SPOILER MSW Leaks so far: A hint of what's to come for the KoR?

    Pretty much the entire plot of The Force Awakens leaked, via the coded call sheets/shooting schedule. MakingStarWars drip-fed it, MillenniumFalcon.com dumped the whole lot in one go a couple of weeks before the release date. Tonnes of concept art, set photos and pages from some of the junior storybooks leaked too, a lot of it exclusive to this very site - Costume pics of Ackbar, Nien Nunb and Luke spring to mind.
    Nothing so comprehensive for The Last Jedi, but the visual dictionary leaked before release, that had some fairly big spoilers in it. A few set photos and costume pics escaped.

    You've got to bear in mind, sites like MSW are only interpreting pieces of artwork and whatever else they have, and trying to piece it together. For TFA, the call sheets were written with substitute names for characters, places, items and locations etc - obviously some of the things were interpreted incorrectly for a long time. And there were unused concepts and dropped sequences thrown into the mix. We still knew the basic story outline and could work out specific points such as - for example - Kylo killed Han, Artoo had the missing piece of the map and the final shot was Rey offering the lightsaber to Luke.

    If you told me what I am eating for lunch next Tuesday, where at, and how much it will cost, I'd still be impressed and believe you had some kind of genuine insight, even if you got the colour shirt I wore on that day wrong. That's the way spoilers go.

    People seem to reject the idea that Disney/LucasFilm could possibly allow any of this stuff to leak, and I'm not sure why. Because, history has shown time and time again this stuff does leak, however tight we are led to believe security is. The plot for all three prequel movies was known before release. Same for TFA. TLJ, like I said, they did a pretty good job keeping under wraps but some stuff still got out there.

    The bottom line is, many thousands of people work on these movies - electricians, labourers, cleaners, caterers, delivery guys... Not just directly involved in the production, but with the companies involved in merchandising and spin-off material. And every one of them has friends and family.

    The problem - I think - is that these websites run by people who have a friend of a friend who is connected in some way can sometimes play it as if they know more than they really do. Try to act as if they are sitting on the holy grail. They know a guy who managed to sneak a photo of a prop. A guy who had access to a set and was able to describe it. A guy who works for a publishing company who was able to see some concept artwork that had been passed on. If they got lucky, a guy who managed to bag a copy of a coded shooting schedule. And they are trying to piece all that together to work out how it fits into the bigger picture. And I think that rubs some fans up the wrong way and breeds mistrust when the website holding the information pretends to know everything before they actually do...

    But that's just my two cents... :)

    I was once privy to photos taken of the cast of one of the prequels... including aliens etc. weeks before they were released. I purposely had to be very careful at how I had seen them, I think I even tried to give a tip to one of the Star Wars fan sites, yes there were quite, a few even then. I didn't know anything other than what I saw. Plot wise, it was useless. But it was cool.

    Reminds me of that one time when I set /theboards/ on fire with the ROTS Novelization's dialog from from the Duel in the Chancellor's office.

    Had TFN all up in a tizzy bc no one knew who I was.... so I got denounced until the spoilz were vetted by Motee / MF.com.

    Pretty sure I ruined more than one childhood.


    Then, that sock became a mod a few years later. lolz.


    (pwned)What constitutes a spoiler these days.... makes me cackle.(pwned)

    Cool - remember that well. ;)
    I seem to recall there was a description of the Mace/Anakin/Palpatine scene that caused similar uproar too - can't remember whether that was one of the novelization leaks or not though now... seems so long ago.

    This is correct. I posted the novel dialog (I jumped Motee's schedule once it he got close) for the scene and someone else who had access to the first draft called bs....

    it was a bantha poodoo show for ALMOST 2 whole days.... which, back then was like two eternities plus hell freezing over. It ended the instant Motee was a super sport about all of it.... and simply said its legit. IIRC: My OG post was linked at MF.com until TFN merged 3SA with PT and lost about a third of all the old content. I haven't logged in there since I retired from modding, but I think the title was Windu's last line that I quoted. Anyways, those were the days... the days of REAL Spoilers Allowed.

    The internet was a lot more new back then...less of trying to be "Special" and "scoop" than it is today

    Whatever the case, there are not nearly enough leaks for Episode IX. So the argument that Lucasfilm is plugging leaks is, in fact, true. I knew the entire plot for TFA 4 months prior to its release.

    Does anybody know why making Star Wars is taking so dang long in between episodes these days?

    BOOM IS RIGHT!!! NICE FIND!!!
    Rey is a product of Palpatine? Does that make her a clone? Or is she genetically modified? Did Palpatine discover her as a force sensitive child, or did he want to mold her into his next dark disciple? Yet, she has parents... :confused:

    Why were Rey's parents hiding her on Jakku? And by God, who killed her parents with the Sith dagger? Was it a Bounty Hunter? or was it a Sith Trooper? Are Sith secrets similar to what we call red tape? Is that why Creepio's eyes are red? very cool indeed

    This got me thinking.... if the flashback rumor is true and sets the table for Leia's Jedi prowess, what about a flashback to Palpatine killing Darth Plagueis?

    I'm thinking flashback Leia and Luke gets around the "we won't CG Carrie" because clearly even if she were alive still, they'd have to CG them younger anyway. "Present Day" Leia will be from extra footage and they'll use body doubles if she appears in training with Rey. I would think Leia even did some training with Ben before she sent him to Master Luke's academy.

    I agree. I strongly doubt that "they" will do a CGI/body-double Carrie Fisher, but "they" very well could do a young Leia that way without coming off as disrespectful or anything. Also, this might very well be Billie Lourd's contribution to the Leia character! Please, JJ, make it so! :D

    Edit: Yeah... So, I went back to check and now I cannot find the Jason Ward quote on his vids... Did I dream him saying the RJ stuff? Weird...

    ]What I am totally apprehensive in one rumor I've read a few times is the following:

    [SPOILER="Rey Rumor" Rey will give herself the last name Skywalker at the end of the film. If she is not related to the Skywalkers by blood/marriage, why would you give her that name? It feels like a copout. I would rather have an original last name.][/SPOILER]

    rumor has it that her last name is Palpatine so that is why she takes the name Skywalker
