    I've followed the person that the article sources on their earlier Marvel leaks and those have proven to be true. So while I haven't seen the documents that MSW clearly came across to verify this info, I can verify that they're not making this up based on their prior track record.

    Also of note: they confirmed that we're getting the Knights of Ren in this one. Keri Russell, don't let me down...

    Personally, Im not "over-thinking" anything. I'm just having a bit of fun. Rey having a laser scimitar-like weapon is completely ridiculous... This is why I'm grateful for JJ's "unoriginality" and having a taste infinitely better than mine.

    Here's the most common sense post I've seen on this subject. A new Rey saber and a new Kylo mask equals more new toys. Every little kid is going to want to latest versions of the mask and saber, which will be hitting stores just in time for Christmas 2019.

    @p03, please use spoiler tags :)

    All these rumors sound pretty cool to me! I think the Kylo-remasked thing makes much sense, and besides the logic that the mask makes it easier for him to be evil, I think there’s another possible reason for it as well – the re-unmasking of Ben Solo/Kylo Ren. Faces (or the lack thereof) are, as we know, critical to actor’s performances and audience response, and we might be looking at a re-unmasking moment in Ep.IX. Either, Kylo will do loads of evil while wearing the mask and when he’s finally unmasked his eyes will have turned that familiar sithian-evil-red (“shock! Horror!”), and/or we’ll end Ep.IX with an unmasking that (like with Vader in RotJ) symbolizes Ben’s redemption and rejection of the dark side (possibly with eyes having turned back to normal). (kylo ren)

    Now, the only thing I’m a bit apprehensive about in MSW’s recent news is the addition of another droid friend for BB-8. While I have no problem in general with new droids, and I do understand JJ’s obsession with adding tons of new stuff at the expense of old things (being creative and all), I would much rather see a proper plot & appearance for R2 & 3PO in Ep.IX (you know, the guys who started the entire SW franchise, more or less) than having them sidelined again by another cute/funny/awesome robo-hero. That said, a new droid brought into the story by Lando is VERY likely (and quite understandable) at this point. Whatever they end up doing with this, I hope (but I’m not very optimistic) that R2 & 3PO will shine again in the final saga film. (c-3po)(r2-d2 2)

    Can’t wait to see what the Kights of Ren are all about! :D

    Sorry I never thought. I can't go and edit the post now, perhaps one of the mods can help out.

    I don't think you should have to, tbh. They should be considered as rumors and nothing more. Claiming them as "spoilers" gives it a sort of credibility to the rumor (for lack of a better word).

    I put a SPOILER tag next to the thread title, however considering the title, it should be self-evident.

    My two cents: I think spoiler tags should be mandatory in this thread. There's another one for leaks and it would be cool if we kept this one safe for those who wish to stay careful.

    I will be honest, as a long time poster I should have known. However, learning from the past I know some peeps on here don't like clicking on the MSW site and that was my over riding thought for the bullet points. If you look back through my history I sometimes copy and paste the article and the link and change the colour of the text. I very rarely use bullet points if at all. I live learn, I still remember the night Jason got banned and he started abusing people on here. Along time ago and water under the bridge so to say. It was just a conscious mistake. As I said, sorry guys xxx and thanks Trevor for the tag. :)

    No worries, we have the spoiler tag for a title prefix, so most people should be wary coming in here.

    I thought for your post it might be helpful because it was a bit more detailed, so better safe than sorry! :)

    Thanks for sharing it, though!
