Really looking forward to this movie when it comes out in December 2014.

If anyone hears of any movie plots that are going on in the background then post them here.

The little bit of gossip I have is that Luke Skywalker might be training a new Padawan.

It seems that the Millenium Falcon will return in Star Wars Episode VII, but its captain won't be in it in the next few weeks. Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Han Solo in the Star Wars series, was taken to the hospital after being injured by the door of the Millenium Falcon, the spacecraft that his chracter pilots in the original trilogy. According to Hollywood Reporter, Ford will be missing eight weeks of shooting.




The Millennium Falcon is the stereotypical example of a trusty ship. It was able to make the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs, it helped destroy not one but two Death Stars, and it has long been a fixture in any discussion about the best spaceship in science fiction history. But now, the legendary ship has let its captain down for the first time. Harrison Ford has not only injured his ankle on the door of his famous starship while filming Star Wars: Episode VII, but apparently in the injury is worse than we initially thought.

Yahoo has acquired a statement from Ben Ford, the actor's son, in which he mentions the possibility of surgery being involved in his father's recovery. Specifically, a plate and screws might need to be put into Harrison Ford's ankle, which obviously would force him off his feet for some time while shooting continues as planned. Ford's son seems to think that Star Wars: Episode VII can easily accommodate his father's injuries with an altered shooting schedule or some liberal usage of close ups.

Ben Ford is probably on the right track with that assumption, though if I were J.J. Abrams, I'd would try and pull a reverse Scarlett Johansson (a la The Avengers: Age Of Ultron) and move all scenes where Harrison Ford needs to be in action/on his feet to the end of the shoot. One can probably safely assume that a production this size has many parts moving at once, so maybe they can focus on some other pieces of the puzzle until Harrison Ford recovers. After all, Star Wars: Episode VII isn't just about Han Solo, and with the traditionally multi-pronged stories that the series likes to tell, one might guess that they could switch over to someone else's portion of the story. Provided, of course, that schedules and budget permit it.

Up until now, J.J. Abrams has shown that he can handle the pressures of continuing a franchise with a film as huge as Star Wars: Episode VII. How he handles this hiccup in production will probably be one of the ultimate tests as to how he can keep things moving, while not having to sacrifice Han Solo's screen time in the film. Of course, the next big question in everyone's minds would be, can Harrison Ford recover in time to finish filming Star Wars Episode VII?

While the man has kept himself in action movie-ish shape for a good long while, he is still 71 years old. Unless Harrison Ford is a real life Wolverine, the time it takes him to heal from his ankle injury may be longer than it would have been were he a younger man. The worst case scenario could be that we may see Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker picking up some of the slack that the injury may leave on the set. In any case, we hope that there are no other harmful injuries on the Star Wars: Episode VII set, and we wish Harrison Ford a speedy recovery.

Seems Carrie Fisher is getting herself back into tremendous shape.

She must have used the Force.

Harrison Ford leaves London hospital in wheelchair post-surgery

The ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ actor’s surgery was successful on Thursday after he injured his leg on set June 12. Saturday he left the hospital and is said to be heading to the U.S. to begin rehab.

Harrison Ford isn't exactly ready to laugh it up like a fuzzball just yet.

Although the "Star Wars: Episode VII" star successfully completed surgery to repair his broken leg Thursday, photos surfaced of him in a wheelchair leaving the central London hospital where the procedure was done on Saturday, reports the Daily Mail.

It's the first time Ford has been spotted since sustaining the injury on June 12.

"His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," his rep said in a statement obtained by the Daily News on June 19. "He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."

The 71-year-old actor, who is reprising his role as Han Solo in the film, is reportedly returning to the U.S. to begin rehabilitation.

He may not be able to return to the movie set for six to eight weeks after he was injured at Britian's Pinewood Studios when a hydraulic door reportedly fell on him from his iconic spaceship, The Millennium Falcon.

Following the accident, he was airlifted to nearby John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

The highly anticipated film is set to release on Dec. 18, 2015, and Lucasfilm and Disney announced the filming is still on track despite Ford's injury.

However, since the incident director J.J. Abrams is said to have had to "juggle things, bring some scenes forward and push others back," a source told London's Mirror.

