Latest Star Wars: Episode 7 Rumors – Another Point of View.


With the Star Wars: Episode 7 rumor mill beginning to heat up again, many of you are probably wondering, as I am, how accurate the new information actually is. According to the author of the article highlighted below, it’s a rather mixed bag. POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD…

Well, the past 24 hours have seen a sudden surge in new rumors about Episode 7. As fun and exciting as this has been, it’s not a bad idea to remember that we are still at a relatively early point in production, and that many of the rumors we’re hearing may very likely turn out to be considerably less accurate than they may currently appear to be.


Billy Donnelly at This Is Infamous has posted a rather extensive look at the latest batch of Episode 7 rumors. While I think it wise to take his information with the same wary skepticism as we would any other rumor source, Billy touches on some points that I have also wondered about.


First of all, the big question is whether the latest rumors hold water or not.

Well, I hate to be Debbie Downer… or the bearer of bad news… or the party pooper… or the one to rain on your parade…


It was really all for naught, as just about everything you’ve heard, seen, read or been told today… well, it’s not true.


Now, as you’ll see in the remainder of the article, Billy overstates the matter just a wee bit here. According to his sources, it seems that not all of the new rumors are bunk. Let’s take them one at a time.



Let’s start with the Stormtrooper helmets. Those are absolutely 100% the real deal. That’s what a few variations of them will look like, and so you shouldn’t be surprised when the EPISODE VII Troopers have a bit of a different appearance when they start marching, come December 2015.


This comes as little surprise. The photos that we saw yesterday seemed fairly legit, and the fact that there was a photo of a fan-made replica in addition to the pic of the allegedly official stormtrooper helmet design seemed to back this rumor up reasonably well. I’m still not convinced of the notion that Episode 7 costume designers arbitrarily eliminated one of the two circular vents on the helmet’s lower face to create an asymmetrical look, and still think that this is assumption is due to our not having seen a straight-on frontal view of the helmet. Still, I think we can probably assume that we do indeed have a pretty good overall idea of what some of the Imperial troops in Episode 7 will look like – at least from the neck up.


Han costume sketches

 Han Solo’s appearance? This one is a bit iffy […] However, this one isn’t a deal breaker one way or the other, because all these images showed was some concept art showing what exactly an older Harrison Ford would be wearing at different points in the film. Costume changes are costume changes, but after some later information was clarified for me, I’m leaning toward believing that these could be his duds or they could not be.


He goes on to point out, later in the article, that these could very easily be early concept art that wasn’t ultimately used. I tend to agree, especially since both drawings seem to basically show Han’s clothes from Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The blue parka and cold-weather gear are virtually identical to what Han wore on Hoth, down to the badge on the left side of his chest. The sketch of Han in the brown duster looks very much like what we saw him wearing on Endor, only without the camouflage.


Could these be what we’ll see Han wear onscreen? Sure. It would certainly make sense to show Han in familiar outfits in light of the production’s stated commitment to connecting Episode 7 to the Original Trilogy. Speaking for myself, I also kind of dig the visual nod to the Firefly Browncoats (whether it’s intentional or not.) However, these could just as easily be early concept sketches in which the artist(s) warmed up a bit by drawing Han in his old OT outfits before moving on to newer ideas.



While my sources have been a little nervous about giving up information about who specifically [Adam Driver would] be playing (that’s how tightly those details are guarded on Abrams’ set), time and time again it has been stressed to me that he will NOT be an Inquisitor, as some rumors would have you believe, and, furthermore, I have been told there are NO Inquisitors in the film at all. No one on set has used the term “Inquisitors,” and whatever evil forces are at play in this galaxy far, far away, they will be called something else, but definitely not Inquisitors.


This is another rumor that I’ve gone back and forth on. Yes, the main villain in the new Star Wars: Rebels cartoon is an Imperial Inquisitor. However, it’s never really made sense to me that the Inquisitors would be assumed to have continued to be a force behind the scenes during the Galactic Civil War and then to have risen to power after the Emperor’s death, given that they play no part in the OT (due of course to the fact that Lucas hadn’t invented the damned things yet!)


