Rumor: Potential details revealing Star Wars 7 villains

06.16.2014by:

This story has the potential to turn out to be nothing but dreck before the night is over, so you will humor me anyways right? Good, settled. It's an interesting rumor regarding STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, and until we are given an official synopsis for the movie, don't take any speculation too seriously. The folks at MakingStarWars have some information they believe to be from actual STAR WARS insiders when it comes to the villains in the new STAR WARS movie.

MakingStarWars offers the following disclaimer:

This is simply what we are hearing from people that have proven to us that are from Pinewood. I don’t want anyone to get their hopes up or down for that matter. But let it be known, this is what we are heard in the last two weeks and it could be accurate or inaccurate.

So if it turns out to be true, you can’t say I didn’t warn you with this nifty image:

The production of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is referring to the villains as Jedi Hunters who are dressed in black, use lightsabers, and hunt Jedi (go figure). It also says they are not necessarily Sith but don’t like the Jedi. They have foot soldiers looking like Storm Troopers, but in black and chrome armor. The Jedi Hunters have been around for a long time and were tasked with protecting the Sith and once the Sith were destroyed, they began to rise up and disturb the growth of the Jedi.

This source says Luke Skywalker has been fighting to stop this for the last thirty years of his life, but he is outnumbered, tired, and needs some help. One scene that was reportedly filmed includes the Jedi Hunters worshiping the Sith. The rumor is their goal is to resurrect at Sith and will succeed at the end of Episode VIII, which will then lead to the conflict in Episodes IX.

So it could be fan fiction, it could be a dream someone had and decided to report about. It sounds like someone really likes STAR WARS REBELS if you ask me. This would be a great way to make a tight trilogy though, let’s hope J.J. Abram and friends have something as cool or better in mind.

What do you think about all of the STAR WARS: EPISODE VII rumors, do you have a cool one?

I listened to the latest episode of "Now, This is Podcasting!" and they kind of explained what could happen and it actually makes sense. Sounds like there will be a connection that starts with Star Wars Rebels and the Inquisitor.

I don't really like the term Jedi Hunters, because I kinda feel like a real Sith should just about be the only real challenge to a Jedi. Now, if they were just a rogue group that were badass fighters (even with lightsabers), whose mission was to revive or find a Sith lord, that could make more sense.

Yeah. 'Zealous familiars' crossed my mind. Kind of like a minor sect of Sith worshippers trained in the art of lightsaber fighting but none of the force powers. Think of it as a small legion of General Grievous-like individuals. Finding and reinstating a new Sith Lord might work if the 'balance of the force' is more like there always has to be a dark side AND the light side existing together, but that doesn't sync too well with the previous canon where Vader was thought to have brought balance

Bullshit, or at least I hope it is.

There is one Jedi in the universe left, as we know it, Luke! So, what the fuck are Jedi hunters getting all amped up about? In the old movies, they made it seem like Jedi's were an extinct religion, and Luke was the only one keeping the Jedi tradition alive, there is usually a master and an apprentice, for both Jedi and Sith, none of this Jedi academy as if they had textbooks, that is ridiculous, lightsabers and Jedi should be like endangered, sparse, so rare you probably shouldn't ever

It's going to take 30 years just to train a handful of Jedi, how would there be Jedi Hunters already? I think this is bullshit.

"The Jedi Hunters were tasked with protecting the Sith. Once the Sith were destroyed..."

...they were out of a job and the Previous Employer section of their CVs read "Sith (deceased due to our collective incompetence)"? Who's going to hire these guys?

"They have foot soldiers looking like Storm Troopers, but in black and chrome."

What colour's their Death Star? Christ, this sounds like utter fanwanky shit.

I wouldn't see how these guys would be a huge problem for jedis, but maybe they are more of like the army as opposed to important actors/characters

A couple of film school compatriots got a chance to visit Pinewood three weeks ago and spotted a group of black robed fellows on a Tattoine set before they were kicked off. They thought they were Sith Lords but I guess this could confirm the plot up above. Take that as you want.

Soooo.... what was the point of all that 'bringing balance to the force' crap when The Sith have this kind of contingency planned out?

I don't mind the downvoting, but seriously. What was the point? Six movies to fulfill this prophecy and two films later it's back to square one. Or rather, square four.

I totally get what you are saying. Seems like lazy screenwriting to me.

Why would the Sith need protecting? Not to mention Order 66 wiped out all but 3 Jedi that we know about. Ya, this is garbage.

It may not be Jedi Hunters but a group of people who have a beef with Jedis.

Jedi Hunters???

Why would there be Jedi Hunters after the Empire was destroyed? And Siths start out as Jedis, so why would these supposed Jedi Hunters be killing Jedis? It seems counter productive to their plan.

Palpatine and Maul were never Jedi. But in any case, this sounds really unlikely

The Empire was never destroyed, it was the Death Star, the Emperor, Darth Vader, etc. In the novels at least, there are still whole fleets of Star Destroyers and other shit all over the galaxy. But, no, the Jedi Hunters angle doesn't make a lot of sense to me either.

If that is the plot, I like it. I like that with these new films there is the aspect of the unknown. The prequels felt like Lucas was just plodding along going through the motions to get to the events of 4-6.

I heard the Millenium Falcon is playing one of the villains, considering it already side lined Ford for eight weeks.
