The Spoilers Awaken!!!!!
Holy freaking crap guys! Some major intense
spoilers/rumors have just hit the internet! (Insert blaring alarm sirens here!) What I am about to tell you may excite you or frighten you. Apparently, an employee from Lucasfilm has leaked information regarding Episode VII to a Chan user. In turn, the Chan user then uploaded the rumors to a Reddit. SoBE WARNED NOW! POTENTIALLY MAJOR EPISODE VII SPOILERS LIE AHEAD!!!!
That's it, I've done everything I can to warn you ofPOTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD.
Proceed at your own risk!
Part 1: The Title - "The Force Awakens"
The actual film's title plays a bigger role in the movie than what we might think. Obviously, we can infer that the Force has been dormant (hence the name). But why or for what reason has the Force gone to sleep? The leaks explain that the very nature of the Force is changing. The Force, by itself, is seemingly increasing in its own power. Also, people who are "Force Sensitive", are discovering their connection to it for the first time. This new tremor in the Force causes John Boyega's, Daisy Ridley's, and possibly other characters to realize their power.
Part 3: Luke Skywalker's Role
This is where the leaks start to get a lot more interesting. It has been safely assumed that Luke is playing a similar role to Obi-Wan in this new trilogy. That seems to be the case with these spoilers. Contrary to popular speculation regarding Luke, he has trained a few Jedi between the events of Episode VI and Episode VII. Unfortunately, Luke has gone into one sort of hiding in this film. Why? Something happened, after Return of the Jedi, that caused Luke to suddenly realize how dangerously powerful he is with the Force. Because of said incident, Luke has chosen exile for the greater good of the galaxy. He doesn't want people seeking him out. Also, its said that Luke does not feel like the Jedi should play a role in the new government. So not only does this information verify some rumors about Luke, it also sheds light that a New Republic has taken some what of a shape after Episode VI. However, it is odd that Luke wishes for the Jedi to remain apart from the government. What if Luke's beliefs clash with those of his sister's, Leia, and cause a family conflict? if true, it will be quite interesting to see how this plays out in the film.
Part 3: Daisy Ridley a.k.a. "Kira"
As the above photo suggests, and as do many people believe, Daisy Ridley's character "Kira" is the daughter of the married Han and Leia Solo. However, a shroud of mystery encompasses Kira. According to the leaks, Kira was raised in secrecy to keep her hidden from traitors of the Republic and another government (Presumably the New Empire). Why would Kira's existence need to be kept a secret? If she is the daughter of Han and Leia, then she is also powerful with the Force. After all, she is a Skywalker. This brings me to my next point.
Part 4: There Will Be Sith Inquisitors
The Inquisitors were first introduced in Star Wars: Rebels and were tasked with hunting down and destroying the remaining Jedi. Now, there has been many rumors speculating the Inquisitors would be involved in Episode VII. That looks to be true from the report of these leaks. It's no coincidence that these Inquisitors were introduced in Rebels. Based on the information leak, its highly possible that a remnant of these Inquisitors have survived up to this point and now lead a New Empire. Obviously, these Inquisitors would still hunt down Jedi, or any Force users, to destroy them, or possibly lure them to the Dark Side. This would give probable cause for Han and Leia to hide Kira. Again, this sets up my next topic.
Part 5: Adam Driver's Role
This is probably the meatiest part of these Episode VII leaks. As suggested by the photo above, and by the spoilers, Adam Driver's character is in fact an X-Wing pilot. More specifically, he is the leader of Red Squadron. Even more specifically, Driver's character has a strange obsession with Sith artifacts. When I discovered this, I said to myself, "I've got a bad feeling about this!" Earlier in the year, there were numerous reports and rumors of a "grave robber" charter in The Force Awakens. This grave robber is said to search the galaxy to find artifacts and remnants of the Sith. Some of you may remember this eery and spine chilling concept art leak.
This is a depiction of the grave robber character holding Darth freaking Vader's helmet! These leaks only seem to verify what earlier rumors suggested. Here is another concept art image of the grave robber.
This picture bares a scary resemblance to a well known Sith of the past. Doesn't this mask look strangely similar to that of Darth Revan's? Also, with Driver's character being fond of Sith artifacts, that would explain the cross guard lightsaber so many of you hate. (Just remember people how stupid you thought Darth Maul's lightsaber was from the trailer for Episode I and remember how awesome it was to see in the actual movie). Now I know a lot of you are thinking "Lucasfilm has already said the EU isn't cannon!" You're right they have, but does that mean that the EU won't influence these new films to some extent? Oh and by the way, these leaks also state that even though the EU isn't cannon, THE EU WILL STILL INFLUENCE THE MOVIES! Which yet again, brings me to my next point.
Part 6: BOBA FETT IS ALIVE!
Yeah you heard it (err read it)! Boba Fett is alive in the new movie! Unfortunately, the spoilers did not reveal the capacity of the role he will play in the new movie. The good news is, BOBA IS BACK!
Part 7: Oscar Isaac's Character
The plot leaks also state that Oscar Isaac's character is the leader of Blue Squadron in the new film. This is the cool part about Isaac's pilot. His last name is Darklighter. Perhaps he is the son, or relative, of Biggs? Who knows, that's all the leaks had to say about him.
What Do You Think?
If you read the spoilers, what is your opinion on Episode VII now? Has it changed? Are you more excited to see it or less? By the way, I hate to leave you all on a cliffhanger, but I have more information regarding the plot leaks and other cast members who may or may not be Andy Serkis! More articles about the leaks of Episode VII will follow! Until next, may the Force be with you!
