Yesterday, an unconfirmed report surfaced claiming that the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will first debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim this month, before debuting in theaters with Disney's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Since the first trailer didn't give us a whole lot of information, aside from revealing four new characters, many fans are hoping to learn much more about the plot when the latest footage arrives. If you can't wait that long for more confirmed plot details, then perhaps this report from Making Star Wars will satiate your need for all things Star Wars. While these details have yet to be confirmed, if true, they will provide HEAVY SPOILERS, so read on at your own risk.
The first trailer introduced us to the main villain, Kylo Ren, the cloaked figure with the unique crossbar light saber. There are, of course, more villains in the film, including Captain Phasma, rumored to be played by Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie and Uber, played by Andy Serkis. There is hardly anything we know for certain about Kylo Ren at this point, but if this report is true, it could implicate a connection between the villain and Han Solo. The site details a scene towards the middle of the film, where the Millennium Falcon is shot down by Kylo, landing on a snow-covered planet. When Kylo tracks down the ship, the site reports that he actually sits in the pilot seat and "has a moment." Some may speculate that Kylo is actually Han's son, which is never laid out as fact, but could be an interesting tidbit, especially given a rumor from February, that also originated at Making Star Wars, which revealed Kylo is responsible for Han's death. About the cockpit scene, Making Star Wars says:
"There's almost an implication of remorse, maybe frustration, in that action to me. There's emotion there. To me that says there's a connection between Kylo, the ship and its pilot. It is almost as if he is sitting at the desk of the job he felt he would one day hold and now due to circumstances never will. Maybe Han is his father? We know this relationship ends badly though. He sits in the man's chair before he kills him."
The site goes onto speculate that Kylo and Rey are actually brother and sister, the children of Han Solo and Princess Leia. Of course, there is nothing to back that notion up at this time.
The site also offers new details on The General, a character played by Domhnall Gleeson. There were earlier rumors that this character may be the son of Luke Skywalker, but Making Star Wars claims that doesn't appear to be the cast now, according to new information. They also hint that The General dies after the rebels set charges all around a location only known as the "Evil Castle." The character is not heard from again after having "a final check-in" with his boss, Uber.
It is also believed that both Kylo Ren and Uber are alive at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, setting them up for appearances in the subsequent sequels, along with Captain Phasma. However, both Uber and Captain Phasma aren't seen much in Star Wars: The Force Awakens with Kylo Ren being the main villain this time out. Uber is said to only appear in three scenes. Captain Phasma is said to be a "Boba Fett-type" and an "emerging character" in the franchise. Of course, none of this has been confirmed, but there is quite a bit to chew on here.
