    I believe so. No one had a clue that Palpatine would be in the movie prior to SWCC and we first heard about Dark Rey from descriptions of the D23 footage before it was released to the public.

    I guess I'm overthinking things a little.
    MSW is a known entity. They schedule their stuff to spread it out and keep interest in the site ticking over. In between, they are prone to discussing any old rumour - no matter how unfounded or far out it may be.
    I need to keep remembering that.

    I still maintain MSW most likely have a bunch of concept art (or descriptions thereof) as the main source of their leaks once again and are just trying to figure out what is relevant and piece together a narrative from that.

    I suppose they could still get played (on a big scale), just doesn't seem that likely to me...

    Maybe I have a different viewpoint to most of you - I'm kind of into the whole process, the pre-production, the way everything comes together... to me a leak about a piece of concept art which doesn't even feature in the finished film is as relevant and interesting as anything that does make it onscreen. It's still something real that leaked out during this period when the film was coming together.

    If you get what I mean...

    Like, it's fun to look back and say "yeah, there was this scene filmed for TLJ... and someone really saw it being filmed... and then someone else shared that info with us, and for a while we were all discussing whether the Knights of Ren were on Luke's island fighting Rey in this film..."
    To me that's still "real", because it was a genuine leak, and it got everyone thinking... it just turns out it was totally misinterpreted from the outset.
    And, like I said, it's fun to eventually look back on all these online discussions about an aspect of the movie that was within reach, but somehow totally misunderstood in the end.

    That's one thing.
    And at the other end of the spectrum, there is just some kid making s**t up for attention on Reddit. That's not real.

    But all that other stuff I'm talking about - I don't get bitter about being misled and dismiss it altogether... because there was an element of truth in there at some stage.
    For me this period is all part of the fun. The film is out there somewhere, slowly coming together. And we're all here trying to piece together the film at the same time. It's all part of the genesis of the film to me.

    I just can't figure out yet whether JP is the a**hole spinning a yarn on Reddit, or part of that rich tapestry that is the Star Wars spoiler season...

    This is how I imagine Disney/LFL are reacting with all of these leakes.

    I only read a bit of the new leak or whatever this is, I'm just here for the drama really and boy is it entertaining.

    That’s way too complex for a two hour movie.
    The first two seasons of Game of Thrones had about as much exposition and new characters and plot threads as that. No. Just no.

    It's really weird, JP leaks (with MSW backing him up) not only got a full act by act leak, but also got every single reshot and the reasons why they were reshot.

    For TFA a shooting script leaked at it wasn't even this details. Plus it still had errors. How has something this extensive been leaked?

    MSW backing up JP just confuses the hell out of me, it's just all too credible to be completely wrong.

    It will be interesting to see if anything we see in the trailer will back up anything in the leaks

    JW has someone on the inside and the length of time between teaser in April and trailer in October helps him spread enough truth around to be credible.
    I’m wondering if the D23 footage has thrown him off his game enough so that he’s hedging now that the window is smaller and some of what he knew would be part of film was in D23 footage.

    I think LFL is feeding him a lot of stuff and the trailers and press help him decide what to focus on. Reshoots are a great excuse too.

    everything I’m saying goes for all the “leakers” and “sources.” The trailer will have some juicy misdirects, just like the leaks they’ve allowed or at least are aware of.

    I’m pretty sure LFL knows who MSW’s sources are. That site is a marketing tool of theirs.

    Thanks for the acknowledgment. When I posted my comment, I had given into the temptation of checking out what was available to learn about episode IX. I wish I hadn’t, but I’m no Jedi...lol

    I agree killing Chewie after Peter Mayhew’s death is too soon. In fact, that could be a reason Disney ordered reshoots for TROS that are down to the wire for Post-Production.

    And here I thought C-3PO’s red eyes was just another gimmick like his red arm in TFA to make us buy his toy for the umpteenth time. I hope instead you are right and it has something to do with the Sith.

    I love elaborate stories, but I believe Disney, KK, and Abrams will stick to the Thoreauian principle of “Simplify, Simplify, Simplify.” (Walden). They will choose the most simplistic answers so that anyone in the audience can understand, and pay homage to us die hards with easter eggs.

    Chewie dying in that part of the JP write up is to highlight that angry rey powers have consequences. The problem being, it's a complete fake out and chewie is alive and well. So they are going to have this big dramatic moment only to be undercut later.

    Chewie is 100% alive.

    again, this moment is completely undercut because it's also suggested that R2D2 has a backup file for 3PO, but is just old. So not even 3PO's sacrifice means anything. :rolleyes:

    So the Sith Rey with the switchblade staff lightsaber is more than a vision? Hmm..
