Do you think the Solo children should be in the new Star Wars movies? Why or why not?
I don’t mind if they’re not. I’ve never been particularly fond of the Solo kids, to be honest: No strong baseline characterization and hampered early on by some of the EU’s worst writing, which they never really managed to recover from. (IMO, natch.) Pre EpVII announcement, I wrote a whole post on this in relation to Jaina and the SotJ trilogy.
I won’t mind if they appear in Episode VII, but they are by no means my first choice, and I’d rather see them in the background than as primary protagonists. Plus, yeah, I’d trade any or all of them in for Mara or a female Skywalker.
