Hopefully old Luke will feel the same as the Luke from the OT but older and wiser.

I have to say, while the EU does have some good ideas and characters, I always viewed it more as glorified fanfiction.
I guess I'm the only one whose excitement for Ep7 Luke stems from the very fact that the PT Jedi were a-holes, and Luke showed promise that he'd set things right and create a new fresh Jedi Order, not saddled with arrogance and dogmatic tradition.

She also comes across as very confident girl, I can actually picture her in a lead role like this quite easily. Probably wouldn't be everyone's first choice but you'll struggle to find anyone say she wouldn't be up to it.

I want to watch Luke build his New Jedi Order personally, and show why he succeeded where the others failed. Perhaps that is something they could do with the solo/standalone films.

If they are going with the kids, I really, really hope they use Anakin, Jania, Jacen and Ben. They have so much potential. No need to create brand new characters.

Star Wars, the main film series, is about the Skywalker family. It has been since its inception. I would hope they wouldn't change that, especially with standalone films being there to tackle other characters.

If they indeed want to use the Solo kids and Ben, I hope they retcon the EU, especially Anakin's death and Jacen being a terribly written c**t.

I doubt they would follow the EU storyline for each particular character and I hope they wouldn't. Anakin as the next great Jedi, his Uncle's protege, was the dream.

Here is a nice little Update:

I think Jeff meant STAR WARS EP VII.

If there's a young female lead, I would love Elle Fanning, as she was fantastic under Abrams in Super 8.

She also passes a resemblance to Mark Hamill or Carrie Fisher.

She was terrific, but a bit young. She would suit being the granddaughter of either Luke or Leia, if they go that route.

That could definitely be pretty awesome. There are a good number of young potential actresses as well.

Have people forgotten about (sob) poor Dakota already?

Personally, I think Dakota is more appropriate age-wise than her equally talented sister. But I would rather get someone who is in their mid to late 20's..or even early 30's. Like Elizabeth Olsen or Emily Blunt. Still very young but a woman, not a girl. There's a certain toughness and vulnerability in Blunt and Olsen that I like. Also, Rooney Mara. Hell even her underrated sister too.

The toughness part is key, which is something that Leia and Han both have. And their hidden vulnerability that they try to hide from people.

Another suggestion: Brie Marling. She has a mysterious persona that I like.

I think I'm put off by Dakota because of her recent choices. I'm still learning to like Tom Cruise after War of the Worlds. Dakota doing Twilight films ain't helping. She is extremely talented, though.

I have a theory that Dakota is of age right now, what..19, where she's comfortable where's she's at. For now.

She's rich, so she's well off.. and she probably still loves acting but maybe is just tired of the business itself. So right now, she's pretty much acting when she can just to pay the bills, and hopefully she'll find a role in her 20's that can ignite her fire again.

Even JGL went through the same phase where he was finding himself and his career. He went to college during Dakota's age and found a new lease in acting with his indie movies. Maybe she is thinking about her future or even college at this point.

But JGL never signed on to a film that would have him say "Who are they, dad? Are they terrorists? Are they European?"

In all seriousness, either Fanning sis would be fine with me. I'm very excited with the possibility of a strong female lead. Cinema desperately needs one.
