Possible 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Villain News

By: Dave Clark

Seems like Latino Review has scooped some news about the plot of Star Wars: Episode VII. Its dealing mostly with the identity of the villains of at least the first installment of this new trilogy. Beware, if they're correct, this could be spoilery but for now I'm taking this news as strictly a rumor.

To catch you up on what we think we know about Episode VII’s plot thus far: Luke’s lightsaber (and maybe hand but probably not) crash lands on a planet leading Daisy Ridley and John Boyega on a search for Luke, which leads them to Han and Chewie, who aren’t in the Millennium Falcon because Oscar Isaacs has it. The party is looking for Luke who has been MIA since Jedi. But Luke isn’t hiding, Luke is a captive.

Let’s push our understanding past the first act and into the second act of the story.

What we’ve been circling around are the villains of the piece, occasionally coming up with buzzing from the set about bounty hunters or “Sith Witches,” and those aren’t entirely inaccurate, but the truth is much more…


The Inquisitors are the villains of Star Wars: Episode VII and the name of the main villain in Star Wars: Rebels. They seem to be loosly based on the now-deleted Expanded Universe Inquistors mixed with the hardended Sith look of Rebels’ villain. The Inquisitors are defenders of the Sith Order and they’ve been around for a long time. Just how long is what turns Episode VII’s story on it’s head.

When our hero(es) find Luke and the Inquisitors are revealed, Luke’s explanation on the history of this order is going to trigger a flashback to explain that the Inquisitors have been tied into the Sith all along.

Remember when we broke Billie Lourd’s casting (Lourd is the biological daughter of Carrie Fisher)? That’s not so she can play a Solo kid, it’s so she can play a much younger Princess Leia than we’ve ever seen before in this flashback.

he Inquisitors will be seen serving Darth Vader in flashback.

Yes, Darth Vader will be on screen, briefly, in Star Wars: Episode VII. We’re not done with the dark prince of the Sith quite yet.

That’s all for now, but it’s now exceedingly clear that the Sequel Trilogy requires a retroactive continuity adjustment to the other two trilogies and Rebels is going to end up being much, much more important than we anticipated.
