When it comes to “Star Wars: Episode VII,” fans worry that smoke monsters will misguide the plot, and viewers will find out the main characters have been dead the whole time. Though creative, J.J. Abrams is a bit of a wild card.
The fate of the beloved characters from the original movies was determined in the early to mid-’90s through popular books and especially, the Thrawn Trilogy. EOnline.com reported a source at Lucas Films told them the new movies will be new storylines. Diehard fans are sure the future Disney “Star Wars” films will disappoint them, which happens all the time when great stories are translated to the big screen.
