Influence of the Star Wars Legacy Volume 2 Comic Series on The Force Awakens Story and Rumors

Legacy Star Wars: Legacy Volume 2 is a comic series first released on March 2013, that now falls under the Legends category. Back in August 2014 we did an article pointing out the similarities between the comic series and The Force Awakens rumors (HERE). Now almost a year later, with a considerably bigger amount of new rumors and facts, we will take a much closer look at the connection between the two. As you will see below, the amount of similarities are simply too much to be just a coincidence…




This article has been written by Cantina member Aglarion. Special thanks for the great effort.






Ania Solo Finds the Lightsaber


Let’s start with our main character Ania Solo (Rey), who is a descendant of Han and Leia. She was working as a junk dealer when she accidentally discovered the lightsaber of Imperial Knight Yalta Val (Luke) after an Imperial communications droid (BB-8) containing the lightsaber turned up in her junkyard.



She later joins forces with Imperial Knight Jao Assam (Finn) when he tries to help her during a skirmish on Carrera Major, a barren desert world (Jakku?)


Jao Assam had just escaped flying his starfighter out of an enemy ship’s hangar before landing on this desert planet. Later in the story Jao Assam becomes a deserter, he gets rid of his imperial armor and adopts a more casual attire. In this case the Imperial Knights are part of the Fel Empire, one of the members of the Triumvirate (good guys). Imperial Knights are described as a kind of light/grey force users.


Jao Assam


After leaving the desert planet our heroes are soon captured in the tractor beam of a larger ship and their freighter is deposited in the larger ship’s hangar. They are captured by the main antagonist Darth Wredd (Kylo Ren), who is looking for the lightsaber mentioned earlier. While in captivity, one of them is interrogated by Wredd. (In this case Jao (Finn) instead of Ania (Rey). After their escape Jao confronts Wredd in a lightsaber duel but gets seriously injured. Ania, the reluctant hero, finally steps up, she grabs Jao’s lightsaber and goes after Wredd.


Darth Wredd






The search for Luke:


One of the main rumors going around is that the search for Luke is one of the most important parts of the plot and that the movie ends with Rey finding Luke and returning the lightsaber to him. The story in this comic series could shed a light on these events. It is interesting to note that before chasing Ania (Rey) and company, Wredd (Kylo) ambushes and captures Yalta Val (Luke) and also:


“While looking through the shipment of junk, Solo discovered an Imperial communications droid, which had actually been launched by the crew of Imperial Knight Yalta Val a week earlier before their ship had been attacked.”


Yalta Val


Let’s assume Luke has been in possession of the lightsaber lost in Bespin for some time now, he could have found it at any point during the last 30 years. He was on a mission near Jakku when his ship was ambushed and he was captured by Kylo soon before the beginning of the movie (or maybe this is how the movie begins), perhaps part of Luke’s crew escapes the ship in an escape pod with the lightsaber and they arrive at that village (the one being attacked by Kylo and his troops during the second teaser). Luke failed to report or an SOS was sent, so Leia sends Poe to investigate, and then BB-8 escapes with the lightsaber, and meets Rey soon afterwards.
My main point with this line of thoughts is that perhaps they are searching for Luke because he has been captured and they finally save him at the end of the movie. Rey giving him back the lightsaber at the end of the movie would actually make more sense this way.



The super weapon and the puzzle:


“Due to his combat prowess and reputation, the man who became Darth Wredd did not anticipate a threat that he could not handle. During the last years of the Second Imperial Civil War, the One Sith’s Galactic Empire invaded his homeworld. He tried to defend his people but was no match for the Sith. The Sith Lord who commanded the Imperial invasion disarmed him by destroying his sword with his lightsaber. Instead of killing him, the Sith Lord recognized the man’s Force potential and decided to make him his apprentice. He started out by forcing the man to watch from his flagship as he took the opportunity to test a new Sith weapon designed by Vul Isen which devastated his homeworld and wiped out the population, leaving him as the only survivor.


