‘Star Wars’ Rumor Patrol: ‘Episode 7′ Villains Revealed [Updated]

by

Star Wars Movies Sith Lords Star Wars Rumor Patrol: Episode 7 Villains Revealed [Updated]

[This article contains POTENTIAL SPOILERS for Star Wars: Episode VII.]

[UPDATE: A rumored image of an Episode VII villain has popped up online.]

What do we know for certain about the plot of Star Wars: Episode VII? [spoiler]Well, it picks up thirty years after the events in Return of the Jedi, and… that’s about it. However, we do have a growing stack of rumors about the storyline for director J.J. Abrams’ film – and today, we have yet another one to add to the pile.

What’s interesting about this one, however, is that it helps to explain where a lot of the previous claims about the movie – specifically, those concerning its villains – come from; thus, suggesting how these seemingly disparate puzzle pieces may go together. Again, though, the following is all RUMOR and speculation. It’s entirely possible that Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) – who rewrote the original script draft by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3, Catching Fire) – have something else altogether up their sleeve.

First things first: those old rumors indicating that Darth Vader will appear inEpisode VII resurfaced quite recently; the possible why and how behind his “return” – that’s been kept a mystery. Meanwhile, there’s also been talk over the past months about the film’s villains being “Jedi Hunters” – mercenaries who, naturally, have been hired to take down the Jedi – and who may be connected to The Inquisitor. The latter is voiced by Jason Isaacs featured in the upcoming canon animated show Star Wars Rebels (the first canon installment in Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars universe, no less).

Star Wars Rebels The Inquisitor Jason Isaacs Star Wars Rumor Patrol: Episode 7 Villains Revealed [Updated]

The most plausible Episode VII storyline that has been reported so far has the film’s young protagonists (Daisy Ridley and John Boyega) undertaking a journey to find Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who has been missing for many years by the time the movie begins. Latino Review is claiming to have insider knowledge of what happens when Ridley and Boyega (who’s rumored to be a stormtrooper when the movie begins) catch up with the older Luke:

  • Luke reveals to Ridley and Boyega that the Inquisitors – who are indeed actively hunting down any Jedi Masters or Jedi-in-training when Episode VII takes place – are very much connected to the Sith.
  • This prompts a flashback, showing Darth Vader recruiting the very first Inquisitors. That sequence could also (somehow) incorporate a very young Leia, who rumor has it will be played by Carrie Fisher’s biological daughter Billie Lourd.
  • At some point, Boyega’s former boss/commanding officer (Gwendoline Christie) catches up to the young heroes and reveals her own connection to the Force – possibly being a member of the Inquisitor organization, whose ranks may also include the characters played by Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver.

UPDATE: Indie Revolver (WARNING: The linked page contains what may be a BIG SPOILER), which earlier today posted pics of the redesigned stormtrooper helmet in Episode VII, has posted what is apparently an image of the film’s main villain, along with more details on their history with the Sith.

Now, all of this does arguably make sense, when you break it down:

  • It explains why Star Wars Rebels will be the starting point for the new canon of the continuing Star Wars universe.
  • By establishing that the Inquisitors have been around for upwards of 50 years before Episode VII takes place, Rebels would help to ease the transition into them becoming the primary antagonists in the new Star Wars live-action film trilogy.
  • The existence of non-Sith Dark Force adds a welcome layer of complexity to the Light Side/Dark Side dynamic.
  • Thanks to the presence of the Inquisitors, the Star Wars franchise will henceforth have a way to circumvent the “Rule of Two” that dictates only two Sith will exist at once (something Yoda references in Episode I, which makes it canon) – in the sense that now several Dark Force users can be around at once.

It’s entirely possible that most of the aforementioned claims (if not all of them) are based largely on misinformation – and thus, that the actual Episode VII storyline is something else together. Still, if this is the route that Abrams is taking with his Star Wars installment, then it’s certainly an intriguing direction – one that could indeed successfully launch a new era of Star Wars, like Abrams did with Star Trek (albeit, byvery different plot mechanics).

Star Wars Episode VII’s Villains Revealed!

UPDATE! Down at the bottom of the page is a new image the ballers at IndieRevolver has of the villain I’m about to spoil for you below. Way at the bottom. Don’t go there if you don’t want to see it.

No one suspects the Spanish…er…Latino Review Inquisition!

Today instead of just a single, long S7ARWARS(.com) column post, we’re going to be making our own little trilogy of posts.

First, we cleared up the Stormtrooper situation. Now, we’ll reveal something about Episode VII that made my jaw literally drop when I heard it, and this evening,I’ll drop a normal ramble-filled column about how EVERYTHING FITS TOGETHER NOW.

Ok? Let’s have some fun. SPOILERS ahead, all day.

[spoiler]To catch you up on what we think we know about Episode VII’s plot thus far: Luke’s lightsaber (and maybe hand but probably not) crash lands on a planet leading Daisy Ridley and John Boyega on a search for Luke, which leads them to Han and Chewie, who aren’t in the Millennium Falcon because Oscar Isaacs has it. The party is looking for Luke who has been MIA since Jedi. But Luke isn’t hiding, Luke is a captive.

