New Star Wars: Episode VII plot rumour
Apparently, a casting notice has been discovered outlining key roles and plot details for Star Wars: Episode VII
It's quite possible that at this stage the following details should be taken with a generous pinch of salt, but if all of this does turn out to be true, Schmoes Know has quite the scoop on its hands. It's claiming to have laid its hands on a casting notice which reveals the following details regarding Episode VII.
Apparently the story will focus on two teenage siblings being trained in the ways of the Jedi by their uncle Luke, but problems soon arise when one of them turns to the dark side. Jacen Solo will be the male lead, something of a loner with little grasp on the notion of wrong and right. He's the one who is apparently tempted by the dark side, convinced that he is doing the right thing. This leads him on the path to become Darth Caedus. Jaina Solo is Jacen's twin sister and one of the greatest Jedis in the galaxy.
This could be a massive stab in the dark at this point - and it does seem eerily familiar to readers of the Expanded Universe novels - but this rumour does seem to tie in with a lot of the information released about the project to date. Returning cast members have been hinted at heavily and previous rumours suggested that casting would focus on getting someone to play Han Solo's son. Chloe Grace Moretz was also mentioned when Matthew Vaughn was linked to the project (not to play Han Solo's son though, obviously).
However there is that small matter of this set up linking in to stories in the extended Star Wars universe, which you would think those involved with the upcoming trilogy would want to steer clear of if they wanted to keep an element of surprise.
Expect lots more rumours before we get too much concrete. This one seemed quite fun, though.
