    To me this is a must, either Luke's girl or preferably Leia's girl.

    Should be younger, and give people the eye candy Leia did in ROTJ.
    Please post pictures.

    These are just idea's

    I don't know what made me think of it yesterday that we've yet to see a woman participate in a duel on screen, and how none were taught that kind of choreography.



    I'm not sure who I would like to see in the hypothetical role.

    Luke is a Jedi. He won't have a child and follow in his stupid father's mistake.

    Then he could train his niece from birth....and this is where we get a new female Skywalker Jedi... the question who is the best actress to play her.

    Other choices are:
    Eliza Dushku
    Kate Beckinsale
    Jessica Biel
    Jennifer Garner

    New Girl should be born around 1994, just because it seems to follow the pattern of the Male/Female lead. I don't know who I would cast yet as female, but I do like the idea of a young female jedi, I feel this series should be more about the rebirth of the jedi order either way.

    Character-wise, Allana (Leia's granddaughter) could work, if it's set some 50 years on from A New Hope.

    Well if Leia had her girl right after ROTJ she would be about 30, so it is possible a grandchild could be used too, but she also could have the child later in life so they have range of ages to choose from, I would say no older than 35 for looks however. I would prefer younger like Dakota Fanning, better to engage the next generation of Star Wars fans.

    Chloe Moretz is too young, and I don't see Dakota working on this. I'd look more for someone who looks like they can actually perform with a commanding presence.

    I would love Summer Glau. There is no contest.
    Course that's a pipe dream.

    If you're shooting for a 21/22-year-old protagonist around release, it's an interesting challenge. Even stunt double aside, she has to have the necessary physicality to pull off the role, because let's face it, people are going to expect her to hold her own in lightsaber sequences with men, and Star Wars fans are going to demand that it looks credible ... and because the bar has been raised by the PT, we're not talking about what passed for them back in the OT anymore.

    See Zhang Ziyi in Crouching Tiger (she was 21 when the movie was released) as sort of the gold standard for a "girl" in sword fights with adults. No disrespect to many of the young actresses out there, but I'm thinking it's not that easy to pull that off. If you cast one of these actresses hoping she "develops" and instead she remains a girly (for lack of a better word encompassing talents suited to female roles) actress, you have problems.

    If you go a little bit older you have the luxury of probably having some work somewhere as a better gauge for how the physical demands of the role (even if it's mostly for appearances sake) fit her.

    I second Chloe Moretz.

    She can more than hold her own against intimidating numbers and the physicality needed.

    Plus there's that whole she's ADORABLE factor especially in the elusive "I want my daughter to turn out like THAT way and never have to worry about her choices."

    Summer is awesome.

    BTW -- could someone tell me where that pic came from? I she pandering for a part in Star Wars? She just looks so natuyral with a lightsaber.

    I should mention that should Summer somehow find her way into Ep 7 it would be a straong contender for my favorite SW movie supplanting Empire.

    Technically I think Serenity kissed her first. On the other hand, we can add "being tall enough to hold spaceships" to her CV.
