    Come one they pull these rumors out of thier butt every week. Anyone with an ounce of brain knows thier full of you know what. It's what makes it so funny. No matter how many times they put out fake crap. Peeps coming back for more.

    I mean a least sites like LR get things right every ounce in a while. What's Jedi News track record. Like 0 for 100. [face_laugh]

    I would admit their track record is not great, but none of this would be an exact science and to be fair, he said the source was untested, hence he didn't post it to their site. Also, he's called time on the speculation himself.

    She's turning into the new Solo. I just hope she has a part unlike Ksenia.

    Then why did he even tweet it. Maybe, because he wants some hits. Saying well I didn't post it on my site,but hey I tweet out the rumor. Doesn't excatly excuse him,sorry.

    True but at least the Solo gifs where funny... for a time.

    But we'll just agree to disagree with Solo being in the film, I've now seen all her works and say Rachel Hard-Wood and Ksenia Solo is the better actress by far (and won awards for acting). Hard to say if a first time actress is better or worse though since no one has seen anything she's done. Anyways of the young women we've seen rumored I actually found Ksenia one of the best and most suited for a Star Wars role.

    I agree it is starting to get annoying,but it will eventually pass when the new flavor of the month (aka next rumored cast member) pops up.

    By the way thier was news today. Not about VII,but about a guy in a hockey mask. Does that count as an anouncement? [face_laugh]

    Yeah, not looking forward to that day. We will either get fresh new fake rumors or the day will go by with no news and more peeps bitching about the movie being doomed.

    I actually briefly met Ksenia Solo at London Comic Con last October. I can certainly say she'd suit the role of Han's daughter. IMO, her or Moretz are my top choices, they have the perfect personalities for it.

    I also think that we won't have to put up with these rumors for much longer. I suspect news will drop next month in the 150th Star Wars Insider and later in many of the big cinema magazines that went to see the set, like Total Film.
    Additionally, I think they'll have a panel at San Diego comic con, where they'll drop the initial teaser.

    The first full trailer will be at Celebration Anaheim methinks.

    I'm not trying to get off topic nor defend them, but I too follow the person on Twitter and I just think he randomly picked a date for fun.

    Any truth to the rumor that Ahmed Best is coming back, or is that just a joke?

    Assuming any truth to it, for the character he played to be an older, much wiser version, that might be a good thing.

    On the other hand if that rumor is just a joke, that's okay by me, too.

    New perspective:

    Those waiting impatiently for casting news (like myself) need to think about those in the military waiting to come home, those waiting a diagnosis that may be good or bad news, those waiting to hear about a job after losing theirs, those waiting to hear about a loved one who is missing or ill, etc......kinda does make ya wonder why so many of us seem to be so impatient about who is going to be in a movie.

    Me? Guilty as charged but the above certainly makes you realize how very very small it is.

    Star Wars is something of an escape from our worries or the issues (some of which you alluded to) that we are all dealing with in our daily lives. I recognize how trivial SW is in the grand scheme of things, but it still is important to me, and I don't post here 24/7.

    Jobertus is right....SW is about escaping the issues of our daily lives....and it sounds like waiting for SW is part of the same healing for some....

    Even Latino Review does not even tease an untested source. Jedi News is attention-whorring. Nothing more.

    I think Ksenia would be great as Han and Leia's daughter as well. Went on youtube and watched some interviews with her. Not only is she cute but has a great sense of humour.

    Ahmed Best coming back? Must be a joke. Bringing back the character Jar Jar when it is not necessary would be the biggest own goal in the history of film making
