It is almost a year ago now, that we first mentioned the possibility of Summer Glau landing the role of Mara Jade Skywalker in the planned Star Wars: Episode VII movie. In the space of that year, there have been plenty more names linked to various roles in the film, although nothing official has yet been confirmed.
Summer Glau has developed a huge science fiction following over the years, thanks to a number of roles in some top science fiction television shows. This has led to fans calling for Summer Glau to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII, with a large amount of these fans hoping that she does eventually land the role of Mara Jade Skywalker.
In all honesty though, we simply cannot see it happening. For a start, Summer Glau is considered by many to be too young to play the role of Mara Jade Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII. Then there is the fact that it is very rare that anybody in Hollywood takes on board the opinions of the fans, preferring to take their own route.
With that said, there is still a possibility that we could see Summer Glau in Star Wars: Episode VII, after all, she does not have to play the role of Mara Jade Skywalker and we would just be happy to see her in the movie in any role. With Star Wars: Episode VII set to begin shooting this year, it should not be too much longer before we get some solid casting news.
Star Wars: Episode VII will open in the US and the UK on December 18, 2015.
