New Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rumors!

Alright, with the release of The Force Awakens happening later this year, we’re bound to get some true confirmation about the movie soon. How soon? Who knows. But until then, it’s time to head to the rumor mill!

First up is an interesting tidbit about the release date of The Force Awakens. Apparently, Director J.J. Abrams wants the date moved up to this summer, instead of the winter…

“This comes from the mouth of Abrams himself, addressing a group of attendees at a recent Hollywood industry event, the 2015 Visual Effects Society Awards… this is banquet season after-all. Apparently, his desire for secrecy does not apply in this case, as he openly expressed his frustration about the Episode VII leaks. Adamant about the project’s secrecy, Disney is reportedly taking Abrams’ request very seriously and is looking at a possible summer release. This would put Star Wars up against other giant franchise releases, namely Jurassic World and Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron.”

IF this was to happen, this would shakeup the entire year of releases easily. Will it happen though? Only Disney knows.

Now, about the movie itself. There’s another rumor going around that Luke Skywalker’s son is in the film, and he’s being played by Domhnall Gleeson, who is apparently an Imperial in the film. Say what?

“Something is going on with this story because in the last week I’ve heard Domhnall Gleeson is Luke Skywalker’s son four times. Four times. Four different sources, three really trusted and one new but apparently on the money for most things. Four different spheres of development without much chance of overlap between the sources. So either Gleeson is the son of Skywalker in The Force Awakens or someone prominent in the production is spreading misinformation (which I doubt).”

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there, check the latest “details” about Gleeson’s character:

“Apparently, Gleeson’s character is playing both sides to disarm the galaxy of its super weapons held by both sides which “should not be allowed to exist according to his internal moral compass.” But it appears he might do some bad things in the name of the greater good over the course of the film.”
