The 4 Most Important Star Wars Stories Of The Year (So far)


Big news 2014 continues with more on Star Wars, specifically Episode VII and the view from the outside of the Disney/Abrams Death Star.

Everything Star Wars is LOCKED DOWN like nobody’s business. The Disney/Star Wars team is monitoring the internet activity of anyone with story-level involvement and access to the slightest bit of information. As we rapidly approach production, things are solidifying and Disney/Star Wars is getting ready to board the Abrams Denial Train (previous passenger Benedict KAHNberbatch).

It’s going to be dodgy territory for entertainment news reporting on Star Wars from here on out, so let’s begin by putting our cards on the table: Please pay close attention to what we are and are not reporting. Especially with something like Star Wars, we stand by what we’ve reported only as far as we can – which is to say meetings don’t always lead to castings and scripts can get tossed around or out at the drop of a hat.

Speaking of whole scripts being booted, let’s get to it:



We’ve heard that the big difference of opinion between JJ Abrams and screenwriter Michael Arndt was the story direction of Episode VII. We know Arndt (Toy Story 3) got booted from Episode VII scripting duties and was replaced by Lawrence Kasdan with some JJ for good measure. We’ve heard that Arndt was much more into the story of the Solo kids, while JJ felt – and still feels – that this the story of the Skywalker line.

Since Arndt walked almost all of his ideas have been tossed and Abrams/Kasdan are pursuing the Skywalker-centric version they wanted. Mark Hamill’s part has been beefed up so much he might end up shooting 6 months on the movie, our source estimated.



Jesse Plemons of Friday Night Lights and Breaking Bad was heavily rumored to be under consideration for a lead role in Star Wars Episode VII. We heard that this is basically a locked deal, at least as locked as anyone can be at this point.

We expect Plemons’ involvement will be announced early on, but the Disney/Star Wars PR Plemons Plan, currently, is to confirm his involvement without naming his part. So we’ll get a confirmation, but not an official confirm that Plemons is playing Ben Skywalker, Luke’s son. Plemons’ character would be the main protagonist of Episode VIII. EIGHT!



Strap in, a lot of you aren’t going to like this.

To counter-act the prequels, the Boba Fett spin-off movie planned for 2018 has an interesting twist pitched by Episode VII writer Lawrence Kasdan: the spin-off will start with a complete stranger killing Boba Fett and taking his armor, starting a Man-With-No-Name bounty hunter tale. So: someone kills the Boba Fett from the prequels and takes his armor and name. One this is for certain is that Kasdan didn’t like the prequel and wants no Bobba Fett Clone in the spin-off film.

Sounds a lot like a Western and it sounds like it could restore a fan-favorite character that was totally a little boy with thousands of versions of his father running around. Or it could just be a lot of stupid rib-elbowing about this stranger doomed to fall into a Sarlaac pit in the most anti-climactic franchise exit ever.

Lastly I was told by 3 sources, reps etc, etc…(so call who ever you want) that Captain America director Joe Johnston is on top of the list to direct the spin-off, which makes sort of sense since he began his career as a concept artist and effects technician on the first Star Wars film. REMEMBER NOW before you all go and say he’s directing the project, I never said he has the job, just that he’s on top of the list, let’s get that perfectly clear.



In response to a rumor that Obi-Wan would have some sort of offspring, we’re told that it’s absolutely not true. That being said, the Kenobi family will come into play. Could be niece nephew, no real details on that one. It could be a Force Ghost or a something else, we just know it’s not his daughter or grandkid.

That’s all we’ve got for you at the moment, but we’re still on the never-ending hunt for Star Wars news. Until Episode IX, or at least until they cast all of us as senators in our own New Republic Planet, we’ll be here with you.

    Johnston has been my dream choice for the Boba Fett movie gig for so long. He’s talked about wanting to do it for years, and I want to see him bring the character to the big screen in all his glory. He’s perfect for it. As for the retcon, it doesn’t bother me at all. That clone angle was horrible, and took away what was cool and mysterious about the character. By doing this, we can go back to that cold, mysterious, badass version of the character without the terrible backstory. I’m all for it.

