    Perfect! This bit of information is good to know for a piece I have yet to post, as it gives me a sign that I'm on the right track...

    I didn't even understand where this paranoia came from, the whole paranoia with reshooots and stuff. Can't wait to see it.

    It's more like it seemed like it was one of those scenes that was at risk of being cut from the final product for whatever reason, akin to the Avengers: Age Of Ultron scene of a mysterious woman entering a cave that was advertised at one point but was nowhere to be found in the movie itself.

    Yeah but what objectively led us to that conclusion, I mean there was simply nothing as an indicator, you can say that about pretty much every other scene then too.

    It is like schroedingers scene. Chill and take a look.

    *****POTENTIAL SPOILERS*****

    I'm sure someone has already reported on this but I've just read, on a random website, that this cloaked figure and the scene itself is far from what we all probably believed/hoped for!

    I was getting really excited at the prospect of this mystery man being a secret/unknown character that has been working with (or under the guidance of) Vader; Kneeling down before him on his bacta tank........apparently we're all WRONG. The story I've just read suggests that the 'mystery man' is indeed Galen Erso who is down on his knees after seeing the power core of the Death Star (NOT a bacta tank) and realising what this immense power will soon be used for. The royal guards are apparently there because.....well, it is the fuse box for the biggest weapon of mass destruction that the galaxy has ever known!

    All that read and said, we all know by now that Vader IS seen in the movie floating around in a bacta tank
    but I fear the trailer is showing us a red herring with miss direction......two different scenes assumed to be of the same by us, the speculators.

    I myself am not sure if this is fact or fiction but I'll find out for myself next Saturday.......come on release day for the UK :)

    Why is it missdirection if we speculated wrong, thx btw if this is not fan speculation, for spoiling it to me.

    the good thing is that it sounded like a fake story on reddit.

    EDIT: Thank god you didn't spoil it it is fake.

    Did I come close to spoiling it for you???? Awwwwww....then perhaps you should have averted your attention to THE BOLD CAPITALS that clearly read 'POTENTIAL SPOILERS' rather than worrying about someone raining on your parade. Having said that; If you aren't interested in knowing before viewing......just how did you come across the story over on reddit??????? Hmmmmmmm. Contradiction me thinks.

    In addition; I'm a massive fan of these movies; They're very close to my heart however to believe that every 'true' fan hunts down EVERY piece of speculation from ALL sources suggests we live exceptionally one dimensional lives......presumably like yours. Either way I sincerely hope you enjoy Rogue One and all others that are to follow......,irrespective of being slightly drawn into a nerd battle, I know I will.

    This thread, is not marked as a spoiler first of all, what is the problem with using the spoiler tag.
    Whatever you write in your capital letters, sometimes things pop up in perimeter sight that could spoil things, even if you don't read it.

    I read that reedit threat for amusement since I knew it was fake it wasn't that much of a big deal.

    Not every true fan may go with your definition of a true fan and may want to see things in the theater, not a forum, so please respect out forum policies and use the spoiler tag.

    It's long since been confirmed that no, Snoke is absolutely not in Rogue One. Much less that scene. Besides, the cloaked figure is way too short to be seven to eight feet, and I have my reservations about them fitting someone of that size into a tank that looks to be no bigger than the one they dunked Luke Skywalker into.

    We're not going to have the faintest idea of who Snoke really is until Episode VIII at the earliest. They won't waste putting his backstory into any medium that isn't a film (unless you believe that whole "Gallius Rax is Snoke" theory, which is pretty unlikely considering that they've basically said that Snoke is not a human at this point).

    So what's with the whole Galen kneeling before the power (kyber) cell or whatever they called it, kneeling because he see's the power of what he's created or something to that effect? I'm sure you've heard this one.

    It is fake and this is the bs they posted on reddit.

    So just had a look what I voted for here, and I stick with it. Could be Vader, no one else is worthy of royal guards.
