"Star Wars: Episode VII" Updates

According to new reports, the original cast of the "Star Wars" films, plus several other 'beloved' characters from the Lucasfilm saga, will return for director JJ Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII", targeting a Summer 2015 wide release:

Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are reportedly locked in for the film, as well as Billy Dee Williams as 'Lando', Ian McDiarmid  as 'Emperor Palpatine', Anthony Daniels as 'C3PO' and Warwick Davies as 'Wicket'. Also cast are Benedict Cumberbatch and Gary Oldman.

"...two 17 year old twins, a girl and a boy, are trained by their uncle 'Luke' to be the greatest 'Jedis' in the galaxy. But problems arise when the male twin turns to the dark side.

"'Jaina Solo'- Female, 17 years old, lead –one of the greatest Jedis in the galaxy, trained by her uncle 'Luke Skywalker'.

"'Jacen Solo' – Male, 17 years old, lead – Jaina’s twin brother. He is a loner 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'...".

Jaina, named after Han's mother, was born five minutes before her twin brother 'Jacen', with the twins living at various safe havens for their first few years under the protection of Leia's handmaiden 'Winter'.

Jaina pursued a life separate from her twin brother, becoming the apprentice of 'Mara Jade Skywalker', progressing quickly as a 'Jedi' and a pilot, eventually joining 'Rogue Squadron'.

She also developed a romantic relationship with 'Jagged Fel' and briefly becomes the apprentice of  'Jedi Kyp Durron'.

When Jacen falls to the dark side of the 'Force' and Jaina realizes her duty, the 'Sword of the Jedi' requires her to stop him.

She turns to 'Boba Fett' to train her, duels and kills Jacen.

Promoted to 'Jedi Master' by her uncle 'Luke Skywalker', she marries Jagged Fel.
