So much of what's happening with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' should be taken with a grain of salt, but early word was that the film would focus on the children of Luke Skywalker and/or Han Solo and Leia (though expanded universe fiction suggests otherwise, it is unknown if she took his last name, or even if they got married).

We've got a bad feeling about this.

After the recent news that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' writer Michael Arndt was let go while director J.J.
