It's probably been the dream of every Star Wars fan to visit a galaxy far, far away. Well, that dream may finally be attainable.

Disney has submitted an Open Call for two possible leading roles. According to their ad on Cast It Talent, they are seeking a young woman to play Rachel, and a young man to play Thomas.

What are the requirements to play Thomas or Rachel?

For Rachel:

Seeking: Young woman to play 17-18 Years old. Must be beautiful, smart and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial).

For Thomas:

Young man to play 19-23 years old. Must be handsome, smart and athletic. Must be over 18.

If you're worried about auditioning because you have no acting experience, don't let that dissuade you. The only requirements to be considered for a role is that you are either beautiful/handsome, smart and athletic. You must also be over 18, so long as you can pull off looking like a teenager.

Of course, being beautiful or handsome is subjective, unless you're auditioning for a role in Star Wars. Disney clearly has a very specific rubric for how they grade beauty in a galaxy filled with red lizard-men and bi-pedal hairy apes.

The most unique catch here is that they are calling on Initiates to submit their auditions through the internet. If you've got access to a camera and the internet, you could be included in the pool of hopeful Jedi.
