According to seldom reliable Latino-Review, who like a stopped clock recently got something right, Peter Pan and Perfume’s Rachel Hurd-Wood and Magic Mike and I Am Number Four‘s Alex Pettyfer have read for the roles of Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher)’s daughter (and presumably Han Solo’s daughter), and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)’s son respectively.

That is of course no confirmation that they’ve been cast, or that this has even happened given Latino-Review don’t name their sources, but Hurd-Wood at least is a solid choice.

Star Wars: Episode VII is due in cinemas Summer 2015. You can buy Star Wars: The Complete Saga for £57.99 on Blu-ray from
