    Absolutely. There's been no official confirmation one way or the other. He looks the part, but for all we know he's a bounty hunter that found an old relic-style light saber.

    I was just giving my take on what I "felt" was the case with the Ren character. I have zero facts to back it up lol

    That's what I find so exciting about this period of Star Wars. No one knows what's going to happen :)

    Yeah I was a little kid when I saw ROTJ in the theater, and we had no internet then so I didn't know jack about the movie. I remember crying when Vader saved Luke from the Emperor. Good memories.

    With these new ones, and the advent of the web and blogs, you know some stuff is gonna leak before we see it. It's almost inevitable this day in age.

    Yeah I remember my dad rented ANH and ESB on VHS (lol) and we watched both the morning/afternoon before we went and saw ROTJ. My bro was a big fan back then, and told us it was true that Darth Vader was Luke's father.

    This is an interesting idea; and as good a theory as any I have heard regarding this concept art. It would be a nice way of having a Vader connection; also the planet does look a lot like Naboo as well. [face_thinking]

    While i see what you're saying, i would think rather that Anakin would want to stay as far away from Naboo as he could possibly get. Too many memories, you know. i do get your point, though. Just kind of an "if it were me" sort of thing.

    Sometimes it's the good memories that hurt the most, feel the most raw, and heal the slowest.

    Reflection, wether good or bad, is something that I feel many with troubled pasts do with certain locations. Just my opinion this is...

    Vader is an obsessive and obsessives tend to dwell on things which tells me he would at some point go back to Naboo.

    Agreed. Again, like a lot of things I've seen, not sure how I feel about an evil castle. Unless it's done in a certain way...

    I struck gold when I received the Death Star playset. The "evil castle" will make a mint.

    Are playsets that marketable a thing now? I remember the main event was always the vehicles and the playlets with the action figures more as accessories but that seems to have shifted the other direction over the past few decades with the figures being the big deal.

    I want to see the traps that Darth Vader had inside of his castle, such as gargoyles or something like them that guarded the site when he was gone.

    Maybe the Evil Castle can change that [face_devil]

    Interesting thought....also interesting is that, from what we know about the new Darth Vader comic, he would go back to Tatooine.

    Put yourself in Luke's shoes. Now that the Sith have been destroyed and the Rebellion can kinda take over things on their own, what do you do? You just found out who your Father is and like he mentioned in Jedi he was curious about his mother. Given the technology and record keeping it shouldn't be hard for Luke to see video and images of his mother in the Senate and know she was from Naboo. Surely he would go there, especially if he also knew Vader had a castle there, which is now left to him. Not to mention real family ties with Padme's family.

    I have no doubt Luke would like to know more and that clearly means he at some point heads to Naboo. Only problem is rumor suggests all the planets we see in TFA are new to the saga.

    I just posted this in the planets thread and I thought it could provide value here. A fantastic lead was provided by DarkLordOfTech.

    I just took a stroll on over to Wookipedia and I'm pretty much floored. How in the world can this planet with the X-wings, the forest dual and the evil castle concept art not be Zoist. Fantastic job DarkLordoftech!!!! For craps sake its the exact castle by the water in the Evil Castle concept art. If the Empire was in retreat after losing at Endor surely Zoist would be an obvious place to regroup.

    Seeing as those three cover two different planets I think the answer is obvious.

    Why do we think its three different planets? The X-Wings in attack formation over water with snowy mountain caps in the background could easily be Zoist. The forest dual in the snow forest (mountains) could easily be Zoist. The castle by the ocean rocks scene in the concept art could easily be Zoist. Especially considering it matches comic art from the past. But I will go one further, who is to say Zoist isn't also the place where we see the new Empire shuttle landing concept art or the exotic city artwork.

    If the Empire was in retreat after Endor, Zoist would be the logical place to regroup. It has Sith heritage and infrastructure to keep the remnant going.

    Truth be told I don't think their will be more than three planets in this movie anyways. It would confuse the audience something royal.

    Did you mean to say planets? Or environments?
