Potentially major spoilers regarding Star Wars: Episode VII's villains

08.15.2014

The leaks and news regarding STAR WARS: EPISODE VII are beginning to hit in rapid succession, so we will try to keep our excitement to a fanboy minimum, but there is a potentially huge spoiler that has made it's way online regarding who the villains will be in next year's sequel that could explain a hell of a lot of what we have been hearing involving the STAR WARS canon and casting rumors.

At the risk of ruining this monumental movie moment for any of you, I will ask that if you do not want anything spoiled for next Christmas' event picture, turn away now. Everyone else, if you want to know who will be facing off against our heroes (potentially), scroll past the image of the Inquisitor below.

Welcome, my spoilery chaps! Now, it was no coincidence that I chose an image of the new villain from the animated series STAR WARS: REBELS to buffer this article because, well, he will play a part in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. According to Latino Review, so this will be categorized as a rumor/spoiler, the revamped continuity of the STAR WARS canon was done to help bring in these characters and events that will alter the direction of what the extended universe has shown fans for the last three decades.

Their sources claim that the rumors of Sith Witches as baddies in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is actually referencing the Inquisitors, the pale, Sith villain that is being changed from EU fiction to match what is being introduced in STAR WARS: REBELS. They also go on to claim the following.

When our hero(es) find Luke and the Inquisitors are revealed, Luke’s explanation on the history of this order is going to trigger a flashback to explain that the Inquisitors have been tied into the Sith all along.

Remember when we broke Billie Lourd’s casting (Lourd is the biological daughter of Carrie Fisher)? That’s not so she can play a Solo kid, it’s so she can play a much younger Princess Leia than we’ve ever seen before in this flashback.

Their final reveal claims that the Inquisitors will report directly to Darth Vader, meaning that if this turns out to be true, we will be seeing the former Anakin Skywalker once more in a STAR WARS film, albeit in a flashback.

All in all, I think this is a good way to reinvigorate the STAR WARS franchise and give it some longevity for the new trilogy as well as the standalone films. The best part is that it seems like the changes are being handled with respect for the source material and not straying too far from what made the original trilogy so good. But, it remains to be seen if there is any legitimacy to these rumors.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII opens December 18, 2015.

This Stinks if It's True

George Lucas(love him or hate him) decided in Return of the Jedi and the prequels to make the first six Star Wars episodesthe fall and redemption of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. I don't mind mentioning Vader or having something attributed to him such as a recording or something that belonged to him that had become an icon of sorts. Bringing him back to life would destroy the storyline of the first six movies except with a damned good explanation (and cloning doesn't count). Regarding

they're not talking about bringing Vader back to life, just an appearance during the flashback of the origins of the Inquisitors.

Anything tied to the "Luke's hand floating in space" thing I feel is bunk. Be it Badass Digest or Latino Review

Flash backs

The use of flash backs in a S.W film doesn't feel at all natural to me, it would break the flow of the previous films.

Another MAJOR image from IndieRevolver.com. This is serious spoiler territory, so you've been warned.

Second time I've heard flashback mentioned. No other star wars film has used flashbacks and it'd be a shitty time to start now

They could just use a Jedi holocron or some recorded message to prevent the flashback from feeling like a flashback.

Latino Review gives Latinos like me a bad name

Seriously why does anyone report on what Latino Review puts out to draw traffic to their website, I don't believe any dribble that comes out from their keyboards, they have been proven wrong time and time again.

This sounds like bad fan fiction. Luckily this "story" is probably not true.

As long as Vader's only in flashback, that's no bad thing. That guy was char-grilled Ewok chow the last we saw.

This guy is gonna lean on all the old characters because it's safe. Why build a new universe? He did the same shit with Star Trek. Shouldn't be surprised.

If Vader is only in flashbacks how are they bringing him back from the dead? If they go this route they clearly they have to show how they tie into the Sith and what they have been doing all this time. Common sense goes along way.

hmmmm

Not sure I'm digging the idea of a "flashback" in the middle of a Star Wars movie. I just don't feel that plot device works in the narrative that the other films set. Honestly to me it just sounds like a way to shoe horn an appearance by Vader into it. I'm not entirely opposed to Vader showing up but I don't know if a flashback feels right. I can see it being a holocron recording. Perhaps Luke finds some secret files of Vader's? Also not sure if i like them shoving this Inquistor guy in our

I don't hate the idea of him, but I hate the idea of him being behind events in the OT.

I hope your idea is right. Flashbacks just seem out of place in Star Wars.

I like this idea of Sith Witches. Would be a nice way to build to the universe again.

I wonder since Vader is gone, Star Wars will pull what Marvel is doing have one main, centric villain that ties everyone together like Thanos in the MCU, while having smaller villains for the the other films.
