Scene descriptions of Kanata’s Castle in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and details about the use of the First Order’s secret superweapon in the movie have surfaced online. Meanwhile, Miltos Yerolemou has confirmed that he is in the cast, and a new image of Ken Leung in his costume has leaked online.
Former “Game of Thrones” cast member Yerolemou has now confirmed his role in the coming movie by adding the film to his resume on Spotlight. The actor will be playing the role of H.M Patron in the J.J. Abrams movie. According to a report by StarWarsPost, he will be seen as a patron of Maz Kanata’s (Lupita Nyong’o) pub inside a castle.
According to a report by MakingStarWars, at some point in the movie Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and the soccer droid BB-8 and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) will be traveling to an unnamed green planet where Kanata’s castle is located. The characters are there to seek Maz’s help.
Rey gets into some trouble with one of the patrons at the pub and Chewbacca is said to step in and save her. It is unclear what Yerolemou’s character will be doing at the pub and if he has a substantial role in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
The character Maz appears to be important to the plot as emissary Korr Sella (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) of the Resistance also wants to comes down to the green planet to meet with her. While the main characters are at the castle, the First Order fires its superweapon Starkiller. The scene in the trailer of Stormtroopers turning around is said to occur when the weapon is fired. Korr Sella is said to perish along with her ship when the blast of the weapon hits. Leia (Carrie Fisher) and the other Resistance fighters are shocked to see the effects of the weapon from the war room.
Leung is said to be one of the members of the Resistance forces. A leaked image of the actor in costume posted on StarWarsUnderworld shows him as a military officer in their ranks. A concept art of a character known as Major Ematt has been posted in another report by StarWarsUnderworld.
Major Ematt is said to be a member of the Resistance who has known Leia from before the Battle of Yavin. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is slated to be released on Dec. 18, 2015, in the U.S.
