Star Wars: The Force Awakens Plot and Character Rumors Part II

Boba-FettThis article is a continuation of the one we reported a month ago HERE. It should be noted that the things we report below were shared with us almost 2 months ago. I intentionally left some bits out from our previous piece, because I was not fully sure in the credibility of the source. A recent report by MakingStarWars backed up some of the things the source shared with us. Now hit the jump for the whole report.

 

 

So almost 2 months ago a source supplied us with some really interesting bits (some reported HERE). Some of them were already mentioned by other sites, but some bits were new. At that time the source gave us 2 character names from the movie as a proof for his credibility. The names were “Gorwyn” – an X-Wing pilot and Captain Trilla.

 

A few days ago MakingStarWars posted an article with several Rebel names from TFA. Two of the names were Gorwyn and Captain Trilla. This report gave me more confidence in our source and I decided to report the other stuff from him.

 

 

SPOILERS AHEAD

 

 

For a better understanding of the story I will mention again some of the rumors we included in our previous piece.

 

Again, keep in mind that these were shared with us almost 2 months ago, before the latest reports about the movie’s development and the fate of some of the characters.

 

 

The-Force-Awakens-Mock-Crawl

 

Here goes nothing:

 

  • The name Rey is Daisy Ridley’s name at the beginning of the film.
  • Rey is an alias to hide her real identity. She might be Solo since she consults Han to find the saber he identifies as his friends.
  • JJ wanted to keep Ridley’s real name secret. Her identity is a setup for a plot twist.
  • BB-8 is Poe’s droid at the opening of the film. (also recently reported by MSW)
  • JK that Poe confronts in the beginning of the movie is listed in the top 10 characters.
  • Han Solo is not in the final group shot wave good bye scene. (also recently reported by MSW)
  • Luke only appears in one scene at the end of the film when Kira returns his saber. (also recently reported by MSW)
  • There is a Young Original Warrior. (also recently reported by MSW)

 

 

It should be worth noting that “Original Warrior” was apparently Luke’s script name in the same vein as “Kira” was for Rey, as both codenames were used at the Skellig Michael shoot if initials are anything to go by. While there’s still reason to question the “Luke is only in one scene” rumor, it’s interesting that our source brought it up here as well. Still I believe there’s something more to this story.

 

So actually 6 of the stories our source shared with us 2 months ago were backed up by a more detailed descriptions from MakingStarWars. And I guarantee you that our sources are not the same.

 

 

Catapult

  • Leia seems to be in a leadership role and is active in the strategy to destroy the catapult but I have no details on that part. (also recently reported by MSW)
  • Gorwyn is an X-Wing pilot and there’s a character named Captain Trilla. 
  • Code names: “Fun House” – Cantina, “Hall of Mirrors” – ship, “The Catapult” – weapon, “Tilt a Whirl”-X-Wing. All Stormtroopers are code named: buddies, buddy etc.
  • Mostly the Rebel’s are considered the Pirates.
  • Catapult is the main weapon that could destroy everything.
  • Ackbar is in the film…and I think Nien Nunb is too. He’s just referred to as NN.
  • Best I know is Christie for sure is a Chrome trooper and wears a cap and has a saber.

 

 

I went even further and asked our source what he knows about the future of the franchise. He was told that the franchise won’t end at Episode IX. They are going beyond 12! Basically think James Bond movies.

 

On the spin-off movies he said that for now there are only two movies that are currently in production (a Boba Fett and a Han Solo movies). The 3rd is down the road. There really is no info on the third at all.

 

 

Boba Fett Sarlaac

 

And now comes the most controversial part from this story that I left out from our previous report. But since so many things were backed up by other reports I decided to share it:

 

  • Boba Fett and his whole back story is set to be completely reloaded in the first spinoff movie. Disney is not happy with how George handled the character and they want to give him more of a good guy twist. 
  • Shooting starts around summer time. Production offices open in April and it will shoot along side Episode 8.
  • Like it or not but Boba Fett will be reloaded as fans know him, they are working from a plot outline (not script) from Kasdan and he wants Boba Fett to be killed when he is a kid and taken over by another person who assumes his identity. Temuera Morrison is not a box office actor and they will get someone who can lead fans back to the theaters.
  • I heard the Fett we see in Empire is Max von Sydow. What I am told is MVS kills Fett at a younger age and takes his persona.
  • I’m 99% sure that Max von Sydow is Boba Fett in TFA and ironically a role model to Kira. Still, on everything I have seen first hand Fett is not even mentioned at least by name in the movie.

 

 

Now you see why I was hesitant about posting the last part before. First of all our source is aware of the huge rumor dump on Reddit from a few months ago, when a person called Spoilerman also outlined a similar story about Fett. While our source thinks that Spoilerman was wrong on many things and used some fake sheets trying to prove his credibility, still the Fett report matched with what he has heard about him as well.

 

I’m sure that no one really wants to see Boba Fett as an old man, but I like the idea that they actually never directly mention that Max von Sydow is Boba Fett. I would advise you to take the last part with the usual amount of salt, but this source has proven his credibility. We’ll see what happens.