I will almost certainly go see Episode VII in the theater, with a sense of foreboding with every step from the parking lot to my seat. It is a generational obligation, what with having stood in a line that circled around the building twice to the Episode IV, back before we knew it was Episode IV. Eps. I through III almost, but not quite, beat this out of me, but I will try again in a fit of masochism.

That being said, J. J. Abrams has finally managed to break my similar feelings towards Star Trek. So perhaps he will free me from this monkey on my back.

Just please for the love of all that is holy, promise me there will be no Jar Jar and no Ewoks. That's all I ask.

Could it be that actor Tom Cruise is going to be starring in Star Wars: Episode VII and Harrison Ford will be written out of it? Possibly, as Tom Cruise has been in talks with his good friend, J.J. Abrams, to have a cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII, and veteran actor, Harrison Ford, will either need to be filmed from the waist up or written out of the movie, altogether, because of the broken leg he suffered when the pneumatic door of the Millennium Falcon fell on it.

Rather than possibly delay the scheduled release date of the film, it might be more economically feasible for Lucasfilms and Disney to write out the Han Solo character, though his absence will likely be somewhat awkward, unless further rewrites of the script are done.

On June 19, one of Harrison Ford’s reps announced that the surgery on the star’s broken leg had been “successful” and added that Ford “will begin rehab shortly.” That is good news, but it is expected that Harrison Ford might have to be in rehab for 6-8 weeks. Even then, if he appears in the movie, he will probably have to be filmed just from the waist up.

An accident involving the pneumatic door of the iconic Han Solo spaceship, the Millennium Falcon, was responsible for breaking Harrison Ford’s leg. The door of the vehicle came down upon his leg, breaking it. Earlier reports had stated that Ford’s ankle had been injured on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, but Ford’s publicist later announced that it was not his ankle that was injured, but his leg.

According to The Sun and other sources, Tom Cruise, 51, has been in talks with J.J. Abrams to have a cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII, and it appears as if they have reached an agreement. Cruise could very well have a small, but conceivably important, role in the J.J. Abrams’ directed movie.

A source told The Sun that Tom Cruise “has been in London for over a week” meeting with Abrams and other execs about making a cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII. This could very well be the case, as Cruise has known J.J. Abrams for years and Abrams was the director of the Cruise flick Mission: Impossible 3, released in 2006. Abrams was also one of the co-producers of another Tom Cruise movie, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which hit theaters in 2011.

The source who was interviewed by The Sun also stated that J.J. Abrams “loves working with Tom whenever he gets the chance.”

Tom Cruise in and Harrison Ford out of Star Wars: Episode VII?

Much speculation has revolved around a meeting that was called on Monday morning at Pinewood Studios, in Buckinghamshire, England. Details of the meeting of Disney and Lucasfilms execs have not been revealed, but some of the rumors circulating suggest that one of the topics of the meeting was how to incorporate the Han Solo character in Star Wars: Episode VII without delaying the scheduled release date for the movie of December 18, 2015.

There might have also been talk about the best approach to writing the Han Solo character out of the script, to avoid the more unpleasant necessity that might otherwise occur, of pushing back production and delaying the movie’s release date. This could be a very real possibility, if the sources who spoke to the fan site, Jedi News, can be believed. However, writing out Han Solo from the script could result in an outraged reaction from Star Wars fans, who have been eagerly anticipating the reunion of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), ever since the news was announced that they would all be in Star Wars: Episode VII.

These same fans might be ticked off, though, as well, by any delay in the scheduled release date of Star Wars: Episode VII. Also, Disney would rather not push back the scheduled release dates of other Star Wars movies that are in the planning stages, like a Bobba Fett movie, scheduled for release in 2016, and Star Wars: Episode VIII, due to hit theaters in 2017. Disney Studios has plans for further Star Wars movies all the way through the year 2020.

Another topic of the Monday meeting likely was how best to make use of Tom Cruise in Star Wars: Episode VII. If it is deemed unfeasible to use the acting talents of Harrison Ford because of his broken leg, Tom Cruise might help provide a bit of the missing star power, and his role in the movie could very well be expanded.

Cruise is a fan of science fiction, and he is no stranger to having acted in science fiction flicks before. Other science fiction movies that Tom Cruise has starred in are Minority Report, War of the Worlds, Oblivion, and his current box office hit, Edge of Tomorrow.

