‘Star Wars: Episode VII Casting and Movie News
The current Star Wars rumor that is going around is that we will be seeing Tatoonie in Episode VII. Tatoonie is the desert planet that is home to both Anakin and Luke Skywalker. This will not shock some fans while it might leave others confused. Even though the movie is will be based on the Skywalker/Solo family, Luke Skywalker pretty much never goes back to Tatoonie. As of the Yuuzhan Vong war and the Legacy of the Force series Luke had never been back to Tatoonie. Those two-story lines seem the most plausible for them to be using. It has also be said that Lucas wrote the last three movies already but there has been talks of them taking from what has been written in the extended universe. I guess we will have to see.
As of now it seems that Tatoonie will be filmed in a “Morocco-like environment,” Tatoonie had originally been filmed in Tunisia. The Tunisian government it trying to gain the funds to restore the original sets so there is a chance that the movie could go back to where is originally started.
Another Star Wars casting rumor is going around, Maisie Richardson -Sellers is apparently in talks to play a major Jedi role as possibly a descendent of Ben Kenobi.
Maisie is a rather unknown she has only done a few stage plays. George Lucas used with pretty much unknown actors and it worked out well for him. It would not be shocking for J.J. Abrams to go much of the same route.
I guess we will see what happens with this movie, but we promise to keep you up to date about it.