Let’s push our understanding past the first act and into the second act of the story.

What we’ve been circling around are the villains of the piece, occasionally coming up with buzzing from the set about bounty hunters or “Sith Witches,” and those aren’t entirely inaccurate, but the truth is much more…

…INQUISITIVE.

The Inquisitors are the villains of Star Wars: Episode VII and the name of the main villain in Star Wars: Rebels. They seem to be loosly based on the now-deleted Expanded Universe Inquistors (Click here for that background) mixed with the hardended Sith look of Rebels’ villain. The Inquisitors are defenders of the Sith Order and they’ve been around for a long time. Just how long is what turnsEpisode VII’s story on it’s head.

 

GET OUT NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT THE BIG SPOILER.

Ok?

Onward.

When our hero(es) find Luke and the Inquisitors are revealed, Luke’s explanation on the history of this order is going to trigger a flashback to explain that the Inquisitors have been tied into the Sith all along.

Remember when we broke Billie Lourd’s casting (Lourd is the biological daughter of Carrie Fisher)? That’s not so she can play a Solo kid, it’s so she can play a much younger Princess Leia than we’ve ever seen before in this flashback.

This Lourd WILL be a ROYAL! HAAHAHAHAHA!

I make myself laugh, like, all the time.

But, a young Princess Leia is not all this flashback reveals…

The Inquisitors will be seen serving Darth Vader in flashback.

 

Yes, Darth Vader will be on screen, briefly, in Star Wars: Episode VII. We’re not done with the dark prince of the Sith quite yet.

That’s all for now, but it’s now exceedingly clear that the Sequel Trilogy requires a retroactive continuity adjustment to the other two trilogies and Rebels is going to end up being much, much more important than we anticipated.

 

More on Rebels and the big picture this evening for your normally scheduled S7AR WARS column!

 

THE UPDATE:

I hear, but cannot confirm, that some layoffs in the production run might be causing some of these unexpected leaks of actual content to hit the net. If you’ve already been fired, you can’t be fired again, I guess? Either way, IndieRevolver seems to be tapped into these people, because they have a concept art photo of the “Sith Inquisitor,” a half cyborg nightmare creature, looking at the broken helmet of Darth Vader.[/spoiler]

Indie Revolver EXCLUSIVE: No One Expects the Sith Inquisition

By: Jay P. Carlson

A lot of information and images related to Star Wars: Episode VII are coming to light this week, and we’ve got just one more treat for you to enjoy over the weekend. We’re headed into definite spoiler territory now, so be warned – if you don’t want to know, now’s your chance to turn back!

If you haven’t yet, please head over to Latino Review and read their terrific writeup on the known plot points of the upcoming Star Wars sequel. There’s a lot of connective tissue (and wonderful surprises) there which make sense of a lot of what we’re seeing these days and over the coming weeks.

[spoiler]It’s true that the main villain of Episode VII is a Sith Inquisitor. He’s tall and thin and terrifyingly creepy, with glowing red eyes to match his red lightsaber. He’s got some robotic upgrades, like Vader – but no mask. The cybernetic bits weave in and out of him. He’s got a human upper lip, a steel jaw… and the robotic hand that JJ Abrams posted an image of.BuxQHkXCAAE4vXI

 

As LR mentioned, we’ll see flashbacks in this movie which will show us Princess Leia as a young girl and Vader’s involvement with the Sith during his prime. This inquisitor has a fascination Vader through the movie’s timeline as well though – just look how he stares at Vader’s shattered helmet in this image:

What use do you think the Sith might make of Vader’s decrepit armor after all these years? Might they clone him from his cells? Is this a second discarded set of armor, or a burnt shell from Luke’s funeral pyre? Reply below and let us know your thoughts.
[/spoiler] What a great time to be a fan of Star Wars. May the force be with you!

Quote from Gwendoline about Star Wars ‘Snipers’

‘STAR WARS’ ACTORS KEEP MUM IN VENICE

The first rule of Venice is, you don’t talk about “Star Wars.”

Cast members of the forthcoming “Episode VII” who are in the Italian city for the Venice Film Festival are keeping mum about details of the ultra-anticipated movie.

 

British actress Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth in “Game of Thrones” and Commander Lyme in two “Hunger Games” movies, joked at a Vanity Fair-sponsored party that “Star Wars” producers had gone to extraordinary lengths to maintain secrecy.

“There’s snipers trained on us right now,” she said at an event to celebrate a collaboration between celebrity photographer Rankin and Johnnie Walker whiskey aimed at capturing rising entertainment stars.

‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘2 Broke Girls,’ ‘Silicon Valley’ Stars Converge at ‘Unscreened Summer Series’

By Jeff Sneider
August 22, 2014

Premiere Of HBO's "Game Of Thrones" Season 3 - After Party

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, Beth Behrs and Thomas Middleditch are among the actors participating

 

“Game of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is among the writers who will participate in a special summer iteration of Haven Entertainment and Firefly Theater & Films’s popular “Unscreened” series, TheWrap has learned.