 

 

And last, but not least, according to our source TFA footage that will be shown at Celebration will be more like a completed trailer. It’s not going to be a teaser with just a few glimpses from the movie. We will find out about this in 45 days.

    I hope that this Boba Fett stuff is non-sense because, it just seems stupid.

    • March 4, 2015 at 7:08 pm

      Okay… thinking about it, I will only accept this new Boba Fett backstory if the following happens.

      This new Boba Fett… is actually Boba Fett, the original son of Jango Fett, that Jango was dissatisfied with and tried to replace with the cloned Boba Fett.

      If they want to go with the “good guy twist” idea (I dont know why because many of the fans complaints about the clone Boba was he was too sympathetic) Then these attributes, his “softness” should be why Jango rejected him in the first place.

      If this is done, it would give both Clone Boba and Original Boba a significantly greater depth of character.

      Does the writer of this flick have a twitter?

        Also acceptable would be that this new Boba Fett was who Jango named his son after, and that he hunted down Boba because he was the son of a renegade member of the Fett clan.

        This only way taht people will accept a new Boba Fett… is if he is more legitimate of a Boba than the cloned Boba was.

        For this retcon to work, the cloned Boba has to effectively been turned into the imposter and not the other way around.

        It makes sense to me, they will want a nice clean character. A movie about a bounty hunter would be about a really bad person, Disney won’t do that, they have to make him a “good guy”. He’ll likely only take bounties on bad people…or be forced into it, something that makes him able to relate to most people. I hate it, but it makes sense.

          Why would the clone need to be killed for that to happen? In canon, he’s done very little.
          Lost his dad, tried getting revenge on Mace, landed in prison, helped break someone else out, broke out, got a shady job for a two-bit warlord on the underground planet, worked for Jabba the Hutt. That’s it. All the other stuff is not canon.

    Disney will NOT ‘reload’ BF’s backstory. As much hate as there is for the PT, Disney would be extremely unwise to tamper with anything that is established in Episodes I-VI. Too many fans would walk away feeling as if the SW universe they knew has been altered beyond repair.

    • March 5, 2015 at 3:15 am

      Why not? The PT characterizations were never as iconic as the OT. Unloading the “special clone kid” backstory (in a respectful-enough way) might put some mystery back into this iteration of the character.

        Mark my words, Disney will not change anything from the PT. JJ, Kennedy, and everyone else involved in the new SW era have too much respect (and rightfully so) for the creator of SW, to throw away anything that is already canon. THAT is ‘why not?’.

          I guess we’ll see. FWIW, this isn’t a rewrite. It’s a continuation of the existing story that you didn’t expect.

            I never said the idea of BF being killed and his identity stolen was a re-write. I said it would be throwing away what is already canon; BF becomes an adult and remains as one character until his demise. The idea of throwing the audience for a loop by having BF a different character under the mask is dumb. I think JJ, Kennedy, et. al., know this and would not have thought this up. It is a rumor and nothing more.

    So they are going to make this new Boba Fett more of a good guy by killing a kid and taking his name? LOL!

    I repeat this THIS NEW BOBA FETT IS MADE MORE OF A GOOD GUY BY KILLING A KID AND TAKING HIS NAME!!!!!!!!!

    That makes little sense on so many levels I hardly know where to start.

    So they want to give him more of a good guy twist BUT he is going to be the character in TESB who isn’t a good guy!

    They are not happy with Boba Fett as handled by George. Why because he isn’t white?

    Why would someone take on the identity of a kid anyway? Takes his persona before he creates it?

    Box office actor? What does that even mean? This whole thing makes no sense. The box office star of Star Wars is Star Wars not any one actor.

      He killed original Boba because he is trying to kill him. Takes over his persona, has to complete some tasks to not get caught…or is caught and forced to go after Han Solo….It’s all stupid but if they do make a movie about him, he WILL be a good guy. It’s Disney.

      FYI, Boba Fett is in his early 30s when we see him in the OT. There’s plenty of time within the PT/OT gap to kill him off as an adult.
      That said, I don’t know how you ‘Good Guy’ Boba w/o really screwing him up.

      To be fair, George turned Boba non-white much later on. He was played and voiced by white actors initially…created by a white man (George Lucas), and written by a white man (Kasdan). Yes, we never saw who was behind the mask, but it is highly unlikely George originally intended Boba to be a Maori unaltered clone.

      As far as turning him “white.” Why does it matter? As long as the actor gives a great performance. Disney just made The Force Awakens with a black male lead. This despite the fact that black men are only like 6 % of the US population.

      I honestly don’t care what race the lead is as long is he gives a moving kick-ass performance.

        Actually 13%, but I still see your point. I doubt disney has an issue with Boba being non white.

      I hate when people speak as if they speak for every fan. I like the idea of an old Boba, though I see no reason to get rid of the PT Boba if you are going to show him without his helmet. He should remain mysterious, a la Dredd, if they want to reboot his identity. Also, the idea that MVS is Boba doesn’t seem to fit with the only piece of concept art we saw that was specifically based on MVS. Though they could have wanted him before they knew what role they wanted him to fill.

      It also feels like, they dont want to make too many changes… except to things that are important.

