There's hot competition for the lead in the new Star Wars: Episode VII with rumored contenders Attack the Block's John Boyega, Eragon and Downton Abbey's Ed Speleers, Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemons, among a few others. The person who wins the role will be playing a young Jedi apprentice, apparently.

I read a while ago that the film was originally supposed to focus on the children of Han Solo and Princess Leia, but word has it that these characters have been moved to supporting roles.

Director J.J. Abrams will begin production on the project in London in the summer, and we've heard that Carrie Fisher will return as Princess Leia.

A fan who is obviously backing John Boyega's chances as a new Jedi, is Enoch 16 on Deviant Art, who made the really cool poster above.

Who do you want to see as a young Jedi?
