Star Wars Episode VII: 5 Starships That Should Return
Theres been lots of talk about who might be returning for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. Will Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia or Lando Calrissian be coming back? Will The Emperor or even Darth Vader return from the grave? Will Ahsoka Tano make an appearance? Its all, quite rightly been character focused thus far but theres something else about the Star Wars Saga that we all love. Starships! Star Wars starships are as much loved as some of the characters and given the return to the Galaxy far, far away, you would imagine wed see some of them return too. Looking at all existing six episodes, George Lucas was sure to make the two trilogies distinctly different in ship technology in order to make the two eras visually different. However he was also sure to let us know that many ship designs informed us where the evolution of Star Wars vehicles went as the original trilogy rolled around in the chronological order of the story. Early speeder bikes popped up, more beautifully designed star ships were put in to represent a galaxy at peace and then over a course of three films they slowly changed to represent a more war torn look as the Clone Wars swept through the galaxy. The Star Wars starships are very much a key visual to the new trilogy but given that these new films are sequels and not prequels, what fan favourite ships should return and more so why?
