If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.

And by probably I mean definitely.

Since dedicating myself to getting into “superhero shape,” several articles regarding my weight have been brought to my attention. Claims have been made that I’ve been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I’ve never met, eating sprouted grains I can’t pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 5’3” frame. Losing 14 pounds out of necessity in order to live a healthier life is a huge victory. I’m a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, I’d have to part with both arms. And a foot. I’m frustrated with the irresponsibility of tabloid media who sell the public ideas about what we should look like and how we should get there.

Okay, I hate to keep bringing everything back to Avatar, but you know who would get along well with Yoda?  Uncle Iroh.


Yes. Yes, he would.


I don’t even read ATLA fanfic and I DEMAND CROSSOVER.

Are any of the new movie rumors true?

All rumors are rumors, which means we don’t know. Some are more plausible than others, though that doesn’t make them true. Some are probably total bullshit. We can’t really know yet.

The most trustworthy rumors tend to come from the trades (Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, The Wrap and Deadline Hollywood.) Then there are the smaller sites like Latino Review, which have mixed records but have been known to get things right. (Not everything, but some things.) If a site has no track record (and with sites reporting only SW/Episode VII stuff, that’s most of them) we just have to wait and see.

This is why I emphasize not taking any rumors particularly seriously. Even if there’s a grain of truth, some things are coming second or third-hand and there’s a lot of guesswork involved, like a game of telephone. For instance, before The Phantom Menace was out, we ‘knew’ Brian Blessed was playing a leader of some sort: Guesses had him playing the father of Natalie Portman’s character. And from that assumption, folks were also assuming he died somewhere in the film, making Portman Queen. He turned out to be Boss Nass.

The closer we get to the film, the more we’ll see leaks related to merchandise being out in the wild (which is happening with Rebels right now) and the more we’ll know. Though I doubt the guessing will stop.

In any case: Be mindful of rumors. Seek out their original sources. And remember, if it’s not on StarWars.com, it’s a rumor, full stop.
