    Most people seem aware of the fact that George Lucas isn't really involved.

    There is a poster that I think has leaked concept art as his/her avatar, which I believe goes against the rules. I'll report an example to the mods, but since this person has posted in here a few times, you may want to be careful.

    Okay, for all of you unwary travelers heading to the interwebz for Battlefront information, be forewarned that there is a planet spoiler in the preorder information. It looks like the core game can be played early without spoiling anything, but the DLC definitely ties to TFA.

    It seems that JJ Abrams revealed the first line of the film on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Lucky for me a spoiler warning was posted where I saw it being discussed so I've only seen perhaps the first word of the first line.

    Apparently the first two minutes have leaked to the internet. Time to shut off the internet - see you all on 12/18!

    It's a hoax. Unless something new came out today.

    Oh really? The one from tfn's homepage? I just saw mention of it on Twitter and didn't even want to risk it.

    Yup, that one. I really don't know what the TFN front page is thinking sometimes. ;)

    That's all he said was the first WORD from the first line.

    On Facebook's 'trending' thing this evening, I saw some blurb about Episode VIII's title. I didn't click on it, I clicked the 'x' telling Facebook I don't want to see things like this anymore, and that was that.

    On another, somewhat related topic, how come the "Spoiler Alert" thread is locked? EHT is there any particular reason, because I would've just posted this there instead.

    Yeah, I saw the title thing too - on theforce.net.
    Good idea to stay off the main page from now on.

    Yeah, avoid the main news page of TFN... though to be frank, they haven't had anything very accurate there in a while anyway.

    I'll unlock that thread and merge these posts into it, that makes sense.

    Thanks EHT! I'd think it odd we would find out the title of the movie a year and a half out, but stranger things have happened. I think Lucasfilm released the first teaser for TFA in what, November 2014?

    Yup, it was in November 2014. I think TFA had a longer promotional period than the others will have though.

    But the Rogue One title was released about a year and a half before the movie though, wasn't it?

    The Rogue One title was announced in March 2015, and then the addition of the "A Star Wars Story" part of the title was announced in August 2015.

    I once again made the mistake of looking at the TF.N main page. There's a potentially huge spoiler in one of the headlines today! [face_sigh]

    I just bookmark this forum and avoid all of the other ones. I haven't seen the TF.N main page in years!

    Yeah, I go to the main page as a habit. It's been my go-to place to check for Star Wars news for like seventeen years, so :p