The planet was knocked off its orbit, becoming a rogue planet which wandered the galaxy. Afterwards, the Lord forced him to wear a mask all the time to ensure his obedience, temper his weakness, and to teach him hatred. Wredd was also stripped of his identity and was forced to adopt the persona of Darth Wredd. While his master’s training technique succeeded in bringing him to the dark side, Darth Wredd developed an abiding homicidal hatred of his master and vowed to kill him when the opportunity arose. Darth Wredd spent his apprenticeship travelling on his master’s starship.”


Super Weapon

There is obviously a super weapon as well on this story arc. On further investigation it seems this super weapon has two effects, a biological component that wiped out the population of Wredd’s (Kylo) homeworld, and the blast itself, that can knock a planet off its orbit. When Wredd (Kylo) captures Val (Luke) he takes him to his homeworld. When our heroes discover Val was imprisoned and decide to go rescue him the following happens:


“After loading Assam’s starfighter aboard AG-37’s freighter, they plotted a course for the last known coordinates of the uncharted planet in the Surd Nebula. While travelling there, they were pursued by a pair of Shifala starfighters and the starship’s port thruster was hit by laser fire. Upon entering the nebula, the Carreras starfighters broke off their pursuit. Upon arriving at the coordinates, they discovered that the uncharted planet had simply vanished into space.”


Now it seems we have a Kamino 2.0 effect here, this time the Rogue planet seems to be moving in an unknown trajectory and they have trouble finding it. Remember the rumor about the droids solving a puzzle to find Luke’s location? Well maybe they already know which planet he is imprisoned on but they can’t find the planet and this is what the droids figure out – its location!



How The Force Awakens could end based on these stories:


“When Solo came to, she was horrified to find the hangar destroyed after the battle, and AG-37 urged her to pursue the Sith and stop him, reminding her that her ancestor Han Solo had become a hero because he always helped his friends. Grabbing Assam’s fallen lightsaber, Solo took Assam’s starfighter and headed for the moving planet—now located just in front of the communications array—in pursuit of the Sith. Spotting the Sith’s shuttle, Solo headed down into a series of caverns, where she found the newly-proclaimed Darth Wredd declaring an insurgency and preparing to execute Yalta Val live on camera, a spectacle that was being broadcast all over the galaxy using the Carreras communications array. Solo interrupted Wredd’s speech and opened fire upon the Sith, but he used the Force to disarm her before he entangled her in wreckage and threw her to the floor.



However, Yal summoned Assam’s lightsaber from Solo’s boot just in time to free himself and stop Wredd from executing him, and the two began to duel as Solo freed herself. Seeing that the array was about to crash into the planet, Solo fled the caves and returned to Assam’s fighter in hopes of saving Sauk and AG-37 from the array, and she dragged her injured friends to the freighter despite Sauk’s pleas that she save AG-37 and get to safety. Escaping aboard the freighter, AG-37 flew back down to the planet’s surface and Solo rushed to the boarding ramp so that Master Val could leap aboard, and the freighter escaped just before the array crashed into the planet.


Tending to Sauk in the medbay, Solo apologized to her unconscious friend for involving him and getting him hurt, but Val and Solo were called to the cockpit by AG-37 when the droid encountered a surprise—Jao Assam, floating in space but still alive thanks to the Imperial comm droid. Solo began to care for Assam in the medbay as well when they brought the injured Knight aboard, and Solo repeated her apology to Sauk when the Mon Calamari awoke—but Sauk brushed it off, reminding Solo that she had saved all of her friends.”


Yalta Val vs Darth Wredd


To simplify, let’s say after Kylo injures Finn and flees, Rey grabs the saber and goes after him to try and find Luke’s location. Maybe she loses him at some point and that’s where the droids help her find the location of the planet. When she confronts Kylo the battle might not go so well but Luke manages to grab the saber with the force and free himself. Maybe there is some action between Kylo and Luke but Kylo soon realizes he has no chance and flees again. I guess this would make a more climatic ending than Rey just freeing Luke and giving him the lightsaber.


