UPDATE! Rumor: Description of Daisy Ridley’s Home in Episode VII?

Abu Dhabi

MakingStarWars posted a very detailed description of what appears to be the home of Daisy Ridley’s character in Episode VII…


From MakingStarWars :

On a desert planet, there’s a canyon, sandy and brown. In front of the canyon is a downed AT-AT walker, laying on its side. A young girl sits atop of the mechanical beast’s head. She gazes outward towards the end of the canyon where her hopes and dreams may one day be realized, not unlike Luke Skywalker yearning for more from his mundane life.  For now, this is her home, the wreckage of years of intergalactic warfare. The legs of the AT-AT are partially obscured by sand at the “ankles” but pop out at the feet. This walker has been there for some time and nature has began to take the machine into the earth. The AT-AT lays on its left side, its head levelled by the dirt from which its head smashed into during a battle some time ago. The right side of the body of the AT-AT faces upwards, battle scared, shot by many laser blasts which no doubt brought the machine down. Battle wreckage is littered all around the fallen beast. This is the dwelling of the new hero from Star Wars: Episode VII.


The underbelly has large pieces of cloth draped over it to protect the dwelling from the environment. A small ship is hidden inside the belly, like a garage. In the distance you can see TIE-Fighters which have been downed into the sane. AT-ST head sits, its body below the dirt. You can see another AT-AT body in the distance, its coverings eroded away with time.


I’m not sure if this is a concept art description or something else but it sounds really cool and I hope it’s true. And it fits with the AT-AT foot we saw from the Abu Dhabi filming.



Not Episode VII Related




A comment posted over at StarWars-Union.de (via MagnatTheGreat) seems to support that rumor. Also I’ve heard from another source that MSW’s description is most likely legit:

(translated with Google)


    so far I have all the spoilers umlesen clever, but if heading I HAD daily to get a confirmation. And so let my info out of the bag SPOILER WARNING . . . . . . . YES, in Abu Dhabi, a location was designated “Kira’s House” and this led to an AT-AT-wreck (which at that time known gespoiltem foot ). I has always been in the belief that the name of the location has nothing to do with the character. Finally, there was also Lucas Valley, Pecker’s Valley, etc. It would not be unusual, “code name” to use in the film business. Letztich the set was indeed not been referred to as SW-set and excellent. This spoiler it brings in a whole new light


Addendum: SPOILER WARNING: . . . noticed and probably fits the description like a glove auf’s eye. The part was in the sand. So the legs and the torso – an impressive image. The upper part was in my opinion a blue screen wall construction. A head did not have the part. The scene was an impressive backdrop and I will never forget in his lifetime … The character is actually supposed to mean Kira, I still will not believe but. I once googled “Kira’s House” and found out that it was a location from Teen Wolf. In this respect I had always considered it a code name.

    This would be a very cool way to introduce her character. Also, do you guys have any info on the Phil Tippet returning rumor?

  • October 1, 2014 at 3:32 pm

    I love the idea of this. And we keep getting more signs that Daisey Ridley’s character truly is the main protagonist of the film. Please don’t fuck this up J.J.

    • October 1, 2014 at 6:00 pm

      Don’t bet on it!

  • October 1, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Why would it be buried in the “earth” what planet is this supposed to be on?

    More garbage. I’m waiting for something official.

    • October 1, 2014 at 5:02 pm

      Did you even read the article at all? It said the AT-AT is on a desert planet. What happens in the desert besides it being hot? The wind blows. And what happens when the wind blows? Sand gets blown around by the wind and what happens to the sand that that gets blown around? It gets deposited elsewhere and when it gets deposited elsewhere things like abandoned cars and AT-ATs get covered, and eventually become buried by the sand. Amazing huh?

      • October 1, 2014 at 10:00 pm

        Now you know… And knowing is half the battle!


        • October 1, 2014 at 10:18 pm

          G-I Joe is gonna be in the film??? NO WAY!!!!!

    • October 2, 2014 at 4:53 am

      Well, “earth” being a synonym for the dirt, mud and clay found on the surface of terrestrial planets.

      Oh….do I have to define synonym for you?


  • October 1, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    This sounds 1000% more legit than that ass-wipe cantina scene rumour poster yesterday.

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    If I have to believe every damn rumor you post in this site the movie lenght would be up to 50 hours.

  • October 1, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    But is Nien Nunb living in the At-At, too? I demand more Nien Nunb!

  • October 1, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    A user of the German site starwars-union who who gas said for months that he was close to the set in his vacation just ‘confirmed’ this. He says that there was a sign reading ‘kira’s home’ and there was this giant at-at set. He says he was very impressed by it.

    • October 1, 2014 at 5:33 pm

      That’s very interesting. Can you find the link? It’s important.

      • October 1, 2014 at 6:36 pm

        Kira’s House is a reference to a character from Teenwolf TV series, Kira Yukimura. Google her and it’s a absolute revelation, and possibly the most significant piece of information to surface so far about EpVII.