          In a universe with endless possibilities, their first goal is to change the established narrative. For God’s sake, just leave Lucas’ creation as it is. Boba is Temuera Morrison, he’s a clone, that’s it. And the bit about making SW franchise in a Bond-like film series, no. Finish it at Ep 9 then move back or forth.
          Considering the improvement comment; well, they can’t do worse than the OT. As long as Leia is a character, and not Han’s love interest in a bikini, I’m good. The prequels are great as they are.

    The Boba Fett crap makes absolutely NO SENSE. If he’s such a great guy, or “trying” to be a good guy, how to you explain being a permanent thug for Jabba or going after the bounty on Han Solo’s head placed by Vader? I can get along with the complete retcon of the EU, but to retcon stuff that’s already been established by Disney themselves as canon would make me write off Star Wars for good. I guess a great way to make a comparison would be if they decided to make Kahn a good guy in star trek, or say that the Joker was mysteriously killed and the guy who did it decides to team up with batman as the Joker. Doing any of this, included retconning boba fetts “canon”, movie history would show a complete lack of honesty and integrity on the part of Disney and the LFL story group.

    screw boba fett….if Luke Skywalker is only shown in one scene at the end of the movie…disney can kiss my behind and won’t get a dime from me…Han Solo’s death scene that has been described is an exact replica of Obi wans death… and JJ should be ashamed of himself if that is the kind of Punk Han is going to go out as. Why would hammil have to grow a real beard and lose almost 50 pounds to film one scene that hardly even shows him? it doesnt make sense at all. i am sorry but these rumors make this whole movie looks like it is going to be horrible. i guess i will just have to read reviews or download the movie myself when it is released to decide wether or not i am going to go see it on the big screen.it looks to me like JJ is going to Ruin Star Wars just as bad as when he wiped his ass with Star trek.

      Actually he wouldn’t be anywhere close to 100. He was roughly 10-ish in Ep. 2 which is three years before Ep. 3. Making him 13-ish at the time Luke and Leia were born.With Luke being roughly 18 when Ep. 4 comes out that makes Boba 31-ish. The original trilogy takes place roughly in real time, (3 years in between them) which means he is roughly 37 when he decides to play with the sarlacc from the inside. Ep. 7 takes place roughly 30 years after Jedi which makes him around 67 years old. That’s a far cry from 100.

    The problem with a re-imagined non-clone Fett is this…the most recent Blu Ray cuts of the films (with a dubbed Morrison doing Fett’s voice) are supposedly the true canonical versions. Granted if you can alter it once you can alter it again, but I think Disney realizes most fans are probably done keeping up with changes and want to move forward. The only way I can see a re-imagined Fett story working is if he really did die in the Sarlaac and a new character picks up his mantle after ROTJ. Not in the time period between the PT and OT. And what does it matter that Fett was a whiney brat kid in the PT. His dad (who he grows up to be in a way) was pretty solid and after all, who wasn’t annoying as a kid, right? Doesn’t mean they can’t make the adult character awesome.

      I agree. Nothing they do is going to make any more sense then making Leia Luke’s twin.

      I think where I come from on this is that Lucasfilm has been marketing Fett as this cool awesome character for over thirty years now and hasn’t shown us squat to prove it.

      If now Disney wants to prove it and has to make a convoluted back story to do it, well, so be it. It’s not like there isn’t precedence for it.

    You were probably better off leaving out the bit about Boba Fett being rebooted to give the report legitimacy. I will say this the concept art by an ex-Lucasfilm employee showing Kylo Ren & an X-Wing pilot (Poe Dameron) facing off on a Savannah planet jives with the opening sequence of the movie. If the recent rumors are all true, I suppose Episode 8 is where the real Luke fireworks is but we clearly don’t know.

    Well shit then, let’s go back and change Darth Maul’s history so he can get more screen time. Let’s change Jarjar to give him less/no screen time. And while we are changing things, let’s redo Anakin so he isn’t an annoying little brat and punk teen.
    Then, let’s go back and redo the scene where the stormtrooper hits his head on the door in the Death Star.

      I’d be all-in on Disney completely re-doing the Prequels. Wipe them from existence and we’ll pretend they never happened.

      Think about what a good director could do with that story. We might actually get to witness a CONVINCING conversion of Anakin from good to bad. Get to witness an epic/dramatic BIRTH of Luke and Leia.

      And yeah…no robots yelling OOOOO BAAAAAAHHHH over the delivery table while Padme dies of a “broken heart”

      You can’t even make that kind of crap up. Read the paragraph above over and over and ask yourself how the hell Lucasfilm allowed that to make it’s way on to the actual big screen.

        • March 5, 2015 at 2:43 am

          Because the OT was actually good. They can be left alone and be watchable for another 20 years.

          Special effect don’t mean crap if the acting/script/dialogue are on the level that the Prequels are. It’s impossible to watch those things without cringing every other minute.

          I honestly think Lucas had a bet going on with his production staff that he could put anything on film, put “Star Wars” on it, and it would still bank.

          Yeah he was right…but those films are among the worst ever put on film. Mind you…I love the Clone Wars cartoons…and also I saw each of the prequels multiple times in the theatre. I tried my hardest to give them a chance and I honestly tried to like them. It’s no use though….they get worse the more you watch them.

