Latino Review has dropped the news that two people have auditioned Star Wars Episode VII. That’s an audition not cast. First off, they are reporting that Rachel Hurd-Wood (2003‘s Peter Pan) has gone in for an audition and read for the part of Leia and Han’s daughter. If J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt follow the expanded universe, she just read for Jaina Solo.

The other actor that Latino Review is reporting to have read for a part is Alex Pettyfer. Pettyfer can currently be seen in The Butler and he also co-starred in Magic Mike. Who Pettyfer read for at this time is unknown. 

They did report that Lucasfilm is going to make a major casting announcement soon. Rest assured Maniacs, Mania gets press releases directly from Lucasfilm and Disney. When we know, you will know, officially!


Star Wars Episode VII is slated to arrive in 2015.
