According to an article posted on Daily Mail, a legal dispute is currently underway concerning who will be providing the numerous stormtrooper and Wookiee extras that are slated to appear in Episode VII.

It is a story set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away where Jedi knights battle an evil empire.

But before even a phaser has been blasted or a lightsabre drawn in the highly anticipated new Star Wars movie, the first battle is expected to take place at the High Court over who will supply the hundreds of stormtroopers and wookies.

And at the centre of the legal fight is 32-year-old Eleanor McLaughlin who is accused of trying to steal a lucrative contract to provide extras for the forthcoming seventh instalment of the sci-fi saga.

And the potential worst part of this pending legal matter?

Fears have now been raised that the legal fight could delay the shooting of some of the big crowd scenes for Star Wars: Episode VII.

Here’s hoping this entire situation is brought to a swift and amicable resolution without impacting Episode VII’s production in any way.
