Possible Hints About Episode 7 Main Characters?

Recommended Posts

Ayingel

An open casting call sheet from Disney has been posted and has people speculating if this is for the next movie in the Star Wars seriesDisney has posted details about an open casting call for two young characters (male and female) with vague background details, and will be holding auditions throughout the UK. The fact that J.J. Abrams is directing and the roles are vague is leading to speculation that this could be for Episode 7 (as the last time the director had a similar listing, he was secretly casting his film Super 8.) Studio has neither confirmed nor denied that these auditions are for Episode 7, and Star Wars has a history of casting relative unknowns for their movies, so the chances could be pretty good that this is indeed for the film.

The descriptions of the characters have people speculating how the film is going to involve the characters.

SEEKING YOUNG WOMAN TO PLAY 17-18 YEAR OLD. MUST BE BEAUTIFUL, SMART AND ATHLETIC. OPEN TO ALL ETHNICITIES (INCLUDING BI AND MULTI RACIAL). MUST BE OVER 16.

RACHEL - Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to make her way in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17, she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.

SEEKING YOUNG MAN TO PLAY 19-23 YEARS OLD. MUST BE HANDSOME, SMART AND ATHLETIC. MUST BE OVER 18.

Thomas - Has grown up without a fathers influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself, despite this he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can't take life too seriously.

Theories have included a story that goes back and forth between the time after Return of the Jedi and the potential setting of Episode 7, or that these characters are going to be friends/supporting characters along with the children of previous characters, even calls for a possible "parental twist" have been tossed around as well.

If you're in the UK and interested in auditioning, sources have directed us here for more information.

Not sure how much can be read into the character descriptions.  I know Lost would put out casting calls that didn't actually spell out the character's role or name.  And Lost was a JJ Abrams production as well.

On the Rebel Force Radio podcast, they were theorizing that maybe, the "Thomas" character is the son of Han and Leia, and ( due to the line "without a father's influence" , not "without a father") we learn that Han left Leia and "Thomas", as he just couldn't adapt well to married life, and that maybe part of the storyline is "Thomas" needing to venture into the galaxy's seedy side to find his father for some plot point or other.  Maybe the Falcon could be a surprise carry over (besides the droids and, as we've heard from casting rumors, Chewie)  from the original trilogy.

I did see a rumour a while ago that there were blueprints for a Falcon set floating around the studios. Im slowly warming to the idea of the movies being a different continuity to the expanded universe... I think.

What if "Thomas" is younger Han?

True, there's no reason one couldn't have flashbacks in this movie, or, maybe they're doing a bulk casting call and he could be a young Han for one of the stand alone films.

Or maybe, Thomas and Rachel are just what they're calling any male or female so that they can cast multiple people for different roles without anyone knowing who they will be until after the disclosure agreement is signed.   Still leaves strong openings for this being the children.
