With just a year to go, give or take three days, J.J. Abrams' Star War: Episode VII is on the way, but even though the first teaser trailer has been released, we still don't know much about the plot or how any of the original cast fits in. But with the infamous Sony leaks making their way around the Internet with all kinds of Geek related secrets, one particular leak reveals what the focus of Rian Johnson's Star Wars Episode VIII and XI is.
The Daily Beast has obtained a leaked Email from Co-President of Production for Columbia Pictures Michael De Luca to Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal. Here's what he had to say about the sequels:
"Rian Johnson as you know is doing the main ones, episodes 8 and 9 of the Luke and Leia story lines, after JJ. Not sure anything is gained by looking at what Lucasfilm is doing except we are stalking all these people too."
So, the leak reveals that Luke and Princess Leia will be the focus of the story lines of Episodes VIII and IX. Recently, Mark Hamill stated that the Episode VII: The Force Awakens will focus on the new generation of characters. It could be that the new characters are all racing to find their elder counterparts, but we may have to wait until December 18, 2015 when the The Force Awakens is released or better yet, when more leaks are revealed.
