[Movies] How Is Star Wars Connected To The Mayan Apocalypse?
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.18.2012

Reuters reports that the Star Wars saga is connected in some way to the Mayan-predicted apocalypse which is supposed to happen on Friday. This is the end of the Maya Long Count calendar.

The Mayan city of Tikal was used as the rebel base on Yavin 4 in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. The area has been popular for both Star Wars fans and those interested in the Mayans.

The temple itself, according to Reuters, is surrounded by a jungle that includes jaguars, monkeys and toucans. It hasn't changed much since 1977.

According to sources of the website, the Yavin 4 rebel base will play into plot of Star Wars Episode VII, which was announced in October after Disney bought Lucasfilm. Reuters claims that Luke Skywalker returns to the site to build a Jedi Knight academy. It's likely Disney will film those scenes in a studio instead of Tikal.

It's entirely possible that this is only speculation, however. The film will be released in 2015.