Besides Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher returning in the roles that they made famous in the original Star Wars trilogy — assuming that Ford will still be playing Han Solo, that is — three other actors from the original trilogy will also be in Star Wars: Episode VII. They are Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, and Kenny Baker.

Other actors who will be making their own Star Wars history with the film will include Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Max von Sydow, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhall Gleeson, and Oscar Isaac. John Williams, who composed the music for the original Star Wars trilogy, will also be back, composing the music for this sequel. J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan co-wrote the screenplay.

Harrison Ford is back on two feet (almost) with prosthetic peg leg after breaking foot on set while filming Star Wars

By Mia De Graaf


Harrison Ford has been seen hobbling through London in a heavy-duty leg brace as he races his way back to fitness to continue filming Star Wars: Episode VII.

The veteran actor was hospitalised last month after breaking his foot during one of the first shoots of the latest episode.

Producers rushed to reshuffle the entire filming schedule as the 71-year-old was forced into a wheelchair.

Despite a blurry, leaked image of the Millennium Falcon, there's been few tangible details released from J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII set.

So, on June 30, when Clerks director Kevin Smith posted an Instagram photo teasing that he had visited the set at the U.K.'s Pinewood Studios, Star Wars fans clamored to tease any hint of what Abrams had been planning for George Lucas' universe.

Smith -- a dedicated Star Wars fan who earlier wrote a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter detailing his dream for the new film -- quickly dashed hopes by noting that he had signed a non-disclosure agreement. But he liked what he saw: "all I can share are this old Bantha-Tracks subscriber's tears and snotty nose of joy. The Force is WITH this movie."

STORY: How 'Star Wars' Director J.J. Abrams Kept the Cast Secret

The Instagram post left plenty of unanswered questions. And the director has addressed a few of them, speaking at length during an appearance at Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival in Switzerland on Saturday.

"[Abrams] had sent me an email out of the blue while they were shooting in Abu Dhabi last month," Smith said, explaining the Star Wars invite.

"So we go to the set and they're actually shooting, and they're shooting -- and this is what I can't tell you what they were shooting -- But what I saw I absolutely loved," he said. "It was tactile, it wasn't a series of f---ing green and blue screens in which later on digital characters would be added. It was there it was happening."

"I saw uniforms, I saw artillery that I haven't seen since I was a kid. I saw them shooting an actual sequence in a set that is real -- I walked across the set, there were explosions -- and it looked like a shot right out of an f--ing Star Wars movie," he said. Smith also got a tour of "Stage M," where he he saw the full scale Millennium Falcon and stepped inside to walk around.

Abrams is "building a tactile world, a world you can touch. And he's replicating it with all the love of somebody that has the world's greatest collection of Star Wars figures," Smith gushed.

The Empire may have been defeated back in Return Of The Jedi, with the Death Star obliterated and Emperor Palpatine sent wailing to his doom. But it seems its iconic henchman will still return in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Harrison Ford leg injury halts Star Wars production for two weeks

Updated 2 hours 26 minutes ago


Related Story: Han Solo's ankle on ice after Star Wars set accident


Harrison Ford's recuperation from surgery after breaking his leg on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII will force a two-week hiatus in filming, the Walt Disney Studios said.

News of the stoppage comes after Disney initially said filming would continue on schedule while Ford recovered.

But shooting is on track to wrap up in the northern Autumn, the studio said, and the release date remains December 2015.

"In August, the team will take a brief, two-week hiatus while adjustments to the current production schedule are made as actor Harrison Ford recovers from a leg injury," Disney said in a statement posted on Sunday on the website StarWars.com.



Star Wars Episode VII

Star Wars veterans along with new faces have joined the cast of Episode VII, set after the fall of the iconic Darth Vader and the evil Empire. Learn more about the cast here.


Ford, 71, was injured on the set of the reboot of George Lucas's blockbuster franchise last month during filming in England.

The best actor Oscar-nominee for his role in Witness in 1986 is reprising his role as Han Solo in the film that is being directed by J.J. Abrams.

Actress Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will also reprise their roles in the film and will be joined by Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac.

Disney also announced two new actors, Briton Pip Andersen and American Crystal Clarke, who were selected from more than 37,000 people during open casting calls, will have roles in the film.

It is the first of three new movies that will continue the saga created by George Lucas, after Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4.05 billion.

