As the Star Wars rumors mount up, we’ve decided to start the Star Wars Rumor Drinking Game. Here are the rules: any time you read a rumor about the new Star Wars movies anywhere on the internet you take a drink. (Just to warn you, this post alone contains like three drinks.)
There are some non-Star Wars things happening too. Highlights of your daily offsite links include:
- Kurt Vonnegut and his dog.
- Jenna-Louise Coleman talks to EW.
- Fly in space from London!
- Troubling/offensive post by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn emerges from the past.
- The hipster reading flow chart contains a few sort-of SFF titles.
- Queen Elizabeth meets…Swamp Thing?
- Lev Grossman talks about Klingons, and why he never learned another language.
- Marion Cotillard lied to all of us about The Dark Knight Rises. She doesn’t care.
- Controversy! Is the President’s speech from ID4 terrible?
- Soon, you might be able to fly in space from London to Sydney.
- Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg might not be writing Episode VIII and Episode IX after all, but perhaps spin-offs instead.

- Crazy Star Wars rumors of the past.
- There’s also a possibility that the new Star Wars films will reveal that Obi-Wan did not, in fact, tell Luke enough about his father.
