The Plot of Star Wars Episode VII is Now Known

The Plot of Star Wars Episode VII is Now Known January 24, 2013

It is now known that Star Wars Episode VII, the first Star Wars film to be made since Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars from George Lucas, will involve time travel and an attempt to rewrite the earlier history depicted in the prequels.

How do I know this? Because J. J. Abrams is going to produce the movie, and that is what his movies and TV shows are about.

Whether the time travelers will be seeking to prevent Anakin Skywalker from turning to the dark side, or just eliminate Jar Jar Binks, remains to be seen.

My guess is that Abrams will find it tedious to keep his two projects seperate, and so what will happen is that the descendants of the Skywalker family will travel to the distant future and a galaxy far, far away, to enlist the help of StarFleet.

At which point, the longstanding feud between fans of Star Wars and Star Trek will finally end, as both unite in dislike of this mash-up.

Are you excited or worried at the prospect of J. J. Abrams making the next Star Wars movie? And could you envisage a scenario that brought Star Trek and Star Wars together in a way that fans of both – or of either – would like?

    Nice idea, but I really don’t think this is going to be the plot of SWVII… If the movie is actually going to be Episode VII, then it’s going to be a secuel, not a precuel… and really I hope not a secuel that turns into a precuel… SW Expanded Universe books have tons of great material to work with and I think SW fandom would be pleased if this stories, at least a few, were taken to the big screen. 

    • Well, with time travel it could be both sequel and rewriting of prequels. But as I think you gathered, this is satire, whereas your suggestions are actually realistic! 🙂

  • Just Sayin’

    Can they please eliminate George Lucas?

  • Go_4_tli

    If they kept the “science” of both franchises, the 23rd-century star alliances would be rather insignificant compared to the technological might of the Star Wars galaxy.

    • The technological might of either galaxy is insignificant compared to the power of the Force…   😉

    • Akgroeblinghoff

      No. Way. A simple quantum torpedo would be all they need to blow up the bridge of any Star Destroyer. BOOM! Over.

      • John Terracciano

        transported directly onto the bridge

    • Stefan Joe-Yen

      Except for transporters and cloaking which somehow eluded the far older Empire. Guess technological stability isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

  • Jollypub

    Check out this version of the poster…

    If the sky walkers siblings travel in time to stop Anakin becoming Darth Vader , then they won’t be born, Stupid plot idea, Glad your not doing the films, I’m worried about this film as it could go north or south.

  • Greg PJR

    and here I thought that you might be serious

  • Let it be put on record that I made that poster mash-up (Into Darkness = Into Dark Side). That was the first upload (without watermarks) and the second one was with the print: “Star Wars Pilipinas, Duneglider Studios Philippines”. I’m not after anything, this is the internet, I just want people to know I was the one who made that mash-up poster. You can view my other poster mash-ups on my Star Wars page on Facebook: Thank you and May the Force be with you always! 😉

    • Sorry I didn’t know whom to attribute it to. Great work! Thank you for making it!

  • darth

    Well actually i am worried when JJ Abrams was roped into direct SW 7,it’s doubtful whether he would maintain the same old star wars theme while directing SW 7 JJ has got a style of blending realism & emotions into his movies that won’t work with SW7,LUCAS films could have gone for CHRISTOPHER NOLAN or JON FAVREAU instead of JJ ABRAMS.hope he doesn’t bring teleportation into SW 7.

  • no time travel to rewrite the skywalker histroy just keep the story line the it is especial the Solo twins i would loe to see them

  • John Terracciano

    god i really hope this is a joke

  • I don’t care as long as it’s not another reboot.

  • Batty

    I’m still not happy about JJ touching Star Wars. Not one little bit. However, since it’s happening wither or not any of us think it’s a good or bad idea I have to take solace in this… at least it isn’t Uwe Boll directing Star Wars. 🙂

  • Something like this? I made this as soon as they announced! He is damnation for entire Sci-fi genre…

  • bravo

    Dang it, most of the sites that had Lucas’s vii-lx story line information have been replaced with the 2015 production notes. I really hope Disney uses the original story line with vii taking place 15-20 years later with Luke rebuilding the Jedi order and solo and lalas kids also Jedi’s having the adventures

  • john

    that is the stupidest thing i have ever head

  • Jon Lee Wilson

    That poster mashup is the greatest thing i have ever seen.

  • Debra Baker

    Perhaps c3po will be responsible for the beginning of the Borg and will be further complexed (likely already has oedipus complex considering his paternity.)

  • t.c.w.

    i think they should scrap it and do a film based on han solo, lando, jabba, and that whole era between episodes 3 and 4. “Jabba’s Palace” is the book they should use i think.

  • Angryfan

    Star Wars is great and has the jedi and sith to keep interesting. Star Trek needs time travel to keep it fresh. JJ knows better than to mess with great Lucas ideas. Lucas already wrote 7,8,9 so until 10 it will be based on Lucas ideas so pure Genius. Abrams will just bring explosives and big screen entertainment to a deep story line

  • newenglandsun

    Darth Caedus (Jacen Solo) actually time travels to the time of Anakin Skywalker as a Jedi Knight in the books. He doesn’t actually effect the time nor is he actually able. It might be a new achievement with respect to mastery of the Force. I just hope he stays in line with the canon.
