New “Star Wars” Luke, Falcon, Ridley Rumors

The last day or two has been busy on the “Star Wars: Episode VII” rumor front.


First up, Latino Review has a report about some plot points, the most interesting of which is that Oscar Isaac’s character now owns the Millennium Falcon rather than Han Solo or Chewbacca.

Then there’s the report that the shoot on Skellig Michael Island the other week could potentially deal with a plot point that Luke Skywalker has been held prisoner for some time. At that location, character placeholders have the codes “OW” and “K”. The latter could stand for Kira, actress Daisy Ridley who is confirmed to have been a part of shooting.

Speaking of Ridley, Deadline did a piece on her representation and included the line “the plan is for her carry through to the second and third films that will be directed by Looper helmer Rian Johnson” which acknowledges she’s in the entire trilogy.

Finally, Chewbacca himself Peter Mayhew confirmed to Blastr that the film will utilize very little computer generated effects and will instead be very practical.
