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.
