'Star Wars Episode VII': Sorting out the truth, rumor and speculation so far

18 August 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

First Look at Tatooine Set in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

18 August 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new Star Wars: Episode VII photo shows a portion of the Tatooine sets that have been built at London's Pinewood Studios. It was previously revealed that some of the scenes taking place on Luke Skywalker's home planet would be built on set, and this is believed to be where J.J. Abrams shot his Star Wars: Force For Change video that revealed a new X-Wing fighter.

The huts in this photo reportedly belong to the Tusken Raiders (otherwise known as The Sand People), but that has not been confirmed (though there were previous reports of some Tusken Raiders spotted on set). A good portion of the Tatooine scenes from Star Wars: Episode VII were shot in Dubai. A number of photos leaked from this location earlier in the year. To revisit those images: (clickHere)

Rumor: Star Wars: Episode VII Villains And Flashback Sequence Revealed, Plus Alleged Han Solo Concept Art

18 August 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII will likely continue to dominate the news cycle all the way up to its December release next year – so get comfortable, everyone. Today’s scoop on the sci-fi franchise update should be preceded with the disclaimer that lots of wild rumors have been flying around the web for months, and there’s no way to confirm the validity of any of this. However, what’s been circulating online lately is pretty meaty stuff, so if it is accurate, fans will definitely be intrigued by it.

According to Latino Review, which has been reporting the majority of the Star Wars rumors, the villains in Episode VII are called The Inquisitors. If you’re interested in all the details on those baddies, surf on over to Wookiepedia (yes, it’s an actual thing), but suffice to say, the Inquisitors are quite nasty customers.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Star Adam Driver Shares His Experiences On Set

16 August 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A lot of inside Intel from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII has leaked, with huge plot details being spoiled left and right. Despite the deluge of information that is currently on the Internet, the main cast and the filmmakers have very little to say about the actual film itself. Star Adam Driver, who is rumored to be playing one of the villains, a Sith Inquisitor, was recently asked about his experiences on set. And while he doesn't reveal any new character information or his driving motivation in the sequel, he did have a lot to say about his involevement and love for the franchise.

Adam Driver first opened up about his time spent with the original cast and what it felt like to be a part of such a huge Hollywood event.

Star Wars Episode VII: Han Solo and Villain Concept Art Leaked Along With Story Spoilers

15 August 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s been a busy day for Star Wars Episode VII rumours, and we’ve rounded up the best for you right here. The following can all be considered major spoilers though, so you may want to stop reading now!

First up is news on the movie’s villains. According to Latino-Review, Luke Skywalker has been a captive of a group called The Inquisitors since shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi. They’re defenders of the Sith Order who have been around for a very long time, and flashbacks will apparently reveal their connections to both a young Princess Leia (played by Carrie Fisher’s biological daughter, Billie Lourd) and…Darth Vader!

That’s right, the villain is set to make a brief return in Star Wars Episode VII, but the main villain is described by Badass Digest as wearing a black robe with deep red eyes »

We promised him up front: No Jedi mind tricks. But when EW interviewed Adam Driver for our Fall Movie Preview, we couldn’t help but slip him a few questions about his work on Star Wars: Episode VII.

Although he couldn’t confirm this, multiple sources close to the Star Wars follow-up have already told EW that Driver will be playing a villain, a threat to both veteran players (Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher) and the cast’s newcomers.

Latest Star Wars: Episode VII plot rumours are full of Sith, first look at new villain?

15 August 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a busy day for Star Wars fans, what with our possible first look at the redesigned Imperial Stormtroopers and some alleged Han Solo concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we’ve got a tonne of alleged plot details for the eagerly-anticipated first instalment of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy. However, it should be noted that these come by way of rumour specialists Latino-Review and Badass Digest, so there’s also a good chance the post is pretty much spoiler free…

So, we’ve all heard the reports that Episode VII will open with Luke Skywalker’s severed hand floating through space before coming into the possession of Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who then set off on an adventure to find Luke with the help of Han Solo and Chewbacca. Well, according to Latino-Review, it turns out that Luke hasn’t just been missing since »

Darth Vader: “The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner. Now I am the master.”

Have The "Star Wars" Villains Been Revealed?

15 August 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There has been numerous rumors about the potential villains of the currently in production "Star Wars Episode VII" from Sith Lords, to bounty hunters to 'Sith Witches', to even 'The Inquisitor' from the upcoming "Star Wars: Rebels" animated series. There's been no confirmation regarding any of them.

Potential Major Spoilers Ahead

Now, Latino Review has dropped a pretty massive report that reveals some potentially major spoilers about the movie's plot. Whilst most of the rumors so far have dealt with the first act of the film, this reveal is very much second act stuff.

It suggests the 'The Inquisitors' are the villains of the piece: "The Inquisitors are defenders of the Sith Order and they've been around for a long time. Just how long is what turns Episode VII's story on its head"

Now we start hitting the real spoilers. Luke Skywalker has been captured by the Inquisitors, and once »

Han Solo concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII?

15 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning we brought you a couple of images reportedly showing the new-look Stormtrooper designs for Star Wars: Episode VII, which made their way online via Indie Revolver, and now the site is back with some alleged concept art featuring Harrison Ford’s space scoundrel Han Solo. The second image in particular will be familiar to anyone who’s seen The Empire Strikes Back, and if genuine, it may support those earlier rumours that we’ll be heading back to Hoth in the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel. Take a look…

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015, with returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd), John Boyega »

Rumor: Star Wars Episode 7 Villains Revealed, Will Some Old Faces Pop Up?

15 August 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

It is not a good day for the Mystery Box.  On the heels of this morning’s potential reveal of the new Stormtrooper helmets a bit (bordering on a lot) more information about Star Wars: Episode VII has come tumbling out of the gates.  And I fear for J.J. Abrams’ sanity moving forward with the production (and my own moving forward with the day), because it feels like there is at least one more Star Wars story hitting after this one. I’m warning you though, the stuff you’re about to read about the film’s villains potentially qualifies as a huge spoiler.  If you don’t want to know what the central conflict of the film is, it’s best to stop reading now.  If you want to go ahead, hit the jump for spoilers on the Star Wars Episode 7 villains.  The film hits theaters on December 18, 2015.

Star Wars: Episode VII Villains Revealed

15 August 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan Art by Yvan Quinet

The Star Wars: Episode VII news continues to roll in today! Thanks to our friends from Latino-Review, it looks like we know who the villains in the story will be. First things first… Spoiler Alert.

So far what we do know about the movie is that Luke Skywalker's lightsaber crash lands on a planet where it is found by the characters played by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. This leads them on a search to find Luke, during which time they come across Han and Chewie. They team up and continue to search for Luke who has been missing since the events of Return of the Jedi. Apparently Luke is being held captive.

Now on to some new information! The villains of the film are the Inquisitors, who are loosely based on the Inquistors from the Expanded Universe. We've previously heard these referred to as Jedi Hunters. »

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 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.
