STAR WARS VII: Is Adam Driver Playing Han Solo & Princess Leia's Son?

STAR WARS VII: Is Adam Driver Playing Han Solo & Princess Leia's Son?

A source for Jedi News claims, Adam Driver ("Girls"), will be playing Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia's (Carrie Fisher) son in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars VII.

In February, Variety reported that Adam Driver ("Inside Llewyn Davis") would play the main villain Star Wars: Episode VII. They described the role: "in the vein of iconic 'Star Wars' villain Darth Vader." Now a source for Jedi News has chimed in with some additional info, claiming Driver will play the son of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).
"Sounds like Adam Driver is NOT going to play a villain...sort of. He will be playing the son of Han and Leia, and it seems he will be seduced to the Dark Side, and a main plot point for the movie will be their attempt to rescue him." - Jedi News

Star Wars: Episode VII - Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film. It's being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.

Jacen ?!

This actually makes sense.
charlie2094 - 5/12/2014, 12:47 AM
That gif though :P

So like Jacen becoming Darth Caedus? Could see that playing a part for sure. I know they're not following the EU, but if they're going down that path sure there could be a little overlap, especially since the Solo kids are all but guaranteed.

Could be interesting, long as they play it right. Assume there will be another main villain in the film, being the one who tries to change him

Will he be called "Darth Daddy-Issues"? Those types of Sith tend to be the best.

Sounds legit.

Call it masculine intuition.

I hope to god this is true

I thought his character was Gheorghe Mureșan's son.
Knightrider - 5/12/2014, 1:11 AM
I am really hoping they don't take he son approach. Think it is a bit cliche whenever they revive a franchise. New characters can interact with old, but never been a fan of the son or daughter plot.

Just going to put it out there...

charlie2094 - 5/12/2014, 1:17 AM

Doesn't rebels take place before Episode 4? Don't see how they could be the same person, about 40 years would have passed since Rebels

if he is Han/Leia's son, I hope they call him Jacen, even if he is not exactly Jacen. And I expect that Daisy Ridley girl will be Jaina, even though she's almost a decade younger than Driver.

Interesting. ..........

Yea..hate to be so dismissive but this Driver guy is one goofy looking dude.
I can't take him seriously. Total mis-cast,this film is already looking weak.
knighted - 5/12/2014, 2:55 AM
Driver is a funny looking sob.
mgeoff88 - 5/12/2014, 3:06 AM
Sounds plausible. This fits with the earlier report about him playing a villain.

On an extremely unrelated note, this pineapple and coconut Greek yogurt is no bueno. I should've eaten the peach or blueberry one instead.
Brainiac13 - 5/12/2014, 3:07 AM
I want them to cast this woman for a role as a Sith.......I give you

Bearded drag queen Conchita Wurst

So what do you think......good fit?

loki668 - 5/12/2014, 3:52 AM
Awwwwwww.....Adam? Why the long face? ;)
Tetrahedron - 5/12/2014, 4:05 AM
Was Josh Trank doing the casting for this thing? O.o

OdinsMissingEye - 5/12/2014, 4:07 AM

I did not realise that, I just thought they had a similar look.

Abary - 5/12/2014, 4:20 AM
I'd actually like him playing Jacen. It explains why Ford will have a 'big role' in the movie. The plot is unfolding nicely.

Chewie and Leia's kid maybe...??

Just putting this out there...according to the only legit canon there has ever been....

Han and Leia never got married

just saying...
loki668 - 5/12/2014, 4:59 AM

Oh! I'm not angry or anything, it's just that Pox's comment means that's what they are.
nibs - 5/12/2014, 4:59 AM
Wow. A lot of comments disappointed that he's not a traditionally handsome guy. That's sad.
DrDoom - 5/12/2014, 5:04 AM
I can't wait to see how this goes. My most anticipated film, perhaps of all time.

Bring it, Abrams. The Force is strong with you. My body is ready.

loki668 - 5/12/2014, 5:05 AM
Talent tells the tale
soforizo - 5/12/2014, 5:14 AM
Sounds like a shitty idea. He doesn't look like he could even remotely be an offspring of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher... at any length that would be distracting. I hope they find another role for him.
655321 - 5/12/2014, 5:30 AM
Han and Leia make so muppet looking children. Guess it fits in star wars.
Illcommunicatione - 5/12/2014, 5:43 AM
I think Han needs to go on Jeremy Kyle and get a DNA test as it looks like Leia got jiggy with a ferengi.
