There are new ones every day; some of them are very clearly made up, others seem like they could be legitimate, and a select few get confirmed (or at least corroborated). I’ve sifted through quite a few of these rumors, and here are some of the most interesting things that I’ve heard so far. Warning: character-related and minor plot-related spoilers. The “main villain,” as reported by MovieWeb, is a cyborg Inquisitor who holds ties to the Sith. He’s...
