I saw this “story” on Wampa News the other day. I know it is FAKE, but the thought of it even being legit has kind of scarred me. Talk about a downfall of the Star Wars Franchise if Disney would even think about doing this.
BREAKING | STEPHENIE MEYER AND E.L. JAMES RE-WRITING EPISODE VII SCRIPT!!!
Sources inside Lucasfilm have informed us that Stephenie Meyer, author of the wildly popular “Twilight” series of novels, and E.L. James, author of the “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy, have been brought in to re-write the script for Star Wars Episode VII. The duo was reportedly brought in at the request of director Disney executives who felt that the script director JJ Abrams and "The Empire Strikes Back" writer Lawrence Kasdan had written was lacking when it came to the romance.
Our sources say that, upon reading Abrams and Kasdan's draft of the script, Disney execs wanted the love story, which was a sub-plot in the Abrams/Kasdan script, to be brought to the forefront to appeal to a broader audience. There are reportedly four romantic subplots in the Meyer/James script, compared to the just one in the Kasdan/Abrams script.
According to our source, the relationships are: Han and Leia's daughter Jaina (reportedly played by Taylor Swift) having a fling with an imperial officer (reportedly played by Justin Beiber), Han and Leia's marital difficulties caused by Jaina's fling, Luke's struggles learning to love again following the death of his wife Mara Jade (portrayed in flashbacks by Kristen Stewart), and Luke's son (reportedly played by Zac Efron) and his struggles with coming out of the closet to his father about his relationship with another Jedi (reportedly played by Michael Cera).
Fans can expect lots of drama and lots of heat as the love stories play out over the film and set the stage for the relationships in Episode VIII, which will introduce new players into the relationships and cause love triangles for characters you might not expect (think Han and Leia).
Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters December 18, 2015 and stars Mark Hamil, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Zac Efron, Justin Beiber, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Swift, and Michael Cera.
