    Fawn is a poor excuse for a name that makes little sense except as a pun.

    It rhymes with Han (female + Han = Fan/Fawn)

    Oh so clever.

    The guy (whoever it is) looks quite tall with flowing dark hair.

    I wondered a few days ago about where Driver disappeared to. Getty Images has photos of him up to the 7th of September.

    I cropped and color corrected the set photos:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Cropped recent photo of Driver for purpose of commentary and comparison. His ear is half-covered here and his hair made up to be voluminous:
    [​IMG]

    Other photos:
    http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?contractUrl=2&language=en-US&family=editorial&assetType=image&p=adam driver

    The other fellow in the pictures may or may not be Boyega. Doesn't quite look muscular enough and seems to be a little taller. Could be off though. Rick did film video of a scene involving him with the AD or whoever yelling his name so he is there. Somewhere.

    I sort of learned my lesson with blurry ass photography when The Dark Knight Rises filmed outside Wollaton Hall not to put real faith in this.

    Production names aren't necessarily indicative of what the actual names of the characters will be. For instance, during the Skellig Michael shoot, it was semi-confirmed that Luke Skywalker's production name in the film is Obi-Wan, even though that's not fooling anybody.

    I'm willing to just admit that everything we read and hear is completely rumors and false information put out to throw people off of what the real plot of the story is. Some bits may have truth in them but remember that JJ is a master of secrecy with his work. And hell, Star Wars wouldn't be as much fun if I knew exactly what the hell was gonna happen.

    On that note, is anyone willing to go through some old websites and see what sort of zany rumors and leaks came up for Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness while each movie was in production? Just as a frame of reference to know how close people actually came to the mark.

    Maybe Driver is Han and Leia's son and Ridley's brother. He could start off as a hero and be the guy corrupted by the dark side. In this trilogy, I'm sure they aren't going through this trilogy without SOMEBODY from the Skywalker line tempted by or turning to the dark side.

    On The Force.NET forums, I posted a speculation about how each trilogy has passed a "baton" down to the next generation of heroes. Anakin and Padme passed the baton down to their children Luke and Leia. So the Sequels could be Han and Leia passing baton down to their children as a way of saying "We did our part in saving the galaxy. Now it's your turn."

    Just some random thoughts... If that IS Adam Driver in the rebel flight suit, he isn't JUST "Male Lead Villan" (unless he is one of the children, and he falls from grace)

    If that IS Gwendoline at the Greenham set, and that is her in costume, doesn't lend to her being an Imperial Officer

    WHY is anyone supporting the idea that Lando (a hero of the Rebellion) would have a son who is a tie fighter pilot? Anyone wanna explain how that would work? 'Specially if Crystal Clarke is Lando's daughter and on the good side?

    So if I read this right, Han is gonna fight Luke and die... Luke dies and becomes Emperor...

    JJ would never throw our red herrings... that would just be SO totally unlike him...

    Luke dies and becomes emporer.....that doesn't make sense to me I assume you mean the name Luke Skywalker is dead and he is Darth whatever like anikan was dead from a certain point of view

    I may have jacked up the order but I don't get the Luke Skywalker dies and becomes emporer if it's the certain point of view thing I guess...but I don't think Luke will fall to the dark side

    The original post I was quoting says:

    Mark Hamill
    62
    Jedi, Luke Skywalker’s character dies, becomes Emperor

    One would think if there was ANYONE in the universe that wouldn't, it would be the man who faced the emperor AND his father and didn't bend... of course, he never had to save his wife and child before, so there are temptations he has not felt... but...

    Here is the thing to remember... for TRUE evil to arise, they have to think they are acting for the good.... people will commit the most hineous attrocities if they believe they are acting for the good