    1. Love the idea of Boba being someone unknown who killed Boba Fett (real), son of the notorious Jango Fett, and took on his mantle. Maybe then they can RE-retcon the ESB and ROTJ DVD’s and Blurays and put Bullochs voice back in there damn it.

    2. Plemens I’m find with. He has that Hamill style look down pat. I liked him in Breaking Bad but he was *playing* dopey. However, I’m still going to be thinking ‘METH DAMON!’ when I see him in Ep7!

    3. Obi Wan’s got a family out there somewhere. It’s silly to think that Luke at no point, would not try to find them. Seriously. Why can’t he have a sister, a brother, a cousin or whatnot whose child ends up in Episode 8 and plays some sort of pivotal role?


    Why no news about Lando!!!!!!

    My new hope is luke & leia’s new family being held accountable for their family causing the worst atrocities done in the known starwars universe. With rumblings going thruout the spice-trade, new republic, rebel/trade alliances, farmers, and criminals alike all suspecting/knowing vader’s luke & leia’s father -leia even being present for the destruction of alderaan. Luke’s foster parents burned alive. Ben leaving w/ luke, ending up dead by luke’s real father. Luke destroying a trade ship, including tattooine’s trade kingpin. And at the same time killing the bounty hunter contracted to bring luke to justice. This should all solidify public fervor that this family is worse than hitler, and should be taken to task for the results of their actions.
    eh, it’ll probably be about blue-beings wanting to save a tree holding ancestral-knowledge.

    Why would they cast this fatheaded, no eyebrow having, bleach-blonded ginger to be in any form of leading character?!?? Ginger’s don’t count as fulfilling a minority quota.

    Like the retcon retcon of a retconn’d vader retcon, hrmm on thor director directing.

    JJ needs to cast sophie & isabelle nélisse in some capacity or another!

    1) I hate to think that Luke has offspring.

    I have always imagined him as a lone jedi knight all dedicated to the Force and to rebuild the Jedi Order (task in which he failed, and so we find him in retirement on a lonly planet like Yoda and Ben before him…).

    2) I really really really do not like Jesse Plemons face. A red/blond Matt Damon in Star Wars?!?!? Hell, NO !

    Alex Pettyfer is a faaaar better choice both as as Han son that Luke son.

    Really, please, everyone else but not Plemons.

    3) @J.J. Abrams, Han’s offsprings are 100% Skywalker line, as Leia is an Skywalker just like Luke is.

    4) J.J. has taken a huge risk by choosing to alter the original vision of GL.
    I really do not like this choice at all, and I have a bad feeling about all this.

    They need to treat the Fett like “Dredd” and never have the Fett take his helmet off for the film. Bring back the mystery.

  • J- Dub

    About the force ghosts, I heard that Hayden Christensen is set to reprise his role as Anakin’s ghost.

  • Redbull Werewolf

    I’m Fine with the stranger as boba fett but If thats the case then Disney needs to remove Jango fetts voice from the special editions. I don’t think all of lucas’ additions were bad but if they start to ruin continuity then disney needs to relese a definitive Bluray

  • Iam_Spartacus

    PLEASE! Not Hayden! He’s worthless as an actor, he would ruin the film.

  • Steve-O

    yeah, like the original nonfuckedwith trilogy from the 70′s and 80′s, Han needs to shoot first again and Hayden needs to be completely erased from RotJ.

  • SubSumeYou

    I agree with you. The franchise is deluding these new producers.

  • Redbull Werewolf

    agreed. I don’t mind stuff like Enhanced effects or even the jabba scene in ANH (even the ROTJ dance number could stay if the effects were redone) but stuff like Hayden and fetts voice need to go. Id also put back in the original Emoeror scene in ESB. As a kid i had n idea it wasn’t Ian McDairmand. the original scene worked well, the updated scene didn’t feel right

  • Joe K.

