    interesting... i really don't like the flashbacks though, especially because it's usually a lazy way to tell exposition
    and this is precisely how it's described here - oh look darth vader in a flashback and these inquisitors have been around forever - except you know, in those pesky prequels

    But they needed a way around the Rule of Two. If all the Sith are dead the Order is kind of over.

    I wonder how many inquisitors there will be in Episode VII?

    This is already being discussed in the similar "who's the baddies" thread, just a heads up :)

    The Rebels books call the Inquisitors "Jedi Hunters". The term is now canon.

    A natural progression imo , especially if they're gonna be so prominent in the timeline before ANH.

    This is very smart on LucasFilms/Disney's part imo.

    They aren't just phoning in the Villains.

    Oh sweet Lord, no. This really is looking like little more than an OT circle j@$&. How about an original idea JJ???

    Heck lets just call it:

    Star Wars VII: Electric Bugaloo 2 or

    Star Wars VII: A New Jedi Strikes Back
    Star Wars VII: A New Hope of a Return of the Empire

    Or any other combination of titles.

    So where were these inquisitors during the OT... surely if they were there to hunt down jedi they would've been helping Vader search for Luke - AANnnnnnddddddddddd if Luke was the last jedi, why would they still employ inquisitors?

    But my biggest problem is, why would they need them anyways? Vader was the one, with his armies that were to hunt down the jedi, now suddenly he's too busy and stuff so lets give him inquisitors.

    just seems kind of ridiculous, something i could over look in a cartoon, but a trilogy in the holy saga, naw

    I've changed this tag to Rumor. After giving this some time we might merge it into the Baddies thread, or lock it as needed.

    Also, please recall that the "Jedi Hunters" rumor from before was kind of shot down, so we'll see how this version plays out now.

    Not really. They went around it with the secret apprentice crap.

    I knew there would be a flashback scene because Luke would have to explain why he's missing or held captive and the story behind hand/sabre. Plus it'll be an excuse to bring back Vader, albeit, briefly. However, a flashback scene would seem a bit awkward in a SW movie since there hasn't been one before. But I guess there is a first for everything.

    The story group views them both with the same about of sanctity.

    Filloni said the inquisitors were out chacing down random force sensatives. Vader was after the force sensative that blew up the death star.

    I've said it once and I'll say it again. We are stepping into a larger world.

    If Luke is simply telling the tale verbally, I could work okay I guess (similar to how they did The Tale of the 3 Brothers scene in the 7th Harry Potter film). However, I really don't like the idea of a full-blown flashback sequence, especially one that is a semi-retcon to the OT mythology.

    I really don't have anything positive to say about this particular rumor; so I'll just put a vote emphatically in the 'nay' column and hope we get something good instead.

    I forget who, but somebody (apparently with inside info) tweeted several weeks ago something along the lines that the stuff the Story Group has planned for SW going forward was going to give Marvel a run for their money in long format, multimedia storytelling. I think it will be cool to see how closely integrated all these things are, and this may be the first chance to see how well they execute the idea.

    While I don't hate the idea of flashbacks (yoda did say the force can show you the past) didn't the story group recently say that flash backs have no place in star wars? Wasn't that one of the reasons they did A new dawn as a book rather than through flashbacks within the show?

    I'm calling BS. No way are they introducing flashbacks as a storytelling device in VII. Why do people even bite on this?
