    Where do rumors go to die? Why is it that sometimes rumors reappear? Well friends, its simple. Lack of communication is to blame. So here, in this thread we will lay our old rumors and fan theories to rest. During our journey to The Force Awakens we certainly have seen some wild and interesting rumors. Some more credible then others, but once official word comes out from LFL or the cast then those rumors should be put to rest...accept that they don't. Somehow they keep coming back. But I say no longer!

    here are a few examples of some of the more wild theories that have been dead for a while now.

    Boba Fett is alive and hes being played by Sly Stallone
    Jaku is Tattooine
    RDJ will have a cameo in TFA
    Plagueis has returned


    May they rest in peace...

    and now I invite all of you to say a few words on behalf of all the fallen rumors that have since been crushed. So that they may never return.

    PS I thought we already had a thread similar to this, but I couldn't find it... if you know of one let me know and ill merge the conversations.

    Hey folks, its nearly 1 am here in my neck of the woods and I figured Id make a thread. I dont spend as much time as I used to on the boards, and I almost feel like im out of touch with the core cantina user base. I stay pretty busy with school in full swing, and the podcast. We have a bunch of new usernames floating around, and I really wish that I had more time to get to know all of you better.

    I am new on here and only know of the of the bigger rumors that came out prior to me joining. One that I do remember hearing that I think has died is the rumor about Luke being some kind of villain or turning to the dark side or something like that. Everyone else probably knows this rumor better then I do but lets hope it is dead! I don't want Luke to be evil.

    RIP evil Luke rumor

    There was this cool rumour that Captain Phasma's chrome armor was special and that she could cloak herself and become invisible like the Predator . I liked this idea a lot but i am sad to say that there has been zero zip nada indication that this is true. Surely with all the merch and little facts that has come out something would have indicated this by now ?

    R.I.P Phasma cloaking ability. :( (for me at least)

    EDIT: Smart/great thread by the way. maybe it should get pinned?

    There was a rumor that Chewbacca had a robot arm at one time. And also Luke was a cyborg. Im glad they were false. Luke being evil negates the whole story of the OT

    Max von Sydow is Obi-Wan Kenobi in Ghost Form
    Max von Sydow is Montross (unused character from early drafts)
    Max von Sydow is Lobot
    Man von Sydow is Chancellor Valorum
    Maisie Richardson Sellers is playing the offspring of Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Billie Lourd is playing Princess Leia in a Flashback
    Captain Phasma is a clone of a prequel character (Qui-Gon)
    Samuel L. Jackson (Robert Downey Jr mentioned earlier) and Tom Cruise have cameos in the film
    Simon Pegg in a Cantina Scene: "What good is a Wookiee with one arm?" and proceeds to have his arms ripped off
    Cyborg Luke Skywalker
    Evil Luke Skywalker
    God Mode/Psychopath/Tomb Raider Luke Skywalker
    Luke Skywalker shows up on Skellig Michael, DEAD, as a Force Ghost
    Domnhall Gleeson is Ben Skywalker
    Clone Palpatine
    Clone Vader
    Clone Luke

    And that's just off the top of my head. I think the Pegg rumor is the only thing that is still in speculation

    Robobacca stems from leaked concept art, as does Evil Cyborg Luke, so these were concepts that were tossed around. But in the case of Cyborg Luke, the artists were drawing a concept of Kylo Ren, using those Mark Hamill/Hamlet skull pictures from ROTJ behind the scenes set photos as a placeholder for Renm, hence why the Cyborg's mouth/lips vaugely resemble Luke's. People also thought Vader was in a prominent role in the film, due to Vader being used as a placeholder in Kylo Ren concept art. It's been a LONG 3 years of production lol.

    I wouldn't say these rumors are all dead. These rumors are mostly dead. There's a big difference between all dead and mostly dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. :)

    Somebody call Miracle Max! (But be careful, he laments when having to work for so little... True love, noble cause... but that is not what he said, "to blathe...")

    :D
