STAR WARS EPISODE VII: Villains Revealed?


It’s been a fairly busy day at the Star Wars: Episode VII rumor mill. We learned earlier about the new Stormtrooper helmets and now Latino Review and Bad Ass Digest reveal some more bits about the Episode VII villains and who is the owner of the droid hand from Bad Robot’s tweet (below).

Today is  definitely not a good day for the Mystery Box.

Potential spoilers ahead!

As had been rumored, villains will reportedly be Inquisitors, related to the characters to be introduced in Star Wars: Rebels  (although they might be called something else in the film).


Here’s LR’s story:

The Inquisitors are the villains of Star Wars: Episode VII and the name of the main villain in Star Wars: Rebels. The Inquisitors are defenders of the Sith Order and they’ve been around for a long time. Just how long is what turns Episode VII’s story on it’s head.

When our hero(es) find Luke and the Inquisitors are revealed, Luke’s explanation on the history of this order is going to trigger a flashback to explain that the Inquisitors have been tied into the Sith all along.

But, a young Princess Leia is not all this flashback reveals…The Inquisitors will be seen serving Darth Vader in flashback.


And here’s what Bad Ass Digest offered up of their own about the robotic hand we saw brandishing the note:

There’s a main Inquistor villain (I don’t know his name) Want to know what he looks like?

He wears a black robe. His eyes are deep red. And half of his face is metal. He’s a cyborg. That was his hand in the picture JJ Abrams shared with the note about A Force For Change.

And supposedly that was his hand in the image below. Okay, I dunno what to say to this.


Stay tuned for more information!
