No, this isn’t the teaser to the new Star Wars episode VII (though it might be kind of cool if it was). According to Director Todd Sandle, this is an homage to the Star Wars franchise and a “proof of concept” for Star Wars: Apprentice.
I’ll be honest, I don’t know too much about the Star Wars expanded universe, and at 1:43, there’s not a WHOLE lot to go on. Although, it does look like the little girl is Jaina Solo (Yes, THAT Solo) since the man refers to her as “Young Solo.” With that in mind, it seems likely that her brother, Jacen Solo would be involved.
Either way, this looks like it’d be an exciting project and I’m sure I’m not the only one that would be excited to see Star Wars: Apprentice in some form, whether on YouTube or otherwise.
