From the look of his action figure, Zuvio is a rubber mask alien -- and also fairly short. Max is 6' 4"... and if they hired a distinguished actor for just a cameo, you can bet they want us to recognize him.

The theory about Luke is getting alot of traction on the internet, as even the Wall Street Journal speculated:

Spoiler:
He turned to the Dark Side and is Kylo Ren in the trailers.


I think its utter bullshit, but if its true this maybe the plot point that ruins the movie and maybe even the trilogy.

Yeah there's no way that's true. Not really sure why so many people seem so convinced otherwise. The only basis for it is because we haven't gotten a good look at him in the trailers or the one sheet but I'm positive its because they're keeping him as the film's big reveal.

I made that joke here a few pages back and sure enough a coworker suggested just that after seeing the latest trailer. I didn't think he could be serious but...

Kylo Ren appears in the trailer from the back without helmet yet its clear to see is Adam Drivers head. There was also the promo shot of him walking in the snow with two troopers in the Ren costume without the helmet. There will certainly be a big twist in this new trilogy, and sure it will be with Ren....but interesting to see how Lukes role pans out.

There is a small snippet in the trailer (1:24) that seems to show the Knights of Ren. It is quiet possible that Luke is the leader of this group and that Kylo Ren is a Darth Vader obsessive that has split from them.

Luke is Kylo Ren = bullshit

Luke dealing with the fact he started down the path to the Dark Side at the end of Empire = perfectly plausible.

I agree with the first point.

On the second, doesn't the story take place like 30 years later? Shouldn't we be seeing the result of whatever path he went down?

Does the 6" Rey figure have a lightsaber or just a staff or both?

If there were any truth to that rumor, you'd think they would have hired someone a little shorter to play Kylo Ren, since Adam Diver is 6'3" and Mark Hamill is 5'9" (on a good day...I've met Mark and we were pretty much the same height, and I'm 5'7").

Adam Driver is skinny. Mark Hamill is fat. Luke is not Kylo Ren.

Maybe Luke wears a girdle like Ash Williams?

JJ will have have Adam Driver rip off his mask, a la Mission Impossible, to reveal Mark Hamill. He directed MI:3 just to learn this technique in preparation.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ren basically tells Luke "I'm what you'd be if you truly embrace your power!" He'll probably do the evil "Dark Side is tempting me" routine before ultimately choosing to be a good guy. Because he's, you know, Luke Skywalker.

It's kind of sad that this is what society has come to, but it's not like they have cinemas much of a choice.

I get no blasters, but no lightsabers is a joke.

If you looked carefully at the poster you would see the website for Cinemark.
