It’s been a busy day for Star Wars Episode VII rumours, and we’ve rounded up the best for you right here. The following can all be considered major spoilers though, so you may want to stop reading now!
First up is news on the movie’s villains. According to Latino-Review, Luke Skywalker has been a captive of a group called The Inquisitors since shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi. They’re defenders of the Sith Order who have been around for a very long time, and flashbacks will apparently reveal their connections to both a young Princess Leia (played by Carrie Fisher’s biological daughter, Billie Lourd) and…Darth Vader!
That’s right, the villain is set to make a brief return in Star Wars Episode VII, but the main villain is described by Badass
Indie Revolver meanwhile claim that this is concept art of the bad guy described above:
It does appear as if this unnamed bad guy is part human though and he apparently wields a red lightsaber. What he’s doing with Darth Vader’s destroyed helmet remains to be seen of course.
Also from Badass Digest comes the news that Han Solo and Chewbacca will be piloting an old Imperial Super Star Destroyer in Star Wars Episode VII. The Millennium Falcon is now supposedly in the hands of the character played by Oscar Isaac, who is described as the Lando Calrissian of this movie, cape and all.
Also from Indie Revolver is this concept art of Han Solo with his trusty DL-44 blaster:
So, what do you guys think? J.J. Abrams is well-known for being extremely secretive, and Disney have asked none of the sites to take down the “leaked” concept art, so something doesn’t quite sit right here. It all sounds and looks great though, but we may be waiting until next December to find out if any of this is for real!
