Could we be seeing two fan favorite factions making appearances in Episode VII? Latino Review is reporting that Mandalorians and "Sith Witches" (possibly nightsisters) will be appearing in the new film. The Mandalorians are suppose to play a major role in the film, and some are already drawing connections between this and the rumors Jedi Hunters/Inquisitors being the villains in Episode VII.
Both Mandalorians and Nightsisters (if that's what there Sith witches turn out to be, if they're even in the film) are fan favourites, despite never having actually appeared in a Star Wars film (unless you count Boba and Jango Fett wearing Mandalorian armor). They draw their popularity from the now non canon Legends universe of books and comics, as well as The Clone Wars animated series.
While both Mandos and Sith witches would make interesting villains, neither of them make me any more or less excited about Episode VII. They would both serve the purpose of having significant villains without having to bring the Sith back, though I'm hoping they go in a completely new direction and give us a villain we've never heard of before.
As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