        Also considering that OT movies are almost 40 years old. Too old for younger generations. Chances are higher that OT will get reboot or remake at some point in the future.

    Hey guys it’s official… my new baby girl’s middle name is “Rey” 🙂 (I got away with it by saying it’s like a *sunshine* ray. If Episode VII flops or if Rey is boring then I can just pretend that’s what it is). Either way I like the sound of it.

    So her full name is: Ona Rey Volodka 🙂 (it has a good ring to it, no?) I figure Ona Rey could be a good pop star name 20 years down the road or whatever. If she doesn’t like it or ends up hating Star Wars then she can always change it… but I didn’t really have any better ideas.
    I’m excited about new material being released @ celebration… this is going to be an awesome year!

    If it’s true about MVS being Fett, and they only imply it, or don’t use his name, that’s a huge missed opportunity. Love it or hate it, the revelation would go down as one of the most talked about moments in Star Wars history. That said, from an artistic standpoint, I can understand just implying it. Fett always had a mystique about him, at least in the OT, and that would be in line with the guy we saw hanging out in Jabba’s palace looking badass and mysterious.

    I usually have a positive attitude about Star Wars news but the fact that they plan to go beyond episode nine is the very worst news so far. It will guarantee an uninspired ending or, like James Bond, no ending at all. Star Wars will degrade into an un-whole serialized non-story. Can you really be as excited to see TFA knowing that it’s the start of something that’s not intended to be finished (or that it will be finished as an afterthought only once the inspiration is long gone)?

    • March 4, 2015 at 11:52 pm

      That was my first thought. I know Lucas originally said 12 films but I always imagined SW best as a trilogy of trilogies coming full circle: the ruination and restoration of the great republic. Hearing that they will go forever really makes me sad. That’s why I can’t read comics, because spider-man will be trapped in a loop of growth and reset forever. I forget what author said it but stories are ment to have endings…its what gives them weight. Don’t get me wrong- i love seeing new Star Wars films, but I hope there are only nine “episodes” and then start a new saga about the old republic or some other characters in this vast universe. I don’t want to see episode XVII with Luke’s great-great grandson fighting boba fett reborn for an artifact to bring yoda back to life. With the EU gone there are endless stories to tell. Finish the skywalkers saga as Lucas envisioned it and then move on to new stories!

        I agree with this post. After 9 episodes, they should go to another time/place in the SWU. It’s got so much potential that it seems like a mis-step to keep it so confined to one small timeline. 9 eps. would be perfect.

      What a ridiculous post. You have no idea how good these films will be and yet you complain about them being the worst news so far?

        I think the implication is more that there is no planned ending. Usually it is hard to make a movie every single year and have almost all of them be good, but marvel has done a pretty decent job (with 1 or 2 exceptions) so it is definitely possible. I am cool with infinite star wars films as long as each “trilogy” stands on its own as a mostly complete story so its not just like an expensive TV series of continual cliffhangers and throwaway villains. You don’t want to water-down the brand or you will wind up with the same problems the EU had that made Disney abandon it in the first place.

    This seems a lot like a nod to that time Boba Fett trained Jaina in the EU, if it’s true. It was a weird story then and it’s a weird story now, but Kennedy did imply a while back that the people heading up the new canon were allowed to pull concepts that they liked/that worked from the EU. We’ve already seen this in Rebels and other forms of media, so it’s plausible, certainly.

            Our new heros ask to be trained in the Force and Kanan tells them he is unable to, due to the fact he gave up that life long ago. But knows of someone who can, assuming he is still alive. That’s when he tells them about Luke.

            They want to know where to find him and Kanan points them in the direction of Han Solo. The only person who may know where he is.

R2 would definitely be with Luke. 3PO, I felt would probably be with Leia, but could be an interesting plot point as to why he’s with Gleeson’s character. Care to elaborate on that one?!

          • March 5, 2015 at 1:11 am

            3PO has been with Gleeson (young skywalker) his whole life. Gleeson believes his father to be dead due to the fact he hasn’t seen him in 20 plus years and disappeared out of thin air.

            (We find out why Luke dissappeared) Luke’s Jedi order was destroyed by Plaguies. Luke lost his wife and presumed his son to be dead also. But Gleeson escaped.

            Gleeson has 3PO as a reminder of his father and 3PO has some good dialog explaining what had happened to master Luke and tells him about his father and the great adventures he went on.

            A good story telling technique without using flashbacks.

            Spoiler!!!

            There are NO flashbacks in this movie. It’s a cheap way to write a movie.

            Also to answer your Kanan question. Something happens during the tv show Star Wars Rebels where Kanan becomes scarred and unwilling to continue the life of a Jedi. It’s not touched on in the movie, but from my understanding it is the climax of the Rebels show.

            2. Are the rumours that Finn is a pacifist true? Does he stick to his moral principles throughout the film or does he eventually succumb and become a warrior?

    You people. Did none of you watch the Clone Wars? Clone Wars as of today holds 99.9% of all official Star Wars canon.

    Boba Fett as a child is a decent sized part in the series. They cant kill the kid. The only logical thing is that MVS is not Boba Fett and its a load of crap.

