Star Wars Episode VII Rumor: Adam Driver Could Be Playing Han & Leia's Son

Adam Driver

A new rumor being reported by Jedi News suggests that Adam Driver will be playing the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa in Star Wars Episode VII. This rumor would seem to clash with previous reports that Driver would be playing the villain in the movie, with his character being compared to Darth Vader. The report explains that Driver will be doing both, as his character is seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. The main plot of the film will be the other characters' attempt to rescue Driver's characters. Very Darth Vader like, indeed. This may also explain a bit about why Han Solo is rumored to be in more of lead role in Episode VII than the other returning cast members from the original cast. If his son is in danger, it's hard to imagine Han Solo not leading the rescue team himself, and they'd be hard-pressed to find a better pilot. The fact that Han is not force sensitive, where Luke and Leia are, may also have to do with why his friends are left behind. We reiterate that this is just a rumor at this time, and not officially confirmed. Star Wars Episode VII will come to theaters December 18, 2015.
