UPDATED: Open casting call for Star Wars: Episode VII leads in St. Louis and Chicago and now online!

UPDATE: The open casting call for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is now accepting auditions online. If you don't live near one of the cities holding auditions, you can click here and follow the instructions on the top right of the page to submit your video audition.

Disney is holding open casting calls for an upcoming feature that many are assuming is STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Based on the timing and the role descriptions, there aren't many other films from the studio that this could be for. This would also be a very cool chance for some lucky amateur to become a part of one of the most iconic franchises in movie history.

The casting call will have locations set up in St. Louis, Chicago, Austin, and Troy, Michigan over the coming month, so if you fit the criteria for one of these parts, I suggest you give it your best shot to join J.J. Abrams chapter of the Skywalker legacy.

Here are the descriptions for the two roles being cast:

Seeking: Young woman to play 17-18 Years old. Must be beautiful, smart and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial).

Rachel: Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to maker her way alone in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17 she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.

Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.

Seeking: Young man to play 19-23 years old. Must be handsome, smart and athletic. Must be over 18.

Thomas:Has grown up without a father's influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this, he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can't take life too seriously.

Casting director Maryellen Aviano will be on site. Aviano has been the casting director for OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, DJANGO UNCHAINED, INCEPTION, and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. These parts sound very interesting on paper and while the character names are obviously fake, this does give us some clue as to the youth focus for the characters in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Could either of these by a Skywalker offspring? That remains to be seen.
