So unless things have majorly change since last I heard, I assume that the film is definitely going the direction where for the first time within the franchise, we'll have a female lead as opposed to a male one? Again, as I said before, personally...I'm not against it.

I think it could be interesting. The only reason why I'm slightly worried is because we haven't had that many good franchises with a female lead where the filmmakers didn't avoid going down the melodramatic route of focusing more on things like "love triangles" and whatnot. That and I'm wondering what the transition will be like from the previous franchise since the last two saga was basically about a father and son.

Nevertheless, I think if it's done right, it can be exceptionally well. But I also hope that whoever the supporting male character is, that he isn't emasculated like Peeta is from the Hunger games just to make the female one look great and I would have said the same thing if things were the other way around.

I love Catching Fire, but Peeta is such a passive character I agree.

Every week I hear more amazing actors linked with the roles, and I feel that we will have an incredible cast when all is said and done. Just this past two weeks I have heard the names of Emmanuelle Chriqui, Alexis Dziena, and Taissa Farmiga all linked with roles – all exceptionally talented actresses. Whether any of them are cast is still unknown, but if you consider the quality of the people they are looking at – you can see the quality of the effort.

I'm still very weary of SQL.

Though Emmanuelle, the girl in the first pic, is adorable looking.

Those are probably just three actresses out of many who auditioned.

Plus Disney is still running that online audition thing. Looks to me they're still somewhat far in picking who they want for these particular roles.

Yeah it's all moot. And the open auditions don't end till Dec 2-3. And even then it'll probably take them till the end of the month to narrow down the castings, so I'd doubt we'll hear too much about it till next year. Unless we get a surprise announcement by Christmas.

Pretending that the names were at one recent point looked at among others by the casting people (or else this post doesn't exist and let's forget it happened)

Emmanuelle Chriqui is 35 years old.
Alexis Dziena is 29.
Taissa Farmiga is 19.

I think the first two names look at this point much too old to play the two major female roles disclosed thus far, so there could be some minor role those two were considered for.

Latino Review claimed before that there's a female villain role. So pretending that tidbit is legit, it could be for that part, or it's for one of the two disclosed major young woman roles. Or neither. Unlikely any "galactic Katniss" protagonist type role, anyway.

Since the casting people are claiming to only be casting through open casting for one young woman, the other role could be filled by traditional casting and that's where someone like Farmiga would fit in.

How long do you think this will be set after VI?

Personally I want something similar to Legacy where it's about a Skywalker descendent

If its the villain role than I could see Chriqui in the part . She played a Red John follower on The Mentalist for a couple seasons and was really good. She was be creepy, tough, and sexy all at the same time.

I'd like Emmanuelle to discover my lightsaber. And I prefer the other Farmiga. And I don't know anything about the middle one.

I had hoped over 30 years, but i think they'll end up setting it 20-25 years after ROTJ.

Emanuelle Chriqui would be an interesting choice. As someone else mentioned above she was quite creepy as a follower of Red John on The Mentalist. She also voiced Cheetara in the 2011 Thundercats reboot and man was her voice amazing.

Chriqui is a good actress , and I doubt many fanboys have ever even heard of her. If anything the fanboys usually want 20 something flavors of the month to play these of roles, and complain when the actress is over 30, and doesn't look like a supermodel. She could do the whole hench woman role in her sleep imo .

So, I was just sitting here, watching an encore of an entertainment/news show called The Project, and they were interviewing James Blunt... Who, it turns out, is good friends with Carrie Fisher. She's the producer on his album, they've spent nine months together 'writing songs late into the night' (is that what they call it now, James? ) One of the hosts outright asked him "Can you tell us if Carrie's going to be in the new Star Wars?" to which he replied "Yeah, absolutely. As far as I know, she's definitely coming back for the new Star Wars".
