Last week, an unconfirmed report revealed a number of new details regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which have yet to be confirmed but offer a number of intriguing details if proven to be true. Part of that story claimed that Domhnall Gleeson is playing the son of a major character, who was part of the Rebel Alliance, but he defected to the Empire after learning the Rebels were making a mysterious weapon. This character is on a secret mission to destroy both of the super weapons being made by both the Rebels and the Empire, but now according to a new report at Making Star Wars, we have even more details on this integral character. There may be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
Some sources claim that this character "going rogue" may be part of a master plan that was put in place before the events of the film start. Naturally, none of this has been confirmed yet, since no official story details for Star Wars: The Force Awakens have been released. Do you think Domhnall Gleeson is playing Luke Skywalker's son?

Know as a very private man, Dublin-born actor Domhnall Gleeson got the surprise of a lifetime when J.J. Abrams called him up to reveal that he had won a highly coveted role in one of the most anticipated sequels in history, Star Wars: Episode VII. Son of actor Brendan Gleeson, Domhnall just started to make a name for himself here in the states with 2013's romantic sci-fi time travel comedy About Time, after having played one of Ron Weasley's siblings in the Harry Potter franchise. This is definitely his biggest role to date. And the actor admits he was shocked to find himself sitting next to Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisherm, reading the script for the first time, just 24 hours after learning he was going to be a part of history.
While it's believed that he will in fact be revealed as the son of Luke Skywalker, some inside sources (with probably as much information as you and I) claim that he will be pulled to the Dark Side of the Force, and end up working alongside Adam Driver as a Sith apprentice.Read More
