Yesterday we had a big chunk of news that pretty much blew everything else away, and with SDCC officially beginning tonight we’ll likely get even more, so let’s clear the boards with a few things that have been floating around regarding Episode VII, Rogue One and (maybe) even Episode VIII.
→ Before we break for possible spoilers and casting rumors, A ‘full slate” of Star Wars films has ‘leaked,’ but it directly contradicts yesterday’s Han Solo news, with a Kenobi film after Episode VIII and “Fett/Solo” in 2020. Okay! (UPDATE: It’s fake. I’m shocked.)
→ Birth. Movies. Death. (formerly Badass Digest) says we might see Vader in Rogue One. Apparently even less Vader than in Rebels though, so basically a glorified cameo, but they’ll be able to put him on the toys, and isn’t that what really matters?
→ There’s a super iffy report out there that Hong Kong action star and martial artist Donnie Yen may have a role in Episode VIII, or maybe Rogue One. Honestly, no one is really sure, and the original report has conflicts up the wazoo, and basically I’m going to point you to BMD again because they’re one of the few not taking this at surface value.