        • October 1, 2014 at 6:54 pm

          Wow dude that Kira link to Teen Wolf is pretty crazy. Ned Vizzini wrote some episodes for Teen Wolf and was writing for Abrams on a project before he passed away. Very Beautiful Mind connection and probably a coincidence, maybe?

          • October 1, 2014 at 6:56 pm

            Not a chance – take it as gospel!

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:33 pm

    Wasn’t there an old comic book about two stranded stormtroopers living out in a destroyed walker. I cant think of what it was or find it on Google!

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:44 pm

    I don’t know, does this mean that she will not be Han and Leia daughter? Would be a shame if the new protagonist isn’t a Skywalker.

    • October 1, 2014 at 11:26 pm

      I hope she is no relation to past characters

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    Kira’s house is an AT-AT- wreck, Boyega was seen dressed like a homeless, and Luke Skywalker is stuck on some god-forsaken rock.

    Doesn’t anyone in this movie live in a nice place like Queen Amidala?

    • October 1, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      Yeah, surely there must be a few places that were abandoned by the Empire that were pretty swanky and up-for-grabs…. Maybe Theed got crappy after the Empire took over, and it just wasn’t the same place anymore.

  • October 1, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Not particularly a fan of the idea that she’s living in an old at-at .. Plus it sounds like she isn’t the daughter of Han and Leia after all which is a shame

    • October 1, 2014 at 7:36 pm

      My guess is that the wires are somehow crossed here and that it is Boyega’s character that is living out of the AT-AT when Daisy come across him… and stays with him there. After all, other costuming reports suggested that Boyega was dressed in complete tatters as though he had just been rolled in off the street. An AT-AT would be the Star Wars version of a cardboard box for the homeless, which there is at least some suggestion that Boyega fits that mold (albeit ignoring the rumor of him being a stormie on the lam, but that could still work if this is where he is hiding out to avoid Gwen). Just some thoughts.

          Alas, I have no newsletter. Sorry to disappoint (as improbable as it may be).

          • October 1, 2014 at 8:45 pm

            You’re kidding me! Get to work my friend.

      • October 1, 2014 at 7:49 pm

        Unfortunately I doubt it seeing as the description clearly mentions Daisy’s character, and the set is called ‘kiras home’ which we know is Daisy’s charater/codename

        • October 1, 2014 at 8:01 pm

          We dont really “Know” anything. And by the way i reported your comment on accident, sorry! lol

        • October 1, 2014 at 8:22 pm

          “Kira’s Home” is perhaps just code, see the references to Teen Wolf… plus such use of code is perhaps deliberate to help throw people off the pot scent.

          And who is to say there can’t be a scene where Daisy sits astride the AT-AT looking out across the landscape at the double sunset with the Skywalker theme playing, even if it is Boyega’s “home”?

    • October 1, 2014 at 7:55 pm

      So not only do we get no Skywalker offspring, but now there seems to be no Solo kids either. Maybe they shouldn’t call this Episode VII if they’re starting over from scratch?

      • October 1, 2014 at 8:43 pm

        Gleeson will be a Skywalker. Mark my words

        • October 1, 2014 at 9:27 pm

          That thought crossed my mind. It’s still a stretch to say “mark my word.”

          • October 2, 2014 at 9:18 pm

            Better then Mark my Hamill.

      • October 1, 2014 at 11:34 pm

        They are not starting over. You must have missed the big breaking news. The original big three are coming back for ep vii

      • October 2, 2014 at 1:14 am

        “Maybe they shouldn’t call this Episode VII if they’re starting over from scratch?”

        Nope. The original cast is returning 30 years later on the SW timeline to pass the torch on to the next generation. “Episode VII” is perfectly appropriate, Skywalker/Solo or not.

    • October 1, 2014 at 11:30 pm

      I hope she is not there daughter
      If she is it will be like one of those awful direct-to-video sequels Disney makes for all there animated movies

  • October 1, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    Is she possibly the offspring of someone in the new REBELS series?

    • October 1, 2014 at 7:39 pm

      I don’t want to say anything negative, but no.

    • October 1, 2014 at 7:54 pm

      Why does she have to be an “offspring” of a pre established character ? In fact, i’m getting sick of that. How about totally new characters not a bunch of his/her’s son/daughter, grandson/granddaughter, cousin, bloodline descendant or whatever? This unimaginative schlock is getting on my nerves.

      • October 1, 2014 at 8:17 pm

        Thank you. I’m so bored of how everything has to be connected and everything has to be fate and everything has to be destiny and everybody has to be related in some way. Just come up with something real and genuine.

        • October 1, 2014 at 9:49 pm

          You guys are taking things to the extreme. No one is saying that they want everyone to be related. People are just speculating on the familiar. Luke and Leia were Anakin’s children and important to the saga, so quit acting like this is some surprise conclusion with some of the new cast.

          I’m grateful for brand new unrelated characters, but I would find it strange if the big 3 plus plus Lando never bothered to have any kids over 30 years.

          • October 1, 2014 at 10:47 pm

            Yeah look at Lando he’s not related to anyone in the OT.

