Star Wars 7 Might Include This Cool Nod To Han Solo's Past
The last time that Han Solo dressed as a Stormtrooper, things didn't exactly go super well. Sure, he was able to sneak into the Death Star alongside Luke, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2, but the end result involved him getting shot at, getting stuck in a disgusting garbage compactor and almost crushed to death, getting shot at again, and then running for his life.

Here's What Darth Vader Will Probably Look Like In Star Wars 7
When last we saw Darth Vader, he was a ghost. It was the end of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, and Anakin Skywalker had made peace with his son, Luke, after years of trying to kill him.

It's well known that J.J. Abrams is a filmmaker who is a big fan of the "Big Screen Experience."

This Is How Star Wars 7 Will Probably Begin
We fully expect that J.J.