Film fans have been left tantalising clues about what some scenes in the new Star Wars movie will look like – because the production crew left equipment behind in one of the locations.

Last week cast and crew descended on Puzzlewood in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, for a shoot, leading to intense speculation and excitement about how that location would feature in next year’s hotly anticipated blockbuster.

Now, pictures have emerged of pieces of film kit scattered around the beauty spot, the crew having moved out.

The production recently made news when Harrison Ford broke his foot during filming. After initially being confined to a wheelchair, he is now walking on crutches

The knotted trees and winding paths of the forest, a popular family tourist attraction, were said to have been the inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien's enchanted woodlands in Lord of the Rings.

More recently they have been used to film the BBC fantasy dramas Dr Who, Merlin and Atlantis.

Fans have speculated Puzzlewood could be a return to the lush green territory inhabited by Yoda or the Forest Moon of Endor, inhabited by Ewoks.



Some fans have speculated that the Forest of Dean could be used to represent the Forest Moon of Endor

For the original Star Wars trilogy, the spectacular redwood forests of northern California were used for the Forest Moon of Endor.

And the frozen landscape of Hoth was represented by the northern wilderness of Norway - which was so cold in real life that some scenes were shot out of the crew's hotel doorway.

Few details about the set have been released, but Kevin Smith - the director of Clerks (1994) and Dogma (1999) - gave a few tantalising details after a recent visit.

In a Q&A session at the Neuchatel International Film Festival in Switzerland, he said: 'It was tactile; it wasn't a series of f****** green and blue screens in which later on digital characters would be added. It was there; it was happening.

'It's like Field of Dreams,' he continued. 'And if [director J.J. Abrams] builds it, we’re all going to come because it's amazing. It looks fantastic.

'I cried, and I hugged that guy.'

Star Wars will be hoping the scene they create at Forest of Dean is better than the last time the legendary films were shot in an English forest.

Whippendell Woods near Watford, Hertfordshire, were used as the meeting point between The Phantom Menace's Jedi knights and Jar Jar Binks - probably the least beloved Star Wars character of all time.

'Star Wars' will feature Carrie Fisher's daughter as Leia in flashback scenes

Carrie Fisher's 21-year-old daughter Billie Lourd will appear in "Star Wars: Episode VII," in flashback scenes as Princess Leia.

Latino Review -- which, for some reason, gets a lot of "Star Wars" scoops -- reports Lourd will make her acting debut in the film.

Sounds like the hairbuns will be making a comeback.

Lourd is the daughter of Fisher and Hollywood agent Bryan Lourd. She's the 57-year-old Fisher's only child.

British publications The Sun and Daily Mail have reported Lourd joined her mother on the set in June.

Despite Harrison Ford suffering a broken leg that will delay filming for two weeks in August, the film is still scheduled to be released Dec. 18, 2015.

http://www.thestar.ie/star/the-empire-kicks-back-star-wars-crew-relax-on-final-day-of-filming-in-ireland-50874/

IT WAS the respite of the Jedi yesterday as the secretive Star Wars crew finally kicked back and relaxed on their final day of filming in Ireland.

Shooting on Star Wars: Episode VII got underway on historic island Skellig Michael off the coast of Portmagee, Co Kerry, on Monday — and was shrouded in secrecy for the first two days.

The Irish Aviation Authority had granted the filmmakers’ request to impose a three-mile-radius no-fly zone above the island, while Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe had agreed to a two-mile exclusion zone in the surrounding waters.

Some people hired to work on the film had even been misled in advance to think it was actually a documentary about puffins.

Meanwhile, locals were bound by confidentiality contracts to ensure they didn’t leak spoilers about what was being filmed — while the movie’s stars managed to keep out of sight.

Set

However, that all changed yesterday as delighted fans finally got close-up views of stars Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley, as well as director JJ Abrams, as they relaxed on the final day of the shoot.

The A-listers were spotted in the south Kerry town of Waterville, a 20km drive away from where filming was taking place on the Skellig Islands.

They had been staying in the local Butler Arms Hotel.

Star wars, luke skywalker
LUKE WHO’S HERE: Mark Hamill with a copy of Empire yesterday

Abrams (48) — married to Irish-American PR executive Katie McGrath — had gone to great lengths to keep his set free from prying eyes, and a photo he had posed for with a local that was posted online was even taken down, allegedly at the request of the production company.

