Rumour: Star Wars: Episode VII villains revealed?

J.J. Abrams’ mystery box may have just swung open in spectacular fashion, with a number of rumours hitting the web regarding the identity of Star Wars: Episode VII ’s villains.

According to Latino Review , the film’s main antagonists will be the Inquisitors, as featured in Star Wars: Rebels , who will be introduced as defenders of the Sith Order.

The lead Inquisitor is reported to be a half-cyborg creature, and is the owner of the robotic hand featured in that recent image of a note referring to “a force for change”.

On top of that, there is also said to be a flashback sequence in which the Inquisitors are seen to be serving none other than Darth Vader himself. That’s right… Vader will be making an appearance. We can hardly wait…

Directed by Abrams and co-starring Harrison Ford, Adam Driver and Lupita Nyong’o, Star Wars: Episode VII will open in the UK on 18 December 2015.
