STAR WARS EPISODE VII Plot Details; The Search For Luke Skywalker?

June 27, 20140 Comments

Latino Review has posted another article about the possible delays in filming due to Harrison Ford’s broken leg and some possible plot details. Apparently STAR WARS EPISODE VII will NOT be delayed due to Ford’s injury. Producer Kathleen Kennedy and director J.J. Abrams want the release date pushed to May 4th, 2016 but Bob Iger (chairman of The Walt Disney Company) is not allowing it.

AICN reported: “And this is a huge problem because Han Solo is pretty much the main character of EPISODE VII, leading a galaxy-wide search party for Luke Skywalker.”

Badass Digest reported: “I had heard that Solo is the star of this Star Wars and that the old smuggler would be taking the new kids on a journey across the galaxy to find an old friend who had gone missing.”

Outside of trying to locate Luke, the plot will also feature a storyline involving John Boyega and Daisy Ridley’s characters, Thomas and Rachel (temporary names). Back when they were holding fan auditions, the roles were for a Thomas and Rachel so it matches.

“We have heard that Thomas starts the film on the side of the villains. Thomas is shot down over Tatooine and he is injured from the crash. The things we heard from Abu Dhabi about a crashed ship is rumored to have been Thomas’ fighter. Rachel rescues him from the wreckage and the elements of the sandy planet. Over the course of their “unlikely pairing,” Thomas sees the reality of the universe and he defects from the side of the villains and decides to help Rachel for saving his life. However, things are not easy for the character because unlike most of the rebels we’ve met in the series, none were traitors, they were always on the side of right from the beginning. However, it appears Rachel and Thomas have an innocent flirtation in their first film with hints at romance in the future episodes. I often hear Thomas is a Jedi in the film, but I am beginning to think he might start that journey midway through Star Wars: Episode VII, which is why he has a lightsaber according to many reports.” – Making Star Wars
