As per usual, this story is rife with Star Wars: Episode VII plot information that could be considered a MAJOR SPOILER! Continue at your own risk...
A few more Star Wars: Episode VII story details have been leaked by Latino Review, and first thing they do is clear up the rumor that the main villains will be called Sith Inquisitors. It is believed that they will not go by that name in the movie. Though, there will be a number of Sith and one of them may be a cyborg. But not the cyborg shown in a recent piece of concept art.
This is where there story takes an interesting turn. As we've heard in recent weeks, the /main-star-wars-episode-vii-villain-revealed-in-new-concept-art/concept art which reveals one of Star Wars: Episode VII's main villains is not a cyborg Sith Inquisitor as previously reported. It is actually Emperor Palpatine, also known as Darth Sidious. You can revisit the photo: /main-star-wars-episode-vii-villain-revealed-in-new-concept-art/CLICK HERE
/star-wars-7-sidious-emperor-palpatine/Last week, it was rumored that Emperor Palpatine will be the main villain in Star Wars: Episode VII. He is the puppet master behind a new plan to destroy the Jedi, and will be seen in all three new movies. The catch is, he's not being played by Ian McDiarmid, who took over the role in 1983's Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and returned to play him in all three prequels, beginning with Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 1999, and continuing in 2002's Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. This has led to rampant speculation that Andy Serkis is actually playing the villain in the new trilogy. This has not been confirmed or denied by Disney and Lucasfilm, and is just wishful thinking on Latino Review's part.
While no official story details have been revealed, it is believed that the main plot will revolve around Han Solo and Chewbacca's quest to find a missing Luke Skywalker. This new report claims that someone kidnapped Luke shortly after the end credits rolled on Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. They also took whatever was left of Darth Vader's body after the funeral pyre burned up most of his Darth Vader armor. Luke has been held captive by this person for the past 30 years.
Many thought that Domhnall Gleeson was playing Luke Skywalker's son, but unless the master Jedi found a way to procreate while being imprisoned, that is not the case. Skywalker has been locked-up ever since we last saw him on screen.
Because he looks so much like Mark Hamill, Latino Review speculates that the actor may be playing Luke in the flashbacks we've previously heard about, which include Darth Vader and Princess Leia. The one and only thing they can confirm is the fact that Domhnall Gleeson is definitely not playing Luke's son.
The site's sources also offer more insight into what is being shot in and around Skellig Michael Island in Ireland. Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley were spotted on set while filming took place at this location in late July. The production is heading back in November, when the landscape will be vastly different than in the summer months. It will instead be grey and dark, which will play into the overall story arc.
Skellig Michael Island is rumored to be the Sith homeworld. The stone hut ruins on that island are said to be a control center, with the planet itself a massive weapon on par with the Death Star. Though, it should be noted that this was in idea tat first sprang froth in the redrafted version of the Michael Arndt screenplay. This may have been changed in subsequent rewriters.
It is also noted that Darth Ruin my be the main villain and will be introduced on Skellig Michael Island. Are Emperor Palpatine and Darth Ruin the same person? This is what Star Wars Wiki has to say about the character:
The character of Darth Ruin was created byGeorge Lucas as part of the backstory for the prequel trilogy. In George Lucas's notes, Ruin is an unnamed Jedi Knight who fell to the dark side with fifty followers 2000 years prior to the film saga, founding the Sith. Since the Sith have been well established in other C-canon works for thousands of years, this "foundation" was degraded to be only a schism, after three previous ones.
In related news, Latino Review also claims that Harrison Ford didn't actually break his leg while running up the ramp of the Millennium Falcon. The actor is rumored to have broken his leg on a super secret set that ties into the storyline and would be considered a major spoiler if leaked. This is the reason neither Disney nor Lucasfilm have corrected the Millennium Falcon error in reporting on the accident.
In regards to the /star-wars-episode-vii-stormtrooper-and-snowtrooper-helmets-revealed/Stormtrooper helmet leak, a Latino Review forum member geo-tagged the photo, which proved that the image had been taken at Pinewood Studios in London on May 18th, pretty much verifying its authenticity.
