John Boyega may be the focal point of the 'Star Wars 7'

According to Cinema Blend on Monday, with thoughts of who is likely to be the main focus of J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars 7", it could likely be "Attack the Block's" John Boyega. There had been some talks about Harrison Ford's Han Solo being the person of interest, but it looks like it could be a younger generation of sorts.

It is also mentioned that Boyega's character may neither be a Jedi or a Padawan at least at the start of the movie franchise, but if older Mark Hamill takes him under his wing in a similar fashion as Yoda did with Luke Skywalker, things could change for the speculated centric focused character.

Sources have claimed that there could be a female villain in the film that is rumored to be a Sith. At least there is confidence that this is the case. With the recent female castings of "Game of Thrones'" Gwendoline Christie and "12 Years a Slave's" Lupita Nyong’o's it may be speculated that one of them could drift to the dark side.

There is also the idea of Boba Fett's armor is "around" in the film and no confirmation on who will be adorning the ensemble. Also, considering the events in these series of movies take place 30 years after "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi", at this point in time there is no New Republic.

To note: There are leaked images revealing Boba Fett's helmet in the pictures. That being said Abrams did make a bit of a stink posting a note online via the Bad Robt Twitter page. His message was to knock off posting leaked photos online and ironically he isn't entirely good at taking his own orders as he may have posted something in a similar vein.

Though the question, "Who will be the focal point" is still up for grabs, actors Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Max von Sydow, and Donald Gleason join Boyega as they set off for a performance of a lifetime.

"Star Wars 7" is scheduled to be released come Dec. 18, 2015.
