For a while there have been rumors that a very familiar planet may show up in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and a new interview just fueled those rumors more.
While talking with the Associated Press, Oscar Isaac may have accidentally gave a bit of Poe Dameron’s back story:
“What’s actually very interesting is that Yavin … at the end of the very first ‘Star Wars’ … that last scene was shot in Guatemala and you know, I think that Poe Dameron is from that planet … and that’s a beautiful coincidence,” he said.
Ever since the first leaks of The Force Awakens stuff began there was word of a jungle planet. At one point some of these jungle planet shots were going to be used in the second teaser for the film, and those who saw them believed it was Yavin IV.
The thing is the cast has been very careful to not reveal any details about the movie, so Oscar Isaac casually saying that Poe is from Yavin kind of goes against that. Which means he could’ve been joking, it’s just hard to know.
