RUMOR: Star Wars Episode VII: Disciple of Emperor Palpatine Involved?
Reported by Justin on 19 Mar 2013 16:11

The latest batch of Episode VII rumors comes courtesy of Cosmic Book News which claims an insider source has provided them with the following plot details, with the quote about the disciple of Emperor Palpatine being the part that if I recall correctly has not been previously rumored:

  • Star Wars Episode VII will be set 30 years after Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
  • It will indeed feature the Skywalker/Solo children coming to the peak of their powers.
  • The Jedi Order has been rebuilt with Luke Skywalker as Grand Master.
  • A disciple of Emperor Palpatine aims to rebuild the Sith Armies of the Old Republic and destroy the Jedi where the Skywalker children will be thrust into battle and face their inner demons of their Skywalker lineage.

And as always, take these comments with a huge grain of salt until otherwise officially confirmed/denied by the appropriate parties.
