    I have noticed that lately we haven't had too many leaks. It appears that most of the sources have run dry and there simply is not more to share.

    I find it actually very interesting that Disney has been so successful in keeping the plot from leaking. We are just about a month away from the movie and just as ignorant as we were two-three months ago. I remember reading more in spring, and summer -- for example, MSW plot summary. It was interesting, hearing all these rumors about a hand floating in the sky, about Han dying, etc. But now... nothing. Silence, except for the official Disney-controlled movie marketing.

    Do you think this will entail that the future sequel parts will be kept as well in secret? Maybe even better than TFA? It is possible that some false plot/trailer descriptions were leaked just to find out moles in Disney. So, maybe now these leaks have been found and "eliminated".

    Will it consequently mean that we will have less to speculate on when it comes to the next films?

    Or does it even matter?

    Myself: Even if I do enjoy certain kind of mystery when it comes to big plot revelations, I also enjoy getting some glimpses of the movie, and occasionally this not-knowing nearly anything makes me really itchy.

    I think there's a sort of Cold War going on. I have no doubt Disney will try to be as secretive next time -- don't forget, the second acts of Star Wars trilogies often have big surprises. But I think the drone-flyers and leakers will be working twice as hard. It's also possible that Rian Johnson will deliberately be looser with some stuff just so people aren't so voracious. I have a feeling a lot of this is not Disney's mandate, but rather Abrams'.

    Could be. JJ is notorius of his red herrings and such. But I think I read recently that he also has mentioned that the level of secrecy Disney requires is something even he is not used to.

    I remember that there was very little released as well about Avengers: Age of Ultron; Marvel is Disney owned company. I wonder how much directors have independence when it comes to releasing material? I would think that in an organisation such as Disney most of the things have to be accepted with marketing department/big bosses?

    On a scale from 1 to 100 for secrecy, TFA must be scoring at least a 95 right now. They had a few leaks early on with the AT-AT and Milenium Falcon sets, but since then it's really been almost perfect.

    I don't know if it's possible for future episodes to be as unknown as The Force Awakens. If only for the fact that right now the universe is basically a blank slate. There are 30 unknown years so we have no basis for speculation. After we all watch TFA though, we will have a very clear idea of where the galaxy is at and we will have a pretty good idea of the direction they're heading. That's going to make it much easier to speculate, and because of that I think we're bound to figure some things out before Ep 8 is released.

    I think they will be secretive on Episodes 8 & 9 but not as much, only large plot points.

    After we meet Rey, Finn, Poe and Kylo Ren in TFA we will be able to discuss them alot more in the leadup to Episode 8.

    We don't even know their last names (Other then Poe Dameron) as anyone of them can be related to someone from the OT? Anyone of them could be a Jedi?

    I think the actors will be able to discuss more about their character next time as they won't have to secret about whether they are a Skywalker, Solo, etc.
