Previous Star Wars: Episode VII rumors have claimed that the movie will visit old locations from the previous movies, including Hoth, Endor, and Tatooine. Now, a new rumor is throwing Yoda's exile planet of Dagobah into the mix. Stop reading now if you don't want to know how the planet plays into the proposed storyline.
Last week, new details emerged about how Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) fits into the Star Wars: Episode VII storyline, from a tipster who reportedly read the second draft of J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan's screenplay. It was hinted that Luke may be swayed towards the Dark Side of the Force.
Today, we have a new report from This Is Infamous that reveals more details about Luke Skywalker's character arc. It's been widely reported, but never confirmed, that the story centers on John Boyega and Daisy Ridley's characters, who find a severed hand with a light saber attached to it, which they learn belongs to Luke Skywalker. While it was initially believed that Luke has been missing in the 30 years that have passed since the events of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, This Is Infamous reports that Luke has only been missing for the past 10 years. He spent the first 20 years after Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi trying to rebuild the Jedi Order, and his command of The Force has gotten so strong that the Jedi Master can literally move mountains or stop Imperial ships with just a simple look.
Luke begins to sense a disturbance in the force and starts to get pulled towards the Dark Side, as the Emperor's emergence begin to surface. In an attempt to resist temptation towards the Dark Side, Luke journeys back to Dagobah, Yoda's home planet in the original Star Wars trilogy, for a self-imposed exile. It is here that Luke is supposedly discovered by old and new friends. It's possible that Dagobah is where Luke ends up meeting John Boyega and Daisy Ridley's characters for the first time.
Of course, none of this has been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm, but are you excited that Star Wars: Episode VII may be returning to Dagobah? Chime in with your thoughts below.
