A Lucasfilm verified casting call for Star Wars: Episode VII has finally leaked. And now we have a vague grasp of just what kind of characters Disney wants to cast in the next Star Wars movie. And it's a very "fit" future.
Bleeding Cool uncovered the first official casting call for Star Wars: Episode VII, and while the general descriptions are fairly vague, we think it's important to note the presence of strong, late-teenaged females.
Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.
A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.
Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.
A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.
Forty something male, fit, military type.
Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.
The Force double confirmed the authenticity of the casting call with Lucasfilm, so this is 100% the real deal. Our heart would soar if the earlier rumors about Episode VII featuring a strong female lead were confirmed by this call. But then again, it's way too early and these descriptions are entirely too vague to be certain, so we'll just be hopeful.
In other Star Wars news, JoBlo is reporting that the Yoda side movie has been dropped. Thank goodness. And that the Han Solo standalone will feature the budding relationship of Chewie and Han, and how they acquired the Millennium Falcon, which is probably better than teen Han.