    The Boba Fett movie will probably use some other actor that looks Mandalorian-esque.

    Ya know. This is the golden age of television. I would rather see SW on Tv. You can tell a much longer and more interesting story than you can in a movie. You wait 2 or 3 years for someone to make a film and with that much time youd think they could do something epic. But it just ends up garbage. But the TV shows these days pump out awesome stories. Just proving story over special effect makes all the difference. I’ll give j the benefit of the doubt but have little faith at this point based on the rumours. A live action SW tv show would fair much better if done right. But this bobba stuff sounds ridiculous done in any format.

    I’m really not sure about this Boba Fett being handled as some sort of title or mantle. Then again i wasn’t too keen on him being a clone either.

    A lot of the rumors around this movie are total crap. People want SO badly for the sequels to revive the EU, but that’s not happening. The EU is gone, bye bye, adios.

    The ONLY questions you need to ask yourself when looking at these rumors are: How does this fit with Clone Wars and Rebels? How does this tell the most simple story possible for a wide range of viewers? How do we turn this into a long-term market staple?

    If you are above the age of 12, Star Wars is no longer about you. Star Wars isnt ABANDONING you by any means. Its not going ignoring your tastes completely. Its just not about you anymore; its really not. This whole thing is about expanding Star Wars to the 3rd and 4th generations of viewers and keeping it all as simple as possible. Period. End of story.

    Going on a limb here, but I interpreted the “more of a good guy” meaning here less of “a personal vendetta against all Jedi and anyone on their side due to the events of AOTC” and more “someone only working for himself” (which the OT Fett arguably WAS). If presented this way, the change would be perfectly acceptable for me. Also killing Fett as a “kid”, I’d interpret it killing him as a young man just coming of age (a literal child killing a literal child would not exactly be Disney franchise material, plus adopting the identity of someone who is still dependent on others would be infinitely more difficult than that of a loner who never appears without his helmet).

    A logical step in line with this would be that the nu-Fett does not take things personally in other regards either, and is indeed more of an anti-hero and less of a villain, “only in it for the money”. Eg. he only went after Han in ESB because there was a bounty on him, not because they were lifelong mortal enemies *cough*Legends*cough* Previously they may have even been working for several same employers, not just Jabba (for the Rebels just before that if the spinoff rumours hold true, and who knows whom else), but there’s no honour among thieves, only the next paycheck. Can’t afford to be a “friend” to a colleague, it could just as well have been Han coming after Fett due to another series of unfortunate incidents. (Bearing in mind that in the beginning of ANH, there is no canon evidence to suggest Han is yet anything else except a common criminal.)

    The ultimate twist would be of course if it was actually Han who hired the retired Fett to watch after his assumed daughter – she deserves the best bodyguard money can buy, and since it was nothing personal, Fett it is. Even an old and frail Fett would probably have limitless contacts to the underworld and superior tactical skills, plus a washed-out half-cyborg doesn’t stand out as sorely as some mercenary or bounty hunter in her/his prime (assuming here that a bodyguard squad from Republic special forces would be out of the question – they would be even more conspicuous and the more people know the higher the risk).

    No.. This is what i want for Boba Fett.. Have this appear on the same 24 hours span of return of the jedi Have him escape the sarlacc pit..but die of his wounds. Then introduce a new 30-ish of age character come in with a huge bounty on his head through the galaxy for pirating or whatever. Let him escape to the outer rim territory with the empire on his trail, and tries to hide out on Tattooine, but gets recognized by bounty hunters at a cantina and has to flee… Speeder bike crashes and he’s lost in the dune sea.. Still with bounty hunters on his trail. He takes refuge in a newly wreckage of a huge sail barge.. still smoking and on fire.. He finds the body of Boba fett, and takes the oufit and suits up.. Taking on the identity of Boba Fett.. Bounty hunters appear at the wreckage and who appears out of all the smoke… Boba Fett.. And to his amazement he sees how the other bounty hunters have respect for the outfit.. Making this the perfect cover..

            Plagueis who was thought dead by Palpatine waited in the shadows while Palpatine brought the galaxy into war and poverty. Plagueis knew his creation (Anakin) would kill Palpatine. So when that happened Plagueis picked up the pieces of a broken Empire and war torn galaxy.

    Ok so 1st off, someone used “fake sheets” to prove their credibility?? That makes no sense at all to me sorry.. I don’t buy it.

    2nd, we need a more detailed clarification on the “franchise” of the films. Most of us here, if not all of us already knew that Disney is going to make 6 more star wars films. Episodes 7, 8, 9 and three spin off films. So going beyond 12 star wars films is awesome news. But to continue on with the Episodes to 19, 20 and 21 is so going to lessen the over all skywalker story arc, lessen the skywalker bloodline and lessen the value of star wars! The more of something that there is, the less its worth! Star wars episodes need to end with 9! After that and the spin offs, continue making star wars films. Just drop the episodic numbering and then you won’t need to worry so much on having a skywalker in the film. or devaluing the skywalker bloodline and story arc. Move forward by using titles like star wars battlefront, star wars knights of the old republic and star wars the force unleashed. Move forward like the “bond” films. I think a lot of people will start to feel distanced by the time you get to even episode 11, 15 and 20.

