Few films are as highly anticipated even before production is underway but then again, few films bring the excitement of a story told in a galaxy far, far away!
With Disney now in charge of the franchise we’re promised STAR WARS sequels and spin-offs every year from the summer of 2015. First up will be director J.J. Abrams’ trek to the other side of the stars with a follow-up to 1983s RETURN OF THE JEDI. We’ll be hoping for a whole lot better than what George Lucas’ convoluted and joyless prequels ‘entertained’ us with.
With rumours of Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ casting along with the expected return of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, new plot and character details have now appeared certainly backing up some of those reports. Abrams and Walt Disney recently confirmed the epic sci-fi sequel will shoot at the beginning of 2014 in the UK.
Storyline: Two 17 year old twins, a girl and a boy, are trained by their uncle Luke to be the greatest Jedi’s in the galaxy. Problems arise when the male twin turns to the dark side.
Jaina Solo – Female, 17 years old, lead. – Jacen’s twin sister, one of the greatest Jedi’s in the galaxy, trained by her uncle Luke Skywalker
Jacen Solo – Male, 17 years old, lead – Jaina’s twin brother, one of the greatest Jedi’s in the world. A loner who is constantly struggling with the idea of what’s right and what’s wrong. Starts to turn to the dark side. Full of conviction that what he is doing is the “right thing”. Will eventually become Darth Caedus.
Does this make fans of the space saga franchise super excited? Do let us know!
