    I think he's making a connection between all the Stormtrooper stuff and referring to the file names and images on the Hasbro guy's computer "SW E7 secondary hero battler" because he's working on a Stormtrooper on screen.

    Also: The Hasbro guy is William "Bill" Rawley, whose name is on the desktop and is the guy on the computer. He is the product design manager on the Star Wars toys.

    I think we should make a trophy just for your remarkable SW detective skills. Great to have you!

    People can make up their own minds about what Hasbro's Bill Rawley is working on. It's probably important for him to have whatever he's recently working on right on the desktop screen instead of buried somewhere else.

    Still the Boyega connection comes only from Rebels Report's tweet. And that tweet is pretty vague. At least I don't get it how they came to that conclusion. Maybe I'm missing something?

    Right. That could be any character from Star Wars 7. Maybe Han Solo is Hero 2....who knows.

    I just now noticed that menacing "YOU!" file in the upper-right corner. It's like he knew that people were going to notice it and screengrab it, but he wanted to make sure they got the heebie-jeebies first.

    Making Star Wars picked up on some interesting details based on rumors from a source they had conversed with:
    • Luke is missing at the start of the movie, but he's only been gone for about ten years, not three decades.
    • The guard costumes that were seen at the Greenham Common set (see update seven of this post) were similar to ones shown for concept art of Leia diplomatically discussing something with the Hutt Cartels.
    • One of the antagonists is an aristocrat that may be related to Count Dooku, or at least someone who had a heritage strongly tied to the Clone Wars. The source had posited that Gwendoline Christie's character was related to Count Dooku, but other sources have said that Adam Driver's character is an aristocrat.
    • Moraband is the Sith Homeworld in question, but it apparently goes by different names. (Fingers crossed that one of them is "Korriban".)
    • Daisy Ridley's character has gone under several production names, including Kira, Kera, Sera, and Fawn.
    • A spin-off starring Obi-Wan Kenobi is in discussion, with an art team and a writer working on concepts for the potential film. Incidentally, the first spin-offs will otherwise stay away from Force-users.
