Jaina solo sure since they're supposed to be intertwined with the main films...and hopefully no Vong

Hopefully this means the guy who plays Wedge comes back too

She is a little old to be cast for Jaina during the Yuuzhan Vong storyline. I think she was only in her teens when that started. To be fair it has been ten years since I read that series.

I've never read a single story with Jaina in it. I only know she exists because I thought that character figure looked amazing and looked it up one day.

I didn't mean to imply the Vong storyline, just that as soon as I saw that actress's face, it reminded me of that figure, who is Jaina Solo, is all :)

I'm SUPER excited about a lady lead X-Wing Rogue Squadron pilot (or better still, Rogue Leader!!!). Would be an awesome nod to cutting the lady pilots out of Jedi. They better not fuck this up and just make her a love interest or something stupid. I want my daughters to have heroes in the Star Wars universe that are more than Leia or R2.

I liked the character in most of the books I read. I also would like to see them actually bring Mara Jade into the picture because there is a lot that could be done with her.

I was thinking the same. I hope there's a Duro in a spacesuit somewhere, talking that Duro lingo :)

The director, Gareth Edwards, has been touting this story as "grey" and "real". What gritty deeds may have been done to gain the Death Star plans? Hmmm. One of the EU books had the early Rebellion learning about the existence of the Death Star as a result of profits from a spice raid (2nd Han Solo Trilogy from 1997). Nice touch. Whatever....I've always wanted to see a big screen version of ....Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire....

Also same. My first thought was "Interesting...but it's not very...Star Wars." No aliens. No droids. No recognizable ship parts, weapons, or armor pieces. That dude on the right might be of Asian origin? There isn't one thing in that image that says "BAM. This is iconic Star Wars." Mayyyyybe that's the same winter coat Han wore on Hoth on that guy over mid-left? How do you not leak at least the nose of an X-Wing in that shot?

I would have believed you if you'd said "This is the new Battlestar Galactica film."

Lucas was keen on alot of the gritty TV dramas of the 2000s. He was quoted as mentioning Rome, The Wire, Deadwood, and BSG remake as strong inspirations for where he wanted to go with new "off the path" Star Wars stories. Even contracting writers to write "hundreds of hours" of grittier personal stories about non-iconic characters, for the announced live action series (maybe back on again with Netflix).

Lucas was really moved when some of the lead writers and cast of BSG spoke before a special United Nations group about highlighting human rights issues with storytelling. I think he intended to move some of the Star Wars stories in that direction. To his credit, he wasn't jumping on the bandwagon, though. Lucas was a bellwether for alot of those same issues in cinema going back to THX1138. He definitely hit us over the head with despotic themes (among other things) in the prequels.

It's so early in the development, I mean we're talking late 2016 from what I heard. This is probably just something they put together while doing screen test (no CG work yet?). After seeing the pirated trailer I am honestly more excited about this movie than Episode 7.

Vader scenes described in the treatment as brutal...

The site reports that a stunt suit for the iconic villain has been made, and that Vader's action scenes will be brutal, describing the work that pitch the different ways Darth Vader could kill rebels on a battlefield with the Force and his lightsaber. The pitches revealed people being dismembered by Vader, decapitated rebels, levitating bodies to create humans shields, and more. They described the concept art as "more violent than what we’ve seen Darth Vader do on screen before."
