In something that looks like casting for Star Wars: Episode VII, the call goes for twenty-something and thirty-something leads.
One female and two males is what the studio is looking for and it’s a Disney production directed by J.J. Abrams, what more coincidences can there be?
Aside from the casting calls there are other interesting bits of information, according to Showbiz411.com.

According to Jedi News, Ksenia Solo and Liam McIntyre could be up for lead roles in the Disney sequel. Yes, her last name is Solo, as in Han Solo and she could be cast as the daughter of the intrepid fighter pilot and Princess Leia.
McIntyre has reportedly read for a role as a Jedi.
The mentioned casting call is looking for the following types for their roles,
- A young man in his early 20s. Handsome, but not necessarily heroic. He is witty and smart. Physically fit.
- A young man in his late 20s. Physically fit, handsome and confident.
