Over the past month or so we have been obtaining more and more news about the upcoming Sequel Trilogy. Such as the release date (December 18, 2015 for you guys who are out of the loop) and our first open casting call.
Earlier today I was sitting in one of classes day dreaming and pondering on these developments. Then I got to thinking about the role of “Rachel” and thought of something interesting.
SEEKING YOUNG WOMAN TO PLAY 17-18 YEAR OLD. MUST BE BEAUTIFUL, SMART AND ATHLETIC. OPEN TO ALL ETHNICITIES (INCLUDING BI AND MULTI RACIAL). MUST BE OVER 16.
Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to make her way in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17, she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.
Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.
One thing I would like to point out is that this character is 17 years old. While most people over look that small almost insignificant point I did not. If the movie takes place in 45 ABY right after Crucible and we look back to seventeen years earlier we see that “Rachel” would be born during the Vong War.
Now hear me on this. What if “Rachel’s” parents were killed during the YV War and she was put into a orphanage which she later ran away from. She then have to become let’s say a spice runner or something to survive(first thing I came up with). Bringing the spice across town to a dealer. One day this blows up in her face and is now on the lam from the authorities.
She then meets “Thomas” (the other character from the casting call) and they help each other out and sooner or later get mixed up in the greater galaxy (similar to Luke’s story from A New Hope). This could easily fit with the existing EU and be a fun story.
The story would also show a new generation of characters to the audience that are repeatable. I mean we all have done bad or stupid thing in our lives and this story would show that we can work together with others to be redeemed.
Plus like said before my proposed plot reflects on Luke’s journey in the Original trilogy. Imagine the moment when suddenly these two characters are thrusted into a greater conflict other than their own problems.
Either way that is my crazy theory and feel welcome to give me constructive criticism on my idea because I would love to hear it. Have a nice day or night and may the Force be with you…