It is curious that the location were Val is being held is described as a series of caverns. Could part of this have been shot on the cavern location in Vietnam?



Other character connections:


marasiah fel

The leader of the Fel Empire, Marasiah Fel (Leia). She is one of the leaders of the good guys, she has a monarchic title (remember the rumors about “Queen” Leia?). She is related to Ania Solo (Rey), and she is also an imperial knight (force sensitive like Leia).



This one is more far fetched but I see some relations that I wanted to mention:
We have heard a lot of rumors about MVS so far, it was claimed that he was like a mentor and friend to Rey, that he was playing Boba Fett, that he was a cyborg, that he was trusted to watch over Rey by her parents, that he is the vicar in the village Kylo attacks.


Well the droid in this picture, AG-37, could have inspired many of those rumors, he is an IG series assassin droid much like the IG-88 in ESB and he has been around since Han Solo’s time (so maybe he is even the same bounty hunter droid). He is like a friend and mentor to Ania (Rey), he helps her to set up her junkyard. The reason he helps her initially is an unknown promise he had made to her ancestor Han Solo, long time ago.


There is a sequence in the comics that might resemble the Kylo village scene in some way:
Wredd (Kylo) shows up in Ania’s (Rey) junkyard with some security forces demanding the lightsaber, he then orders his forces to kill everyone. AG-37 then shows up and saves Ania, he gets slashed in half by Wredd (Kylo) later in the story but since he is a droid he gets easily repaired. Perhaps in the movie MVS tries to help Poe and that’s why he is killed?



More on Darth Wredd (Kylo):


As mentioned, before his homeworld was attacked by the Sith. Wredd was like a hero to his people. He realized he was force sensitive and since he didn’t have any Jedi to teach him, he trained himself. He didn’t have the knowledge to build a proper lightsaber but he managed to forge himself a sword, curiously this is a sword with a cross guard, this is what he used to defeat many barbarians that attacked his people. Perhaps this is the reason Kylo built such an exotic lightsaber, he was used to fighting with a similar sword before being turned into a Sith.


Wredd with a Crossguard Sword


After the Sith destroyed all life on his world and Wredd was forced into becoming one of them:


“Afterwards, the Lord forced him to wear a mask all the time to ensure his obedience, temper his weakness, and to teach him hatred.”


When Wredd captures Yalta Val (Luke) he forces him to wear a similar mask which he endures for all his time in captivity.


“He admitted that he had kept the real Yalta Val prisoner within his mask with the hope of turning him to the dark side.”


Yalta Val
Yalta Val as a Prisoner


Could this be related to the rumors of Luke being kind of crazy? Perhaps wearing this mask for a while started to make him seem a little insane. Maybe it’s also related to the rumors of Luke being a cyborg, perhaps we just see him wearing this robotic mask for a while?


Talking about cyborgs, in the comics, during the fight where Wredd (Kylo) seriously injures Jao (Finn), one of Wredd’s eyes gets seriously injured as well, forcing him to wear a cyborg like mask after that.

“After escaping from the Carreras communications array, Darth Wredd returned to his secret base on Mala. After attending to his eye injury, Wredd changed into a black suit of armor, reminiscent of the late Sith Lord Darth Vader’s armor, which also featured a mask that hid his blinded right eye.”



What if the cyborg concept art was about Kylo after all? He might get injured at some point during this movie or the next and then he’ll have a cyborg like appearance?


I mentioned before that at some point during the middle of the first story arc, all our heroes are captured by Wredd (Kylo). Unlike the rumors, in the comics the one being interrogated is Jao (Finn) instead of Ania (Rey). Wredd senses the potential in Jao and wants him to become his disciple. He hates the One Sith (First Order) but he wants to start his own faction following the rule of two. Later in the story Jao mentions the following when talking about Wredd:




Could this be the reason why Kylo admires Vader and presumably has his mask? He sees him and Palpatine as the epitome of Sith rule and wants to restore that?