However, the creator of TV show Lost looked relaxed as he left his hotel yesterday before soaking up the sun on the seafront in Waterville.

English former Casualty starlet Daisy Ridley (21) was also photographed leaving the hotel — where Hamill was also spotted hanging out.

The actor, who played Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, was snapped holding a copy of movie mag Empire.

Research

And the 62-year-old had clearly been doing some research on the opposition — as the issue’s cover story was about upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Although Hamill was only seen in public yesterday, speculation was already rife that he was among the stars on set in Kerry — after his wife Marilou and adult children Chelsea, Griffin and Nathan had ventured out in the previous days.

The cast are now set to return to their base in Pinewood, London.

The revelation yesterday that they had been staying in Waterville came just two weeks after the Kerry town hit the headlines when local cafe owner Peter Fitzgerald placed a sign in his window stating that “loud Americans” weren’t welcome.

Chairman of the Waterville Business Association Albert Walsh last night told The Star he was delighted members of the cast and crew had decided to stay there.

And he said the fact the celebs chose the town also helped to put the controversy of the “no loud Americans” sign to bed.

Visitors

“It’s great that some of the Star Wars crew are staying here — we’ve become well used to having famous people stay here down through the years,” he said.

“Tiger Woods has been a regular, as has Catherine Zeta Jones, and we are a very welcoming town for Americans.

“The controversy over the sign hasn’t affected us that much — 90 per cent of American visitors have told us that it wasn’t a reflection of the real Waterville.

“The owner of the cafe has now taken the sign down, even though he has said he does not regret it.”

'Star Wars' Filming in Ireland Exposes Birds to the Dark Side

The J.J. Abrams movie is shooting on the site of important bird breeding grounds.


July 30, 2014 By John R. Platt


John R. Platt covers the environment, technology, philanthropy, and more for Scientific American, Conservation, Lion, and other publications.

Conservationists fear the filming of the new Star Wars movie on a remote Irish island this week could create more than a phantom menace for thousands of nesting birds.

The island of Skellig Michael features stunning alien-like cliffs and landscapes, making it a great set for director J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. Skellig Michael is also home to six ground-nesting bird species that are currently in the height of their breeding season.

"Skellig Michael is internationally important for six seabird species," said Stephen Newton, senior conservation officer at BirdWatch Ireland, one of the organizations that has criticized the plan to film on the island.

Three of those species—Atlantic puffins, Manx shearwaters, and European storm petrels—nest below the ground, where they can't be seen. The shearwaters and petrels are also nocturnal, which makes them hard to observe and track.

"They nest in burrows, holes, and crevices and only visit their nests during the hours of darkness to feed their young," Newton said.

That makes it hard to protect the birds' nests because even locating them is a challenge. "How can the authorities safeguard these birds from disturbance when they do not know where they are?" Newton asked.

The Irish Naval Service is doing more to safeguard the film set from prying eyes than anyone appears to be doing to protect the birds. The navy has set up a two-mile exclusion zone around Skellig Michael, effectively sealing off the island from tourists and fans hoping to get a sneak peek of the movie. The Irish Examiner reported that even the ferrymen who were contracted to shuttle the film crew back and forth needed to get special security clearances.




The United Nations has also wondered about the production's impact on the island. Skellig Michael is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a designation established nearly 20 years ago to protect the island's seventh-century Christian monastery.

A UNESCO spokesperson told The Irish Times that the organization has requested information on how and why permission was granted to film on the island. The National Monuments Service in Ireland said it would provide a report to UNESCO "later this week." Filming is only scheduled to take place for three days, so the crew will be on to its next location by the end of the week.

None of the six bird species nesting on the island is endangered, but all face declining populations, and Newton pointed out that the Skellig Michael is critical to their future.

These Birds Are Dying So Rich, Powerful Men Can Improve Their Sex Lives

"Skellig has at least 10,000 pairs of storm petrels and is one of the largest colonies in the world," he said.

BirdWatch Ireland had requested information on how the production company would safeguard the birds, but it has not yet been provided.

For its part, the Irish Film Board, which approved the shoot, said the crew's week on Skellig Michael "has been designed to specifically avoid disturbance of breeding birds on the island."

All the same, conservationists are definitely feeling a disturbance in the Force, as the production's long-term impact on the island remains to be seen.