    Totally agree! If they end up doing what Kasdan suggests – they need to open the movie with “The Stranger’s” back to the camera, killing Boba, removing the armor and putting it himself through various camera angles that don’t show his face – then turning to face the camera just as he pulls on the helmet so we never see his face … done.

    There’s your opening scene . . .

  • Joe K.

    Sadly – they are kind of in a logic box with this one. You would have to imagine that Luke, as the head of the New Jedi Order, is going to be getting guidance from a Force Ghost. It wouldn’t make sense for Ewan to reprise his Obi-Wan from the Prequels as the Ghost … because Luke always saw the “Old Ben” ghost in the originals.

    Luke: “Ben! You look so much younger!”
    Obi-Wan: “Well, I am a Ghost now, so I figured why look old? . . .”

    It just makes sense that a redeemed Anakin Skywalker – The Chosen One – would be the one to interact with and help his Son carry on the Jedi Order.

  • Vadakin

    I’m calling bullshit on all of this. Even Abrams can’t be that dense. Replacing Boba Fett? Luke with kids even though we’ve never seen him actually have a relationship? Obi-Wan’s family? No. None of it makes any sense.

    I also can’t see Lucas OKing all of this (which would have to happen since the terms of the agreement said the movies had to be from his treatments).

  • findingclues4u

    By that logic it should be Yoda… Luke only knew of his father as a dying repenting Jedi who had fallen down the path of the dark side. He knew nothing of the man he was before, or did he have anything to do with his training. Luke never knew Anakin Skywalker as we did from the prequels, to Luke, Anakin was a broken man, Sebastian Shaw, torn and battered in battle, with a life time of regret. Also, considering how they aged McGregor for RotS, I have no problem with them aging him as a force ghost a bit. Honestly, apart from Guiness having White/Grey Hair, his face wasn’t exactly Elderly, he was 63 when filming.

  • Tony Trunzo

    Lucas doesn’t have to approve anything, and while Disney did acquire his old treatments for the new Star Wars films they aren’t contractually obligated to use them. They’ve been claiming since the purchase that episode VII will be an original story, with Lucas’s role that of a symbolic consultant. Disney and Abrams can do whatever they like with the franchise. Whether or not any of the rumors and news over the past year turns out to be true obviously remains to be seen.

  • Pingback: Star Wars Rumor: 'Boba Fett' Spinoff Puts New Character In The Armor

  • Bright Starsong

    Could this Obi-Wan thing just be someone seeing the name Ben? Which in the novels was the name of Luke’s son.

  • Pingback: Star Wars rumors: Boba Fett spinoff film will kill character, alter origin story

  • mashedpotatoes

    Actually, that’s not true. The outlines for Episodes 7 – 9, along with the idea of doing the spinoff films, was part of the package when Disney purchased Lucasfilm. Also, Lucas and Kennedy have been friends for more than 30 years, and Lucas and Abrams are also friends with respect for each others’ work. Although Lucas does not “officially” have the final word, it’s highly unlikely that Kennedy and Abrams are going to “do whatever they like” with the franchise without consulting Lucas first. He trusts Kennedy to protect his vision and his legacy, so any fan fantasies about tampering with the Special Editions or the Prequels probably won’t happen.

  • StacyMealer

    Well the Fett rumor came from here, so its obviously wrong. Obviously. But it could be right with all the clones.

    So we are all wrong. Go home, nothing to see here.

    20 years down the line he shouldn’t be getting ANY advice from force ghosts. Their connection to him and thus their ability to appear to him slowly fades over time.

  • KevinArnold9

    i HOPE they get Ewan to play force ghost Obi Wan in the new movie. Just whiten his hair and beard.

  • Vadakin

    None of it rings true and if it is true, it’s utterly ridiculous. Luke has kids without us ever being introduced to a love interest previously? No.

    Skywalker line instead of Solo line? The Solo line IS the Skywalker line. Yeesh. If you want to call the new guy a Skywalker, go ahead. Have him fall out with Han and take his uncle’s name out of spite and have part of the story be about Han and his son reconciling. It ain’t that hard J.J.