    And 3rd, Disney is not happy with the way George lucas handled boba fetts back story in the PT?? Saying that is dumb! It sounds just like something a PT hater would say. And lets give some thought to this next bit.. Disney, lucasfilm and star wars won’t have a kid “whoever” kill a kid boba fett! Think about it people.. really.. how many people are going to take their sons and daughters to see that?? Not the mass public. That is totally alienating their target demographic! Bob iger himself said “there is a high demand for more star wars films”. So they have done the demographics. Having some adult “whoever” kill the adult boba fett is what will/if it does happen, happen. More than likely the mantle will be pasted down.

    Isn’t Boba Fett 4.0 in the spin-off going to be a female, therefore obviously the daughter of Fett 3.0 (MVS) Unless Max is older Kanan, which is my pet hypothesis.
    Personally I prefer BF to be a BF, especially after watching that badass Mandalorian huntress in the Old Republic game. Furthermore the fact they cast Felicity Jones as the main star of the spin-off lends credence to the rumor, unless she portrays the primary antagonist.

    Heck he even got Trekies to be extras with small speaking roles in the ST reboot…..
    What kinda Director would do that or even think about it?

    Not saying I totally agree or disagree with anything on this thread but here’s what I don’t understand. What from the OT makes Boba a “Bad Guy”? He’s hunting Han Solo who pretty much seems like a total scumbag until he meets Luke and Leia and finds redemption. Han really is the epitome of a thug when he meets Luke. A guy that borrows but doesn’t repay debts, takes what he wants and kills anyone who tries to call him on his crap! To me they don’t have to paint Boba than anything other than a guy who uses Bounty Hunting as a means to an end for fans to be all in. Show him living in a Mandalorian version of a shanty town that shows a shell of his people who’s respect and living conditions were shattered by the clone wars. I mean he saw his dad get decapitated in a very “Show Offish” sort of way and held his head in his little hands. Jango by the way seemed like a loving, cool dad so I can see why if he sees a Jedi with the guy he’s hunting he’s gonna see red. And on the whole “He worked for a criminal warlord or Vader” argument I will say this, Boba always had this body language like he could care less for the people he worked for or their master plan. Like he found them loathe some but at least they paid and paid well

    This is all misdirection. JJ knows the big money shot is having the classic characters back in the Falcon’s cockpit together. Luke, Han, Leia, Chewy & 3PO. I am certain there will be a scene with them all in that cockpit. This guff about Luke being in right at the end just doesn’t wash with me. He grew that beard soo long. That ties in with his either being held captive or guarding some tomb. JJ knows that fans will be left bitter if Luke, Han & Leia don’t have at least 2 or 3 scenes together. I would like to see Han rescue Luke & say something like ‘good to see ya, kid!’ That would make my day. Han always had that protective Fatherly side with Luke which I loved.
    This is all BS now. Boba Fett alive? Luke has 1 scene?
    I have every faith in JJ as a fan of Star Wars & faith is Larry Kasdan that they WILL give the fans a few sugar rushes with the classic characters.
    I would dearly love to see Luke use the force as Yoda did in Empire. Just that complete mastery over it. THAT is the Luke I think JJ will want to convey to us too.

    Boba escapes the sarlaac climbing up using those wrist spikes that jango had in his gauntlet aswell.
    He then walks the desert back to jabbas palace and freezes himself in carbonate.
    Maybe a time lock or affiliation with the hutts to thaw him out after 30 years ….
    He does this because the carbonate heals his body after the damage caused by the pit
    Or he drags the carbonate to just on the edge of the sarlaac pit and enters it knowing the sarlaac would reach out and pull him in. This way he has insurance that the 30 years needed to slowly heal his damaged body he would get (at least) maybe even 1000 years until the sarlaac dies. Either way when it does die, the carbonate should be safe from harm due to it’s design, until someone thaws him out.
    Even buried deep beneath the sands, this is an old mandalorian trick used for thousands of years to hide / repair / disappear / a form of time travel.

    A Boba Fett cameo would be a nice spin…
    If this was not a movie by JJA, who, in other occasions, has already shown no respect, whatsoever, for SW:

    – “Poe Dameron”, random character name over easy canon reference.
    – Extended role for the chubby guy from heroes, opposed to a cameo role for Mark Hamill.(Allegedly.)
    – Rumors about a Nien Numb cameo, but most likely no Lando.
    – And, of course, rumors about killing off Han Solo, because, you know, fans took Chewbacca’s death in the EU so well.

    I am going to be blunt and say that I trust the Denis-Lawson-crap-detector: If the movie really turns out like it seems to do, it will just bore me.

    I listened to a very smart review of Star Trek 2009, where it was said that Abrams was great about creating the right feel, but not about creating the right story. From all I hear, it increasingly appears like he copied that formula for his approach to SW.

    Understand me right, I certainly hope the best, but I don’t really expect it, any more.

    @ daft vader- wouldn’t let me reply for some reason.

