STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - Possible First Footage Images and Cantina Scene Details
The Star Wars: Episode VII rumors continue to roll in, and we have a couple of interesting ones for you to read today. These are just rumors for now, but as with everything that has leaked, it is possible that some of it is true, so I will throw out a SPOILER warning just in case. Included in this batch of rumors are some screenshots of some possible leaked footage from the movie.
I'm enjoy reading this stuff. It gets me excited about the movie, and I enjoy discussing these things with my friends. I know rumors like this aren't for everybody, but there are a lot of fanboys and fangirls out there like me, which is why I post them.
The first rumor comes from Star Wars 7 News, and it offers up possible details on a cantina scene early on in the movie in which Daisy Ridley’s character meets Chewbacca and Han Solo:
Daisy arrives to Cantina in search of Han or Luke I believe. She is confronted by an alien, she lifts her blaster to him, he then takes it from her hand “Don’t point a blaster at someone if you are not going to use it” and points it at her. At this point Chewie (With arm Bandaged/In a Sling) intimidates the alien, “What good is a one armed wookie” Chewie then rips the guys arm off and hands the blaster back to Daisy. Ford was not present at filming this, BUT……….
Cut to the outside of the Cantina as a Planet/Moon is blown up outside, Han is present here (Wearing a thin cut, waist length leather jacket, boots etc, a “Matching outfit”) oh and he still has his blaster :) I don’t know if he has just arrived to meet up with Daisy and Chewie, but he is cutting through the crowd of onlookers as everyone is witnessing the destruction of “Whatever” was blown up in the sky.
Note, not 100% sure if Boyega was in the scene but he was present, wearing “Rags” or “Untidy” Clothes. [sic]
The scene definitely sounds it could be a legit description, but until the movie comes out, we won't know for sure. The next rumor comes from JediNews, and it basically clarifies some previous rumors that we heard regarding Luke Skywalker being missing for 10 years and Han and Chewbacca finding him with the character played by Ridley and John Boyega. This statement gives us a different take why these characters are looking for Luke.
The concept of “Luke is missing/needs to be found” in Episode VII is being approached somewhat from the wrong angle in other rumor reports. The source says the “find Luke” premise is based off the cast of young characters (Ridley, Boyega, others?) trying to deal with a problem they uncover that they feel they can overcome themselves, presumably something relating to the machinations of the Sith and/or Empire. They feel confident in their abilities to attack this challenge head-on and quickly realize they are severely out-matched and way out of their league. So they alter their plans and scramble to enlist the aid of Luke, who is unaware of the situation (and how rapidly it escalates to a problem that requires his immediate attention) at the time of his “searching” by the young cast.
Now here are the screenshots from a video that leaked yesterday that I came across on a site called Technobuffalo. The YouTube account that posted the video has since been terminated. Looks like they could have come from a teaser trailer, but they could be fake or they could be real. I have no idea, so you decide.
We've still got a long way to go before we find out which of these rumors are true and which are false. Star Wars: Episode VII is set to be released on December 18th, 2015. In the meantime, I'll keep you updated on any other rumors or other news that pops up!
