Star Wars: Legacy, Volume 2 Might Hold Some Info About the Star Wars VII Plot

Recently a lot of interesting rumors have leaked about the potential plot of the new Star Wars movie. Although the rumors seemed surprisingly interesting and accurate in terms of the Expanded Universe, it appears that they have actually just been ripped out of a few pages of the Legacy comic book series from Dark Horse Comics. Click the 'read more' button to get the full scoop!

While it is very unfortunate it is also quite true - all good things must come to an end. Why do we say that? Well, if you aren't a fan of Star Wars comics, then you probably haven't heard that longtime Star Wars comic publisher Dark Horse is about to publish their final Star Wars comic book.  As you can guess from the title, the comic book is called Star Wars: Legacy, Volume 2 (issue 18). Oh, but this of course isn't the end of the franchise in terms of comic books of course. Following this end is yet another new, fresh start because Marvel will takeover of the franchise next year. However, this isn't what we want to talk about - our interest is solely in the new Star Wars movie and what it might have in common with comic book.

Today's post won't have much Star Wars 7 news, but will instead mostly focus on some interesting rumors related to Episode VII.

Finding the Dots - Star Wars: Legacy Explained

Alright, let me begin from the top! If you are not familiar with Star Wars: Legacy then here's a quick rundown:
  • The story is set in the Star Wars Universe and timeline is over a century and three decades after the end of Return Of The Jedi 
  • As the story goes the Jedi Order was formed once again and it grew
  • However, the prosperity did not last for a long time as the New Republic became the Galactic Alliance and tgeb decayed into the Fel Empire and the Jedi Order was scattered (but not destroyed)
  • Now, once again the Sith are back and this time they come in substantially greater number and they obviously rule ove the Fel Empire and this leads to pretty big war between various sides: the Sith, the Jedi, the Fel Loyalists, the Republic loyalists etc 
And while the story involves the adventures of Luke's descendent Cade Skywalker, we are currently more interested in Han and Leia's decedent Ania Solo who is one of the most important characters of Volume 2.

Ania’s story is our subject of focus for today's article because many of the rumors that we’ve heard about the story so far sound like they were taken out of pages of this volume. So, again, let us start from the start:
  1. Ania Solo starts her adventure on a backwater planet running a junkyard (a very common start in the Star Wars franchise) along with her friend Sauk who is a Mon Calamari (no, it isn't a trap). 
  2. One day Ania discovers a lightsaber and one thing leads to another and Ania learns that she’s been marked for death an Imperial Knight called Darth Wredd, a cyborg. Obviously she escapes and is joined by Sauk.
  3. In the interesting turn of events they will have an adventure across the Galaxy and actually join forces with another Imperial Knight named Jao Assam (well, more like an ex-Knight). This partnership will eventually allow her to meet Cade Skywalker which is considered one of the most crucial parts of the storyline.

Connecting the Dots on the Road to Star Wars 7

Alright, so what does this have to do with Star Wars 7 you might ask? Ok, I know the article is long but bear with me we are getting there! You see, the rumors about the plot of the Episode VII were extremely similar to what I just told you. Let's recall what the original scoop was:
  • The rumors said that actress Daisy Ridley was rumored to be both the lead character and the descended of Leia and Han. So far this sounds exactly like Ania Solo. The rule is backed-up by the fact that she is currently the only actress that has signed a contract to appear in all three movies of the sequel trilogy.
  • Furthermore, there have been rumors from the start that there will be a new Mon Calamari character in Star Wars Episode VII which sounds like Ania's friend Sauk.
  • John Boyega’s rumored role perfectly fits the appearance and character of Jao Assam, the Imperial Knight who joins Ania on her journey.
  • Rumors from day one have also strongly speculated that we will be seeing another cyborg Sith Lord and the before mentioned Darth Wredd fits this role perfectly.
