Star Wars Episode 7 Plot Rumors: Villains are Inquisitors, Tied to Sith in Episode VII? Also, Hans Solo Has New Ride

The plot rumors for Star Wars Episode VII are flying in, and the latest includes points about the villains in the film as well as Hans Solo.

Adam Driver has been reported for a long time now to be the main villain, perhaps joined by Lupita Nyong’o. 

Latino Review is reporting that the villains in Episode VII will be The Inquisitors, “loosely based on the now-deleted Inquistors of the Expanded Universe mixed with the hardended Sith look of Rebels’ villain.”

The blog claims that Luke Skywalker is being searched for by the main good guys played by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. When Luke is finally found, he will reveal the history of the Inquisitors, which will trigger a flashback that reveals the group has been tied to the Sith all along.

In the flashback, the group will be seen serving Darth Vader.

Indie Revolver expanded on the villains, saying that the main villain of Episode VII is “a Sith Inquisitor.”

“He’s tall and thin and terrifyingly creepy, with glowing red eyes to match his red lightsaber. He’s got some robotic upgrades, like Vader – but no mask. The cybernetic bits weave in and out of him. He’s got a human upper lip, a steel jaw… and the robotic hand that JJ Abrams posted an image of,” it said.

“As Latino Review mentioned, we’ll see flashbacks in this movie which will show us Princess Leia as a young girl and Vader’s involvement with the Sith during his prime. This inquisitor has a fascination Vader through the movie’s timeline as well though – just look how he stares at Vader’s shattered helmet in this image:”

And Badass Digest is adding that Hans Solo will not be flying the Millennium Falcon in the new movie–he and Chewbacca will be piloting a Super Star Destroyer.

The Falcon, meanwhile, is in the hand’s of Oscar Isaac’s character, “who is very much the Lando Calrissian of this movie – all the way down to wearing a cape.”

The website also said that Solo will wield a lightsaber in the film, and that John Boyega’s character is a storm trooper who deserts the Empire and teams up with Daisy Ridley’s character.
