A SPOILER Filled Review of Who May Be the Villains for Star Wars: Episode VII | Fanboys Anonymous
Hold on to your light sabers, fellow nerds, 'cuz I got some news for you all. The cast for this upcoming film, the latest in the Star Wars saga directed by J. J. Abrams, is set. So we know who is going to be in it but not quite who is playing who outside the main core cast from the original trilogy. On a side note, I'm totally stoked about this because Ford, Fisher, and Hamill rock hardcore. It's gonna be awesome to see them back in their iconic roles once again. Plus we get the original R2D2, C3PO, and Chewbacca. I'm so geeking out right now.

But what about the villains? Who will be flexing their evil muscle against our trio of heroes? Rumor has it from Latino Review that the villains are all ready to bust some heads. SPOILERS will follow so beware. Keep in mind this is merely a rumor at this point, but Latino Review has a good track record thus far in picking the right horse with a lot of these things so this is a solid bit of information to consider. There is more, though, so hang on tight and get ready for more SPOILERS next.

The rumor is that Luke has been captured by Inquisitors, who are loosely based on the ones in the Expanded Universe of Star Wars. The EU was supposedly not considered canon, then it was, then not, now…what exactly is fair game in the massive franchise that is Star Wars? I know nothing about these Inquisitors, but they seem cool. At least it will be something different, right?

Not exactly. Another rumor is that there will be a flashback and Darth Vader will be seen giving these bad guys some orders because they used to work for him. This flashback might also include a young Princess Leia. I don't mind this at all. It may seem like them attempting to piggyback on the shoulders of the previous entries for fans' pleasure and reference purposes, but as long as it serves the story proper it could work. At the very least, it's nice to postulate what Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o, and Gwendoline Christie might be doing in Episode VII and who their characters are. Unfortunately we don't know the details on what these actors are playing yet.

So do these bad guy Inquisitors sound like a good idea? Or are they reaching in an attempt to fan the flames of fans' nostalgia? Sound off below.