Anyway, after finishing the story, one realizes that Wredd’s primary goal and motivation is no other than destroying the Sith (including himself). The purpose of his whole plan was orchestrating a battle in which he gets the good guys to help him destroy the entire One Sith order. After he accomplishes this he realizes there is still one Sith left so he taunts Jao into killing him. He refuses but Ania gets the job done.
Could Kylo share this motivation as well? It is rumored that the new republic and the first order are at peace at the beginning of the movie. Perhaps Kylo starts a war on purpose with the intention of destroying the First Order?


I don’t know how much of Wredd will be used for Kylo but to be honest it sounds like a really compelling character and story.

  • June 18, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    I remember over a year ago JJ and/or Disney saying something to the effect of “Episode 7 will utilize an unprecedented mis-information campaign”. I think this may be what they meant. Could be wrong, but we’ll see!

    • June 18, 2015 at 7:51 pm

      The whole Luke is in the movie for 5 seconds rumor seems like crazy misinformation. I can’t believe so many people bought it.

      • June 19, 2015 at 12:02 am

        Want to put money on that bet?

        If the majoirty is correct in thinking that Luke will only appear briefly, promise to quit bashing the prequels and focus your hate on Episode VII. Please and thank you.

        • June 19, 2015 at 7:55 pm

          I don’t bash the prequels. I thought they were alright.

    • June 18, 2015 at 9:00 pm

      There was never any such official statement from their camp at all whatsoever. I don’t doubt that there is some misdirection going on, but not per the usual JJ enterprise because he isn’t the final say of anything in this movie, he is a hired hand.

      • June 18, 2015 at 9:38 pm

        “Despite Abrams admitting that some Star Wars: Episode 7 spoilers are true, we still don’t really know what is what. Even with things coming from supposed “trusted sources”, Abrams has admitted to using a disinformation campaign, so people who would be in the position to know are leaking things that aren’t true to throw people off the course. So, even as we get confirmation that, yes, some of the spoilers are true, some of them are still not true. And, maybe J.J. Abrams is lying about them being true to completely throw us off the scent. And, now we don’t know whether we’re coming or going.

        • June 18, 2015 at 10:07 pm

          I repeat, there has been no such official statement from Abrams’ camp that there’s any deliberate disinformation campaign. Thanks for quoting an unofficial source that makes this claim without *gasp* sourcing it.

          The article is correct that Abrams never told us what leaks are real or not, it fails to mention that the trailers and other official information confirmed a lot of things.

          • June 18, 2015 at 11:50 pm

            No reason to be arrogant about it. What’s your proof that he never said it? Do you have any facts, Mr. Anonymous?

          • June 19, 2015 at 12:04 am

            I’m not being arrogant, he never said it. There is no source quoting him saying this.

            The burden of proof is on the person making a claim not the person questioning it, jackass.

            Lrn2skeptic. Evidence leads to a conclusion not the other way around.

          • June 19, 2015 at 12:12 am

            Love ya buddy!

          • June 19, 2015 at 1:31 am

            I’ve read that Mark Hamill was the narrator voice during the screenplay readthrough in which the first famous cast photo was taken. As far as I know a main character won’t be the narrator because it confuses the reading as narration and dialog overlap.
            I don’t know why people things this is so weird. Not saying Luke is only in the end (we see him in the trailer in Jakkooine), but I think there’s a big possibility this is Harrison’s movie as seems largely accepted he’s gonna die in this one. Why not to keep Luke for the next one?

  • June 18, 2015 at 8:09 pm

    I would certainly hope JJ is better than ripping off a comic.

    • June 18, 2015 at 9:08 pm

      Ya because JJ’s career really points in that direction. Screenwriter on Armageddon, Gone Fishing, director of sequels and other purely derivative crap.

