POTENTIAL “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” SPOILERS AHEAD
One of the longest running rumors about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been that at least one if not several of the characters would be the offspring of the original cast members.
In particular Daisy Ridley’s Rey character has often been suggested to be the daughter of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher). Others have suggested the offspring of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) will play a part in the plot.
Making Star Wars has posted a report dismissing those rumors, saying:
“None of the heroes… the kids… are Solos or Skywalkers. Rey is not a Solo. It would not knock me on my knees to learn she is a Solo. VII does not answer that question. It just presents it. We have not seen anything to make us think the girl is the daughter… yet.”
In related news, a convention exclusive Star Wars Stormtrooper toy is set to go on sale at Comic-Con this year. A photo of the packaging confirm that it will be a ‘First Order’ Stormtrooper and how these new footsoldiers fit into the overall “Star Wars” universe.
