Star Wars: Episode 7 plot gossip continues
There have been plenty of ideas revolving around the direction of the next Star Wars movie with some suggesting the essence of the expanded universe will play a part in the upcoming start to the trilogy, although we are unsure about the escalating rumours about the plot. We have heard about a whole array of actors expressing their desire to be a part of the next film, and in some cases characters that have been killed off.
With that in mind, we understand the opportunity for specific Jedi masters to return giving guidance to their living compatriots and question whether there is a place for the likes of Liam Neeson, and Samuel L. Jackson to exist as the voice of reason for the young and impressionable Jedi. If this was the case, why didn’t Liam Neeson return as Qui-Gon Jinn in the prequels to help Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin?
Certain aspects of the original films like Obi Wan telling Darth “You can’t win, Vader. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” This has no real bearing other than becoming a voice in the head of Luke. So could we be seeing the return of other Jedi ghosts in the new trilogy?
In an interesting article on the Fashion and Style website they highlight a continuation of gossip about the Star Wars: Episode 7 plot and mention rumours about Princess Leia and Han Solo being married with a daughter, while other speculation suggests they have twins. In addition, they also mention interest from Samuel L. Jackson wanting a role. This gave us reason to question whether this could happen, maybe as another Jedi ghost or a totally new part.
According to reports Jackson wants to reprise his role as Mace Windu and maybe he did not die in the prequels. He mentions how he could come back as a surviving Jedi with one arm, although we are sure in great Star Wars tradition he could acquire and robotic one. Either way he has expressed his desire to be involved in Abram’s version.
Plenty of speculation has pointed fans in the direction of Leia and Solo having children and casting calls as well as the expanded universe have caused many to believe they will be twins, with specifics about characters to play the boy and girl parts. Enthusiasts will question whether they will both inherit the Jedi gene and whether Uncle Luke will be their trainer.
Are you expecting a marriage between Leia and Solo to be a prominent part of the next film or are you more concerned with an enthralling plot that is less about their love story and more about the essence of Star Wars? We could end up seeing some Jedi ghost holograms from the past, even those from the dark side.
