fighter pilots, bounty hunters, etc. out there. And it'd give Star Wars a chance at redemption from that ridiculous plotline about Padme dying because she, ahem, lost the will to live. >.> (Seven years later and I'm still cranky over that.)

    I don't want a "strong female character" as much as I want to see a deeply flawed female character who overcomes challenges and eventually becomes strong. Conflict makes good characters and good characters make good movies, no matter what their gender.

    Yup. Having a female lead would be a great change of pace. I really want the movie to focus on Jaina Solo (no brother).

    I can't wait to see a legitimate female lead with a very meaningful lightsaber duel, much like when Luke finally takes down Vader. Something very heavy, tense and moody with excellent music and actualy sword skill (not the whack a fly style hyper style from PT, in most cases).