Okay, so my tongue darted ever so briefly into my cheek on that last bit. But still, if the ST is going to have continuity with the OT, it makes little sense for the screenwriters to retrofit a new villain to have played a significant role in the Imperial hierarchy during the OT era when they simply were not there. True, we could stretch it a bit and assume that the trio of rather obsequious Imperial dignitaries in the Emperor’s throne room in ROTJ were Inquisitors, but to my mind they just had too much of a boot-licker vibe about them to buy them as the new galactic threat in the ST. I have no idea if Billy’s source on this is credible, but FWIW what he’s saying does tend to ring pretty true for me.


And don’t forget that Star Wars: Rebels Executive Producer and Episode VII consultant Simon Kinberg said: “In terms of a responsibility for the Rebels to sort of connect to Episode VII? We haven’t really talked about that. And there is such a huge time gap between them that really what we focus on is the connection and responsibility to Episode IV.” So, unless he isn’t telling us the whole truth on this, it appears that the Inquisitors will only appear in Rebels.



 Stemming from that, there is also an image making the rounds late, which is claimed to be this Inquisitor character, which once again isn’t an Inquisitor. It is a very cyborg-looking bad guy with mechanical parts and robotic upgrades. My intel coming in is that this main villain character does not look like this one bit. At one point, it was an idea being tossed around, and this depiction is early concept art as to what the character’s appearance could be. However, that was scrapped for something very different. This new character design also debunk’s Badass Digest’s claims that J.J. Abrams’ tweet of a robotic arm belongs to this villain. It does not. In talking over details over the character, which have been hard to come by, it was stressed to me that one of the things I could be told safely was that he is NOT robotic in nature at all.


Now, this is one rumor that I really don’t have a firm opinion on either way. On the one hand, it would make sense to carry over the theme of “more machine now than man – twisted and evil” from the previous trilogies. On the other, it would seem like this cyborg villain would come across as little more than an ersatz Darth Vader, which would run the risk of moviegoers comparing the two and wishing that they had the actual Vader back instead. With that in mind, this is one aspect of Billy’s debunking efforts that I hope actually pans out. While I won’t have a problem with it if the main Episode 7 villain turns out to be a cyborg, my personal preference is for something a little different and more surprising and unexpected.


fisher & lourd

As for the casting of Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd, she will in fact have a part in the movie. It will in fact NOT be a younger Princess Leia. Flashbacks will be a decent part of relaying information in EPISODE VII, but they won’t involve Lourd as Leia.

What they might contain though is the appearance of Darth Vader. I’ve been sitting on this information for awhile as it has been tough to confirm, but my understanding from multiple sources is that Vader will be in the film in some capacity, in either a flashback or a vision, but I haven’t been able to narrow it down as to his exact function.


Okay, a lot of nuggets of potential spoiler info here. While I would hope that they would stick with the saga’s established style and not resort to flashbacks for their expositional scenes, it is certainly possible that we might see some flashbacks. Ideally, though, what we’d see would not be flashbacks, but visions through the Force, which do have a great deal of precedence in the existing Star Wars films.


I don’t get the sense that too many of us took the news of Billie Lourd’s casting as evidence that she was going to play a young “flashback” version of Princess Leia. She doesn’t look all that much like her mother (though I certainly see a bit of Debbie Reynolds there) and it’s far more likely that she’s going to have a small role in the film in much the same way that Lucas’ children did in the PT films.


Darth Vader in Episode 7, though? Much as the nostalgic old Star Wars nut in me enjoys drifting back to the brief moment in time (circa late 1977 or early ’78) when the rumor was that the Star Wars sequel would be titled “Darth Vader Lives”, I really don’t see Abrams and company literally bringing Darth Vader back to life in Episode 7. If he is included in the movie, I tend to think that it will be in the capacity that Billy mentions – as a flashback or a vision.



Hmmm… Is there anything else? Oh, yeah… Oscar Isaac’s character definitely does NOT have the Millennium Falcon in his possession, at least not at the outset of EPISODE VII. He may wind up piloting it later, but it’s not his ship as we pick things up after the opening crawl.


This has seemed rather unlikely to me too. After Han made such a point of making Lando promise to bring the Falcon back from the Endor battle “without a scratch”, we’re to assume that he what, lost her in another card game? Sold her because that’s what married smugglers do with their rides? No, Han Solo’s relationship with the Millennium Falcon is such that any plotline involving him losing her or giving her up would be important enough to be shown onscreen rather than just told in verbal exposition. “Hey, remember that time when I…”


That said, it’s possible that Oscar Isaac’s character could be the one to whom Han ultimately passes the Falcon’s “keys”. Of course, it could be damned near anybody else in the cast too, for all we know. My own preference is for Han, Chewie and the Falcon to all go out in one last blaze of day-saving glory, but so far JJ has shown no signs of responding to my numerous and admittedly feeble attempts at telepathic spamming. ;^)


So, there we have it – another perspective to consider (or not, as your preference may be) when poring over the latest spate of Episode 7 rumors.

