It details the stories of the men who originally took and leaked some of the most recognizable and revealing photos from the sets of the film. It also talks about the crazy security measures J.J. Abrams and his team had people go through, including putting a sticker over the camera on phones brought on set. Just a great read filled with fun information.

    Have you ever dreamed of working at Lucasfilm? If you're reading this article, you probably have. Well the behind the scenes team is hiring for a few positions, one is a person to work in physical effects, the other is computer effects. Visit this site for news.

    Disney Theme Parks are selling this very limited edition Vinylmation of Boba Fett, as seen in the Star Wars Christmas Special. It's just too cool. Here he is, front and back.

    The official Star Wars website released this trailer for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in 2015. And can I just say, as good as this trailer is, it doesn't come close to capturing the excitement and vibe of the event. It's just joyous.

    Speaking of Celebration, there's going to be a big art show as part of the event and the Star Wars website has a bunch of info on it. Head there to read more and the full artists list.

    So far on Star Wars Rebels, one of the biggest mysteries is the identity of Fulcrum, a character that seems to be feeding the Ghost team lots of insider information. We don't know who the character is, or even what sex they are, but a very interesting rumor has begun to circulate about who he or she could be. I won't post it here in case it is true, but visit this link to read more.

    Speaking of Rebels, after Monday November 24th episode, it'll go on a brief holiday hiatus, and return on January 5.

    Onto the potential spoilers.

    They come, of course, from Making Star Wars. The site has several interesting description of characters they refer to as "Pirates." These characters have a "Mad Max" look to them and live in a setting they refer to as "Pirate's Cove." This is, according to their analyzation, a major Rebel base in the film and possibly the scenes filmed at Greenham Common. Head to those links to read a bunch more about each of these possible spoilers.

    The most interesting bit is that one of the rooms in "Pirate's Cove" is described in this rumored concept art/blueprints as Rose's room and it's fitting for puppetry. Rumor has it Rose is the code name of Lupita Nyong'o's character so it's possible, she's some kind of puppet. Read more at all those links.

    Next, Star Wars Underground has learned of what they believe, and we believe as well, is a line of dialogue from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If it's real, it doesn't really spoil anything in particular, but it's kind of fun. The rumored line is (highlight to see) "Chewie, we're back home!"

    Finally, on to the spoiler of all spoilers, Latino Review's latest Star Wars column breaks down the rumors about the ending of the film which includes several of your favorite characters. We're talking major, major stuff. Last shot of the film stuff, potentially, so don't click unless you are that deep. But if you are lots of very interesting stuff.