 

The “Unscreened Summer Series” will feature staged readings of five new plays that will feature cast members such as Coster-Waldau and his “Game of Thrones” co-star Gwendoline Christie, who is currently filming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” plus major TV stars Beth Behrs (“2 Broke Girls”) and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”), as well as Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”), Michael Stahl-David (“Cloverfield”), Adelaide Clemens and Eliza Coupe.

 

The inaugural class of writers for the “Unscreened Summer Series” are Coster-Waldau & JP Derrick, Harris Danow (“The Newsroom”), Celine Geiger (“The Lying Game”), Justin Sternberg (“The Paul Reiser Show”) and Jordan & Justin Shipley.

 

Directors include Danow, Logan Kibens and “Unscreened” alums Daria Polatin (“Weeds”), Will Greenberg (“Halt and Catch Fire”), and Susanna Fogel (“Life Partners”).

 

“Unscreened” was created by Haven Entertainment’s Jordana Mollick and Firefly Theater & Films’s Steven Klein in order to give film and TV writers the chance to see their visions fully realized at a pace and depth of collaboration that only theater can accommodate and to work closely with the type of established actors that the writers and directors are regularly meeting via their day jobs.

 

“The Summer Reading Series is an exciting way to expand the community of talented writers, directors, and actors that Unscreened has built over the years, while continuing to harness collaborations with our alumni,” Mollick and Klein said in a joint statement.

 

The “Unscreened Summer Series” will take place on the weekend of Sept. 5-7 at 8 p.m. at the Lillian Theater in Hollywood. Tickets are available online here www.unscreenedla.com or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at (800) 838-3006.

 

Several of the short plays created for ”Unscreened” in 2011, 2012, and 2013 have led to further projects, most notably – ”Life Partners” by Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz, which was adapted into a feature film starring Meester, Gillian Jacobs, and Adam Brody. The movie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April and will be released this fall by Magnolia Pictures; “T*TS” by Leslye Headland, which is being workshopped by Second Stage into a full-length play; Beth Schacter’s ”Turned Out,” which is being developed into a feature; and Corinne Kingsbury’s play “His Girl,” which is now being developed with Anonymous Content and “Unscreened” into a cable TV show.

 

Haven’s partners are Mauricio Betancur, Kevin Mann, Rachel Miller and Jesse Hara. “Unscreened” co-founder Jordana Mollick and Brendan Bragg, formerly of Black Sheep Entertainment, joined the company as partners in 2013. Haven recently produced the EDM documentary “Under the Electric Sky,” which Focus released this summer after acquiring the film at Sundance earlier this year.

Did Gwendoline Take Over Benedict Cumberbatch’s Star Wars Episode VII Role?

The Game of Throne actress has been speaking out on the big screen part

 

Forget the return of Harrison Ford or Adam Driver’s rumoured villain, the casting for Star Wars: Episode VII we’re most excited for is Gwendoline Christie. With no official word yet on exactly who the Game of Thrones favourite will be playing, some very interesting new rumours have been doing the rounds.

53d622358dda7

Plot leaks for JJ Abrams’ hugely secretive movie have been coming thick and fast over the past couple of weeks. Badass Digest recently claimed Brit up and comers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley are playing the leads in the new chapter, with the pair on a quest to find Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, who has been MIA since the events of Return of the Jedi.

 

A fresh rumour from the site though puts Gwendoline as an Imperial officer or even a Sith, trying to hunt down Boyega’s Stormtrooper after he sets off on his mission.

 

The fact that Gwendoline has allegedly been spotted training with a lightsaber points to a possible Sith role (those sword-fighting skills on GoT should come in handy if this is the case).

 

Even more interestingly though, the site claims Christie’s part is thought to have been gender swapped during re-drafts of the script, with none other than Benedict Cumberbatch originally linked to the part.

 

Benedict shot down rumours he’s teaming up with his Star Trek: Into Darkness director Abrams again for Star Wars at Oz Comic Con back in April.

 

According to the entertainment site The Iris, which was live-tweeting from the event, Benedict told the audience “I would’ve liked a part in JJ’s [Abrams] new Star Wars but it won’t happen sadly.”

 

While this is all a lot of speculation, Gwendoline did tease her big screen adventure at Comic Con over the weekend, telling fans that she feels “incredibly lucky” to land the role.

 

“That was a real, real dream come true,” she told Access Hollywood. “That was like nothing you ever imagined. It’s so burnt into our minds. It’s burnt into my mind. I was shown those movies when I was a tiny little girl and then, to be a part of that thing that you held in such high regard, that’s been your escapism and your love and your entertainment and it’s been not just yours but everyone around you, I’m incredibly lucky. And it’s a lot of fun.”

 

While we don’t know for sure yet who Gwen will be playing, she teased that her character won’t stray too far from the action woman style of her GoT role: “Brienne of Tarth may well continue to kick ass,” she revealed.

Personally I think this sounds like a rumor but who knows?
