    I think I asked before, but if the gap of 40 years is correct and IF Luke does have kids, and IF his wife is moreorless the same age, that makes an age range of 39 to 20 (a bit younger if Hamill and co. are playing slightly less than their age) for the Solo/Skywalker kids.

    That leaves plenty of room for grandchildren too.

    That makes potential for an interesting and large family unit.

    How many kids kids do you guys think Lucas will give Luke and Leia?

    I'm going to assume that Lando offspring will be half the population anyway.

    I would cast Lara Pulver in all sorts of things. I saw her in a production of one of my favorite (dark) musicals in LA, Parade, a few years ago as well. She has good range as her role in that, while of a strong woman, was not at all dark or seductive. I just think she's a good actress all around.

    I'm on the fence on Luke having a kid or kids.
    I don't know why but always saw Luke going into life as a hermit or something, basically becoming the new Yoda.
    Leia becoming a jedi and her offspring as well.
    There's also room for other 2nd generation or third characters.
    The Mothma


    The Landos


    The Mon Calamari


    The Nadines


    So while the protagonists would be from the Skywalker family that is not to say we might get other younglings.

    I don't understand the obsession that people have with Summer Glau. I never watched FireFly, but I did watch the feature film Serentity where I have a vague memory of her playing this expression-less killing machine -- pretty much the same role she played on Sarah Connor Chronicles. I did watch that show and tried to like her there, but couldn't. I would prefer an actress than can act and one that has more then one facial expression.

    Haha, thanks, but I guess she doesn't do it for me, like Prince Valium didn't do it for Princess Vespa.

    After thinking about it. I now believe Keira Knightley should be Jaina Solo. Here's my reasoning: She played a handmaiden to Padme in Episode I. These were girls who looked like Natalie Portman. it was also reported that their mothers couldn't tell the difference between them. Maybe Jaina looks a lot like her grandmother

    Why not Katee Sackhoff? She's not doing anything of note at the moment. She would fit in with that universe perfectly.

    Just to show she can do another look other than BSG, and we know she has a good acting range.

    I am sorry to burst your bubble folks, but all i see here is a thread that caters to ma$turb@tion fantasies by sci-fi fans. Most of them are beautiful ladies but they are sex objects or considered as such. They would end up only being placeholders for a female character, like trying to introduce soft porn into a star wars movie.

    Also most of the choices here have women that have been in franchises that are either loved or hated and you don't want to polarize your fans with the first movie at the very least. I am pretty sure that the casting crew will probably go with unknown of very little known actresses with the female parts to avoid that deja vu feeling different sci-fi setting or action movie thing in the movie.

    A few females from all these pages would work but the rest are just teenage crushes and that would spell disaster for the movie... Star Wars cannot be built around hunks and sexy chicks that are mainstream today. It would worse that trying to stick Jar Jar back in the sequels. The movie would lose credibility, get crushed by mature critics, suffer money wise and end up being canned as a non viable franchise...

    Attractive people are marketable, so they will feature. But they should also be able to act.

    Scarlett Johansson is a smokin' hot lady, but I wouldn't want her to be in SW because she's not really a very good actress. Plus she's now been in big Marvel movies which ties her to a major franchise.

    All this talk of Summer Glau is OK, but she's pretty typecast already and certainly everything I've seen her in she doesn't seem to have an awful lot of range.

    Now that you have rained on the parade of these all these actresses, care to offer your suggestion who you would cast ?
    Negative nellies need to offer suggestions too :)

    Keira Knightley only seems to accept roles in oscar-worthy costume dramas. I doubt she would go back to SW.

    I don't have nay names to offer. Like i said. For these kind of roles, Lucasfilm will probably want unknowns that no one can associate with anything. I am not saying that Summer ( for example ) is not a good actress. But imagine people going to a Star Wars movie and seeing her in there. " Cool" a terminator in a Star Wars movie. It might be "cool" to a newer generation that has been bombarded with tons of other stuff but the movie would lose all credibility to the generation that was there for the original OT. The sequels will be made to appeal to the original OT lovers while trying to bring in new fans for the after sequel stuff. So they have to thread carefully.

    Really? Casting Summer Glau would make the film "lose credibility to the generation that was there for the original OT"? That's frankly stupid.

    I think that first Anna Paquin picture is from Trick r' Treat. Great flick.

    @budspencer
    Ok but they at least need an IMBd profile to show they have some acting history, there is unknown and then there is unproven.
    You could go with the original OT formula of 2 known and 2 unknown, and one semi-known, not including the OT cast that seemed to work.

    You should watch Firefly. It's pretty great for such a short lived series.

    What?

    Unless I'm very much mistaken there is 0 chance that the casting director is looking at this thread. So unless you are really thick the opinions posted here have no bearing on the decision, but it's fun to propose your candidates.

    I can't seem to be able to post pics from my tablet but how about Daniela Amavia for an older Skywalker or a villain. Or maybe Ellen Page?

    Ellen has my vote!

    I'm also partial to Emily Browning. She was good in sucker punch
