Aggressive Comix reported a rumor from Movie Pilot and they feel they have a little insight on whats to appear in the new film as well as a few character details. This is a huge stretch in my opinion so go grab a bag of salt for the road. They go on to mention that Lupita Nyong’o will appear on screen as the well known character Asajj Ventress.
– The full title of the film is ‘ Star Wars: Episode VII – The Order of the Jedi’. The film was rumoured to be called ‘A New Dawn’ but that has recently been revealed to be an ‘in-canon’ novel to be released soon.
– Oscar Winner Lupita Nyong’o is also in the cast. She will be playing a character called ‘Asajj Ventress’. Nyong’o was not officially announced in yesterdays report but was one of the first names to have signed up after Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.
– Daisy Ridley will be playing a member of the Solo Family.
– Max Von Sydow will be providing his voice only to a character that will run right through the new Trilogy.
– Luke Skywalker will be the ‘Obi Wan’ type character of the new trilogy.
– Han Solo is the High Commander of the New Republic
– Leia is now the ‘Queen Regent of the Republic’
– The Big bad is not a Sith Lord
I would love to see Lupita in the new films, but as Asajj Ventress? I LOVE that character but she would be a little too old wouldn’t you think? Unless of course she can live like Yoda, then please correct me on that. Like I said, salt the roads people.
