SPOILER ALERT!! Shock news about the new Star Wars movie currently being filmed in London. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo have all aged 30 years!!
It’s hardly surprising that the actor from the original trio of films don’t look exactly the same as they did in 1983 when the last of those was released. When you’re in regular contact with someone over time you hardly notice them changing but when you rarely see a person, it can be a shock how time has forced them to alter in appearance. It’s a chilling reminder of our own mortality, I suppose.
I’m looking forward to the new Star Wars episode as much as anyone else and I notice that the buzz over ‘spoilers’ has reached fever pitch. How do you feel about spoilers for your favourite films or TV programmes? I have mixed feelings. Half of me wants to search out the latest titbits leaked from film sets etc; the other half of me wants to save the surprise until the big release day. I suppose we’re all like kids at Christmas; we pester Mum and Dad for details but if they tell us too much we feel deflated and let down.
So what level of spoiler builds up suspense and heightens the experience and what level spoils the whole thing? Well, below I’m posting a few titbits which I think will heighten the pleasure of waiting for Christmas day rather than ruin it. If you don’t want any hint at all of what presents you will be receiving then leave this post now!
The above pics are leaked from the set. Star Wars Episode 7 will be released to theaters on Dec. 18, 2015. There will be a villain and it is likely she, yes she, will be a Sith. John Boyega has a major role in the upcoming film but isn’t a Jedi or a Padawan at the beginning of the movie at least, but he’s the one that has the story arc that brings him into Star Wars’ greater universe with echoes of Luke’s arc in A New Hope. There, that’s not spoiled it too much I hope. Roll on Christmas.