    As for Boba, how would this change make Boba any better? Instead of being a clone son of Jango who was knocked into the Sarlaac Pit by a blind man, he’d be an impostor who killed the clone son…and was then knocked into the Sarlaac Pit by a blind man.

    Either way, Boba dies an idiotic and pointless death.

    Then there’s Obi-Wan. He probably does have family. Nephews and nieces. But so what? Obi-Wan left home at a very young age. Any relatives he had from that time are dead and their descendants would have had no contact with him. He was a Jedi. Attachments were forbidden. He wouldn’t have gone anywhere near his immediate or extended family. They’d be strangers, whatever blood they share.

    If any of this is true then Abrams has lost the plot.

  • Generation42

    I most surely hope that this news proves true and Luke is the face of Episode VII, with his son taking over and playing the protagonist in 8 (and 9, too!).

    All the better if the son keeps the name “Ben Skywalker.” It’s literally everything I have been hoping for in the new films.

    I’d love to see Luke and son sharing in a healthy father and son relationship. It’s something we haven’t really seen in Star Wars yet, and I’m really hoping we get the chance now.

    What I don’t want to see, though, is for “Ben” to fall to the dark side. I’d much rather he be the hero, defeating the new ‘Big Bad’ with help from the other lead characters. Maybe Leia and Han’s daughter can be one of the ensemble leads? That would be cool, too.

  • Vadakin

    What son? Did he have an affair with Mon Mothma we didn’t know about? Mara Jade doesn’t exist in this version of Star Wars, which means that if Luke has any children, it would be with someone we’ve never seen before with no setup for this mystery woman whatsoever. We actually saw Han and Leia’s relationship develop. As painful as it was to watch, we saw Anakin and Padme’s relationship develop. For Episode VII to come out with having a 20 year old kid without it ever being set up beforehand is just ludicrous.

    Why? The films won’t be based on them.

  • FL

    For the jedi, in the prequel era, love and marriage are clearly forbidden.
    They are similar to Religious Monks, all devoted to the Force and to compassion.
    Why Luke have to go against this clear and well defined path?
    And also, the original trilogy ends with Han and Leia in love. So it is ok for us to see them together 30 years later, with offsprings.
    On the other end, we will find the Last of the Jedi (the One that has help to hunt down the rest of the empire, the One that should be busy to complete his knowledge of the force, busy in rebuilt the New Jedi order, busy in rebuilt the New Republic) that goes against one clear principle of the old jedi order: married and with son(s)… With an unknown new character ..and everything has happened “off screen”!!
    This is a terrible start for the trilogy. GL is the only father of SW.
    J.J. has the only task to enrich and bring to life the original story from GL, and not to turn upside down the original plot envisioned by The Maker.

  • FL

    I agree!
    luke’s son and wife are the worst thing that can happen to SW.
    J.J. has completely lost the plot.

    I have really begin to fear that JJ has been a very bad choice x SW.

    Sequel Trilogy just have needed a great director capable to bring to life the original GL plot/story…but humble and a deeply respectful of the matter and the original story.
    JJ is just a superstar with delusion of grandeur…

  • Daniel Patrick Roche

    I fear that the fans are wrong about Lucas in the worst way regarding the original version of the films. If Lucas seriously did not want to release the original versions again but could, he probably would have not re-released the old home video transfers on DVD in the more recent package. I think the originals simply no longer exist.

    If you look at the materials regarding the making of the special editions, it shows Fox did what was common practice–i.e. store the negatives in the cheapest, not the best, way possible. Due to that, over a three decades, the original negatives were seriously degraded and had to be ‘digitally restored.’ What if they never printed a restored, pristine version of the originals? What if they only made prints AFTER adding in all the shit for the SE?

  • Vegas82

    They’re at least partially based on them or we wouldn’t be talking about Ben Skywalker, Jaina, Jacen and Anakin Solo. All of those characters were born in the EU.