    So there are multiple different sources, all claiming to have their own sources, and said sources are saying different or contradictory things?

    Everyone is clinging to the rumors they like and dismissing those they don’t but at the of the day it’s all up in the air.

    Mystery Box- 1
    Everyone else -0

    I’d drill an extra hole in my dick before believing any of these so called ‘rumors’.

    • August 17, 2014 at 2:29 am


      Dude, it’s just Star Wars.

      • August 17, 2014 at 9:20 am

        It’s just his dick.

        It IS STAR WARS.

    • August 17, 2014 at 2:32 am

      Just one?

      • August 17, 2014 at 11:33 am

        Just attach a sprinkler head and be done with it..

  • August 17, 2014 at 12:30 am

    Some I like, some I don’t.

    None of them strike me as impossible though. Haven’t seen anything that would sell me a 100% either.

    Most of these sites all claim to have an inside source. However all the rumors seem slightly off….like there is truth but it’s coming through a source that doesn’t have all the info so they fill it in with their own speculation. Which causes a different source from a different site to stand up go “wrong!”.

    Mix in the fans who all have their wants and wishes and everything just becomes mud. Lol

  • August 17, 2014 at 12:57 am

    Well, that’s kind of the point of the article. We’re getting all of these rumors that have supposedly been confirmed by various “inside sources”, and a lot of them conflict with one another.

    Which tells me that we may want to lighten up just a bit when it comes to how seriously we treat these rumors. There’s nothing wrong with dissecting them – obviously, that’s part of the fun of the whole thing. But the sense that I’ve been getting as I’ve watched the rumor mill churn out scoop after scoop is that we’re getting a lot more chaff than wheat.

    But as always, with the production being as air-tight as it’s been, if we’re going to have anything at all to talk about regarding Episode 7 for the time being, it’s either rumors, rumors or rumors. ;^)

    • August 17, 2014 at 2:35 am

      Just like the good old days. Mystery box wins, but at least the process is keeping us busy.

      Only 488 days and change to go! q:D

  • August 17, 2014 at 1:02 am

    I hope somebody is taking down meticulous notes about which rumors are coming from which sources. We won’t be able to check their accuracy until the end of next year, but then by the SECOND movie we can start to have an informed opinion about which sources and would-be “insiders” actually have a clue.

  • August 17, 2014 at 1:08 am

    There are certain patterns/repeat rumors that keep showing up, some of which fit with the latest batch on the surface, but without anything solid from Disney it doesn’t mean much.

  • August 17, 2014 at 1:10 am

    From a certain point of view???

    • August 17, 2014 at 1:15 am

      Lol Exactly.

      I fully expect that to be used in a post EPVII release statement by Disney/JJ.

  • August 17, 2014 at 1:26 am

    For me flashbacks NO! Visions, done creatively, I think might work. That’s definitely the only way I could ever accept an new appearance from Vader.

    • August 17, 2014 at 3:05 am

      That’s basically where I stand on it too. Flashbacks tend to be a rather lazy way of handling exposition in the first place, and Star Wars has managed to get along just fine for all of this time without resorting to flashbacks.

      Visions through the Force would be just fine by me, though. That’s been part of the saga since ESB. (But again, as you say, only if they’re handled creatively and effectively.)

      • August 17, 2014 at 3:56 am

        You guys have only yourselves to blame. Disney is reading these posts and taking notes.

        OT fanboys cry out “we want more vader! We want Boba Fett!! We want Ralph McQuarrie designs!!!” That’s what you’re are going to get…. and they’re going to make it happen even if it doesn’t make any sense, storywise. Thus, the Darth Vader flashback scene. I’m sure there will be a plot to justify this scene, but the “real” reason is to make you fanboys happy, seeing you can’t part with Episode IV: A New Hope.

        That’s right Disney, let’s just shrink this Galaxy far far away by revising the same people and characters over and over and over again instead of expanding the mythology…..

        • August 17, 2014 at 4:06 am

          If anything Disney has shown they’re not catering to anyone and doesn’t give a duck who they upset. They’re doing their story and canon because they understand no matter what they do some people are going to like it and others will hate it.

