It seems as if each time we approach another holiday we get a little tease from Disney and Lucasfilm about Star Wars. This week there is a rumor circulating that Luke reignites the Jedi training facilities on Yavin 4. For those of you that don’t remember, Yavin 4 was the planet in which the Rebels had their hidden base in Episode IV. 

The Guardian is reporting that: “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.”

This follows suit with the Star Wars Expanded Universe as Luke went back to Yavin 4 and established the Jedi Academy in Kevin J. Anderson’s book with the same title. 

Just a tease and rumor but that is all we have right now. Sound off, Maniacs, those of you that read “Jedi Academy”.
