If there’s one thing this leaked casting breakdown for Star Wars VII can tell us, it’s that producer Kathleen Kennedy and director J.J. Abrams want the new face of Star Wars to be a physically fit one.
Here’s a very vague description of the characters that Disney is looking to cast for the next Star Wars film:
A young man aged between 20 and 25, witty and smart, fit but not classically handsome.
Man in late twenties, also fit, but this one is handsome and confident.
Late teenage girl, independent, good sense of humour, also… physically fit.
Second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and physically fit.
Man in his forties, obviously physically fit, this one is a military type.
A man of around thirty or so, this one is an intellectual type.
Finally, a guy aged around seventy, strong opinions and tough.
Aside from the pronouncement that everyone must be fit; it’s also notable that the only two female roles are going to teenagers.
