Last week Star Wars Episode 7 had a massive leak - a huge amount of concept art was revealed onto the internet, giving fans a glimpse into what the movie might hold in store. So what did we learn?

Star Wars 7 LEAKED Concept Art

In the last article, we looked at the start of the movie, and the events that set the new Star Wars trilogy into action - this time, however, we will look more closely at some of the more hard to pin down elements of Star Wars 7.

The Inquisitor

First up, the man who is expected to be the big bad of [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) - the Inquisitor. We were given several images on this guy in the concept art leak, although ultimately, we have more question than answers.

Can the Inquisitor turn Kira to the Dark Side?

Now, there are two big rumors about "The Inquisitor". The first is that after finding Luke's first lightsaber (Obi-Wan's lightsaber, really) and setting off on her mission to find Luke, Daisy Ridley's character Kira comes across the Inquisitor, and is turned to the dark side.

The Inquisitor is known to have something of a thing for relics of the first Star Wars trilogy, as we know by the pictures showing him looking intently at Darth Vader's shattered helmet.

Previous rumors had Adam Driver's character as a man obsessed with Sith relics - and a potential Sith himself. But then there was that photo that seemed to show him in the Rebel pilot uniform, which seemed to contradict this.

But the question remains: why would the Inquisitor be looking for Obi-Wan's lightsaber? This leads us to the second rumor about him.

The Inquisitor *is* Luke Skywalker.

Could it be that Daisy Ridley is turned to the dark side after meeting Luke, himself turned to a SIth? At first, these rumors seemed ridiculous, but then there is this picture, of Kira entering a darkened room (perhaps on Luke's hideaway of Skellig, and meeting a hooded figure) Could Kira have found Luke here?

Chrome Stormtroopers

One of the other big questions hanging over Star Wars Episode 7 involves the iconic agents of the Empire, the Stormtroopers. Recent reports claimed to have seen Han Solo in Stormtrooper gear, on another epic mission with Chewbacca. If you see the leaked pictures, you can see a glimpse of a Stormtrooper, doing battle behind a large heap on rubble.

The big question, though, is about the Chrome Stormtrooper seen in the concept art leak. From the curve of the character's breastplate, some fans are speculating that this could be a female character. Could it be Lupita Nyong'o's character? Is this a new look for *all* stormtrooper's, or does this character's cloak and armor indicate that they are a higher rank?

Chewbacca's Bionic Hand

The last aspect of the Star Wars 7 concept art dump that we will speculate about it - what has happened to Chewie's hand?

Star Wars has always had a fondness to getting rid of character's limbs. Luke lost his hand, Ponda Baba had his arm chopped off in Mos Eisley's Cantina and Anakin and Count Dooku's exchanged limbs in Epsiode 1-3, to name just a few.

So has Chewbacca now joined the legions of Star Wars Universe amputees? Well, according to this image, it looks like he might have. However, the reports that confirmed Han Solo and Chewie's Stormtrooper-battling adventure, also said they saw Chewbacca with *all* his arms attached. Does that mean we will see the wookie lose a hand in [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158)?

What do you think? Is Luke the Inquisitor? Who is the Chrome Stormtrooper, and what happened to Chewbacca's hand? Write in with all your own thoughts and speculation below the line!
