    Apologies first, this may need moving.

    I've started training some new guys at a new location, got talking to a lad whose wife works for mama's and pappa's.

    They have a contract with Disney to sell their stuff in store and last weekend she went to a Disney conference in London. Some of the below is quite sketchy, as in his words "she doesn't even know who Darth Vader is"

    - Got a timeline shown of movies to 2020, underneath these was a director attached;
    - They were then told they done all major casting to 2020 and even more up to 2017
    - They were shown several clips and story boards of TFA and R0 and EP8
    - They played them the first two teasers and a small clip with (in his words) "the guy dressed in black")
    - Disney are running the movie 1 month early to employees at a theatre in London at £70 (potential leaks at this time)

    She brought home some toys including rancor with an extended arm and a couple of vehicles. He says there is some stickers of TFA, he said he'll bring some stuff in to work next week.

    Sorry this doesn't seem much, or as big as the EW stuff (this info would have seemed bigger last week)

    Pretty cool that they reckon they have directors and major casting sorted til 2020 though.

    Badass alert!!We have a bad ass over here :D

    Looks like you got some MAJOR intel. To me this is bigger news than the reversed scene in the Korean Trailer. Sounds like Disney is WAY ahead in time. Not gonna be hitting you with Force-Lightening if you post some cheeky pictures :D

    I don't get it. Why would they show that kind of info to people who work for "a UK-based retailer and manufacturer supplying prams, pushchairs, baby products, furniture and maternity wear"? Don't get me wrong, you clearly didn't just create your account and I don't want to imply you're lying but this really doesn't make any sense to me :confused:.
    Why do people selling diapers with the Star Wars logo need to see episode 8 story boards or future casting info?

    I'm on the fence, if it was Disney holding a conference to ALL it's major merchandising distributors then it might be true, just seems like Mama's and Papa's might be a little TOO trivial with what they could sell. Who knows time will tell, hopefully it's authentic and we get an extra source of information!

    I don't have any idea what Mama's and Papa's is, but I can tell you my local Babies R Us doubles as a Toys R Us, and I guarantee they are in on all this stuff.
    I thought we dispelled the rumor that he was a whiny Sith wannabe baby? :D

    It was a full Disney chain expo, not just mamas and papas.

    There were a few people thrown out of the whole convention for taking photos.

    He said the clip of what I presume was kylo rent was played on a projector so they had to turn around, it was deleted (I presume they could see the desktop) immediately after.

    Got these delightful things as a gift off work colleague. Seems his wife was correct about directors as well. He's going to try and get some more even if vague info off his wife