      How anyone believes this guy is like *the* man to do anything but rip off—err excuse me “imitate” actual creatives is beyond me. This is the guy responsible for hacks like Damon Libdleof, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman having careers. I’ll give you a hint of the height of their success: Bayformers.

      • June 19, 2015 at 1:24 am

        This is true. However, he has Kasdan and *crosses fingers* maybe a few other smart people out there to help. Maybe Arndt laid some creative ground work.

        If JJ doesn’t realize this movie needs more than an Orci “Star Trek” “Fury Road” laziness, if he thinks it just needs to be a “fun ride” then we’re fucked.

        Also, George Lucas relied very heavily on others for the success of Star Wars (OT)- his own drafts and dialogues were terrible.

        If JJ is open to others suggestions, if he realizes he sorta sucks, then things might work out.

        • June 19, 2015 at 3:29 am

          Disney has Kasdan. Abrams has nothing to do with that connection. I’m only saying, give credit where it is due.

          • June 21, 2015 at 1:00 am

            Don’t be pedantic.

      • June 19, 2015 at 2:56 am

        Nice to see you back @Itsnotimportant!

      • June 20, 2015 at 6:09 am

        George Lucas ripped off Kurosawa and Flash Gordon/Buck Rogers.


        This whole ‘originality’ thing is a false god.

    • June 18, 2015 at 11:27 pm

      No, he’s not.

    • June 19, 2015 at 4:58 pm

      You should realize a bunch of scenes in the OT was ripped from Buck Rogers comics panels.

  • June 18, 2015 at 8:15 pm

    I feel like I just read The Force Awakens graphic novel.

  • June 18, 2015 at 8:18 pm


  • June 18, 2015 at 8:29 pm

    Here’s another possibility… maybe MakingStarWars and the other rumor peddlers are big fat liars and this comic book is some of their “source material”.

    • June 18, 2015 at 9:21 pm

      That would make sense if the comic fit the rumors more than what we already know for sure from the trailers and other material.

      Both stories are about a young girl who lives a a humble life as a scavenger on a remote desert planet until she finds a lightsaber and teams up with an imperial deserter.

      Those aren’t rumors, that basic premise has been confirmed in multiple ways.

      Even JJ has admitted some of the leaks are accurate.

      Apart from other sources Lucas has recognized as inspiration, the original Star Wars totally ripped off Jack Kirby. Google Mark Moonrider and Darkseid.

      Star Wars has always been derivative of other things, it shouldn’t even be shocking that JJ Abrams take is derivative of itself.

      • June 18, 2015 at 9:43 pm

        The Moonrider/Darkseid stories aren’t nearly as similar as this.

        • June 18, 2015 at 9:53 pm

          If it were any more similar Lucas would have been successfully sued a long time ago.

          That’s the beautiful thing about having thousands of stories you own to borrow from, it’s perfectly legal to rip off as much of it as you want.

  • June 18, 2015 at 8:31 pm

    Damn that’s real really close to what we save heard. This is either spot on for the movie or complete misdirection.

  • June 18, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    Very interesting article Aglarion;yeah Luke being in one scene doesn`t add up – what was the point of the script re-writes? – to give the big 3 one last adventure before the newbies take over.

  • June 18, 2015 at 9:08 pm

    Absurd that TFA would be a remake of the first half hour of ANH and Ania Solo’s comic.
    You don’t build a multi-billion dollar franchise around such laziness!

    • June 18, 2015 at 9:26 pm

      You have no idea what you’re talking about. That’s exactly how you build successful products for the masses. You give them something they like, familiar enough to peak their interest and different enough that they think it’s something new.

      Star Wars was never ever ever ever completely original it was smart business. Had everything to do with capitalizing on other people’s ideas.

    • June 18, 2015 at 9:48 pm

      You’re absolutely right, everyone knows the key to a successful space opera franchise is ripping off Jack Kirby and throwing in some other elements.

