Rumored details on the opening and ending of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

03.03.2015

We have been getting less and less details regarding STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS in recent weeks. With AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON only a couple of months away, we will likely be getting a look at new footage in the form of a second trailer. But, aside from that, the rumor front has been fairly stagnant.

Still, old reliable rumor site Making Star Wars has some details that reinforce previous rumors about the opening sequence. Check them out.

The film does open with a lightsaber in space. It falls to the ground in a savannah environment during the day. It is quickly discovered by a farmer named Naka. Naka accidentally ignites the weapon and starts a fire with it. At first he runs, but then turns around and obtains the weapon. I assume he snatches the weapon so it is not destroyed in the fire.  Naka then takes the weapon to his elder called The Vicar.

The Vicar is most likely played by Max von Sydow. It is most likely a code name too. Chances are they didn’t need to name the character during filming so they just went with the title The Vicar. Anyways, the Vicar appears to contact the Rebels and this brings Poe Dameron to the planet.

Later that night, Poe Dameron arrives and retrieves the lightsaber from The Vicar. The only problem? They’ve brought the Empire there as well (not sure if the Empire followed Poe or intercepted the initially transmission he received). Poe sees Stormtroopers are coming and he places the laser sword safely in a little droid: BB-8. The droid flees and the heroic Poe Dameron prepares to fight!

The site also claims to have details on the ending of the film which reduce Mark Hamill's involvement to a glorified cameo.  You can read those over at their site if you wish by clicking here.  They also have intel indicating that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o will be heavily enhanced by CGI for a role that also required a body double.  Whether any of this turns out to be true or not, it does go to reinforce the fact that we are all desperate to hear concrete details about STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and every other Lucasfilm related project in the works.  I just want to see the trio of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher back in character and that will hold me until the film hits theaters.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens on December 18, 2015.

Sounds regurgitated from Devins stupid

Remember that last year Devin Farci wrote fake story plots to "throw off" people, and this sounds like stuff someone ignorant to the Star Wars story would come up with. The Lightsaber in Space thing screams "Oh, I thought Luke got his hand cut off in a space station" type ignorance of someone with no interest in following the series.

So Mark Hamill...

The guy was in London for MONTHS just hanging out and grabbing donuts from the catering table?
Doesn't make sense cause he could have shot his "cameo" in just a couple of days... why have him there for so long just for a cameo?

Because if he was only on set for a few days, the fans would find out. Then they'd realize he only has a cameo. Then the negatice word of mouth would be unstoppable. when they film reality contest shows, they guys who get eliminated in the game in the first episode are just there chilling until filming wraps for the same!e reason.

Wasn't the lightsaber in space thing part of Lucas's treatment? You know, the one they completely threw out?

The folks at Making Star Wars tend to be real smug about their info. I get that they believe their source and have "documents" although, they never offer up any, and part of their claims is that these documents go so far back that they couldn't be fake, but if I were Disney, Lucasfilm, or Abrams, I wouldn't be above making fake shooting schedules, documents to support fake leaks (to combat real leaks) or anything of the sort. Especially if we're dealing with deaths of classic characters and the

I take it all with a grain of salt --it doesn't matter how "Certain" they are or confident in their source. I won't take anything as fact and I'll get to Dec. 18th and be surprised no matter what.

and it's not that I don't like or want these rumors to be true. I'm fine with most of what they've shared, I just still think it's wise to not take anything as truth until the film gets here.

Devin Farci was practically bragging about coming up with "leaked info" last year, sounds like exactly the same crap, and some site didn't get the memo and is running with this story.

I'm sure 99% of these rumours will end up being total BS

but they're still fun to read.

I doubt this will be the opening; it sounds too pedestrian, IMO. And the rumour for the ending flies in the face of the official announcement that the original three (Fisher, Ford & Hamill) would have their biggest appearances in the first film, and then slowly move into the background in favour of the younger cast members.

Considering how old he is and that they seem to be focusing on new characters, I am not sure why you would put stock into only being interested in the original characters. I am fairly certain this new trilogy won't be focusing on old characters, leaving them as side characters and in cameos. If you're getting your hopes up for the old bunch getting into more adventures, you're probably going to be disappointed.

He was filming in England for months, so right there we know that these people didn't research much.
