As usual for this film, it has taken a lot of twists and turns when it comes to the story line. Now a new rumor is upcoming that Obi-Wan Kenobi has a daughter.
This is rather weird because throughout the prequels, Obi-Wan told Anakin Skywalker not to let his feeling for Padme Amidala get in the way of duties. In addition to this, Michael Arndt wants to explain how and why Obi-Wan has a daughter. I agree with my source, it's a bit of a stretch but works for the plot of the film.
This is what THR had to say about the rumors:
The latest bit to surface this week is that Abrams and Lucasfilm are now searching for a 20-something female actress who is either of mixed race or black. The rumor is that Obi-Wan Kenobi had a daughter or granddaughter.
