Some “Force Awakens” Spoilers Are True

Every other week for much of the past year or so there seems to have been wild and spoiler-filled rumors about the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Quite a few of those have been bull, some shot down with the first actual merchandising photos and trailer release.

The film’s director J.J. Abrams however confirms that SOME of the spoilers that have gone online are true, but understandably wouldn’t acknowledge which ones. He tells The BBC:

“There are a ton of rumors – some true, some false. But I’m grateful for everyone who would want to read a spoiler because it means that they care and want to see the movie. I know what it feels like, as an enormous Star Wars fan myself.”

Post-production on the film continues for now as two more major rumors about the movie hit the Net this week. The first involves a second-act twist which I will not report on here. The second is a description of the film’s opening and that can be read at MakingStarWars.