      Or have you never heard of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World, and The New Gods? It’s a story about a guy named Mark Moonrider who has special powers from “the source” and his evil father Darkseid who lives on a completely metal planet that looks a lot like the Death Star, and that’s just the surface similarities. Lucas’ Star Wars was quite different before he met Jack Kirby and heard about The New Gods.

      Clearly you’ve gone passed successful to milking the franchise dry when you’re just ripping off the series itself to create new stories.

  • June 18, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    The first STAR WARS was original in how it mashed all these disparate influences together and painted a dash of space fantasy over it.
    The comic book story here though…I’d thought they would be more creative than using a comic as the template for TFA. They could imagine ANYTHING and give it a SW spin and now it all sounds tired and trite. Except Kylo fighting both sides although that too is kind of what the prequels did with Palpatine

    • June 19, 2015 at 1:19 am

      Marvel used Superhero comics for the basis of all of their movies…

      Not too far of a stretch to think that a company owned by Disney would start to use comics as inspiration for another giant as big as Star Wars.

  • June 18, 2015 at 9:54 pm

    This was all too familiar! This is definitely where they got the plot for TFA from! Great info, great job!

  • June 18, 2015 at 9:55 pm

    This is by far the most intelligent speculation on The Force Awakens I have read to date!

  • June 18, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Irony: A filmmaker known for poorly imitating other filmmakers makes a Star Wars and people can’t believe it’s as derivative as possible.

  • June 18, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    Wow. If this is indeed the rough plot of TFA, I’m not even pissed about knowing this. Great article, sounds like an incredible story.

  • June 18, 2015 at 11:15 pm

    Originality has its merits. But it has been long stated that the old EU is open and available for mining. As long as the final product is compelling and entertaining, I’m all in. Its not always a good thing to be completely original (if anything really is). I’d take a story inspired by bits and pieces of existing material over an original story if the Frankenstein product is more entertaining and compelling than what they could have drummed up out of nothing.

  • June 18, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    I really don’t come here for Legends news, I come here for Episode 7 news.

    • June 18, 2015 at 11:41 pm

      Well, other than what may be the entire plot of the actual film, what other “news” were you looking for about it?

      • June 19, 2015 at 3:52 am

        Oh please. Ff course this isn’t the plot of the movie, honey.

        • June 19, 2015 at 2:31 pm

          We’ll find out in December, babycakes!

  • June 18, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    First of all, good detective work!

    Secondly, all mythic archetypes are patently derivative. Neighboring cultures even borrow origin myths from one another to retell them from their own perspective. The Bible story of Noah has striking parallels to Ut-Napishtim’s plight in the Epic of Gilgamesh. The argument of which came first is irrelevant in this case- the point is, stories like this survive because they can be retold in countless new and interesting ways.

    I have no problem with them mining the old EU. I say whatever it takes to make this a fantastic movie and carry the mythology forward.
    Flame suit… ON!!!

    • June 18, 2015 at 11:39 pm

      I’d also like to add that SW has always been a melting pot of ideas culled from different cultural sources (as others on this post have already pointed out). C3PO is quite obviously the mechanical “Maria/Hel” from the silent film Metropolis. The plot line of a new hope is lifted from Kirusowa’s Hidden Fortress, The Wizard of Oz, and others (which, themselves, have elements borrowed from Homer’s Odyssey).

      The people who think films are made using completely unique and novel ideas are deluding themselves. There is nothing new under the Sun; just variations on a theme.

      • June 19, 2015 at 4:59 pm

        Well said.

        People are in denial.

  • June 18, 2015 at 11:56 pm

    I don’t really mind them mining “old” EU, but Star Wars Legacy: Vol. 2 isn’t exactly old. It began in March 2013 and didn’t finish until it was basically forced to because Star Wars comic book rights shifted back to Marvel near the end of August 2014.

