RUMOR: Skywalker To Build Jedi Academy On Yavin 4 In EPISODE VII?

A rumor coming Reuters is revealing a possible key plot point to Star Wars Episode VII. They say that Luke Skywalker will be putting together a new Jedi Knight Academy on Yavin IV. The planet was seen in the original trilogy as the planet of the Rebellion base. There have been rumblings that Luke's cameo would include him training the new protagonist, rumored to be a female Skywalker. While this very well could be true the film is still being written by Michael Arndt. It's possible the news outlet is relying on the books for their synopsis of the new film, rather than an actual source from the production.

"Yavin 4 and the rebel base return to the Star Wars plot in the forthcoming Episode VII, announced in October by the Walt Disney Co, in which Skywalker comes back to the planet to build a Jedi Knight academy. However, fans said that Disney will likely film those scenes in a studio rather than return to Tikal."

In other Star Wars news LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy has stated to ABC they could be announcing something big in January. They assume this means LucasFilm will finally announce the new director. Directors such as Matthew Vaughn, Jon Favreau and David Fincher have been mentioned for the job.

“I have no immediate update, but hopefully in January I’ll have something that I can say,”
