It's not a reboot....it's a sequel. The events after Jedi.
Apparently, they aren't going with anything in the canon universe (i.e. like the Thrawn trilogy), but are instead fast-forwarding to where Luke is
already training the next generation of Jedi (including a light/dark struggle with his son). Supposedly, Luke's son is going to be the main
protagonist of the new trilogy. The are also dealing with remnants of the empire. I have to think they are introducing another big baddie (most likely
some kind of Sith Lord that will tempt Luke's son).
This is all from past interviews with Lucas, and from my own piecing together of various tidbits, so may or may not be accurate. I'd rather see them
go with the Vong, for example, and with Han and Leia's kids, etc.
A young man aged between 20 and 25, witty and smart, fit but not classically handsome, - LUKE'S SON (Ben like)
Man in late twenties, also fit, but this one is handsome and confident. - HAN'S SON (Anakin type)
Late teenage girl, independent, good sense of humour, also… physically fit . - HAN'S DAUGHTER
Second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and physically fit. - HAN'S DAUGHTER (my guess is changing out the twins Jaina and Jacen, to be two
gals, and not twins)
Man in his forties, obviously physically fit, this one is a military type. - LEADER OF REMNANTS OF EMPIRE (Like Thrawn)
A man of around thirty or so, this one is an intellectual type. - CORRUPTING SITH LORD
Finally, a guy aged around seventy, strong opinions and tough. - SITH MASTER
