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.
This is a pretty interesting premise, but what sounds real exciting is what villains we’ll be seeing.
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…
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.
If this is true then color me excited for this movie! And if anyone can tie up what looks like a complete shitshow of time lines, it’s J.J. Abrams. Even though I am jumping up and down yelling in excitement like a fat kid at the front of the line of a fried butter stand, I’m remaining realistic that this could just be a nasty rumor…like the one that spread around my school about me playing with barbie dolls. I don’t want to talk about it… If you must know, my power rangers were running a high class whore house and barbie and her 32 friends were working there…until I stepped on the power rangers’ Lego spaceship and set all of them on fire. Man, I miss college.
