    download (2).jpe [​IMG]Hey guys, just thought I would post a quick thread to see what my favorite online community of Star Wars fans had to think about a certain question I have been pondering. When Daisy Ridley was announced there was one word the world had to say, Who? Many months later the character she is playing is just as much of mystery as the Ms. Ridley herself. We have had a surplus of rumors about every other character but not even the slightest hint about who she is. Now it is your turn to give me your thoughts on the subject. Is she a random person chosen by destiny, Luke's secret apprentice, Han and Leia daughter, an undercover Sith? The possibilities are endless and that is the beautiful thing about Star Wars. Let me know!

    She'll be Han and Leia's daughter. Like Anakin to the prequels and Luke to the originals, she'll be the main character.

    I believe you are right but honestly I am hoping for something a little more out in left field.

    She and her brother were hidden, the same way Luke and Leia were, because of the Inquisitors. At the beginning of the film Daisy's character is brought out of hiding by the 'hand' incident. Her brother was discovered earlier and is heading down the wrong path.

    That's how I see it.

    If Chloe Bruce is Daisy's stunt double she will have great fight scenes, which makes me think she has had training already, maybe from Miltos Yerolemou's character.

    I love it and I hope they shamelessly rip off the Game of Thrones water dancing scene.

    I hope her character grows from an idealistic youth to a seasoned hero through classic "hero's journey" but with a more modern twist. I can see her as one of the few Luke's students disillusioned by a an overwhelming threat and has to compromise the JEDI code to overcome it!

    IMO and I have no insider knowledge on this but I think Daisy is Han and Leia's daughter and I also think she is a Jedi or a padawan. BUT I also think there are plenty of "left field" opportunities to come -- Serkis, Isaac, Von Sydow.

    JJ's a borderline genius. He and Kasdan will have created something great and unpredictable.

    I think Luke is going to be the one who is trying to compromise and Daisy is your more clear cut hero who is idealistic. Luke is just going to be a little pissed after getting kidnapped after his Ewok party :)

    Yeah, apparently Luke will be leaning a bit more towards the Dark Side, but not quite fully crossed over.

    I would bet money she's Luke's apprentice and at some point they lost contact due to his capture/disappearance. She gave up trying to find him and is on the desert planet when Luke's lightsaber falls out of the sky. That reignites her interest in finding her former teacher.

    This means Luke cannot have been missing for more than 15 years. Imagine he took her in as some sort of Padawan when she was a child, then he was captured when she was in her early teens. She spent a few years looking for him and then called it quits, feeling like it was time for her to move on and forget this Jedi stuff. When we meet her in Episode 7 she is a drifter of sorts that is still secretly haunted by whether or not Luke Skywalker is still out there.

    I believe she has been trained in the ways of the Force by Luke too. I say she is as far along in her training as Luke was in Empire. I mean how long did Luke train with Yoda anyway? She is still a novice but she can defend herself if need be.

    Sweet theory. I honestly kinda of hope we're all off so we'll be more surprised. But, I like your thinking.

    I will go on record and say I will video myself doing cartwheels in my underwear if Ridley is NOT a Solo.

    If a Solo or Skywalker is NOT the main protagonist...I will be pretty upset. The main saga should be about a family like Lucas had intended it to be. Will it be wrong if I feel cheated by this?

    Though I think Ridley is a Solo kid...I still think her function in the story has PLENTY of potential for surprises and twists. I have a feeling she's not a full on Jedi or even a padawan. I think at the end of VII, Luke will take her on his apprentice. Mirroring Ep 1 with Kenobi taking Anakin as his apprentice and it being a cliff hanger type of ending with Luke saying "You will be afraid" etc.

    Luke revising his philosophy sounds a lot like how George explained that the ST will be about moral ambiguity and making right choices (to paraphrase.)

    With this in mind it sure seems like Luke, having witnessed firsthand the "horrors of war," may be fluctuating in his ideals.

    I like all the ideas i've read up to this point, but here is a left field theory for you. she is a young Mandalorian who along her journey to discover Luke Skywalker finds that she is sensitive to the force, and later is trained to use it by Luke. perhaps this is more wishful thinking than anything but id really like to see the Mandos take center stage and finally be show as good guys rather than disposable villans.
