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.
