Could We See A Female Lead In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

Could We See A Female Lead In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

There really isn't too much to go on here, but it's a quiet news day and we figured it would be worth the speculation. In saying that though, /Film's Peter Sciretta certainly SEEMS to know something about the gender of the lead character for the new Star Wars flick..



Peter sent out the following Tweet last night..




We didn't think too much about it at the time, but then it popped up in /Film's "Star Wars Bits" news roundup. So it would appear that Peter knows something although he is unwilling to elaborate, and is clearly hinting that we might be getting a female lead in Disney's upcoming Star Wars movie. Lets assume that's the case, which character could it be? Well there's Princess Leia of course, but I doubt she'd be singled out to be the focus out of all of the original trilogy characters they could choose from. A far more likely choice - since this is a new generation we're talking about - is the daughter of Leia and Han Solo, Jaina Solo, but since we were told that the expanded universe novels weren't going to be drawn from, that also seems like a long-shot. There are lots of established characters it could be, or we could be looking as a brand new lady for that galaxy far far away. What do you guys think?
