Yesterday we broke the story that Star Wars Episode VII has been given a release date. While we rejoiced in the news, we quickly started speculating on what the story would be. There is so much material set after Return of the Jedi that we assumed it would be one of those story arcs. Grand Admiral Thrawn? Warlord Zsinj? The Legacy Era?
But a souce in Lucasfilm has revealed the story will be completely original and will not draw source material from After-Jedi era. So in terms of story, your guess is as good as mine. Surely they will have an old Master Skywalker leading a new generation of Jedi Knights. Let the speculation begin.
