Darth Vader will cameo in “Star Wars : Episode VII” – that’s just one of the credible-sounding rumours floating around the ‘Galaxy’ this week in regards to the film’s plottular pointage.
*** SPOILER WARNING ***
For those whose internet connection has been wobbly the past couple of months, the film’s rumoured plot involves a couple of youngsters finding Luke Skywalker’s severed hand (the one he had sliced off in “Empire Strikes Back”). With the help of some of Skywalker’s old friends – namely Han Solo and Chewbacca – they trek off to find the Jedi.
And to the new revelations…
Latino Review says that Vader will appear in flashback. A search party headed by Han Solo rescues Luke Skywalker, who has been held captive since the events of “Return of the Jedi”. When they find him, Skywalker has a flashback involving the film’s main villains The Inquisitors (defenders of the Sith Order) have been doing nasty business since the Vader days; we’ll get to see them take orders from the black-suited one in the scene.
Another flashback scene will see Billie Lourd playing a young Princess Leia.
Also, the hand in the photo below? That belongs to the film’s main bad guy, according to Bad Ass Digest.
He wears a black robe. His eyes are deep red. And half of his face is metal. He’s a cyborg
And Indie Revolver have a concept art sketch of the guy – holding Vader’s helmet :
Bad Ass Digest says that when the film begins Solo and Chewbacca are no longer getting about in the Millennium Falcon (it now belongs to Oscar Isaac’s character), but a Super Star Destroyer.
In addition, Indie Revolver has published some sketches of what Han Solo will look like in the movie – how you like those Imperial Rank garbs, peeps!?
Lots of stuff trickling out plot-wise in relation to “Episode VII” so no doubt we’ll be hearing a lot more as the weeks inch closer to the release.
