Rumor – Two Possible Spoilers For Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Teaser TrailerWe recently gathered a couple of interesting tidbits from two of our readers, both of which are non-US residents that claim to know someone involved in foreign audio dubbing for the upcoming film.

 

Rumor #1:

I have a friend who’s an actor. He was approached by his agency and took part in a casting for dubbing of The Force Awakens. Obviously, he had to sign an NDA. The scene was blacked out and he could only see the dubbed character’s head. He was trying to get a dark character’s part.

He only saw a brief scene (again, it was a casting) but from what he saw, he told me that the dark character might, for the first time ever, switch sides to join the light side. He said that it might happen, but the intent wasn’t entirely clear. I’m sure they do those castings in the most confusing ways.

 

Rumor #2:

I know someone who works in the ****** media (dubbing) who assured me that there was indeed a scene with Yoda in The Force Awakens.

 

As always, take this along with your daily dose of salt, but if these rumors turn out to be true, it could mean big things for the sequel trilogy.

The Evil Three

Could one of the villains change allegiances in The Force Awakens? If so, who would it be? Captain Phasma? Kylo Ren? General Hux? Thematically, it seems more likely that of the three, Kylo Ren would be the most likely to turn, as he is definitely a Force user and the film’s most prominent villain.

 

We already have one trilogy devoted to a character’s descent into darkness and another devoted to his redemption. What we haven’t seen is an evil character turn to the light and then go on to be a true hero of the saga. This idea would also call back to the Legends story of Darth Revan (below), a Jedi who took a brief turn to the dark side before his eventual redemption back to the light. The fact that Kylo Ren’s costume is very similar to Revan’s has also long been noted by fans.

Revan

It should also be noted, however, that the marketing has focused on Kylo Ren as the main villain in the film. On top of that, he is still an antagonist in what is most likely the film’s climax on Starkiller Base. This doesn’t seem to lend much time for him to have a sudden change of heart. Still, it’s possible, but it seems more likely that if he switches his allegiance that it will happen in a later film.

 

force-ghost-yoda

As for the Yoda rumor, we have long heard rumors of his return to the saga, and his inclusion in the story would make a lot of sense in my opinion. One of our staff members was also told by a connection at one time to expect a Force ghost Yoda in the film. We know that Frank Oz recently returned briefly to the Star Wars universe to voice Yoda in a season 1 episode of Star Wars: Rebels.  He also stated that he would love to voice Yoda again in future Star Wars projects.

 

I think a return of Yoda would be fantastic. His appearance in the film could be so much more than fan service. The implications of Yoda having communicated with Luke for the past 30 years is staggering. Many speculate that Luke will be a Jedi of amazing power in TFA. In our recent reader poll, 44% said he will be wise and powerful like Yoda (the most popular answer), and 29% said he will basically be a Force god (second most popular answer).

 

How is this possible with only a short time of hands on Jedi training with Obi-Wan and Yoda? Well, holocrons aside, this ongoing one-on-one interaction between Luke and Yoda would enable us to see a Luke in TFA whose power is on par with and perhaps even exceeds the Jedi of old.
