There have been rumors that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) might be going to the Dark Side in "Star Wars: Episode VII", and now it seems the whole crew of Jedi could follow suit.

In a recent episode of its online series "Ask Drew", HitFix dropped a hint about the new film and how the Jedi will fit in:

One of the things that you should expect is the Jedi ABSOLUTELY have a major role in this next trilogy, but it may not be the role that we expect. The events that we’ve seen in the other films have definitely taken a toll in terms of how the universe of "Star Wars" sees the Jedi and how they see them as an active force. I think it’s safe to say that they are not considered a pure, good thing anymore and that Jedi in general are going to be a very interesting, difficult topic in the new films.

I think that anything we’ve already seen in these movies we should be prepared to let go of because I don’t think they’re covering the same ground. It’s a very, very exciting moment to be a "Star Wars"' fan in general.

This could be big. The Jedi have always served as something of a moral compass in the series. It was a big enough deal when Anakin turned to the Dark Side and became Darth Vader, but what would happen if, following the fall of the Empire, the Jedi became the oppressive force of the galaxy?

Do you think we'll be seeing a more villainous side of the Jedi in the new trilogy?
