Disney Casting Call for Star Wars VII

Disney has issued a schedule for open casting calls for an upcoming Disney film that we can pretty easily figure out is Star Wars VII. The descriptions of the lead characters are as follows:

Seeking: Young woman to play 17-18 Years old. Must be beautiful, smart and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial).

Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to maker her way alone in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17 she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.

Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.

Seeking: Young man to play 19-23 years old. Must be handsome, smart and athletic. Must be over 18.

Has grown up without a father's influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this, he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can't take life too seriously.

You can apply for these roles online, or attend a meet-and-greet event in Chicago, Troy, Michigan, Austin, Texas, or Nashville, Tennessee. Good luck, and when you land the role, remember where you heard it! -via Geeks Are Sexy

Can you really call it a Disney thing?
Luke grows up in his uncle and aunt's home, and they're killed in the first 20 minutes. Young Annakin (shudder) gets given away by his mother, he is apparently the product of parthenogenesis, and she dies in the second movie anyway. Leia - adopted. No strong mother figure.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