          If they want FBs they willl put one in.
          If they don’t they won’t.

          The whole idea that Disney sits around chewing their nails reading topics like this is amusing to me.

        • August 17, 2014 at 5:00 am

          Yup, everything points to pandering to OT fanboys. That is why we are seeing nonsense like Vader flashback scenes and stormtroopers even though the Empire storyline ended in 1983.

          Oh well, at least I have the spinoffs to look forward to…..

          • August 17, 2014 at 8:51 pm

            Not to worry. It seems like there will be plenty of cosply girls in burlesque costumes to appeal to the new generation of feminist boys.

        • August 17, 2014 at 8:47 pm

          @ Jeremy VAder August 17, 2014 at 03:56 AM

          You sound like a 13 year old that’s unable to control their hormonal mood swings.

        • August 18, 2014 at 2:14 am

          I want the sequel trilogy to be to the original trilogy, what Return of Superman was to the original Donner films. Above ALL I want Vader back! And I have a feeling Disney is going to give me (and all the other Vader fans) what we want– one way or another. Preferably Vader back in the flesh but at least as a flashback or vision. Disney didn’t pay billions of dollars for Star Wars to turn around and not use its most iconic character.

          • August 18, 2014 at 7:40 pm

            Uh huh, so you’re saying that Star Wars fans should have just started saying they hated the coolest parts of Star Wars? I’m a pretty big fan that checks here often and I’m pretty sure they’re not catering to me at this point.

    • August 17, 2014 at 5:55 am

      The whole movie will be told in retrospect from an old strange hermin sitting in a cantina, trying to sell a story for a drink. “one day it happened, as i vividly remember in a neighborhood, not too far away…”

      • August 20, 2014 at 7:15 pm

        No, no, no. But at the end of ep 9 we will find out that everyone has been dead the entire time.

  • August 17, 2014 at 1:48 am

    To me, that image of the villain holding Vader’s mask/helmet is reminiscent of the “To be or Not to be” from Hamlet.

    • August 17, 2014 at 5:33 am

      That is the question … but not so much for Vader anymore.

      (Holds up mask/helmet:) “Alas, poor Vader! I knew him well …”

    • August 17, 2014 at 7:40 pm

      Perhaps it’s Joss Whedon having a laugh?

  • August 17, 2014 at 1:53 am

    After Episode VII is finally released, someone needs to go through all of the Latino Review rumors and and write an article about which ones held true.

    • August 17, 2014 at 2:16 am

      All rumors will be proven as false.

  • August 17, 2014 at 2:05 am

    Here’s something that bothers me. I’ve read reports that Luke has been held captive for 30 years. From the pics of Mark Hamill we’ve seen, sure he has a beard, but 30 years without a razor?? He’d look a lot more befuzzled if you ask me. Add to this the rumour that he doesn’t have his trusty lightsaber by his side (as it’s on a slow boat to Tatooine or wherever the hell our new heroes are supposedly to discover it) it seems like a male grooming regime for poor old Luke would have gone out the window a long time ago.

    • August 17, 2014 at 2:13 am

      Luke has mastered the Force to such a high degree that he can control his hair growth.


    • August 20, 2014 at 7:19 pm

      Force lightning can be used to singe off hair and keep beards nice and tidy.

  • August 17, 2014 at 2:41 am

    I better not see Han with that white shirt and black vest just to satisfy the OT fans. It sure didn’t work for Indiana Jones when he wore his brown outfit and original hat in the 4th installment of the franchise.

    • August 17, 2014 at 3:09 am

      Been hanging with Jon Peters a bit too much, have ya?

      “Okay, number one… lose the cape and the suit. We’ve seen enough of that already. Second of all, Superman doesn’t fly. I don’t want to see that shit anymore either.”

      And then in the third act, Indiana Jones fights a gigantic spider? ;^)

      • August 17, 2014 at 3:23 am

        Not that I have an issue with the classic Han look showing up in the movie but one would think fashion would change in 30 some years. Lol

        • August 17, 2014 at 8:19 am

          Have you ever seen an old man to change with the times?

      • August 17, 2014 at 12:12 pm

        That Kevin Smith vid is well funny!!!

  • August 17, 2014 at 3:18 am

    I would have enjoyed this article a lot more if there was absolutely no mention of Firefly. Star Wars does not intentionally mimic that series, if anything, Firefly tries to mimic Star Wars.

