Rumoured Star Wars: Episode VII Scene Features Han Solo And Chewbacca


By this stage, the amount of leaked set photos and misinformation that has sneaked onto the Internet for Star Wars Episode VII has made it rather difficult to cut through the weeds and discover new and genuine information. We’ve had elusive snaps of the iconic Millennium Falcon, images of the X-Wings, and even a still that reportedly reveals Adam Driver’s true role in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming reboot.

And today, the latest murmuring comes from Star Wars 7 News, a message board has unearthed a detailed description of a scene that features Cantina — played by Daisy Ridley — running into Han Solo and Chewbacca.

Of course, it’s worth noting that this information is unverified at this point in time and if you want to go into Star Wars: Episode VII with a clean slate (no mean feat, given the nature of the Internet), then it’d be best to skip past the spoiler-ish documents.

Daisy arrives to Cantina in search of Han or Luke I believe. She is confronted by an alien, she lifts her blaster to him, he then takes it from her hand “Don’t point a blaster at someone if you are not going to use it” and points it at her. At this point Chewie (With arm Bandaged/In a Sling) intimidates the alien, “What good is a one armed wookie” Chewie then rips the guys arm off and hands the blaster back to Daisy. Ford was not present at filming this, BUT……….

Cut to the outside of the Cantina as a Planet/Moon is blown up outside, Han is present here (Wearing a thin cut, waist length leather jacket, boots etc, a “Matching outfit”) oh and he still has his blaster! I don’t know if he has just arrived to meet up with Daisy and Chewie, but he is cutting through the crowd of onlookers as everyone is witnessing the destruction of “Whatever” was blown up in the sky.

Again, it’s difficult to imagine this being an accurate play-by-play of a scene. Personally, I feel it reads a little too much like fan fiction to be deemed genuine, but take from it what you will. Following up on the Han and Chewy-centric rumour is another bout of speculation, this time from JediNews. Here, we learn more about the potential thread that would see a world where Luke Skywalker has been missing for a full ten years.

The concept of “Luke is missing/needs to be found” in Episode VII is being approached somewhat from the wrong angle in other rumor reports. The source says the “find Luke” premise is based off the cast of young characters (Ridley, Boyega, others?) trying to deal with a problem they uncover that they feel they can overcome themselves, presumably something relating to the machinations of the Sith and/or Empire. They feel confident in their abilities to attack this challenge head-on and quickly realize they are severely out-matched and way out of their league. So they alter their plans and scramble to enlist the aid of Luke, who is unaware of the situation (and how rapidly it escalates to a problem that requires his immediate attention) at the time of his “searching” by the young cast.

Star Wars Episode VII will land in theaters on December 18th, 2015.
