The (clone) army of "Star Wars" fans threw themselves into a frenzy this weekend when Amazon (via P&E Enterprise) blatantly spoiled the origin story for John Boyega's Finn in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." In the picture below, you can cleary see the Internet retailer list Finn as the son of Lando Calrissian. While the return of Lando is expected at some point during this new trilogy of "Star Wars" films, we have some doubts when it comes to the validity of this claim.
For starters, Amazon refers to Lucasfilm (also known as Lucasfilm Ltd.) as "Lucas Films Ltd." This is a company that sold for $4 billion a few years back, not some rinky dink operation out of your parents' garage. You think a company of Lucasfilm's caliber would ever be mispelled or misrepresented by accident? No chance.
The ad also refers to the film as "Star Wars VII Force Awakens." In no way, shape or form has Disney and Lucasfilm used that language as an official title. Although fans may hold a special place in their hearts for the customary "Episode" followed by roman numerals, Disney has made it a point to not include it in any form. J.J. Abrams' film has ALWAYS been referred to as "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
Finally, why in the world would a puzzle have the inside scoop that not even in the higher ups in the business have? How could P & E Enterprise get their hands on such sensitive information when the entire world has been coming up empty handed in their search for similar spoilers?
None of that is to say that it won't be revealed that Finn has ties to an original trilogy character or that Lando won't be included in some form. But this puzzle is not a legitimate clue that should be taken serious by "Star Wars" fans.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will hit theaters on Dec. 18.
