Back on April 29, 2014 the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was announced.
The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.
Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
Lucasfilm has established every new character in the film except for the one played by Max von Sydow… until today.
Making Star Wars is reporting that Max von Sydow plays a character named Lor San Tekka, a man in possession of information vital to the quest of finding the elusive Luke Skywalker. As an elder of a village on Jakku, Lor San Tekka is sought out by the heroic pilot Poe Dameron to find the missing Jedi’s whereabouts.
After some heavy research and piecing together official announcements and rumors surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the main theory floating around the internet is: After Princess Leia finds out that her thought to be dead son has joined the Dark Side she sends Poe Dameron to find Luke Skywalker as he appears to be the only capable of dealing with that type of threat. Poe first looks for Lor San Tekka who has Luke’s lightsaber and the weapon apparently has the coordinates of Luke’s location.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out in a mere 84 days, only time will tell what theories and or rumors were correct.
