Mark Hamill Addresses Those Huge Episode VII Spoilers

fb share tweet share

FatherSonThere’s been no shortage of potential spoilers for Star Wars: Episode VII, ranging from leaked concept art to freaking drone surveillance footage. But last week a true whopper hit the interwebs, a potentially massive reveal on the order of “Luke, I am your father.” We’re talking here about a twist so big that it’s sparked a fierce debate about whether anyone should be reporting it at all. Well, the story just got a shade more surreal with the revelation that, whether the rumor proves to be accurate, it definitely isn’t unprecedented, and nor is it the first time director J.J. Abrams has been at least indirectly connected to the idea.

There’s no way to talk about this without, well, talking about it, so flee in the opposite direction unless you’re willing to face down

MASSIVE POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW! RUN AWAY!

Star Wars Rebels Renewed For Season 2 With A Definite Game Plan For The Future

fb share tweet share

starwarsrebelsfirst7Star Wars Rebels may technically just have premiere yesterday (read our review here)—though many fans were able to see it early via a promotion Disney Channel ran—but it’s already been renewed for a second season. This news actually came down even before the premiere, we’re just a little late to the party, and it doesn’t really surprise anyone, since you can slap those two words on just about anything and people will watch. Still, the show was a ton of fun, captures the swashbuckling feel of the original trilogy, and though this is obviously targeted at kids, it’s one you won’t mind watching right along side of them.

Rebels takes place in between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. In this setting, the Galactic Empire is tightening its grip on the galaxy, including outer rim planets that have, up to this point, largely gone unscathed. In this oppressive atmosphere, pockets of resistance pop up, and you see the start of what will ultimately become the Rebel Alliance in Episodes IV through VI.

Star Wars: Episode VII Revisits A Classic Scene And Possible First Footage

fb share tweet share

Star WarsThere’s been a lot of talk surrounding Star Wars: Episode VII about how the new film, and everything the new Disney-owned Lucasfilm produces from now on, will connect and fit into the larger Star Wars universe. From what has been said, there’s also a large emphasis being placed on capturing the feel of the original trilogy in the new works, something the prequels failed to do in any way. If the latest Episode VII reports we’re hearing are true, they’re definitely going for that, maybe by even recreating one legendary scenes, or at least something very similar. There’s also a little bit of clarification of the plot, as well as what could be the first look at footage from the actual film.

Here’s where we warn you that there are SPOILERS lurking beyond here. It feels like we’ve entered an era where the boogey man has hiding under your bed has been replaced by spoilers hiding on the Internet, but maybe that just means we’re nerds and we’re growing up.

Star Wars: Episode VII: Wampas And Droids And Chrome Troopers, Oh My

Because this kind of thing seems to come in waves, there’s even more Star Wars: Episode VII news floating around. But don’t worry, while interesting, and definitely in the potential spoiler category, this is nothing like the report that came out yesterday that basically gives away the ending of the film. Seriously, it’s so big that many sites that trade in rumors and spoilers of this sort refused to run it (we’re even talking about sites that, in some instances, have been the first ones to post spoilers, which should indicate just how earth-shaking that news was). We won’t talk about that specific topic anymore, but there are things beyond here that could ruin some things for you.

Star Wars, Spoilers, And What The Hell Are They Thinking?

fb share tweet share

Star WarsIn this line of work, I’ve become fairly immune to spoilers, partly out of necessity, partly because, as long as the story is structured well, the reveal can still have the appropriate impact. One example is that, going into season three of Game of Thrones, I already knew all about the events of the “Red Wedding.” It’s a hazard of the trade, and since I don’t have HBO and had to wait until it hit Blu-ray months after the fact, there’s only so much you can ask out of the internet. But it is told in such a way that I was still floored when it went down, even though I knew what was going to happen. That’s the sign of a strong story, I knew what was going to happen from a mechanical standpoint, but that didn’t dilute the ultimate impact.

That said, the potential Star Wars: Episode VII spoiler that went wide earlier today, is one that may be too big. I read one headline that describe it as the nuclear bomb of spoilers, and I’m actually having trouble wrapping my head around it. This is something that, if it does turn out to be true, indelibly alters something I’ve passionately loved most of my life. (I was born in May, 1977, and have lived a total of 17 days in a world without Star Wars, that’s it.) Some of my earliest, fondest memories revolve around the franchise, but right now I’m still in a mild state of shock over what I just reported.
