With J.J. Abrams at the helm, we all expect that Star Wars: Episode VII will be jam-packed with references to the original trilogy – even beyond the fact that every member of the main cast is coming back. That fact only makes this fresh rumor more believable.
We fully expect that J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII will begin in the traditional way, complete with the sound of John Williams’ brilliant score and yellow text scrolling across the screen, but everything that happens after that point is a complete mystery to fans thanks to the production’s strict secrecy. Now a new report has painted an interesting picture of what we can expect from the opening scene of the new Star Wars movie.
All the way back in early 2013, Mark Hamill pitched what he would like to see from Luke Skywalker in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. The actor suggested that that the Jedi could move into the "Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character" who plays an important role while making way for the younger generation. If new rumors are to be then it looks like star may actually be getting his wish.

Do you regard yourself as a Star Wars nut? Do you think your knowledge and devotion to George Lucas’ series is beyond compare? Now ask yourself; would you buy a drone and fly it over Pinewood Studios just to get a glimpse of Star Wars Episode VII being filmed? If you said no, then you’re not even close to be on the top echelon of Jedi connoisseurs. If you said yes, I’m not sure whether to be impressed or ashamed of your antics. I think I'm a bit of both.

Similar to how you will regularly hear John Ratzenberger's voice in a Pixar movie or find a Stan Lee cameo in a Marvel Comics-based film, writer/director J.J. Abrams isn't a big fan of working on movies or television shows without the inclusion of his own little good luck charm actor.

Just like Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, actor Anthony Daniels is an incredibly important part of the Star Wars legacy. He's just slightly handicapped by the fact that you can't see his face under the C-3PO helmet.

Abrams - as well as the fact that Kevin Smith loves to tell a good story - we already know that Han Solo's legendary ship, the Millennium Falcon, will be featured in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.
