We can't even go to sleep without some new "Star Wars" rumor hitting the internet. Yesterday brought whispers that "Empire Strikes Back" writer Lawrence Kasdan might be penning a Boba Fett movie (which in turn, means that Gareth Edwards is probably making something else for his 2016 spin-off film), but this morning there's some more tittle-tattle, suggesting that a crown prince of cinematic geekery will be cropping up in "Episode VII."

Star Wars: Episode VII Cast
Who will be this generation's Luke Skywalker? With J.J. Abrams now kicking off a new trilogy with "Star Wars: Episode 7," one that looks back at George Lucas' franchise and starts with the inclusion of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, while also looking forward with a cast of young up and comers that includes Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Domhnall Gleeson (with Adam Driver reportedly the villain), who will be our new hero?

J.J. Abrams,  'Star Wars'
Here's something that in light of the "Ant-Man" news and this current "Star Wars: Episode 7" update, that might be worth remembering: studios, directors and artists working on films owe you absolutely nothing until they are ready to show off what they've been putting together. But over the past week, impatient fans and blogs have been posting or linking to set photos from "Star Wars: Episode 7." TMZ has been the main culprit, managing to get their hands on creature photos and other pics from the secure set of the highly anticipated sequel, while also claiming, due to photo evidence, that the Millennium Falcon is returning to the franchise as well. (Sorry, we're not linking to them but you know how to use Google, if you're really curious). But all of this has led to a much larger debate about the nature of spoilers and leaks in general.

Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, Star Wars Episode VII'
All the talk of "Ant-Man" over the last few days nearly made us forget about Disney's other big 2015 movie: J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode 7." And with cameras now rolling, that promise of more female characters being cast appears to have come true.

Wedge Antilles, Empire Strikes Back
Wedge Antilles is perhaps one of the most beloved minor characters in the original “Star Wars” universe. The rebel pilot and friend of Luke Skywalker appeared in all three of the original George Lucas films, survived the original successful attack on the Death Star, the defense of the Rebel base on Hoth, and along with Lando Calrissian piloting the Millennium Falcon, was one of the lead pilots instrumental in taking down the Death Star for a third time in “Return Of The Jedi.”

Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark
As the wait continues for "Star Wars: Episode 7," it's probably a good time to take a look back and how we all got here, and that's what Entertainment Weekly has done. A new piece from the magazine dives into the journey of Harrison Ford, who has long, long said he had zero interest in ever playing Han Solo again...only to play Han Solo again in J.J. Abrams' film. A prickly interview subject at best, the actor tells it straight when it comes his opinion on, well, anything and it'll be interesting to hear what he has to say about his reversal when the press rounds for 'Episode 7' get underway. For now though, it's interesting to see just how little he cared for Han Solo over the years.

The Walt Disney Company spent a small fortune when they bought LucasFilm for some $4.4 billion dollars in 2013. And so, a new “Star Wars” trilogy is not enough—you need to deliver some kind of “Star Wars” offshoot. The plan announced way back was a new trilogy film every other year and in those in-between years, some kind of “Star Wars” solo movies. And as you might expect, in the ensuing months, there’s been dozens of rumors and unconfirmed reports about the specifics of that gameplan.

J.J. Abrams,  'Star Wars'
We are still eighteen long months away from "Star Wars: Episode 7" landing in theatres, and there is much more news to come. While we now know a good chunk of the official cast, there is still more to come, and though fans were hoping for some additional information this past Star Wars Day, all they got was greeting from director J.J. Abrams and writer Lawrence Kasdan. One of the biggest questions about the upcoming sequel—aside from the actual plot—is what the title might be. And today comes a rumor about what it might be.
