Star Wars 7 Officially Titled. J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars: Episode 7 has been given an official title. Unlike the titles for most if not all of the prequel films (Revenge of the Sith was an excellent title), the title for this film is simplistic and more than a little appropriate (ushering in a new day for Star Wars). Star Wars: Episode 7 will be entitled Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Now for the current rumors surrounding the plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens:
Like I said, at the end of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker is thought to be the last Jedi. However, if you’re going to make a new trilogy of films, there need to be more and those people need adversaries. The latest rumor is, between films, Skywalker has become the most powerful Jedi ever, possibly because he’s the only person using the Force. He goes into hiding because he’s so overwhelmed by his powers and the path they may lead him on.
John Boyega’s character is likely a runaway Stormtrooper who is confused and strong with the Force. Over the course of the film he, along with Daisy Ridley’s character, will join up with Han Solo and Chewbacca to try and find Luke to solve some kind of mystery. A mystery that may or may not involve a missing lightsaber.
Also, if The Force is awakening, that means the Dark Side is rumbling, too. With Darth Vader and the Emperor dead at the end of Return of the Jedi, someone or something new will have to start using the Dark Side of the Force. The rumor is it’s a character (or characters) who have some kind of ancient allegiance to the Sith Lords of old.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Max von Sydow, and Warwick Davis.
