The "Star Wars Episode 7" plot will feature an arc that features the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia that will be played by Adam Driver.

JediNews reported earlier this week that the rumor of Driver playing a villain could be put to rest.

"Sounds like Adam Driver is not going to play a villain… sort of," wrote the site. "He will be playing the son of Han and Leia, and it seems he will be seduced to the Dark Side and a main plot point for the movie will be their attempt to rescue him."

The film officially began shooting earlier today as J.J. Abrams tweeted out pictures from the set. The movie is currently being filmed in Abu Dhabi and production is expected to continue there until the end of the month.

The cast for the film was also announced a few weeks ago and it includes actors from the original trilogy such as Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford along with newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver.

The script was penned by veteran Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan. It will hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.

It might feature a title related to one of the villains in the film as it is rumored to be called "The Ancient Fear," according to an earlier report from Ain't It Cool News. The site's founder Harry Knowles claims this title was confirmed by multiple sources and also says it refers to Max Von Sydow's villain character.

There is no word on who Sydow is playing at this time. Knowles has some credibility since he's the one that first broke the news of Star Wars Episode 1 being titled "The Phantom Menace" back in 1998.
