If there is one thing that internet seems to go crazy for these days, it’s any scrap of information that can be gathered about J.J. Abrams new Star Wars movie. Well, fans are in luck because over the past couple of days some reasonably big Star Wars Episode VII details have surfaced. Be warned, this article will contain minor SPOILERS, so please, stop reading if you don’t want to have anything potentially spoiled for you.
First up, Harrison Ford is expected to be returning back to the set after his injury on the set a little while back. Ford will surely be busy once he returns since they have a lot of catching up to do in terms of their shooting schedule. Which means (bad segue ahead) he’ll need to be putting on his costumes, and it just so happens we might now know what a couple of those look like.
Thanks to Indie Revolver, a couple of images have surfaced that show off alleged costumes Ford is expected to be wearing as everyone’s favorite scruffy looking nerf herder, Han Solo, in the upcoming Star Wars sequel. One of the photos very closely resembles what Han was wearing in the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back while the other boasts a fancy duster (long jacket) over what otherwise appears to be his classic look. So that’s exciting.
However, the much bigger potential news came through via Latino Review, who is known for breaking big news. They have a pretty good track record but definitely get a little ahead of themselves from time to time. So maybe take this with a grain of salt. According to their report, they now know who the main villains are going to be in Star Wars Episode VII. I must re-iterate, if you don’t want anything spoiled, STOP READING!
The report claims that The Inquisitors will be the main villains in the film. That seems to be nodding to a couple of different things in the expanded universe. First is the character The Inquisitor, who will be having a prominent role in the upcoming series Star Wars; Rebels, is a dark and brooding Jedi hunter that isn’t a Sith, but knows how to use the dark side of the Force. The other nod seems to be to a group called The Inquisitorious, who in the expanded universe were essentially high ranking dark side of the Force agents.
It should be noted that since Disney has taken of the Star Wars property, they have said that the expanded universe material isn’t cannon, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good well to draw from.
