Now, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has all but confirmed there is a new Skywalker on the horizon.
She was explaining the difference between the main "Star Wars" movies and the spinoffs like "Rogue One."
"The Saga films focus on the Skywalker family saga," she told the Costco Connection, the retailer’s monthly magazine. "The stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. 'The Force Awakens' follows 'Return of the Jedi' and continues that generational story."
She continued about the spinoffs, "The Anthology films offer opportunities to explore fresh characters, new storylines and a variety of genres inside the 'Star Wars' universe."
The stories are still in development, so Kennedy was simply talking about the essence of the saga.
As for the continuation of the Skywalker story, accoriding to The Hollywood Reporter, a new character Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, is rumored to possibly be Leia and Han's daughter.
Maybe uncle Luke can teach her the ways of the Force?