  • Darth Hound

    I was just about to write that LOL! It was the first thing I thought when I heard it. RFR, Latino Reviews “Source” for the Force.

  • KaiChen

    But the “we” you are talking about is “we” fans, since no name of any new character has actually been revealed.

    In fact, what has already been divulged is that the films will not be based on the books.

    So it’s useless reading Star Wras books if you want to understand the new movies.

  • Darth Kaos

    Wait…why can’t Kasdan direct the Boba Fett spin-off?

  • Who cares

    Luke’s new jedi order is an evolution of the old jedi way. As the prequel trilogy suggests, the old jedi order was antiquated, inept, and not admired by society. Luke is somewhat of a dark jedi himself (he dresses in black, uses force choke, very emotional) and understands the need for progress so that the jedi order can survive in a post-galactic civil war era.. Luke’s order embraces emotion, and the need to control it. Unlike the old order which simply shuns it away.

    There will have been decades in between the OT and the ST.
    I’m sorry that your rules for the new films leave no room for growth (even important growth) to have happened off-screen. I understand your argument, I simply harbor no such issues.
    Whether it’s literally Mara Jade who is the mother of any potential son or daughter, or not, is completely irrelevant to me. If Luke has had any kids, they will have been born in the interim between trilogies, and that’s perfectly acceptable to me. If the identity of the mother of Luke’s kids is important to be touched upon for the specific needs of the story of Episodes 7, 8 or 9, rest assured, it will be addressed in one form or another. If not, it would leave a natural desire on the part of the audience to learn more (much as Obi-Wan’s few lines of dialog about Anakin did in Episode IV), leaving us with a terrific set-up for a stand-alone film about the mother. In such an instance, I’d love to see a spin-off about this mystery woman. How cool would that be? And besides, for all we know, Luke’s wife, if he’s ever had one, will be still be alive and well in the ST.
    It’s cool if you feel differently, but I don’t need everything spelled out for me. I have no problem with the idea that Luke will have lived a life in the years since we last left him. I mean, gee, if there are suddenly some brand new Jedi on the scene, who are now part of a New Jedi Order, will it be “ludicrous” simply because we didn’t see Luke recruit them in the OT? Of course not. And we can surmise that Luke met a woman, fell in love and fathered a child since we last saw him, just as simply as we can imagine that he went about the business of rebuilding the Order.
    If every important character or eventuality in the ST is required to have been spelled out in the OT beforehand, what a boring set of films we will be in store for. “Oh, Han and Leia will have the only kids because they were in love in the OT. Yeah, and Luke didn’t have a sweetheart then, so he cannot have fathered a child since.” How completely unimaginative, boring and, well, ludicrous.

  • Vadakin

    It’s not so much that he can’t have a life between trilogies. It’s that you would expect his life to be about training Jedi, not falling in love and having kids. Lucas himself said previously that in his mind, Luke never got married or anything like that and while he’s not directly involved anymore, the movies are based on his treatments.

    Dramatically, I also think it’s better if the Skywalker kids are Leia and Hans. It would help to create some tension between Luke and Han if Luke is the awesome uncle who is training them to be Jedi while Han finds himself living a life devoid of the swashbuckling swagger we’ve come to expect from him. He loves Leia and his kids of course but with nothing to smuggle and no empire to fight, rather than being content in retirement, Han would feel somewhat useless and would be itching to get some excitement. I have an image of the first time we see Han being in a seedy bar on Coruscant, getting himself and Luke into a bar fight with the patrons and being annoyed when Luke uses his Jedi powers to end the fight early.

    If Hans son is a Jedi who is having that adventures that he doesn’t get to have anymore and is just as stubborn and arrogant as he is, I can see tension between father and son. Perhaps the son could even take the Skywalker name, just to hurt his father. But when the son gets into trouble, Han is the first one to rush off to save him, simultaneously giving Han the adventure he craved and reconciliation with his son.

