Question. Since the big three are in this film, will Mara Jade be in it with Luke?

He was supposed to provide the voice of QuiGon's ghost right after the end of Obi/Ani's duel, where he contacts Yoda from... well, beyond. You see the scene right after Yoda's done talking with him (when Obi's spaceship arrives on that planet where the twins are born), but in the comics you can see Yoda actually conversing with QuiGon's voice.

By that point Liam thought SW had gotten too silly, but then returned for TCW 4 years later or so.

I meant for episode 7 .

I think what happened with that bit for ROTS was that in the end they didnt like what it looked/sounded like, so they scraped the idea of putting it into the film. Not sure where i read that, but there u go lol.

Mara is one of the few EU characters I like :/

She's likely not going to be in it, though. Batboy from what we've heard the EU is more or less obsolete now.

Here is a new video featuring Mark Hamill (via The Nerdist Channel) talking about a chance to meet both him and George Lucas at Skywalker Ranch. Of course, all of the proceeds go to a very special cause: The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Mark looks good, and will look even better in a few months. I don't know how long ago he shot this..I would guess maybe earlier in the month or December, because he dyed his hair since then.

Our very own Viral has an avalanche of rumors at his site:
http://www.starwars7news.com/2014/01...s-more-on.html

At first I was like 'pttf..yeah right' but from what I read, it's reasonable and I can see Lucasfim doing what is being rumored.

Essentially what's cover in the link is that JJ and the rest of Lucasfilm team are going through the EU, and see which character fit into Episode 7. But when I say 'take' it's more like influenced.

For example, if Luke does have a wife, her name in the film won't be Mara Jade, but rather, a character inspired by her and other female characters in the EU.

The problem with Starwars7news is that 99% of the time they just copy and paste what they find on other sites. So the idea that all of a sudden they have all these super secret sources is pretty funny.

And since when has George Lucas always decided upon the love of Luke Skywalkers life? He said the opposite in the 2008 Total Film interview. He said he didn't agree with the expanded universe and that Luke Skywalker doesn't get married.

Are you happy for new Star Wars tales to be told after you're gone?

I've left pretty explicit instructions for there not be any more features. There will definitely be no Episodes VII-IX. That's because there isn't any story. I mean, I never thought of anything! And now, there have been novels about the events after Episode VI, which isn't at all what I would have done with it. The Star Wars story is really the tragedy of Darth Vader. That is the story. Once Vader dies, he doesn't come back to life, the Emperor doesn't get cloned and Luke doesn't get married...

And he also said that there wouldn't be Episode 7-9, which had an outline written by HIM that was given to Bob Iger in 2012.

I really hope the EU survives in some canon form, I know some of you guys aren't big on the EU and that's okay but the EU has become very special to me I regard much of its material as highly as the Original Trilogy.

So with this EU purging...is The Clone Wars considered canon?

Ya, they probably won't be touching much of the PT era in terms of changing canon. Mainly post Episode III. Especially Post Jedi.

But TCW is much higher canon, and more "official" then most other things. I doubt anything of TCW will be touched.

@infinata Pablo, quick question: is Clone Wars counted as official Star Wars canon? This seems unclear on top of the recent news.

@WickedGavel Not sure why it would be unclear. The series, as it was developed & produced by George Lucas, is most definitely canon.

Ya but it's the internet. No matter how many times some will say stuff like this, people will go rumor crazy. Interestingly enough I think so many people are so hungry for SW news, even the big trades I think they are just taking massive grains of salts and running with them. JJ even said he is laughing at so much of this.

As for that certain website...he tried to claim that he came up with the term "The Big Three". Among many other things. The only thing I can liken it to, is Jett (BOF style). But way less contacts.

In Ep 7? Hell No. Now, force ghost Qui Gon in the proposed Obi Wan spin off that happens between Episodes 3 and 4? Sign me up for that.

As for Qui Gon... the supposed upcoming episodes of The Clone Wars may have something to say about that character...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Quote:
Voices (voices)

Yoda is deeply confused when he hears the voice of his late friend, Qui-Gon Jinn in his head, because he knows that even a Jedi can not speak from the realm of the dead to the living. The Jedi Council is irritated by Yoda’s behavior and wants to examine it in more detail. But with the help of Anakin, Yoda can escape from the hospital and puts himself on the search for the source of the voice.
Quote:
Destiny

Guided by the Force, Yoda travels to the heart of the galaxy. There, on the planet where he finds the origin of the Force, he must face difficult trials. Only upon passing them will the Sages deem him worthy of learning the deepest mysteries of the Force….
Quote:
Sacrifice

On Moriband, the homeworld of the Sith, the time has come for Yoda to pass his final test. Only then will he learn the best-kept secret of his order, but first a most powerful enemy awaits….

That's a shame. Though it would probably be Mara jade just with a different name.




Gillian Anderson for Mara Jade/ not exactly Mara Jade!

I have a huge respect for Pablo Hidalgo. I don't know if he is referring to all the rumors we posted on starwars7news.com but we received a huge amount of positive reactions. People are enthusiastic and anxiously discussing the possibilities. And just calling these rumors "dumb" is really like calling the fans dumb. I think these rumors are maybe the first ones that kinda makes sense. But still they are just rumors and because of the lack of anything else we should stick up with them.
I can assure you that they're not just some speculations coming from a fan's imagination. Some of them were heard by others bloggers too but we decided to post them. They sound pretty plausible and we trust our sources. If they happen to be wrong, well good, the life goes on. Still we have a helluva discussion and the wait is more bearable this way.
So apologies if we dumbed you down with our rumors.
