Abrams is returning to finish the franchise he started with a script written by himself and Chris Terrio. As has become standard practice for new Star Wars installments, it looks like Episode IX is set to add some fresh faces to the franchise.

According to That Hashtag Show, producers are looking for an “ethnic female” in the age range of 18 to 26 years of age. There is a reported preference of an African-American actress to land the role. Among the types, producers are looking include actors that have “captivating naturalness” and is “A leader and problem solver. She also has a sense of humor and “Strong will”.
