Han and Leia are a bit old to have "teens" at this point.

 Screw the teens, btw.

 sounds like they are looking for normal looking people instead of the Hollywood perfect type you see everyday. Sounds cool..

Why would they cast for a 70 something Han when Harrison is all ready to go for the part.  The casting is usually for the ones they haven't chosen yet.

Inner's right, if they go for Han and Leia's kids, they're going to have to be in their 30's already at least.

Ah! This confirms Matthew Vaughn had seen the story/script when he was considered for the directing gig. He let it slip in an interview he wanted Chloe Grace Moretz as his lead.

This doesn't look like the Solo twins casting which means they are ditching the expanded universe stuff completely as they said they would.

Unless it's the 3rd Skywalker generation? I haven't read SW books in a long time so I don't know if the Solo kids had offsprings in later books. Like someone said, if Han is 70, wouldn't a 20 something kid be to young?

Then again, Han was "35 years old" in RotJ and Leia was 23 I believe. What if she waited to start a family in her mid 30s and Han in his mid to late 40s? The late 20 something male would fit the bill as the first Solo child.

mmmm......

Sounds like there's no part for Peter Mayhew.

I would expect it to be a very action-oriented movie so it doesn't surprise me that "fit" is included in most of the descriptions.

 The twins? I reallllllllllllllllly hope that they tie in the EU stuff.

Also keep in mind that this is a trilogy so we could be looking at filiming in 2014, 2017 and 2020 (if they keep with the three year release pattern of the original trilogy). People being cast now will be about seven years older by the time they start filming the last one.

Of course, if they film as quickly as LOTR then that might not be as big an issue.

Yea Han and L are way to old for this to be about their twins.  Unless there twins are in their 40s at least.
