    Well I just mean in general, wasn't pin pointing anyone.

    I've seen a lot more negativity at the idea then I have seen positivity. That's for sure lol.

    SWU's sources have also told them that Kira isn't just a production name.

    Note up front, this is all speculation talk and fun. With all the rumors flying around, I'm beginning to lose track of whats been debunked / cut out from the latest fan summaries; especially surrounding the first act of the film. I'm beginning to think that there is more than meets the eye to that recent round of Reddit rumors involving a different opening to the film. I went back to the initial reports of the severed hand and rumored plot summary from BadAssDigest and around that time Brian Cameron from Jedi News tweeted...



    Now, lets suppose that everyone's knowledge at the time was still fuzzy about Tatooine, and anyone exposed to leaks assumed any desert imagery was supposed to be Tatooine rather than Jakku. Could there be some ships involved and a crash landing along with the lightsaber falling to the ground? Perhaps the lightsaber was involved in the ship crash and gets ejected. What if the First Order already has the lightsaber at the beginning of the film and Poe steals it from them with the help of BB-8, then crash lands on the planet, with the lightsaber coming lose on the way down? Its an interesting mix of several rumors, and may lend some much needed context to the random lightsaber coming down from space.

    Next up on the forgotten rumor front is the Cantina / reveal of the lightsaber on Jakku. Until details of the Maz's pirate lounge came about, there were a ton of rumors and even concept art that seemed to point to a Cantina type scene on Jakku, where BB-8 would reveal the lightsaber to Rey & Finn, they supposedly get some details about the lightsaber from a cyborg dude. Was this debunked somewhere? I'm tempted to do yet another version of the plot summaries with some of these thrown back in.

    Just a bunch of people grasping at straws last year.

    We know the village burning happens. It's in the second teaser. It also appears on the JNH leaked merchandise images. We see the Stormtrooper strike team (including a concealed Finn in the first teaser). While we don't see much of Poe in the teasers, we see Poe on his blue X-wing in the Vanity Fair photo shoot on a desert planet. This same X-wing appears in the Force For Change video from July with a pilot on the back lot of Pinewood Studios. Oscar Isaac said that Poe was sent on a mission by Leia and that's how he starts in the movie.

    It's all a part of the opening act.

    I wrote about this in another thread yesterday but I figured that I should post it on here as well:

    So I see that the first full/theatrical trailer for The hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 came out yesterday, June 9, another anticipated movie for 2015. The movie premiers this Fall on November 20. That's exactly 5 months and 10 days from now. [sidenote: I really hated that they did a part 1/ part2 thing with that one. Part 1 left me hanging with the "that's it?" feeling in a disappointing fashion. Hopefully part 2 makes up for that]

    Extrapolating this to TFA with its December 18 release date, my money is on seeing a full/theatrical trailer for TFA next month, around July 7th and if not that day, then definitely by the end of that month. All this is based on the formula I extrapolated from above (as well as from other blockbusters such as Furious 7 when I saw its first full trailer November 1, 2014 and it premiered April 3 of this year).

    And Poe is there because he was sent on a mission by Leia, as per Oscar Isaac's words at Celebration 2015.

    Holly Molly.. July 10th (x-wing)

    So... what do you guys think we should expect for the next Special Look of TFA?

    - Teaser 3?
    - First long Trailer?
    - A scene?

    Do you guys know if there is gonna be a streaming for this first panel of TFA on CCSD like they did on Celebration or not?

    i'd say it has to be full official trailer and D23 will probably get a scene out of context. IMO

    I thought D23 was on the money but looks like i was wrong :D