    Agreed. Two last questions for Bothanspi before I give him a break:

    1. How does Kylo Ren fit into this story? Is he related to the Solos? What is his motivation?

    Yes he is Han and Leia’s son. He was born not long after ROTJ. When his parents split that took a toll on him. He began spending his time fascinating about his grandfather and ancient sith. He fell into the hands of Darth Plagueis, from there Plagueis promised him he will be more powerful than Vader was. This is what got Kylo hooked. And as we know, once down the dark path you go, forever will it dominate your destiny.

    2. Are the rumours that Finn is a pacifist true? Does he stick to his moral principles throughout the film or does he eventually succumb and become a warrior?

    Finn was drafted into the Imperial academy, he does not want to be apart of the empire. And when he is ordered to execute innocent people he detours from the empire. Once he meets up with out new heros (rey, poe) he finds a cause worth fighting for. He is force sensitive.

    Bothanspi I apologize for being so quick to dismiss your rumors.

I have one question for you…Who is Rey really? What is her true identity?

      You’ve every right to be skeptical. And I do hope you enjoy the film as much as I have enjoyed working on it. Fortunately I have been hired on for episode 8. What a dream come true!

      Now to answer your question.

      Tho it is not implied in TFA who Rey is or where she comes from there are several clues that lead to who she is.

      Living on Tatooine, not knowing who her parents are. After she meets up with Kanan, Rey, Finn and Poe are with Han most of the film looking for Luke. (Finn and Poe go there own way, I can get into that later) Han implies that he had a son. Only one child.

      So from what I’ve seen at pinewood and the way the story is shaping up for episode 8, my most educated guess is that she is Luke’s daughter.

        But, correct me if I am wrong, I thought you said in the Cantina that we are led to believe that Rey is Luke’s daughter; however, she is really someone else? I was asking who she really is, that is, if you know?

          I don’t know for 100 percent certainty for its not revealed in TFA, but all signs point to her being Luke’s daughter.

    max von sydow plays khan noonien singh.

    jar jar is anakin’s father.

    lando and ackbar have robotic arms, plastic feet, barbie doll hair, and three nostrils.

    ezra bridger is luke’s step father…and his brother-in-law by the time tfa opens as he married leia when han ran off with mon mothma. rey’s father was yoda, and her mother(s) were some drunken midichlorians from the outer rim.

    han’s death happens in a steel cage tag team matchup with he and chewie facing the wampa and an old school battle droid. referee lobot is distracted by the wampa’s manager, boss nass, allowing the battle droid to clothesline han on the turnbuckle.

    qui gon’s cock is so big…(how big is it?!)…george lucas intends to cgi it into the special edition blu ray release of “revenge of the sith” and nickname it “catapult”.

    Wait a second how can Boba Fett be considered a good guy if he helped the Empire capture Solo in the OT? This was Max during the OT. Doing illegal business with crime lords. Is this considered heroic? Think about it hes helping Vader in more than one way now that he is hunting the Emperor’s cyborg bounty hunter in the Marvel comic.

    We should implement a category system when talking about spoilers. Eg a category 1 spoiler would be a name of an alien or something irrelevent to the overall plot. category 10 would be a still of burning Anakin,etc ie.an actual spoiler. at this point i’m so bored and starved of E7 news i’ll click on just about anything. but it would be nice to know when to proceed with caution.

    Do you know if Han Solo does die in EP7 or are the rumours just bullsh1t?

    I’m going to be mighty p1ssed off if Han Solo dies and will most likely not bother watching EP 7,8 and 9.

    Would be way to heartbreaking seeing Han, Luke, Leia or Chewie die on screen, I’d be devestated!

    I grew up with them all and they are like family to me.

    I just reckon it’s the worst idea ever having Han Solo die. I’d rather EP7 be set 100 years later with no Han, Leia, Luke and Chewie in it than see them die on screen. Such a horrible, morbid idea! I don’t know how anyone could be comfortable seeing Han Solo die on screen.

      I can promise you that NO OT characters die in TFA.

        1 question: what/who is Rose? (lupitas character)

        • March 5, 2015 at 4:40 pm
          Permalink

          She is a mocap alien who gives Rey, Finn and Poe a vision of the future. She shows them what will happen if our heros do not go on to find Luke.

          This happens right after Rey, Finn and Poe talk to Kanan.

          Rey, is all on board to find Luke, while Finn and Poe are skeptical. They are debating weather or not to seek out this old Jedi who is presumed dead anyway.

          That’s when “Rose” shows them what will happen to the galaxy if they don’t go. As the vision ends her bar gets raided by Chrome troopers! Rey, Finn and Poe need to escape quickly. While they are fleeing Han Solo offers to rescue them on his falcon.

          If you’ve seen TFA trailer you’ll remember the falcon flying over Tatooine being shot at by tie fighters, that takes place soon after Han and our heros flee from the bar and in the falcon.

          Lupita better not be Rose, a total waste to replace the actresses beauty, elegance and grace with that of a short, old, and orange alien bar owner. You don’t hire an actress with her physical attributes, CGI remove her and then replace her with a puppet.

          I stated on another article that star wars in 1977 was the first movie I remember going to as a child. So to work on this film was a dream come true.

