    Most of it is probably because they’re making it up as they go along or trying to sell speculation as spoiler. :) But I think in this case, and probably others, I think you’ll see rumors linked to the new character because now “scoopers” know what questions to ask. It’s hard to dig up information from a source when you don’t know what questions to ask. The more info you have in order to form detailed and specific questions, the more likely you are to squeeze something of relevance out of them.

    I'll try to dig it up for you later. It was linked to wherever I first saw the news break last week on twitter. I was literally sitting on a ride in Disney World at the time, so I don't really remember what site it was or how reliable it was. But I can't search twitter at work, so I'll try to get a chance to check later to night and see if I can find it.

    love fassbender but really don't want him "as" fett.
    he has way too much charisma to ever don a full helmet (full frontal joke "inserted" here)

    From the website that brought you Michael Fassbender could be the new Boba Fett mantle wearer, comes...Tatiana up for the role of Sabine Wren from Rebels.

    http://ikwiz.com/article.asp?id=9030&name=Female Character Name Revealed For 2016 Star Wars Standalone Film… OMG!

    Even when not taking into account the heroes of Rebels are multiracial and Pablo Hidalgo commented on it (not like Hollywood casting cares about these things), I don't see the connection between Sabine and the Mara sisters, Felicity Jones, and Maslany.

    I don't really get that either. I feel like they went out of their way to show that Sabine was Asian (or space-Asian - you know what I mean). I don't think they'd ignore that in an adaptation, even if Hollywood doesn't hire nearly enough Asian actors and actresses.

    This whole thing reeks of someone seeing some concept art of a female in mandalorian armor, or a descriptions stating the character is a spunky young rebel with an attitude "akin to Sabine" and taking it literally. It wouldn't completely shock me if true, and wouldn't be the worst case scenario for the female lead, but it strikes me as unlikely. Sounds like someone patching together some unknown spoiler with facts and characters they know to complete the equation. Like Jurassic park with Frog DNA and dinosaurs, blindly filling gaps with known info usually ends up biting you in the ass....literally.

    Not having seen her work I think Tatiana looks like a good choice.

    As for the Mara sisters, I prefer Kate to Roony.

    Check out Orphan Black. Even if you just watch the pilot to get an idea of her ability (although she gets even better as the show presses on). Her ability to inhabit multiple characters and make them completely distinct people is amazing. Even better when she plays one character impersonating a second...the nuance and skill she brings to that show floors me on a regular basis.

    Read the article. She was one of the frontrunners.

    Yes I had read that but it was being reported that she had been cast. Guess it was just a conflicting report.

    We have no idea who her character is but if a movie was centered on Boba Fett or Han Solo, I don't imagine her being the main character, rather the lead female (most important woman).
