Star Wars: Reclamation Seems To Offer Our First Real Clues Of What Episode VII Holds

star wars reclamationMickey Mouse’s white gloved hand has been caught reaching out and pulling a lot of plugs of late. Amongst the cancelled projects, closures and lay-offs, many of them were Star Wars releated.

So we already knew that The Clone Wars was over and that Seth Green’s Detours was going on ice, but it seems that some other, previously secret projects may have also come unstuck.

Or maybe not. Maybe these secret projects live on…

An IMDB user posted what appear to be several pages from a TV show’s “bible,” or perhaps just a pitch document. These give some details on what the show would be about in general, not on a week-to-week basis.

It’s called Star Wars: Reclamation and it seems rather interesting. The show was apparently given the green light in January of this year, but then went on hold after the lay-offs.

There’s a chance this could be the in-development new animated project that Disney are working on with Clone Wars vet Dave Filoni, or at least some other going concern, still in the works at the studio. A January green light is promising, right?

And we’ve been told that Filoni’s new show will take place in a hitherto unexplored bit of Star Wars continuity – at least, hitherto unexplored on screen. And so it is with Reclamation, which takes place fifteen years after Return of the Jedi – and presumably fifteen years or so before Episode VII.

Of course, there’s another possibility. This might all be some kind of hoax. We’ll see.

For now, have a look at this little lot. Pay attention to the early promise of:

an all-new story designed to introduce the audience to themes and characters pivotal to Episode VII and beyond.

And now, give me your theories on who this ‘Shade’ is. I’m betting Luke Skywalker, but is that too obvious?