          So as a fan, I would be upset too. JJ won’t be remembered as the guy who killed Han. He’s already gotten enough flack for his Star Trek films (which I liked)

    “Luke has one scene at the end of the film where Rey gives him his lightsaber”

    Luke says “Oh thank god. I lost the 35 years ago and my life hasn’t been complete since. Now I can I finally live my life, watch out force here I come!!”

    True fans know this is misinformation. The whole lightsaber plot point is the mystery box at its finest.

    bothanspi, I want to believe you. Really, what you’re saying sounds fantastic and better than all the other leaks. I mean that!
    BUT: can you show any proof that the things you’re saying is real and that you’re not someone who’s making all this up?

      I am sure that MSW and this website work hard and are truly trying to bring the best information available to fans.

      However many of these leaks are purposely put out to detour people from the real information.

      I wish I could give you some proof, as of now all I can do is give you all the information I have and when the movie comes out we will see who is right. You guys have been amazing, truly.

      I bring this information because I have received free so I give free. As a star wars fan and a fan of this website I wanted the fans to know some real leaks. Not some of these crazy rumors I have heard for the past 6 months.

      Love you all.

        Right. Ok.
        MakingStarWars described the teaser trailer CORRECTLY.
        Maybe you tell:
        -When the next trailer will be released
        OR
        -What will be in the next trailer
        OR
        -something else that can be verified sooner than december 18

        That way, we’ll know sooner if you’re speaking the truth (again, I SO hope you’re right and MSW is wrong) but just like Admiral Ozzel once said: I want proof, not leads.

            Assuming that you’re genuine (which I hope):
            -What are the real names of Finn, Poe and Rey?
            -What’s the last scene of Han Solo?
            -Are there scenes in which we see Luke, Han and Leia together? And if so: can you describe those scenes?
            -You said C-3PO is with Gleesons character who is with the Imperials. So, no R2 and 3PO together this movie?

    I don’t know why but Bothanspi’s information just sounds plausible (much more than other rumours) and I really think it could be true. Plus I like his/her plot-line better than the other ones being bandied about so I also sort of hope it’s true. For now I am going to believe Bothan… also his/her accent is British and he/she is posting during European daytime so it makes sense he/she lives in the UK and could have been working at Pinewood.

    You say that Han Solo isn’t going to die in EP7 which is great news but do you know why Han Solo isn’t in the film at the end then like how Making Star Wars are reporting?

    Are you able to give some info about this?

    “Doing illegal business with crime lords. Is this considered heroic?”

    No, those are not heroic attributes, but a character who engages in that sort of activity can still be presented as a hero. I mean, take Han, for instance. As a smuggler / pirate he did plenty of illegal business with crime lords, and yet he was still presented to us as one of the heroes in ANH and we happily rooted for him. Heck, judging by the outrage over Greedo shooting first, I’d even wager that people actually prefer it when their heroes have a dark, edgy side to them and aren’t too much of a Dudley Do-Right.

    Regarding Boba Fett, Jeremy Bulloch has said that his entire portrayal of that character was based on Clint Eastwood’s performance as “The Man With No Name” in A Fistful of Dollars. Clint’s character was basically presented to us as the ‘hero’ in that movie, even as he was basically shown to be a ruthless gun-slinging killer.

    Jango Fett’s name is a reference to the 1966 Corbucci film Django, a character who was basically a hyper-violent drifter, and this film was also one of Quentin Tarantino’s inspirations for his film, Django Unchained. Quentin’s title character is basically a ruthless murdering bounty hunter, and yet we root for him as the hero because he is pitted against much more ruthless villains.

    So it seems to me that Boba Fett could totally be presented in this same ‘anti-hero’ kind of way, with the story writers staying true to the character’s Fistful of Dollars roots, and convincingly portray the character as a hero we would root for without that ‘good guy’ status automatically turning the character into a pansy.

    Another old recycled Fett rumor from a year ago! The Kasdan rumor originally came from AMC movie talk. It feels like these sources get some stuff right but read whatever rumor is being reported on the net by Googling for other bits. It lines up with what Jar J was saying about some rumors being true and others are false. Once he leavez Star Wars this misinfo will never end. Other studios jerk Latino Review around with bait and switch info. This is an industry wide practice. Dont’t go around saying theres isn’t a misinfo campaign either.

    In the script, there are three different terms for Luke.
    The term “Luke Skywalker” is only used at the end of the movie. It is the shaved, “normal” Jedi-Master Luke who takes on Rey as an apprentice.

    The other two terms for Luke are the ones used to show him as a “Young Warrior” and as the “crazy”, bearded Luke. Both of those have some screen time as well but it won’t be as much as Rey, Finn, Dameron, Han and some others.

    So Luke does have more screen-time in the movie than just the last scene. And his screen-time is very important for the plot and also very cool.

    Hey…MVS as Boba Fett is plausible without the “assumes identity” BS.
    Remember the earlier rumours having MVS as a part cyborg?
    Boba Fett, after being consumed by the Sarlac , escapes after being partially digested, alive yet horribly disfigured. Rescued by a good Samaritan, he is rebuilt, part machine, , just like Vader. ..however now a convert to the force… looking like Temura is irrelevant with a cybernetic face..

    surprising how nobody picked this up
