We’ve got a few Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars Rebels rumors to report this week…
Careful! Lots of spoilers ahead!
1.) Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Leia’s First Appearance Rumor
Princess Leia’s first appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a direct result of Poe Dameron’s (played by actor Oscar Isaac) actions after the Jakku massacre.
This rumor comes from MakingStarWars. According to them, a “source” let them know about this news and they released the following quote:
“Leia’s first appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens occurs when Brance steps in and lets her know that she has an urgent message from Poe Dameron who needs to be rescued after the Special Ops TIE Fighter he had stolen crashed, marooning him on Jakku. This is also how Leia learns to send an emissary to Takodana and intervene in the story’s events.”
According to MSW, this is also C3PO’s first appearance in the film as well!
Sounds plausible to me! Princess Leia is usually springing into action. This would be a great introduction to where she is now – We would see her in a position of authority and she would get to show off her character and rank. What do you all think?
2.) Star Wars Rebels: Tomorrow’s Episode Breakdown
This rumor comes from ChristianPost and it’s about tomorrow’s episode of Star Wars Rebels entitled, “Always Two There Are.” So if you don’t want the plot potentially blown, then don’t keep reading!!!!!
According to CP, tomorrow’s episode will show the Rebels leave while the Oldies stay behind to fight. Then, the mission is said to take a terrible turn when Ezra realizes that the masked villain he is fighting is a new Inquistor. Ezra and Sabine then have to escape before they are killed by the Inquistor which proves incredibly difficult.
If you’ve been watching previous episodes, you know this sounds totally plausible. This rumor/spoiler would really kick Ezra’s development as a Jedi and young man into high gear which will be exciting to watch.
Bonus: We know that Sarah Michelle Gellar will be the Seventh Sister Inquisitor in this episode.
3.) Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Stormtrooper Battle on Takodana
MakingStarWars released a “new leaked photo” of Stormtroopers fighting on, what they hypothesized is, Takodana.
The picture is shady looking to me. I don’t think it’s legit.
4.) Star Wars: The Force Awakens – J.J. Abrams Admits that he’s keeping Luke Skywalker hidden.
Okay, this one isn’t a rumor because the words came right out of J.J. Abrams‘ mouth. However, I have to mention what he said because the lack of Luke has been making fans go crazy! There are rumors galore about why Luke isn’t around. Read more about that from our last week’s Rumor Roundup.
The Associated Press asked Abrams why we haven’t seen Luke.
In the AP video, we can hear the reporter say, “Luke?! Where’s Luke?!”
“These are good questions to be asking. I can’t wait for you to find out the answer,” Abrams replies.
“So there’s a reason?” the reporter then asks.
To which Abrams simply replies, “It’s no accident.”
I mean… Ya know, duh. We all knew that right?! I can’t really imagine the reporter asking this and J.J. Abrams saying, “WHAT!? Luke’s missing from the trailer?!!I had no idea!!!”
So, yeah, we all knew that Abrams did this on purpose. But it’s fun to hear it straight from him!
