Star Wars Episode VII: J.J Abrams Confirmed, So What's Next To Speculate On?

Subscribe to Jj Abrams alerts

We moan about Star Wars gossip in some articles, but the truth is, we absolutely love it. The news that J.J Abrams will helm the seventh film simply replaces conjecture as to who it would be, and now we can focus on other things, like what it'll be about, and who'll be in it.

Well we can speculate on the story. Will see get a greater insight into Luke Skywalkers ascendance to master Jedi? We would certainly love to see that story. 

Another strong possibility is a deeper development of Han Solo - the lovable rogue character made famous by Harrison Ford, who, ironically, never really took to Solo, and thought he should have died before the franchise was, seemingly, closed off.

As some twitter-jokers have commented, "you can't spell Jar Jar without JJ," so will Star Wars' most loathed character make any sort of return? I think we could just about handle a cameo from the squeaky alien, but a fully-fledged role? Please, we've seen enough.

While it's fun to speculate, it's essentially fruitless. Take, for example, the director decision. It was only in November that Abram's committed himself fully to the Star Trek franchise, before being unashamedly lured in by the force.

When the hell will it be set!? For those of you who don't know (and if you don't: go and throw yourself into a DVD shop, buy all of the Star Wars films and watch them all... 18 times) the films weren't exactly made in the right order. Episodes IV, V and VI - A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of The Jedi respectively - are the last three films in the series, while the news trio represent the first three, in terms of the chronological plot.

Make sense? Well, what we're getting at is: they haven't made them in any sort of order so far, so what's stopping them making another prequel? Or sequal, or... noqual? Now we're making up words.

"I get asked all the time, 'What happens after Return of the Jedi?,' and there really is no answer for that. The movies were the story of Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, and when Luke saves the galaxy and redeems his father, that's where that story ends," said Star Wars Creator George Lucas in 2008 to The L.A Times.

It would take weeks to find all the Lucas' contradictions, but that's a pretty stark one. Again, with all that has been said and done in the past being recently rendered useless, it's nearly impossible to predict what Star Wars Episode 7 will be about, but with J.J Abrams at the helm, at least we're one step closer to finding out. Albeit a small step.
