Skywalker/Solo kids are coming with Star Wars Episode VII

According to veteran Hollywood columnist Roger Friedman, Star Wars: Episode VII will be set some time in the future after Return of the Jedi. Luke Skywalker, Han, Leia will be in the movie and they will be older – duh. The interesting news is that, according to him, there won’t be completely different characters but their children as the new main protagonists.

In the SW canon, Luke marries Mara-Jade (ex-Hand of the Emperor and Jedi Master) and has a son named Ben Skywalker and Solos have three children Anakin, Jacen and Jaina.

All of them are strong in the force and they make the backbone of the New Jedi Order formed and trained by the Grand Master Luke Skywalker, along with heroes from different species.


It’s unclear at this point whether we’ll get movie versions of established expanded universe characters or will Lucasfilm, director J.J. Abrams, and screenwriter Michael Arndt invent all new descendants for viewers to follow. I doubt that they will scrap tens of novels, comics and stories so my money is on Ben, Anakin, Jacen and Jaina.

These kids have some really awesome story lines and if this report is true, we may see some of the awesome things they experience over the years, like Yuuzhan Vong and Darth Caedus.

Friedman says that RsD2 and C-3PO will be unchanged. And the three main actors are definitely coming back.

So now, the question is, which young actors will play their kids?

Look, I’m completely down with watching Ben Skywalker kick ass but please no child actors, no gungans and no Twilight love triangles.

  1. I am very pleased at this news, for Star Wars Fans alot of questions will be solved if you have The Star Wars characters in this new episode Sequel as they were in the newer books after Return Of The Jedi. The 3 Solo Organa Skywalker Twins are quite an handful both as Teenagers and as Young Adults. I have read the books and they all have quite a legacy, I also think a recap of the history of the Planet Dathomir should be included in the storylines as Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo and Han Solo had quite a romp at Dathomir Planet and Leia Organa fell inlove with Han Solo there. It was there that a certain Crown Prince of the Hapes Cluster also found his true love in a certain Shadow Witch Princess and he married her, at first the Prince of the Hapes Cluster had come to Coruscant to marry Leia Organa, much to General Han Solo’s anger. The Sequel VII will be a Star Wars Fan’s delight when it can be taken as true delightful Star Wars Canon to the continuation of the Star Wars Expanded Universe….I do not want to let too many secrets out since we will have to wait for the Sequel but it sounds perfect since there has been much debate between Star Wars Fans Purists and Star Wars Fan Intellectuals.
