POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT: This article contains what MAY be considered a SPOILER, so proceed with caution!
The actors from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ are making the rounds to promote the film, but of course they are under strict orders to not reveal too much about the film. Not only is this the most anticipated movie in years, but director J.J. Abrams is notorious for keeping details about his movies under wraps until they premiere. (This of course backfired hard when it came to ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ but let’s not dwell on that…) While the newbies may follow this gag order, the resident Honey Badger of the franchise, Harrison Ford just don’t give a f—. Not too long ago, during a Reddit Q&A, weary of fan nitpicking, he responded “I don’t know and I don’t care” when asked if Han or Greedo shot first.
He may at times come across as a grumpy old man, but that doesn’t mean he’s not hip to modern social media. Well… kinda. Ford appears to have tweeted a message expressing enthusiasm for a scene in the upcoming Episode Seven, but not through his own account but rather the Star Wars Twitter account. And what may have seemed like a simple positive statement is now stirring up some hubbub with detail-obsessed fans.
Here is the message:

It’s never that easy with ‘Star Wars’.
In the trailer, we’ve seen Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) fighting Finn (John Boyega), not Rey (Daisy Ridley). But that’s all we’ve seen, trailers. (Well, and teasers for trailers, because now that’s a thing. Thanks, ‘Star Wars’!) And unlike some trailers, the ones for ‘The Force Awakens’ have done a good job of teasing the movie without giving too much away. It’s entirely possible that there’s a whole showdown between Rey and Kylo Ren that fans haven’t been tipped off to before.
The big reveal here is the suggestion that Rey wields a lightsabre, hinting an affinity for the Force. It’s been a general assumption that between her, Finn and Kylo Ren at least one of them is the offspring of someone from the original trilogy. So the idea that Rey is Force sensitive implies she is the daughter of maybe Han and Leia or Luke and an unknown mother.
But on the other hand, he misspelled “Kylo” so that throws everything into doubt. Some speculate he may have gotten Rey and Finn’s names mixed up. Or maybe he’s just messing with fans. Doubtful, but I suppose it’s possible.
Is this a simple enthusiastic remark? Or does it open doors to all kinds of possibilities? Or do we all just need to calm down and wait for the film to open?
