Star Wars 7 News Roundup for October 2014

I hope everyone had an awesome Halloween and that you're ready for a new, fresh roundup of Star Wars 7 news and leaks! A lot of stuff has happened over the past month, but most media outlets have just focused on "Rebels" (which is now up to episode 4). So, what will we discus in today's post? Well, let's focus on the rumored character descriptions, leaked villain photos, and the news relating to IMAX formats.


Rumored Star Wars 7 Character and Cameos

 So, here's something that female fans are going to be thrilled about - it seems that Benedict Cumberbacth shot a cameo appearance last week and you'll have a chance to get short glimpse of him in the upcoming movie. Along with this it was leaked that Warwick Davis will be playing the role of a cantina musician who'll get into some pretty nasty fight. Apparently, we'll see a bit of violence and gore in this scene where, most notably, an alien played by Simon Pegg will lose an arm. Ouch, pretty nasty - I though Disney was planning a family-friendly movie? Then again, his arm will probably just grow back and everyone will pitch in some funny lines.

Episode 7 News Update: Chrome Troopers - a New Military Unit in the Galaxy

We've already had several sources claim that Stormtroopers will probably be present in Star Wars: Episode 7, but this is the first report showing a new military unit - the "Chrome Trooper". The latest leaks from Indie Revolver suggest that this leaked photo (seen below) is authentic concept art and not necessarily representative of the final version. However, according the leaked report this military unit is actually a group of highly skilled mercenaries who have little to do with the former Empire or its Imperial Army. Let's dissect the information and talk more about these leaked Chrome Trooper photos, shall we?