    It seems supremely suspicious to me that they would borrow so heavily from a nearly brand new source. It is for that reason alone I wonder a bit if we’re all not being had.

    • June 19, 2015 at 2:13 am

      We were wondering that same thing at this time last year.

  • June 18, 2015 at 11:59 pm

    Well they had 6 months to rewrite the whole story from scratch basically so it doesn’t surprise that they used an existing story and tinkered with it.

    It still seems super odd though. As long as the end result is good, it’s all good.

  • June 19, 2015 at 12:04 am

    Ultimate Spoiler: DON’T READ IF YOU WANT TO WAIT 6 MONTHS – We know that Rey is a twin-sister but to whom? Remember the new parallel of Ben Kenobi’s statement HE IS MORE MACHINE THAN MAN can be something else different than ANH – who is in that black cloak at movie’s end of TFA surrounded by new stormtroopers as Rey and Finn and light-side celebrate (but what as we look at today’s presidential candidates)! Women’ s struggle to eliminate the Star Wars fanboy!? Why did Star Wars go to Disney, a company mostly making money on women and girls? IT IS A DECEMBER CHICK-FLICK TWIST!

    • June 19, 2015 at 12:10 am

      Uh actually we don’t know anything about Rey’s family at all, let alone her being a twin. Also maybe lrn2english better because the rest of your comment makes no sense.

    • June 19, 2015 at 12:21 am

      Dammit Hillary. More like Darth Clinton am I right???

  • June 19, 2015 at 12:37 am

    The saber Wredd is holding out in the pic above reminds me a lot of the “Wampa saber” design from the leaked concept art!

  • June 19, 2015 at 1:10 am

    So they tell us that most of the EU isn’t canon, but then give us a canon story that was mostly derived from an EU comic.. JJ & Co better give credit & cash to the couple who came up with SWLegacyVol2.

    I came across the comic last year and remember how eerily similar it was to rumors of TFA. Now I’m almost certain they came to this comic after the 1st writer for TFA dropped out. It’s a good story just give the original writers the fkn credit.

      Exactly. If they would simply do that I’d be satisfied. It’s progress

      Can’t blame JJ, dear. Disney is the monster, here. Besides, JJ isn’t the writer for TFA, it’s Lawrence Kasdan.

    So basically we know nothing about the movie

    Now which comicbook can we find the plot for EP VIII?

    Well they did say that the former EU-now-Legends stuff was ripe for mining. I do hope there’s a bit where Kylo attempts to go at Luke only to confirm that Luke is wayyy out of his league. Reminds me of when Ventress tried to swing at Yoda on Toydaria in the CW cartoon. Yoda punked her so bad- and SMILED about it haha.

    I think that would be really funny if the plot details we currently have are nothing more than an elaborate hoax by Disney.

    Although, I do believe that some of the information that is out there is correct. But after seeing this I really feel like that there is something amiss going on

    Why was my comment from earlier today deleted? It had 11 likes last time I checked. What’s the purpose of deleting it?

      oh, it’s back now. I wonder what happened.

    Ha! I was just telling someone about how Dark Horse stopped promoting this volume of Legacy pretty much as soon as the Disney acquisition happened.

    I have been to several comic cons with official Dark Horse Comics panels talking about Star Wars Legacy among others and right before the Disney acquisition there was lots of involvement from Lucasfilm on what they could and could not do with the storyline and characters. I doubt they would have allowed them to create a story so close to TFA.

    “He admitted that he had kept the real Yalta Val prisoner within his mask with the hope of turning him to the dark side …. Could this be related to the rumors of Luke being kind of crazy? Perhaps wearing this mask for a while started to make him seem a little insane.”

    This would certainly make sense if you think back to the early artwork of a masked person taunting Rey from behind her- that could definitely be Luke in this case!

    I stopped reading Legacy after I began to hear about the movie plot.

    Its just sitting in my comic reader on my iPad.