    That’s how I imagine Han’s story playing out. Of course I’m not writing the film and I’m sure the movie will be completely different.

    As for Luke, I don’t think he’d be married or have kids. He’d train Leia (though I don’t see her as a Jedi in the film) and her kids. I imagine a slightly older son of Leia’s in his twenties who is a knight and a younger, teen daughter who is still an apprentice to Luke. Luke would be somewhat regretful that the didn’t have a family of his own but he would be very close to his sisters kids. His life would be dedicated to restoring the Jedi, though not making the same mistakes the old Jedi did. Thus, I don’t think there would or should be an organised Jedi Order. Instead I think the Jedi would be more like wandering monks, helping out across the galaxy and following their own paths, only coming together when there’s a crisis.

    I also think Luke will and should die in the first film, probably saving the Solo kids from whatever evil threat they face. He’d go out in a blaze of glory but would obviously return as a ghost in sequels.

    As for Leia, I don’t think she’d be a Jedi or a politician. She would have trained under Luke and would have stayed with the restored Republic until the galaxy was stable but after everything she’s been through to save the galaxy, I think she’d be content to give up that life in favour of a simpler life with Han and their kids.

    I actually have a scene in mind where, following Luke’s death, her daughter would ask who will finish her training and after some careful thought, Leia would step forward and say that she will, thus setting Leia up as the leader of the Jedi against the new threat for the second two movies, with guidance from Luke.

    That’s basically how I’ve imagined the main characters being, 40 years later. But again, this is just me. Abrams will probably do something completely different.

    An unknown for Boba Fett, and we should never see his face without the helmet unless he is in shadow or very dim light. Boba Fett should always remain a mystery. The mystique of Fett is “Who is behind the armor”. Once you remove that mystery….you lose several layers of this character.

    Here’s my question…. Now that Boba Fett from the prequels is dead…..

    What about Temeura Morrison’s voice that Lucas put into the original trilogy replacing Bulloch’s voice? It now makes sense that the voice has to go back to the original voice.

    And if they are going to make that change….then perhaps…..dare I say it…..they can repair the original trilogies and take out the crap additions (Han/Greedo shooting together, Vader screaming “No”, The comical entry into Mos Espa with the Jawa’s swinging around, The droids walking in front of the shot of Kenobi and Luke being questions by the stormtroopers, The giant Rock that appears in front of R2-D2, etc.)

    Could we actually get the classics the way they were meant to be seen? One could only hope.

    I think the Boba Fett idea is ok, i kinda like Boba Fett being a clone though. He was the only clone who’s age was not accelerated though. They could just say all the other clones died by this time for whatever reason. I do hope they do a Old Republics movie, or a Darth Plagueis movie going forward.

    Not totally related, but I just finished watching Lost again and Abrams appears master of the flashblack. Has anyone given much thought that, perhaps, tween skywalkers might be cast for when Luke or Leia have flashbacks of childhood (ie betw ep 3+4)? In Lost, flashbacks were a great way to have people thrown into action while simultaneously developing great characters.

    They would never kill off the real Boba Fett, they can’t be that stupid. Can they???

  • Anakin Skywalker

    I hope this is true! Screw the minority of haters, it would only make sense to bring back Hayden.

  • Anakin Skywalker

    Nope. Worst news ever.

    I actually agree with you —- don’t think he’s a bad actor at all. He had very little to work with and was blamed for too much (scape-goat).

  • Anakin Skywalker

    I don’t think his acting or what he had to work with was an issue at all. The problem was that people, angry OT fanboys, didn’t understand the character or simply didn’t like him, a taste thing. But personally I stand by that his acting and performance was one of the best ever in the last decade, that is if you truly understand the character he had to play, you will understand why he did it so perfectly well.

    I don’t know how Anakin’s one good deed (killing the Emperor) makes up for his killing all of the Jedi children in Ep III but whatever.

    It’s not about balancing sins like Christians. It’s about what part of the force you’re bathed in when you actually die. He’d returned to the light side so he died as a Jedi.
