Get outta here. A new SW Trilogy where the main protagonist isn't a Skywalker, but rather a Solo? Pfff!!!! They should rename it: The Legend of Solo --- The Force Awakens instead!

I mean it would be somewhat of a recurring motif in the trilogy, where like Luke..she was raised by her aunt and uncle, only to find out that her biological dad is a Powerful Jedi.

But again, if she just turns out to be Han and Leia's....it would still work for me.

Rey (to Han): "Dad, what's going on?"

Well, if she's Leia's daughter, she IS a Skywalker

Maybe Leia keeps her name Skywalker and doesn't change it to Solo even though they are married. Or perhaps Leia got separated from Solo prior to Rey's birth,Leia kept it from Han so that Rey has the legal name of Skywalker and not Solo.

Leia has never had the surname Skywalker. She is Leia Organa.

Padme married Anakin and didn't take the last name of her husband.

Kathleen Kennedy married Frank Marshall and didn't take the last name of her husband.

Lots of women don't do that anymore.

Keira Knightley is still Keira Knightley. It is what bosses do.

What kind of name is that for a female? I can only see "King", or a nickname for "Reynaldo". They should have spelled it Rei.

Or...

That would be a funny play on words. "King" (Rey) is really "Queen" (Reina).

Maybe she uses a male name to trick people into thinking she's a dude! Ok maybe not.

Maybe it was a concession to the toy companies.

LUCASFILM: Make female toys.

HASBRO: F*** that. You know we hate that doing that s***!

LUCASFILM: Do it.

HASBRO: Uh, give her a guy's name so we can trick people into thinking they are buying a dude.

LUCASFILM: Ok then. Now do it.

Maybe she wears a mask with a male voice synthesizer. She pretends she is a man early on in the film. Similar to Leia using that mask in ROTJ.

Her name being "Kira Rey" would make a lot of sense if her brother's Kylo Ren. However Rey isn't a masculine name by default. If girls can be named Tyler and Ryan, a fictional space heroine can be named Rey (and Rae can be a girls name with Ray being the typical male counterpart).

I see a certain Ridley was photographed meeting Tom Cruise on the set of Mission Impossible 5 the other day. It's on the Daily Mail website in an article titled "Gun-toting Tom Cruise films night scenes for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5 against backdrop of the Tower Of London".

All the recent rumors seem to be heavily pointing towards her as the new main character, the Luke Skywalker or Harry Potter if you will. And if these rumors hold up, I can understand one of the older rumors. That We wouldn't be sure of who the new main character was until the final scene of the film.

That's an interesting idea but I am leaning more towards Rey being the main character for now. Could be we think Finn is but it turns out to be Rey. These two characters will be very interesting over the course of the trilogy. Lots of opportunities there to twist them around. One of them could very well turn to the dark side.

Or both of them share the same importance and the trilogy is about the two of them instead of the one like Anakin or Luke. That would be a new concept for the franchise.

If the new rumors are true, and there is a real possibility they are, Rey/Kira or whatever her real name is, is going to be the main character. Especially if Kylo ends up being her brother and they are Solo/Skywalers.

This film seems to be about a lost and lonely young girl, who must come to terms with who she is and what she chooses to do with that info.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
If the final scene of the film is her returning the lightsaber to Luke, becoming his student, yeah there is no doubt. That puts the trilogy squarely in her hands.

I think that was from Brendon formerly at Bleeding Cool. But, not exactly.

So I’ve gone in and read for it, but I have to say, I think it’s the only time I’ve ever thought, ‘You know what? Even if I don’t get it, I had so much fun auditioning, pretending to take out a lightsaber – out of a bag, kind of inspect it and not know what it is. That was… that was great. A lightsaber! Star Wars!”

Disney really did want to keep any association with Star Wars out of this one but I’ve got it locked in that, actually, this is all definitely to do with Episode VII.

The first role, and which I understand is the movie’s lead, is for a young girl aged 17 – though a 16, 18, 19, 20 year old could certainly play the role if they have the right look.

...

Abrams and Kasdan appear to be reworking the flow a little, and will do some dialogue and character work, for sure, but the building blocks of story are staying pretty much untouched. Well… that’s a bit of a relief, I guess.
Open auditions script was based on Chapter 19 of the first Hunger Games novel. Katniss is Rachel; Peeta is Thomas.

Abrams said the script was finished in January 2014.
