    I don't know if this is really spoilers or not (as we're now talking speculation on plot points from previous films), but anyway:

    Not sure why we're putting this in spoilers, but . . .

    Because the original "spoiler" comment said that there's a rumor that it's going to be revealed that Rey is the real "Chosen One", not Anakin. Which I'm not sure is really a spoiler, as I think many of us wondered as such, after watching "The Force Awakens".

    I mean, for her to pull off the stuff she was doing, with having just been introduced to the Force...her being the "Chosen One" just makes sense.

    ...But I wonder if they got a plot twist up their sleeves...

    I think that would be a lazy and potentially disappointing explanation.

    Rey being the Chosen One kinda spits on something Lucas has insisted on with the story. The guy has been getting a kick in for years, don't need all his ideas getting retconned by Disney.

    I'm not a fan of that twist. I prefer the idea that Rey is just a random Jedi has to learn how to adapt in the galaxy's tension. Really though, let's remember the vast majority of rumours from TFA turned out wrong, so let's not worry.

    I don't know why, but this has me excited. Especially that picture that Ridley posted. I mean, yeah, "They wrapped up filming", and that's just one step in making a movie, but you know what that means: Trailer probably coming soon!!

    EDIT: Well, trailer probably coming by November or December. But that's "soon", sorta!

    There'll probably be a bts teaser for SDCC. Other than that, we'll get some stuff later.

    Well, sure, I can see that. But I wonder if there's a "time jump/montage" sequence, going through Rey getting trained, and then the real plot of the story starts up months (or a year or two) later.

    How long will Finn lie in a coma? Was he even in a coma at the end of the last movie?

    In VIII, Kelly Marie Tran is reportedly playing Aya, an information broker
    If only there was some anonymous digital landscape where people could trade information without having to going out in public and risk capture by bad guys in matching outfits.

    8/16: On August 15, Rian Johnson started editing on VIII.

    9/13: Driver comments Ep.8 is different tone like how Empire Strikes Back was for that trilogy. Hey man, as long as it's not the same kind of ending...