  • August 17, 2014 at 3:57 am

    “I don’t get the sense that too many of us took the news of Billie Lourd’s casting as evidence that she was going to play a young “flashback” version of Princess Leia. She doesn’t look all that much like her mother (though I certainly see a bit of Debbie Reynolds there).”

    Good observation. Maybe the genes in this line express themselves every second generation? We must hope that in ten years or so, Billie will give birth to a daughter, who will grow up to be Leia Reincarnate and should have just the right age when they are shooting the great Star Wars Reboot/Remake in the middle years of this century.

  • August 17, 2014 at 4:07 am

    Guessing games, maybe the lack of certainty is for the best. Surprises are fun- I hope JJ manages to hang on to the biggest secrets.

  • August 17, 2014 at 4:28 am

    “we are still at a relatively early point in production”

    are we??? 99% of all creative decisions are made in pre-production- the script is set, creatures are set, ships are set, characters are set…. EVERYTHING IS SET.

    This is not early in the overall production of the film- we are probably at the halfway point from square one till release.

    This is when stuff starts to leak- just like it did on the prequels. I’m not saying that the rumors are true but it certainly isn’t “early”

    • August 17, 2014 at 7:20 am

      I never said the film is still in pre-production. Only that it’s still too early for there to be much in the way of solid information leaking out to rabble like us. ;^)

      They’re still filming the thing. I wouldn’t expect any substantial official “leaks” for a good while yet, at least until after principle photography is finished.

      And of course, this is JJ and this is Star Wars. We’ll be lucky not to have to sign non-disclosures just to get into the theater on opening day. ;^)

  • August 17, 2014 at 4:58 am

    As long as the stupid ass rumor of them finding luke’s severed hand and trying to return his lightsaber to him are false i will be fine. I can handle must of the other rumors, but that one is so bad

    • August 17, 2014 at 5:16 am

      2 wrongs don’t make one right. And so far, most of these rumors are worse than fanfiction written without the aid of a good spell check.

  • August 17, 2014 at 5:05 am

    Ok… I was just reading the teaser from the new novel due to be released in February of 2015, “Heir to the Jedi” which will be canon. Seems like there will be a love interest – Not Mara Jade, but a black woman named Nakari Kelen! Soooo… I’m thinking maybe John Boyega is a Skywalker??? An unknown offspring of Luke Skywalker who never married. hmmmmm…

    • August 17, 2014 at 7:21 am

      I have a bad feeling about his…

      • August 17, 2014 at 5:48 pm

        Me 2…

        • August 17, 2014 at 7:41 pm

          Why a bad feeling? I don’t think it matters one way or the other really, as long as the story is good. It’s really just a minor detail, and we all expected Luke to have a son anyway…

          thought of another detail that might prove this true: is’nt Lucas’ son half black? George always said that Luke was supposed to sort of be modeled after himself….

          • August 19, 2014 at 12:06 am

            We all expected Luke to have a son? Certainly not me.

            I don’t expect Luke to be another Harry Potter, teaching his kids in the ways of the Force, but rather to keep up with the ways and traditions of ALL spiritually inclined warriors.

            In other words, I expect him to be a hermit, a recluse, a loner, who spends his time in deep meditation to increase his knowledge of the Force and his wisdom.

            Not the most popular of opinions amongst fellow SW fans, I know, but one doesn’t do much spiritual growth by being bogged down in mundane, earthly distractions, such as kids, a wife, bills to pay, a regular job, etc.

          • August 19, 2014 at 12:20 am

            Where everyone has the right to their pov I think assuming having a wife and kids by default equals his life being mundane is a little flawed.It’s possible to write the character as doing both if that’s the direction they want to go in. His life wouldn’t just poof to normal mode by having a family.

    • August 17, 2014 at 9:45 pm

      I hope not, that would be completely ridiculous! Does Boyega look mixed race to you? If that was the plan they should have cast someone of mixed race

      • August 17, 2014 at 10:08 pm

        Well he definitely doesn’t look like a mulatto, but I’ve seen mixed race people that look totally one way or the other. Look at Tiger Woods… or Lenny Kravitz.

        I could see this being the mirror of Vader/Luke. where in episode XIII Boyega tells Luke “No…. IIII am you son!”. and we all go ***GASP!***

        • August 17, 2014 at 10:18 pm

          and then Boyega is all pissed at luke for never being around as a father and the whole thing comes full circle. Both Luke’s Father and son are Sith. I think that’s pretty F’n cool!

