Star Wars Casting News

Could be all BS - Possible SPOILERS

By Robert T. Trate     June 11, 2013

A site called Schmoeville is claiming to have nailed down some casting news fro Star Wars Episode VII. They claim this was sent from a reliable source and that this came from the desk of Star Wars Episode VII’s director J.J. Abrams. 
In case it is true, SPOILERS beware. Then again the site is called Schmoeville, so the joke is probably on us. 

“Star Wars: Episode VII

Storyline: Two 17 year old twins, a girl and a boy, are trained by their uncle Luke to be the greatest Jedis in the galaxy. Problems arise when the male twin turns to the dark side.

Jaina Solo – Female, 17 years old, lead. – Jacen’s twin sister, one of the greatest Jedis in the galaxy, trained by her uncle Luke Skywalker
Jacen Solo – Male, 17 years old, lead – Jaina’s twin brother, one of the greatest Jedis in the world. A loner who is constantly struggling with the idea of what’s right and what’s wrong. Starts to turn to the dark side. Full of conviction that what he is doing is the “right thing”. Will eventually become Darth Caedus”.

Fans of the expanded universe know that the Solo twins do have a younger bother named Anakin. There is no mention of him here. Again, this could all just be speculation and wishful thinking, but then again it could be the truth. 

This isn’t the first story we heard about a Star Wars sequel that got quickly debunked. Remember Zach Snyder director the Seven Samurai but with Jedi?

This one is fun and probably close to what we will see int he next film. It would work well with the “Mortis Trilogy” story that was laid out in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Take it with a grain of salt Maniacs.

 This sounds very aweseom of course, having gone through a few of the EU books. BUuuuut, I remember either George or Kathleen mentioning that the EU stuff would not be touched on in the new trilogy. Or was it the EU storylines? I forgot. FIrst, btw!

LOL Muenster, we may go blind watching this

Sounds like plot news not casting news.

It does sound pretty good.....if true

samurai1138 6/11/2013 6:54:10 PM

What? No Jar Jar? PASS. lol

samurai1138 6/11/2013 6:59:05 PM

Seriously though, I dont want to see another trilogy about a young Skywalker turning to the dark side. Been there, done that, refused to buy the tshirt. If they are going to use the books, Heir to the Empire had a great core story they could adapt, and who wouldnt want to see Benedict Cumberbatch as Grand Admiral Kahn, I mean Thrawn. lol

 MOST IMPORTANT LESSON FROM THIS ARTICLE:: Always take deadly serious what you learn from a website called "Schmoeville". {SNORT}

violator14 6/11/2013 7:32:20 PM

  Wait, their profiles say that they are only the "Greatest Jedis in the WORLD"?? Not the galaxy or not even their star system? Most likely they are the only Jedis on their planet so that's not saying much. lol 

btw I think this article is bogus. It's way too early for someone to get a scoop like that IMO.

TheMovieGuy28 6/11/2013 10:37:16 PM

 having a movie icon thumbnail for this article with the words "Will Jacen and Jaina Solo appear in Episode VII/?"

kind of ruins the spoiler part.

just sayin'.

Also, I wish they would go with the Yuuzhan Vong series. So much material from those books. Think of Jedi who fight tattooed Na'vi looking Maori warriors, only they disfigure themselves for honor, so the more grotesque you look, the higher your status would be. They grow their own weapons, or use animals in their culture for armor and weaponry, and last but not least, they don't exist within the force. They've come from outside the known edges of the galaxy. 

It's set around, if I remember correctly, 25 years after Jedi. You could fit the entire original cast in there, and introduce the new. If anyone has heard of the books, read them. The amount of storyline that spreads is unreal.

Come on, this has to be fake. You mean to tell me that these two are some of  the Greatest Jedi's in the Galaxy, turn to the Dark Side all in the same movie? no backstory? no witnessing of these accomplishments? this smells of fakery. Even Anakin had the Potential to be great (wasnt) but these two were great and all of a sudden they simply fall from grace for no reason? To boot, Lukes adversaries are his own family? Bull$#! moving on...

alien vs predator vs wookies vs jedi

that's what i want to see

yeah not casting news, plot news, and probably not far from true, I can't see anyone but Organa-Solo or Skywalker kids being the leads in this new series, the whole thing is about the Skywalker bloodline.

I don't think it's too early for news like this if they plan to start production in the beginning of 2014, only 6 months away. And you'd think it would have to be January if they want to release it the following summer, I still takes a long time to make a movie, especially a Star Wars movie!
