A recent leaked image from the set of Star Wars Episode VII may reveal an important Sith Villain that will be part of the film. For more details on this and a look at the leaked image, check out the news below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
A new test photo may have leaked out from J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. If it’s real, it features a sinister looking Sith villain from the story. The photo comes from the ImageShack account of Darth Simi (via: Star Wars Underworld), and it looks like that account has since been deleted. That could validate what we are seeing here. If you don’t want to look at the image, then please don’t scroll down. Possible SPOILERS below:
.We don’t know if this is a main villain or not, but the one thing that kind of throws me off is the lightsaber that the character is holding. It looks like it has two smaller blades near the base of the saber giving it the appearance of a sword. Of course that’s not the only strange sounding lightsaber design that we’ve heard about. There were some previously released details about a wampa claw lightsaber as well that you can read about here. So I guess it could be possible to have a sword-type hilt on a lightsaber as well.
