It seemed strange that a writer over at Reuters would have an inside track about what Star Wars Episode VII would be about, so this rumor debunking story should come as a surprise to few. Yesterday there was a report saying there was a chance that the new Star Wars movie would feature Luke Skywalker returning to Yavin 4 to start a Jedi academy, but it turns out that information was incorrect.
Finding the initial story curious, a writer over at TheForce.net reached out to the original article's author, Michael McDonald, who admitted his mistake and said that he had been confused about the intel he had received and never got any concrete details about Star Wars Episode VII. Respond to an inquiry from the site, McDonald said,
At the time that this story is being published there is no correction on the Reuters site and the line, "Yavin 4 and the rebel base return to the Star Wars plot in the forthcoming Episode VII, announced in October by the Walt Disney Co, in which Skywalker comes back to the planet to build a Jedi Knight academy" is still featured in the write up.
Star Wars Episode VII is currently being written by Michael Arndt and being prepped for a 2015 release date.
