While definitive news on what the story line for Disney‘s Star Wars: Episode VII remains an unconfirmed mystery, there’s some interesting news coming out of the UK about the characters and their casting details. Bleeding Cool is reporting that the list of character traits below is being used to cast a number of the parts in the upcoming Blockbuster Space Opera.

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.

There’s some interesting information in that list. The ages seem to lend credence to the children of Han and Princess Leia sub-plot being a major part of the overall storyline. Is this the lineup of character traits for those at the Jedi Academy?

What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below. Casting began today in the UK, any actors or actresses you’d like to see fill those roles?

Little padawan, Sariah Gallego truly understands the power of the Dark Side. While training at the Jedi Academy in Disneyland Gallego was tempted and turned. When told to fight Darth Vader in order to complete her training, she refuses, says she will instead join Vader and then bows before him! Evil Empire FTW! The future Sith was quickly expelled from Jedi Academy but not before creeping into our black, dead hearts with her adorable evil rebellion.

Would you be proud of your little girl making the most evil career choice and joining the Sith? Yeah, I probably would.