      • October 1, 2014 at 11:37 pm

        Amen. It’s a big Galaxy not everyone has to be related

    • October 2, 2014 at 1:54 am

      Yea, I was thinking the same thing. Maybe Ezra’s daughter?

  • October 1, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    What an epic sounding location. This is the coolest rumor I’ve heard yet and it’s only a location description.

    Seriously could it feel anymore Star Wars while still being new? Truly awesome. I hope this one is true…

    Also it starts the whole mythos of epic things have happened in the SW universe and we didn’t get to see them. Just like the OT! So a major battle was fought on a desert world and it didn’t go well for the empire…

    Again… I love this.

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    So we have a star wars film where the hero starts out on a sandy planet looking out at the distant beyond.. Hmm this sounds rather familiar.. I’m all for ignoring the garbage prequels, but I don’t want this trilogy to just copy the OT. Was it not JJ who said “I think the key to moving forward on something like this is honoring but not revering what came before.” ?

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    To the owner of this wonderful site. Can you revert the page to the old style because I want to read people’s comments without having to click on Comments to read them. Thank!

    • October 1, 2014 at 9:30 pm

      When you are on the main page and you see a story you would like to read, instead of hitting the “read on” button I suggest you hit the “comment” button. The article will be displayed along with all the comments.

      • October 1, 2014 at 9:59 pm

        That’s cool, but when you post a comment, you have to scroll down to click the link to look at the comments section again.

        It would be nice if there was a second button or something (“Post & See Comments”?) next to “Post Comment” that let you send your post before DIRECTLY going back to the comments section. Options.

        And one less annoying step for some of us.

    • October 1, 2014 at 10:05 pm

      It’s not an easy fix. When you have 200 comments the article loads very very slow. That’s why we separated the comments from the article. I have ordered a new comment system to be made especially for us. It will probably be ready in a month or two.

      • October 1, 2014 at 10:14 pm

        Episode VII’s still over a year away, so this is nothing. I just need to blink a few times….

      • October 1, 2014 at 10:30 pm

        Viral Hide. Will this new commenting system be insignificant to the power of the Force?

      • October 2, 2014 at 7:42 pm

        I was the one who posted this and I thank you for looking into it. Thanks to the guys who posted also! Darth I Don’t Give A Shit, good suggestion. Didn’t thought of that! LOL

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    I’ve seen this rumor concurred on two or three different sites now. This could be really legit.

  • October 1, 2014 at 8:58 pm

    I really hope it is true! An AT-AT ruin in a old battlefield as “home” for the main character is a very good idea. I love the idea of Daisy being the main character aswell.

    • October 1, 2014 at 9:17 pm

      Don’t bet on it!

    • October 4, 2014 at 12:18 pm

      It’s not a battlefield, it’s beggars canyon

  • October 1, 2014 at 9:20 pm

    I just see the box with Kiras House (action figure sold separately) hahaha

  • October 1, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    I’m shocked nobody is talking about the line “this is the dwelling of OUR NEW HERO.” This girl is also described as yearning for a better life, “not unlike Luke Skywalker.”

    Is this more proof that we have history’s first female-led Star Wars film? Does this mean J Boyega is the second main character?

    • October 1, 2014 at 10:08 pm

      Hey. A woman and a black man are both moving up in a galaxy far, far away….

      Not too shabby. 😉

    • October 1, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      Rumors have stated that either JB is the new lead with DR as the secondary character or the other way around. I think it’s going to be the latter of the two options, as I expect that JB and DR are going to interact a lot in the movie based on the shenanigans behind the scenes.

      • October 1, 2014 at 11:44 pm

        Rumours that might just be disinformation designed to throw people off the scent.

  • October 1, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    This is the first “rumor” that I don’t totally hate. If it is made up kudos to them for thinking of something original!

  • October 1, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    these rumors are getting too real.

  • October 2, 2014 at 4:26 am

    My guess is that the planet being described is Hoth. These are the remnants 30+ years following the battle between the Empire and Rebels and the desert conditions are either seasonal or climate change related.

  • October 2, 2014 at 10:30 pm

    A few things

    [Spoiler Caution]

    Daisy’s character name is in fact Kira. I think their was confusion on this (people assumed it was a code name posted on dressing room/wardrobe doors), but given the fact that the characters are being called by their actual names on set (at least in large crowd scenes), this dispels that assumption. After all, why use a code name everywhere else but on set, where its most useful? I for one think the name is classic, not to mention referencing a major Lucas influence, Kirosawa.

    All stories (the world over) share the same structure, regardless of new paths and plots. You only have to consider this to know that Kira will have to undergo a ‘change’ (in this case loss, training, and adventure),…which means she and most any other major youth in the film) is not a Jedi from the get go. Even though its over 30 years later and we assume any and all connected to the Skywalkers will be seasoned Jedi badasses. That’s simply not how story arcs work. There has to be a dilemma, a challenge to overcome.

    Think of an ordinary girl with spirit, toiling away on her uncle’s farm while her brother is out with Dad cruising the Galaxy and moms always away on political business and you might have a more accurate picture of her character.

  • October 3, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    Reminds me of the original script for The Star Wars, living in a ship in need of repair.
