The Star Wars episode 7 plot could feature a new group of mercenaries known as the Mandalorians as the main antagonists.

A new rumor reported on by the Latino Review claims that this group will be fighting against the Jedi heroes in the film. The Mandalorians exist in other Star Wars media and are a group of nomadic warriors who serve as hunters and mercenaries. Bobo Fett and Jango sported the Mando armor in previous Star Wars films.

The new movie might also feature Sith Witches known as Nightsisters. Both of these groups gained popularity through other forms of Star Wars media such as the Clone Wars animated series.

Other rumors pointed to Episode 7's villains being a trio of Jedi Hunters played by Lupita Nyong'o, Adam Driver and David Oyelowo. They just might be hunting in the Mando armor.

Harrison Ford who plays Hans Solo in the upcoming film broke his leg two weeks ago, not just his ankle as it was originally reported.

BBC clarified the story last week stating that Ford broke his left leg and had successful surgery on the limb. His U.S. publicist confirmed the news.

"He will begin rehab shortly," she said. "He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."

Ford is expected to return to the set once his leg heals.

Various media outlets reported two weeks ago that the actor's ankle shattered when the door on Hans Solo's Millennium Falcon ship fell on it. It was originally labeled as a "bad ankle injury" that he was being hospitalized for in London.

The studio will continue filming and pushed Ford's scenes to the end of the schedule so that there would be no serious delays. The film hits theaters in December 2015.
