Since the official Star Wars: Episode VII cast was announced, there have been plenty of different rumours about which characters the new cast members will end up playing in the new trilogy. While there have already been a lot of rumours that Daisy Ridley will play Jaina Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII, it seems that there are also plenty of rumours as to who will play her brother Jacen Solo in the film.
We have sort of known for some time now that Adam Driver will play a villain in Star Wars: Episode VII and it looks like there could be more details about that villain he plays. Many fans are suggesting that Adam will play the role of Jacen Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII and will be seduced by the darkside, turning his back on his family and friends.
This would certainly make sense as a good plot point, with the movie focussing on Jacen's turn to the darkside and his families battle to bring him back. However, it does feel like we have already done that before and some fresh ideas would be much better to work with. Maybe they could have that as a slow building development throughout the trilogy but not the main plot. Who knows? This is all rumour for now after all.
Star Wars: Episode VII will star Domhnall Gleeson, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Max von Sydow, Carrie Fisher, Andy Serkis, Peter Mayhew, Harrison Ford, Kenny Baker, and Anthony Daniels, as well as Adam Driver. Star Wars: Episode VII is directed by J.J. Abrams and will hit the big screen on December 18, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
