TV & FILM

We may know the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII but, with the exception of the old-timers coming back from the original trilogy, so far we have had few clues as to which actors are playing what characters, or even what characters there are to play.
Today, however, there are some pretty sweet rumors coming out of Pinewood Studios outside London. According to makingstarwars.net, individuals who work on the set of the new film are saying the villains of the Episode VII are being called "Jedi Hunters." Basically, these are evildoers who have been handed the task of exterminating the Jedi and resurrecting the Sith—which supposedly will happen in Episode VIII. They wear all black, they carry light sabres, they have their own private stock of stormtroopers who wear black and chrome armour, and apparently a "New Republic" was never established after the death of the Emperor because Luke Skywalker has been too busy fighting these badasses.
As for who is playing the Jedi Hunters, apparently it's Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver, and David Oyelowo.
Of course, all of this could prove to be untrue, so you shouldn't get too excited. But if it is true, it would be pretty awesome, right?