          • August 18, 2014 at 5:34 am

            If true, maybe Boyega isn’t the child we’re looking for….

  • August 17, 2014 at 5:49 am

    Every time I hear sources talk about supposed flashback scenes, I think no, just no, don’t forget JJ’s mystery box.

  • August 17, 2014 at 6:00 am

    I bet Disney and JJ are behind a lot of the false rumors to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on.

    • August 18, 2014 at 1:58 am

      That’s crossed my mind more than a few times too…

      • August 18, 2014 at 2:07 am

        With the repeat/similar rumors that keep showing up I think there is likely some kind of truth to them. However there are bits and pieces that would make things clear that aren’t being said. I don’t see false info being leaked so much as mud being tossed in after the fact to keep a clear picture from being formed.

  • August 17, 2014 at 6:55 am

    All these rumors remind me of the end of Burn After Reading…

    “What did we learn, Palmer?”

    “I don’t know, sir.”

  • August 17, 2014 at 6:57 am

    I like the rumors even if they’re fake. It just gives us all something to tide us over until the movie.

  • August 17, 2014 at 7:14 am

    Now, I predict that Han Solo will perish in Episode VII and we will see the return of Lando Calrissian in the next episodes, taking again the command of the Millenium Falcon.

  • August 17, 2014 at 7:37 am

    People keep whining about the possibility of flashbacks, simply because the other SW films didn’t have them. But the most exciting thing about this ST is that it is something new. I don’t want to see these new films done with the same standards as the OT simply for nostalgias sake. I want to see new ideas brought to this galaxy. What’s the point of these new films if the follow all the traditions of the OT? If I want to be nostalgic, I’ll watch the OT, but I don’t want to see a routine that I’ve already seen before in these new films.

    • August 17, 2014 at 11:26 am

      The PT showed us that new and different can go horribly wrong. I don’t want the ST to be a copy of the OT. I want lots of new stuff, but that doesn’t mean it should stray too far from the film format, look and feel of the OT.

      Episode V was different enough from IV while still feeling very much the same.

        I think each trilogy should have its own feel.

          I want old and new. Not too much of either.

    I hear their will be alien storm troopers, not just human clones. The sarralac storm trooper uniform is awesome.

    A very possible scene I see is Vader returning as anakin as a ghost (talking to luke or leia maybe)

    • August 17, 2014 at 3:08 pm

      Vader/Anakin: Hey kids! How have things been going?

      Luke/Leia: We’re ok. Just small pockets of the Empire left throughout the galaxy. So hey dad, you think you could give us some names? Stormtrooper recruitment tactics, locations, etc.? Other pertinent information about the Empire YOU built?

      Luke: And why do you look so young? You look like my age! How come you’re not the old man I was dragging along the Death Star floor?

      Leia: Don’t listen to him daddy, he’s just jealous. I think you look hot like that.

    The clone troopers angle was a crap idea anyway just a production way of having one actor to help save on cost and why the F***K! with a new zealand accent OMG. This film is going to suck big time if any of the fanboy rumours come to light, that ST helmet is shite!!!! looks like an alien sex toy.

    We know jj has taken the original Macquarie sketch as inspiration for the x wing. Apparently the millenium falcon will get the same treatment. We know the current version is based on a hamburger with an olive on the side- rumour is the original sketch was a hotdog with 2 olives at one end.

    Sometimes I wonder how the internet would react if they (Disney/LF/BR) released a rumour that they have integrated characters from Legends and/or fanfiction into ep VII, as a means of social experimentation.

    • August 17, 2014 at 8:44 pm

      Sometimes I wonder what would happen if people took world events more seriously than Star Wars.

  • August 17, 2014 at 4:03 pm

    Sometimes I wonder how the internet would react if instead of family guy basing an episode on starwars, starwars based an episode on family guy.

    I still think holograms are also a possibility for some of the “flashback” rumors.

  • August 17, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    Who knows if ANY of this is true! Who knows if the naysayers are full of $hit!

    We’ll know when we see a trailer (which we should have had by now).

    I don’t know why nearly everybody seems to believe Oscar Issacs will be the new pilot of the Falcon! John Boyega could be the new pilot of the Falcon, especially if Boyega is Lando’s son and the Falcon has been in Lando’s possession since ROTJ.

