    It's around here on the forum somewhere. A former friend and, IIRC colleague of MZ's, called him out on something MZ took the credit for (not SW related that time, I think). Basically, MZ refused to acknowledge he'd 'borrowed' the thing, even in the face of evidence, and ended up threatening or harassing the friend and his family... something to that extent. MZ seemed to subscribe to an I-can-do-what-I-want-as-long-as-it-benefits-me view, and he didn't come off all that good.

    Apparently some people on Star Wars Leaks Reddit are speculating or hearing from their "sources" that January 9 will have a teaser of some sorts.
    Reasons claimed:

    1. A teaser is seemingly cut:



    2. The date would be punny (1/9/2019 - The month and the year representing episodes 1-9, with 2019 being the year the movie comes out/the year the Skywalker Saga ends)

    3. It's on a Wednesday, so they could drop it with the Star Wars show (or talk about it then).

    4. An artist for Disney has been uploading new art of the episodic movies every day, leading up to his ninth one, which will (theoretically) drop on the ninth:


    5. People just really want it.

    Now do I think the trailer will drop on the Ninth? Not really. I can hope and want and jump at shadows, but what good does that do us right now?

    That account is just taking things off reddit. Yeah Mark is in London but the Thursday and Friday shoot claim apparently came from a 'source' in Australia. A million miles away from London. But yeah he is obviously shooting otherwise he wouldn't be there.

    Most people who post leaks on Reddit... "hot air" is their native tounge.

    Lots of rumors. If are true... Lots of spoilers

    Of course, pinch of salt.

    Coming from Reddit. Mod's just received enough validation to confirm authenticity, although they say some of it is true, some of it isn't or is speculation. You decide.

    Here it is again for those who haven't seen it.

    The following is news that I have accumulated from various sources around the pinewood set, this comes from crew members from the area

    • Domenic Monaghan’s rebel character is named Arvyl - his character initially did not make it past the second act but he has been confirmed to appear late in the film
    • there is a Duros character who has prominence within the resistance
    • Kelly Marie Tran isn’t so much in the action as much as the last Jedi. She is however involved in an action sequence alongside Finn at some point
    • Hux is not involved in the latter of the film. Not to say he dies early, but his power position is diminished and he is not a primary antagonist
    • Richard E Grant plays a tyrannical First Order general
    • the Knights of Ren are certainly in the film and their screen time is surprisingly lengthy - Matt Smith is said to have been on set dressed in dark robes and holding a lightsaber prop
    • Kylo has his helmet re forged but is more often helmetless in the latter half
    • Ben pilots the falcon
    • Keri Russell is involved with Luke’s storyline
    LAST BUT NOT LEAST:

    • Luke is involved in a flashback scene with Han and Leia wherein Ben is dropped off for training to a young Luke - an 8 year old Ben was cast and he will have a talk with Luke about wanting to be a Jedi and a guardian of the good in the galaxy
    • Luke has shot scenes with both Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver
    • Rey visits Tattooine
    EDIT: Poe also flies the falcon, alongside Naomi Ackie’s Vera Calrissian, I forgot about that tidbit. Have a great day/night

    Wonder what Rey would be doing on Tatooine. I would have loved to see Luke or Leia visit their moms grave on Naboo. Why did the Force choose Pademe?

    Agreed. The KOR taking after the Sith and the rule of 2, Rey and Kylo's connection being explored further, battles on a grander scale than we've ever seen, and it all happening in a way that ties everything together? Sign. Me. Up.

    I agree and am super excited for 9 now . Suddenly John Boyega’s comments about war on a huge scale and war to end all wars makes perfect sense . I like the parallels that like black squadron ( Poe comics ) the knights of Ren were on a mission ( the beyond ) and that’s why we didn’t see them in TLJ. And for those of us who are reading the books ( Thrawn Alliances And aftermath trilogy) it sounds like finally we could be getting a truly terrifying ancient foe to unite dark and light ( Jedi and Sith ) against . (yoda):D
    Ps/ I like the sound of the Sith troopers
    :)

    I am very slightly worried about the plot suffering from an inflation of awesome from this, but I trust JJ will prove my worries unfounded. A return of the KoR makes a lot of sense, if for nothing else than to give Rey a lesser obstacle to fight than Kylo early in the film. You know what? I suspect Ep.IX is gonna be great! :D

    (Also, the idea that they would spring Yuuzhan Vong as a new, surprise conflict in the last movie sounds ridiculous to me. One builds a full story around such grand concepts, not throwing them in during the last acts).

    Maybe it's not the last act/movie after all? Setting up an EPX or even a full trilogy is very much possible. Especially if you have JJ, the master of set ups.
