Rumors, rumors, rumors…
I lament that I have to post these bits and pieces of unsubstantiated scoopage, but I know you fanboys want the latest news from the geek world, so I do what I must.
This latest gossip comes from the kind folks at Latino-Review, who’ve been leading the charge of false scoops this past year (their track record is really REALLY bad). According to their 3 super secret sources, Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi is scheduled to appear in STAR WARS EPISODE 7 as a wise, old spirit. These are the same folks who revealed Emperor Palpatine would return as a force ghost, so take everything with a grain of salt, as nothing’s been confirmed.
Personally, I’d much prefer if the new trilogy avoids the villains and heroes of the Prequels. Sure, they’re some of the most iconic characters in cinematic history (even if they didn’t quite live up to the hype), but the Star Wars franchise should be allowed to grow, and relying on villains from a completed story arc is not the way.
