The rumors keep coming in on the name of the character that will guide us through Star Wars: Episode VII and the sequel trilogy. So far there has only been one name: Kira. That could be any actor or character on the set, of course. But this name keeps coming back up and it has leaked from different departments and crews. The first leak came via a sign in a vehicle that was marked “Kira” at Puzzlewood. Our Twitter friend @DaisyRidleyNews also heard from their own source that the hero of the film is named Kira and played by Daisy Ridley. We’ve got several messages backing that up in the last few months as well. One source even went as far as to say it was a tribute to Akira Kurosawa.
This was tweeted out in the last 24 hours:

Like we always say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. It is looking more and more likely a main character is named Kira and that character has now spanned several sets, locations, and countries. So, if I had to bet, Daisy Ridley is Kira in Star Wars: Episode VII. It could be a code name. It could be the real name.
