Star Wars Episode 7 has slowly been releasing teasers to fans - first we saw the X-Wing, then a robotic hand, and yesterday, pictures emerged of the Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing side by side.

And yet, for all this information, we still don't know a great deal about the Star Wars Episode 7 plot.

But there are rumors - and so, without claiming any of this to be the final truth about what we will see in J.J. Abrams Star Wars 7, let's run through everything we know so far:

The Inquisitor Hunting Luke Skywalker?

The Inquisitor, the main villain in Star Wars 7?

It seems near certain now that the main villain in Star Wars Episode 7 will be this robotic Sith Inquisitor. When J.J. Abrams first released his robotic hand photo, many had guessed that it was hinting at Luke's hand, which he lost at the end of The Empire Strikes Back.

In fact, it now seems more than likely that it was the hand of this guy, a with inquisitor who we may see sent on missions by Darth Vader in flashbacks, and who may be on the trail of Jedi recluse Luke Skywalker

Leia & Han Solo's Children

The other main rumor for the Star Wars Episode 7 plot concerns the children of Han & Leia Solo, and Lando Calrissian - who are expected to play leading parts in the movie.

And if this is the case - Star Wars Episode 7 could take a darker turn than fans had anticipated.

So far J.J. Abrams seems to be picking and choosing freely from the Star Wars Expanded Universe - if he likes something, he'll include it, and if not, not. But will he choose this dark, ominous storyline for Han Solo's kids, in particular Jacen Solo?

Jacen Solo, twin brother of Jaina Solo and Han Solo's eldest son, is a powerful Jedi with skills inherited from his mother's side of the family. But as he learns the ways of the Jedi, little by little he becomes more reckless, and is drawn towards the dark side of the Force.

Eventually, when he is training his cousin Ben Skywalker, he is discovered to be corrupting the young boy by Luke Skywalker's new wife, the ex-smuggler Mara Jade. After a confrontation, Mara Jade battles her nephew, and Jacen kills her, he goes on to become the Sith Lord Darth Caedus.

It is a story of betrayal and corruption, but is it a likely plot for [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158), or one the movies that will follow it? Will Jacen Solo even feature in the movie? Have your say below the line!