This would have looked interesting if it had stayed in the original version of The Empire Strikes Back.

Must have been before George Lucas decided they were brother and sister!

Might have been a better version of the trilogy if they were not.

Leia gives Han a going over and then rejects him for Luke. Now that would have been some sort of ending.

Darth Vadar apparently looked like a storm trooper in a local Kerry pub after filming such was the onslaught he received of Puffin dung raining down on him during filming. 'Those feather-headed fools won't look so happy when I introduce them to my little friend Mr. Lightsaber,' he supposedly shouted before downing a double Jameson before heading for the nearest laundromat.

Star Wars: Episode VII Star Daisy Ridley Sticking Around For The Rest Of The Trilogy image

It seems like we're always learning something new about Star Wars: Episode VII, and the particular details about it that are being shrouded in secrecy. While we've been drip fed little things here and there, and nothing has been confirmed or officially announced involving the story, or more importantly who the scads of cast members new to the franchise are playing. One such player is none other than Daisy Ridley, the relative unknown who was revealed as being part of the film in the first cast reveal. While we don't know exactly who she's playing, we do know that she's looking to keep playing the same part in Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX.

It's Deadline reporting that Daisy Ridley is penciled in for Rian Johnson's later episodes in the new Star Wars trilogy, which we imagine means she must have really impressed the top brass at Disney and Bad Robot during her original audition. However, this also has us wondering if this new announcement means that her future will be poised for, shall we say... projects of a "Solo" nature?

Assuming the rumors are true, and Han Solo/Leia Organa Solo will be pulling the majority of focus in the Star Wars: Episode VII, we can then begin to assume that Daisy Ridley's function is going to be one of equal importance further down the line. If this is true, then could it be possible that she is a close associate, if not a directly related member, of the Solo family? Rumored details do suggest a connection between Solo and either Ridley or John Boyega.

Unfortunately for her co-stars, this means that the world's eyes are now going to be focused on any similar future announcements of Star Wars cast contracts. If Gwendoline Christie IS in fact playing an Imperial officer in Star Wars: Episode VII, she'd better hope she receives the same sort of good news about a multi-picture deal if she wants to stick around the franchise.

Right about now, Rian Johnson is hard at work writing and planning his vision for Star Wars: Episodes VIII and IX - which perhaps means he's spending a lot of time looking at Star Wars: Episode VII and really focusing on what Daisy Ridley's mystery character is like and how she thinks. Whatever it is this franchise sees in the actress, let's also hope they see in Oscar Isaac. The man is seriously underrated, and this is the type of gig that could suit him tremendously well.

Star Wars: Episode VII comes to our galaxy on December 18th, 2015; so there's plenty of time for the patented Abrams Mystery Box to keep fueling our speculative minds with goodies, tidbits, and red herrings. It's part of the fun, kids!

Star Wars Episode 7: What’s Luke Skywalker been up to for the last 30 years?

 

Star Wars: Whats Luke Skywalker been up to for the last 30 years?We don’t know if Laura has friends like the robot C3PO, pictured with Luke Skywalker

It’s a fair question, and one that’s certain to occupy the thoughts of millions of cinema and Star Wars fans as the release of Episode VII approaches.

What has the former moisture farmer turned saviour of the galaxy been doing, and where will he be when we rejoin his story over three decades later?

The American satirical magazine MAD asks that question – they’ve been lampooning Star Wars for almost four decades – and suggest among other things that he’s become a Dork Lord of the Sith or a roadie for Max Rebo.

But all joking aside, what are the options for our heroic Jedi and what could he have been doing in the intervening years?

1. He could have started a new Jedi Order

Star Wars starring Mark Hamill as Luke SkywalkerHas he been re-building the depleted ranks of Jedi? (Picture: FOX)

There’s every chance that after the end of Return of the Jedi that, with Yoda, Ben and Anakin’s help, he could have started the search for fresh Jedi to train and rebuilt the Jedi Order.

Logically it would take far longer than Luke’s lifespan to return the Jedi to their pre-Revenge of the Sith glory, but nevertheless it’s a logical thought that he would attempt to do this, despite this already being done in the Expanded Universe of the novels, games and comics.

