Tonight Get Your Geek On host David Gremillion revealed on his show that a source had told him some information about Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's roles in Star Wars Episode VII.
Gremillion stated that the source confirmed to him that Ridley's character name is Kira, which fits with rumors we have heard before. The source also added that at some point Kira will take to space in the film flying a starfighter. The source cited seeing footage of Daisy Ridley in a cockpit making maneuvers in space.
Concerning John Boyega's character, the source confirmed to Gremillion that Boyega is indeed playing a Force-user, most likely a Jedi, and wields a lightsaber. This also fits with many rumors we have heard concerning Boyega's role.
It sounds more and more like Ridley and Boyega will be the pillars of the new generation of Star Wars characters.
