will tell the saga of Darth Caedus, aka Jacen Solo
, and his sister Jaina Solo
An alleged casting breakdown procured by Schmoes Know
) claims this is the logline for Episode VII: "Two 17 year old twins, a girl and a boy, are trained by their uncle Luke to be the greatest Jedis in the galaxy. Problems arise when the male twin turns to the dark side."
The main characters are said to be Expanded Universe creations Jacen and Jaina Solo, who are, of course, the children of Han Solo and Princess Leia.
Here's the purported character breakdown of Jacen: "Jaina’s twin brother, one of the greatest Jedi’s in the world. A loner who is constantly struggling with the idea of what’s right and what’s wrong. Starts to turn to the dark side. Full of conviction that what he is doing is the 'right thing'. Will eventually become Darth Caedus."
It's been long-rumored that Episode VII would focus on the offspring of the original trilogy's heroes, but this is the most definitive claim yet that EU characters Jacen and Jaina Solo would be the new trilogy's protagonists.
Star Wars: Episode VII begins filming in early 2014 under the direction of J.J. Abrams and from a screenplay by Michael Arndt.