2. He left the Alliance and became a hermit

His destiny was largely fulfilled. From the first time we see him onscreen as an adult in A New Hope, his ‘mission’ was to defeat Vader and the Emperor at all costs.

Yoda and Ben even went to the extremes of hiding the truth about his parentage and his twin sister, so as not to distract him from this mission. In the end all went, pretty much, to plan, but Luke could feel that with the death of Palpatine and the final heroic act of Anakin that his own mission was complete.

Perhaps a galaxy free of Sith AND Jedi is a safer place to be. After all, the two greatest conflicts in galactic history have been orchestrated by Jedi and Sith.

3. He’s been captured and is held against his will

Mark Hamill will star in Star Wars 7 as Luke SkywalkerMark Hamill sports a beard – but what does it mean for the new Star Wars film? (Picture: Getty Images)

Look at the recent images of Mark Hamill. He certainly has the ‘Crazy Old Ben’ beard going on, but more recent images show him as increasingly unkempt.

What if an agent of evil has managed to overpower an unsuspecting Luke and is holding him captive? Unlikely, but not unrealistic.

With the previous lineage of Jedi and Sith now broken, perhaps it’s time for a new breed to enter the galactic arena, and what better way to send out a message of intent than to have the savior of the galaxy as a prisoner?

All conjecture, but Luke has been up to something in the 35 years since Return of the Jedi and with the sidelining of the old Expanded Universe we know that future most likely doesn’t include children with Mara Jade, rebuilding the Jedi or any of the other tales that took place.

Whatever his past entails, we’ll all be lining up to watch it in just over 490 days time when December 18 2015 arrives.

Warning: Article contains potential spoilers

Star Wars Episode VII plot details leaked?Rumour alert: Plot details for Star Wars Episode VII have surfaced online (Picture: Lucasfilm)

Some possible plot details for Star Wars Episode VII have apparently leaked online.

Now is probably a good time to warn you about spoilers, so those who don’t want to know anything about Episode VII should turn away now.

Badass Digest reports that the new film, directed by JJ Abrams, will focus on a search for Luke Skywalker who has been missing for 30 years.

Additionally there will also be a storyline concerning an ‘ice planet’ where villains are busy building a ‘super weapon’ that can nuke entire solar systems.

The film site adds that the plot will have a touch of A New Hope about it but ‘things that seem familiar may not be as familiar as you think – don’t assume that every ice or desert planet in the galaxy has already been visited.’

The film is slated for release on December 18, 2015.

It has been a hectic few days and the Star Wars news is just plying up. So instead of giving them all as separate stories we decided to group them all together. This might be become standard practice in the future since we are now under 500 days until Episode VII’s premiere.
We have a Tweet from JJ Abrams, some Millennium Falcon interior pictures, and the winner of the Star Wars: The Force for Change campaign.

Let’s check out the Falcon photos and another picture, shall we?
From Mint in the Box.com: “The official information about Star Wars Episode VII are scarce, so what better than a little spoiler with new images of the film set.

Indeed it is through someone you know about Facebook these 3 photos of the interior of Millennium Falcon have leaked, and a fourth strangely resembling the corridors of a Star Destroyer. Anyway it's like back home” (translated).
To thank all the fans Episode VII’s director, JJ Abrams, Tweeted the message below. In typical JJ fashion it wasn’t just any old hand holding that note. Many are speculating that it was in fact Luke Skywalker’s mechanical hand. Are the rumours true? Did Luke leave his friends and the Rebellion behind to go into hiding?

There's a number of caveats to a newly-released image of Mark Hamill standing outside a Star Wars: Episode VII sign at Pinewood Studios, but that shouldn't deter fans from getting excited by what appears to be Hamill's new Luke Skywalker look. Check it out below!

The photo was snapped by Hamill's son, Nathan Hamill, and also features an appearance by "Lava Bear," one of Nathan Hamill's artistic creations (learn more at his official site).

It was first hinted that the elder Hamill would have a beard in the new film back in June, although the facial hair has certainly evolved since then into a look rather reminiscent of Sir Alec Guiness' Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Bear in mind, the J.J. Abrams film has been on production hiatus due to Harrison Ford's injury and that there's no hard proof that this is anything close to the final look we'll be seeing on the big screen come December 18, 2015. Still, for fans who have been waiting decades for the return of Luke Skywalker, this particular image is bound to create some big smiles.
