    Oh, my mistake. I thought we were talking about the lightsaber he lost on Bespin. My bad.

    It's not an issue. There has been no official confirmation that anyone is a "lead." Star Wars films are largely ensembles that follow many characters while some are more in focus -- IE Skywalkers -- than others like Kenobi.

    Let us all not get hung up on the semantics of this detail.

    He'll be playing an important character like Leia, Han, Obi-Wan and Padme of the past two trilogies.

    I like the idea of him being a Rouge Stormtrooper that eventually was trained by Luke to be a Jedi.

    You know, I understand that they want to showcase the new generation with Boyega and Ridley as a Solo child (most likely).

    Call me oldschool though, but to me it just wouldn't be Star Wars without a new Skywalker in there. Having a main movie without a third generation Skywalker character just feels wrong to me somehow.

    I agree that Star Wars is a ensemble, but obviously Luke and Anakin were the MAIN characters that the series centered on. That being said the new ST will/should have one character that is the main focus over the 3 films and I still believe that is Ridley.

    I think Boyega could be the main hero in VII. I think he is the one who finds Luke's Lightsaber and is the central chracter that gets the story going as he meets Ridley. My guess is when they finally meet up with Luke and after the enemy is defeated, Luke will let him keep the lightsaber as Boyega is about to start his new training (along with Ridley) as a Jedi.

    *Remember Lucas telling Mark Hamill he will pass down the lightsaber down to the next generation?*

    A rouge Stormtrooper would somewhat mirror Han's story from the OT being a smuggler who turns around and is haunted by his past via Jabba, Greedo, Boba etc. So I would be assuming Christie's character will be the one who is "Haunting him" from his past, but will that somehow cross into the storyline of the search for Luke?

    If I had it MY WAY....I would want Boyega and Ridley to be an item that take the "Heroes Journey" together. I REALLY want that to happen. Good chance it might!

    There's a difference between "official" to "fan's wish" and speculation.

    It's wrong posting a link with zero officiality as official news to someone's question.

    I still see him more as a double agent, the one that infiltrates.

    Could be possible, as I don't think JJ will carbon copy the characters' growth from OT???

    I love the idea of John Boyega as a lead character in SWVII. He had great presence in Attack the Block. And for those who say he can't be the lead character because is not related to a Skywalker/Solo. Why can't Boyega's character he there adopted child?

    I like the Stormtrooper defecting idea alot. He meets up with Daisy, they have the clashing love/hate relationship at first since John was a member of the Empire and Daisy is a freedom fighter but she will eventually learn to trust him and they work together in a great way. He could turn out to be a Jedi as another poster noted, and be trained by Luke eventually or another Jedi if Luke had found another Jedi between RotJ and Ep VII. Seeing the chemistry they have on social media and whatnot, it's a shooin' that they will be together most of the movie.

    I think it'd be awesome if Boyega becomes Luke's new padawan and along the way we see that Luke's son Gleeson is turned to the darkside in part because of feelings of jealousy and abandonment. Luke gets killed and before he dies he gets Boyega to promise to save his son from the dark side. That can BE the character arc for the 2nd and 3rd films; can Boyega's character save the son of Luke Skywalker before he is lost forever? Lots of potential with that.

    Don't worry. John is definitely the lead. Daisy is too, but we are going to be following John's character's journey.

    Boyega IMO is the co-lead like Kenobi and Solo were before him. But remember how important they were? That's crucial to remember.

    Ridley is the family protagonist that the Saga needs to center around. That's the key that I think people are forgetting or ignoring. Episodic saga is about a family. GL has made that very clear.

    1. If we have a Solo child become a Jedi, then we indeed do have a third generation Skywalker (just a different last name).

    2.Why does everyone want Boyega to be a love interest/lead? Don't get it...well...from a certain point of view, I'm afraid I do. And it's a pretty silly reason(s) from what I've seen the speculation talk discuss.

    3. I don't understand how this is the guy you want to carry the franchise through the next 3 to possibly 6 episodes. Why? Because people thought early on that he was the guy whose story line "mirrors Luke's in A New Hope?"...........That's an awful reason. Just because you hear something shouldn't make you get on board with him being "the guy."

    Honestly? Of the cast listed, he is by far the least interesting person to me. ..at least as the main protagonist. Nothing about him makes me think that he should be the new Luke (if that's what the rumors imply).

    And dear God don't try and make some convoluted speculation where he's actually Luke's son because he married/slept with a black woman. That's nearly as contrived as the ridiculousness floating around that Oscar is the biological son of Lando.

    I mean...at what point to some people not just go "Really? Seriously?"

    While I agree with your post, the wild speculation is what makes it fun even if I don't necessarily agree with some or most of it. Besides, I kind of like the absurd flavor of speculation so that we can all be surprised when the surprises come. :)
