A new casting notice backs up previous reports that a "Game Of Thrones"-like teenage female lead will be the central figure of director JJ Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII".
"...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.
'"'Jacen Solo' – Male, 17 years old, lead – Jaina’s twin brother. He is a loner who is 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 pursues a life separate from her twin brother and becomes the apprentice of 'Mara Jade Skywalker', progressing quickly as a 'Jedi' and a pilot, eventually joining 'Rogue Squadron'.
She also develops a romantic relationship with 'Jagged Fel' and briefly becomes the apprentice of 'Jedi Kyp Durron'.
Jacen falls to the dark side of the 'Force' and Jaina realizes her duty, as 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.
