Will Luke Skywalker Run Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 in STAR WARS EPISODE VII?

Being the huge "Star Wars" fans that we are, we pay close attention to any and all rumors floating around for "Star Wars: Episode VII" because like the rest of you, we are hungry for more details on the next chapter. A good one surfaced by way of Reuters yesterday, who posted an article about the Yavin 4 rebel base in the original "Star Wars" and it's potential inclusion in the next film. The quote from them below is what piqued everyone's interest:

"Yavin 4 and the rebel base return to the Star Wars plot in the forthcoming Episode VII, announced in October by the Walt Disney Co, in which Skywalker comes back to the planet to build a Jedi Knight academy. However, fans said that Disney will likely film those scenes in a studio rather than return to Tikal."

While Reuters is generally a reputable source, they cited no direct sources of their own so at this point, we sadly must take it as purely a rumor.

Take a look at our AMC Movie News video where we discuss this and what it could mean for the franchise if it were true:

While no director or actors are tied to the film yet, Michael Arndt is writing the screenplay for "Star Wars: Episode VII", which is scheduled to hit AMC Theatres in 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
