In a surprise turn of events, the site Reuters has posted what probably seems to be the first real plot point for the upcoming STAR WARS Episode VII.
While their article mostly is talking about the “Coming Mayan Apocalypse” this Friday, 24-year-old consultant Alex Markovitz, jokingly stating that:
“If it is the end of the world, hopefully Luke will come and blow up that Death Star”
But eventually the article goes into revealing the possible plot point.
“Yavin 4 and the rebel base return to the Star Wars plot in the forthcoming Episode VII, announced in October by the Walt Disney Co, in which Skywalker comes back to the planet to build a Jedi Knight academy. However, fans said that Disney will likely film those scenes in a studio rather than return to Tikal.”
Now if this is true, it does seemingly confirm several prominent rumors about Mark Hamill’s involvement and the plot about the Jedi Academy having a key role in the script, but while its technically not the most credible of sources, for now its going to be considered just a rumor.
