Not a spoiler, but a rumor nonetheless...
Tickets for The Force Awakens to go on sale October 11.

For 93 days until Star Wars, I'm opening up my nerd vault just a little further to reveal The Road to Endor, the still-standing website I co-created back in 2002 that was a take-off of March Madness.

The best take-away of the whole thing? Finding out that there was a Jek Porkins cult following online.

Depending on your personality and nerd level, you'll either spend 3 seconds at this link thinking WTF? or 35 minutes reading the entire thing.

Lando seeded below Boba? That's some disrespect, bro.

Also, Obi-Wan at 6? He's a 2 at worst.

There are two Obi-wan's in different brackets. The number 6 is TPM one. The one in Tatooinee bracket is seeded 2 ( after luke)

Noticed that right after I posted.

Even TPM Obi-Wan should be no worse than a #3 for the Maul fight alone.

Well, if anyone wasn't aware Rogue One has begun filming. TMZ already has a set picture. I wouldn't really call this a spoiler, but I' am going to go ahead and just post the link.

It's been awfully quiet on the TFA front for most of this month, at least since Force Friday.

I choose to believe Lucasfilm has gone for radio silence since they are busy putting the finishing touches on the final trailer.

I feel a bit like a junkie who hasn't had a fix in a while.

Meantime, here are some set photos from Rogue One. Nothing terribly exciting though.

That site has more set photos than the TMZ site I posted....

Lol, thanks. While I'm excited about R1, I want something new about TFA. News, a trailer, something.

This has been rumored for a while. Nothing concrete yet, but I hope this happens.

You guys realize you're complaining about something that happened 12 years ago, right?

But I can't fault the brilliance of their marketing. We don't even have a full trailer yet, but kids & fans already know who Kylo Ren is... the slow trickle of info, images, toys, etc. have started branding our brains with these new characters, new look for storm troopers, etc. They've shown us very little, yet we are becoming very familiar with some of this new universe. Probably drop one full trailer in October sometime... start hitting us with shorter TV spots (99% of footage we've already seen) in November, and Disney makes hundreds of millions come December.

I think they are trying too figure out how they are going to count all the money they are about to make

Why count when they could do something like this perhaps?

Mark Hamill is awesome.

He is 63, so I get what you are saying. But he looks more like Emperor Palpatine than I ever thought he would.

Hell, Harrison Ford is 73:

You picked the absolute worst pic of that bunch. He's also probably a bit drunk and it's obviously late. Cut the guy some slack.

Just to show how badass Luke has become, they'll have a scene where he shaves off his beard with his light saber.

That is unfair. Ford is really really good looking and held up better than any other 73 year old i know.

On top of this, Hamil put on a lot of weight and then lost it. Skin elasticity at 63 just isn't there.

The Force ages people, man. Palps, obviously. Mace went bald at 27. Even Yoda started getting wrinkles when he was about 300 years old. The Jedi came up with the "live fast, die young, leave a beautiful corpse" motto because they knew they got to be some ugly mofos when they got old.

Make-Up is also a helluva thing! Take anybody away from professional make-up artists and then start taking cell phone shots after drinking in a pub... yeah, you aren't gonna look very good!!!

That pic of Harrison Ford isn't fair because he is made up and, well, he's Harrison Ford. Dude has always looked good (no homo).

Harrison Ford is handsome as ****, so I agree, he's not the best person to use to compare. He does not look like an average 73 year old.
