I desperately want to see Disney handle the Star Wars reboot with the care the franchise deserves. That being said, Lets talk about Mara Jade.
Of the characters in Star Wars, she is one of my favorites. One I hope to see included in the reboot. Reason being, she is an integral part of the story! You can't have Ben Skywalker without her and Luke getting together!
It didn't take me long to figure out who should play this woman. Summer Glau.
Now, I know what some of you are thinking: type casting. Well, be as it may, she is perfect for this role. She was awesome in Firefly, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.The character of Mara Jade has a certain degree of bad-assery and Summer Glau definitely can fill that necessity.
Hopefully, Disney will do the Star Wars franchise justice like they have done with the Marvel universe. It has the potential to be great!
