In a shock revelation today, Lucasfilm announced a new Star Wars trilogy to be in the works.
In the worldwide press conference held today at Lucasfilm’s HQ in San Francisco, California, Lucasfilm revealed that characters from the original trilogy like Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Darth Vader will return for the new sequels.
Journalists present at the conference were shocked when Darth Vader’s name was mentioned. One member of the press was quick to remind wasn’t Darth Vader dead in Return of the Jedi? Lucasfilm’s spokesperson smiled and replied apparently everything is not what it seems to be but refuses to elaborate more.
When asked about the storyline of the new trilogy, Lucasfilm remained tight lipped but said that due to the popularity of stormtroopers around the world, George will be writing a subplot which tells the story of a lone stormtrooper who escaped from The Rebel after the battle on Endor and his adventures looking for droids on far away lands.
A short teaser trailer was screened and a leaked version can be found here.