    • August 18, 2014 at 12:28 am

      I think so because Isaacs is the perfect mirror to Solo. Stubborn, breathtakingly handsome, total loner(Solo), kinda dumb, and very dry humor.

      He is also a perfect candidate for Boba Fett’s son.

      They would have great, caustic interplay and humor.

      • August 18, 2014 at 6:22 pm

        Issacs and Boyega will be playing scripted characters in EpVII. They won’t be playing themselves or improvising.

  • August 18, 2014 at 12:23 am

    Han will die a dramatic death in episode 7, which will propel the story forward, and we will be left with Luke and Leia as twin Jedi elders heading into VIII.

    Han will sacrifice himself to save another character, and alter their path to the good side of the force.

    Oscar Issac will be the one who is hunting Solo, as Boba Fett’s son, as VII opens….but Solo will save his life and change his destiny. I think we will see a Boba Fett costume again, but this time worn by his son, Isaac.

    Isaac wil inherit the Falcon through Han’s death, and ultimately repay Han’s sacrifice by saving somebody who is close to him.

    Daisy Ridley will be Leia and Han’s daughter.

  • August 18, 2014 at 12:35 am

    I know there are a lot of rumors about Issac having the Falcon but unless he is a relative why would he end up with it over say Chewbacca? Or Riddly is she is his daughter? Or Leia?

    Seems odd to hand him the ship over other options.

    Not to mention if Issac is Fetts son wouldn’t he have the Slave I? Makes more sense to pass that ship to him over the Falcon if that is his character.

  • August 18, 2014 at 1:14 am

    An idea I haven’t seen mentioned about Isaac- what if he is an Organa? Possible that the whole family line wasn’t killed off.

    Maybe Han/Leia adopted him sometime after RotJ. Would at least make him getting the Falcon over others fit better imo. Would also fit better age wise. Isaac is 34 I believe.

    I would love to see Darth Plagueis. There was a teason why he was mentioned in Episode 3. I would also like to have the 100% truth about Anakin’s birth/ father and would still like to find out who erased the Jedi files in Episode. I think Lucas didn’t reveal that to us on purpose.

  • August 18, 2014 at 2:31 am

    Darth Plagueis should be the replacement for Emperor Palpatine. He should also resurrect Vader to be his apprentice. Then the two of them can lead the Empire!

  • August 18, 2014 at 2:47 am

    I like the idea. Many wouldn’t . Either way though I think Vader will get screen time one way or another( Spinoff). Look at Shmi’ s face( ” There was no father “) There’s more story to it than just that. Plus the opera scene: one of my favorite prequel scenes. Very haunting and well executed; the whole dark growling/ hum in the background. There’s more to it. Palpatine = Liar. Plus Palpatine and possibly Plagueis knew of the cloning facility and it’s possibilities. I think this was all done on purpose by George just in case of the possibility of making another trilogy either by him or another to bridge the gap and make the prequels more interesting. The whole Anakin/Shmi birth story needs to be answered as does the whole saving people from dying. Just my wish but hey it’s Starwars and know matter happens I’m still a fan. Please respond would like to see others takes on this

    • August 18, 2014 at 4:21 am

      I think the story should be: Shmi was captured by Plaguis and artificially made pregnant. Anakin would thus be a bio-engineered being created by the Sith to be the perfect Force User. Then the story would either be: 1. Plaguis plan was interrupted by Palpatine’s betrayal and the events of episodes 1-6 happened by fate or 2. It was all planned by Plaguis to overthrow the Republic and throw the Galaxy into the chaos of civil war all in preparation for his own evil schemes. In any event, a resurrected Plaguis goes in search of his experiment, and when he finds Vader’s charred remains he resurrects him using the dark side of the force. Anakins spirit is ripped from the netherworld of the force and because of his previous fall is able to be dominated by the will of Plaguis. An elderly Luke should then be contacted by the spirit of Obi-Wan and sent on a mission to once again save his Father.

      • August 18, 2014 at 8:49 pm

        I’m not saying this wouldn’t be a decent story, but it doesn’t fit with the whole purpose of the ST for Disney. This places too much emphasis on Luke and Vader rather than the next generation of heroes, since one thing is clear: the ST is the passing of the torch from one generation to the next, not reaching back to long dead generations.

  • August 20, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    Is it just me, or does Oscar Isaac looks like bearded Jagged Fel without his scar?
