STAR WARS EPISODE VII Jedi Academy Rumor Has Been Debunked

Yesterday a new report surfaced on a possible filming location that could double(again) as Yavin 4, where Luke would set up a new Jedi Academy. However, now the report is being debunked by the same person who started the rumor.

Some intriguing possible plot details surfaced yesterday from Reuters, who said they got some information regarding possible plot details for Star Wars Episode VII. The report by, Mike McDonald, said that the Guatemalan rainforest that George Lucas used in Episode IV as Yavin 4 would be making a return to the big screen, only this time it would be where Luke Skywalker sets up the new Jedi Academy. However, McDonald himself has debunked the rumor saying that he misunderstood what he was told.

Said McDonald:

"This was a mistake. I misunderstood what fan clubs had told me and shown me in book plots and that storyline has not been announced by Disney. Perhaps I should have written something along the lines of ‘Yavin 4 appears in several Star Wars book plots and while Guatemala fans said they hope film crews return to Tikal, the company has not announced plans for the new episode."


So it looks like we will have to wait a little longer on information about the film. Rumor has it, that we will be hearing something regarding who might be directing the movie sometime in January. Maybe then we might get some plot information. For the latest on Star Wars make sure to check back here at CBM.

Doesn't surprise me at all. Only Disney would spread such a dumb rumor

I knew it.

Um, maybe it was debunked because, to begin with, the "rumor" had pretty much no reliable source at all

DUH! Called it!

The 1st leaks will be about casting, director, characters. The story itself will only be seen by a small handful of people until shooting starts.
So any story leaks until then are complete BS.

The Jedi Academy'll end up on Coruscant because they got like, y'know, a bunch of computers and stuff there.

I don't need leaks. I know EXACTLY what's going to happen and it's going to be [frick]ing awesome.

PeterParker1991, the "rumor" had nothing to do with Disney. It was a case of some Reuters reporter completely misunderstanding what some Star Wars fans in Guatemala had told him.

I figured this was bullshit.

Not a surprise. It was only a matter of time before some spokesperson called bullshit.

I still can't believe this is being made!!

There were rumors about this movie before this movie was ever even a movie.

I was really hoping that was legit. That would be such a perfect way to start off the new trilogy IMO.

Young academy stories have been done to death. I hope we're not heading into lame tween disneyfied territory. Matt Vaughn would be nice to counteract that. But still I was hoping for Favreau to get that Arndt script.

I say keep the rumors coming. Even the lamest ones are interesting.
