Will Yavin IV return in Episode VII?

December 20th, 2012 by bash Comments

Will we see the return of Yavin IV in Star Wars: Episode VII?

That is the suggestion in a Reuters story about how fans are flocking to the Mayan city of Tikal because it’s the location George Lucas used as the rebel base in A New Hope.

The small snippet reads: “Yavin 4 and the rebel base return to the Star Wars plot in the forthcoming Episode VII, announced in October by the Walt Disney Co, in which [Luke] Skywalker comes back to the planet to build a Jedi knight academy.”

Neither Disney nor Lucasfilm has commented on the rumour.

So there you have it. The first Star Wars story in a while and it’s quite a good one. If true then we’ll definitely see the return of Luke Skywalker and, ofcourse, this all reminds EU fans of the Jedi Academy trilogy books by Kevin J Anderson.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
