Star Wars Episode VII


Recommended Posts

So far we have been doing these discussions in the NGD Forum, but I think it is now taking enough shape that it is worth considering for a future Star Hero Scenario.

 

The whole thing started when Disney bought Lucas Arts:

Then we got JJ "Lens Flare" Adams confirmed as the director:

Now the cast is out. And yes, Luke, Leia and Han are back again (along with 3 other "original Trillogy" actors whose name do not say me anything of the bat):

Current Release time seems to be targeted on 18th December 2015.

 

 

Also, regarding all discussion of "what is canon", here is the official Lucas Film Tier level regarding Canon:

I have heard nothing that this would be changed by the Mouse.

Luke is a redneck, Leia is a member of a royal house.  Both types of people who indulge in that sort of thing.  So don't rule it out, (though Han would be somewhat annoyed).

 

Go back and watch Return of The Jedi. Luke and Leia are twins.

I will likely stick to EU (what I like of it, at least) if I want to do a Star Wars campaign.  Ep I and II taught me not to expect anything out of the tired old mule anymore.   (Ep 3, and Clone Wars cartoons have grown on me to some extent, but still makes me feel disappointed overall how the thing has gone since we saw that first step from Wicket)

 

Note:  The things I like from Ep 1-2?  Darth Maul, and Darth Maul   (ok Christopher Lee too)

Yes I got that they were twins.  Royalty were OK with having children with their relatives, rednecks (and Luke is very much a redneck) are supposedly even more interested in sex with relatives.

Most of the new cast members are unknown to me. Of course I remember Serkis' portrayal of Gollum, and Max von Sydow is pretty much a legend. "Pathetic Earthlings...."

 

I saw John Boyega in Attack the Block a couple of months ago, and I was fairly impressed. I heard rumors he was on the short list earlier this year and I'm glad to see he made the cut.

The webcomic "Full Frontal Nerdity" made a Campaign idea out of the shift in canon:
