    Yes ;) So cool!

    But certainly haven't seen them since the day they appeared. So, thank you for reminding me @The Futurition

    Hope to get something next couple of weeks ;P

    Cheers!

    To be honest when those images were released they didn't even trend which is unfortunate. I enjoyed them though.

    I don't think leaks tend to trend, because they're not intended to be seen by the masses anyway. Why that photo is still up though, I'm surprised.

    They were taken by a national newspaper in the UK? It wasn't some random dude. That's why I was surprised. The canto bite shots were everywhere, these weren't. Heck even the reporter in Dubrovnik was ejected and made to leave. Not even a ripple was made with these photos.

    There really wasn't much to really talk about anyway. That will change once the IX trailer gets released.

    I don't know what interview the source of that allegation is, but the reddit user 'Xyzsvtabc' that was mostly backed up by Making Star Wars said the same thing. (Here's your daily reminder that most everything on reddit is BS with the very rare person who actually knows anything.)

    So did Mike Zeroh a few weeks ago so there is that. ;)

    Episode IX time Jump

    I would have preferred a larger time jump, of say 3 years (assuming this is true). But oh well.

    How does one "steal ideas" when it comes to outright speculation and rumors? I get it, the guy is annoying to some extent. But I don't see why so many people give him crap. I wish I had the time and equipment to make 5 Star Wars speculation videos per day! I'd probably make more money doing that than I make at my current job. :)

    The source of the John Boyega revelation comes from the recent Empire magazine film issue. As for the leaker from reddit? concensus is it's more real than fake.

    As for Mike Zeroh? that's his full time job. He tirelessly scours the internet for any recent Star Wars information, spins it and makes it his own, no matter how fake it is. I suspect he also runs the account the Stupendous wave.

    Mike is that you? lol....

    He is mostly dishonest with claims of insider information. He would be a lot more respected if he just came clean and really youtubed as a fan with speculative videos... Worst part? the UK express media take his crap and post it as an article.

    No, I'm 1. Older, 2. Smarter, 3. Sexier. :D:D:D

    But seriously, from what I've seen (and I haven't seen much) he does say it's not guaranteed, etc... Or something to that extent. Anyway, anyone who takes what he is presenting as if it is coming from the mouth of JJ Abrams is insane anyway. Truly the only thing which bugs me about him, and why I can't watch him often, is his syntax and way of speaking. It just bugs the crap out of me.

    But hey, to each his own. He obviously has an audience and good for him.

    For me, that ritual started in 1998. Reading about spoilers, discovering the pod racers which l thought were cool aliens harkening back to the Cantina denizens. Reading about aliens with a Jamaican accent. Watching the web diaries on the official Star Wars site. Repeating for every Star Wars film thereafter. Yet again it begins, how can I hate a Star Wars film when this ritual has become a satisfying part of my life? Buying Merchandise on Force Fridays, reading the books connected to films, it all culminates until the film is released.

    Because he's 99.9% wrong always. He also doesn't make it speculation and rumors. He takes from others and makes it his own as fact.

    Had Mike Zeroh been an actual video speculator, there would've been nothing wrong with his channel (except for taste). However, he isn't that. MZ is a lies-mongerer who makes cash off of deceiving the fan base (mostly) with his claims of "scoops" and "leaks" and "insider information". He passes speculations off as factual information, flat-out claiming his guesswork and rehash of other sources as legitimate and privileged SW insight; and he does this with such brash arrogance and straight face that even media outlets believes he's a "Star Wars expert". That's right, MZ's lies has THAT broad an impact.

    He also stokes hatred and harassment, and refuses to cite sources, even at the cost of friendships. The way he's behaving, it seems to me that MZ is one of the most unlikable people on the internet, which says something. And it would've been so easy for him to avoid this; just clarify he's speculating, cite his sources, and muster up some general decency and responsibility (you know, like other good speculation & analysis channels do), and no one would have had any problems with him. But no, MZ keeps lying to dupe us into clicking his links, laughing all the way to the bank. I cannot for the life of my understand why any fans of our beloved franchise would defend this guy... it boggles my mind.

    What do you mean "even at the cost of friendships"? Haven't heard that one.
