Several interesting tweets hit the web yesterday. Check them out after the jump…

There was some kind of a press conference at Bad Robot offices at Santa Monica yesterday. Probably it was about J.J. Abrams’ upcoming TV series Almost Human which he is producing. Still some of the reporters have manged to ask J.J. some Star Wars questions.

The LA Times reporter Yvone Villareal has posted this on twitter:

JJ Abrams on #StarWars: “We’re working our asses off trying to get things in place w/ casting.” Benedict Cumberbatch? “I love that guy.”

This surely gives some hope for the Benedict Cumberbatch rumors.

Remember the rumor about the Millennium Falcon being build at Pinewood Studios? Looks like Latino Review are trying hard to prove their words.

Just after LR leaked online some legit photos from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (already removed by the request of the studio) they revealed that they are trying to get a picture of the Falcon from the set.

Sorry folks but I had to remove the TMNT photos…Working on getting the Falcon one.

If we showed you what the MILLENNIUM FALCON looks like these days, is that something you would be interested in? RT for HELL YES! #StarWars

So stay tune for this one although I doubt that Disney will allow that to happen.


Now some good news for our favorite Wookie. It looks like Peter Mayhew can already stand and walk and even he’ll make an appearance at the Dallas Comic Con on October 4-6.

Tomorrow I will be in a rehab facility much closer to home. I can stand and walk, but I have more conditioning work to do. #WookieeMuscle

      Can I borrow your crystal ball? I could do with the lotto numbers. Thanks.

      haha. and there’s me thinking it’s impossible to deny the words of someone saying “never ever again.”

    Oh wow… I might need to start checking Latino Review. They’ve been wrong in the past as much as they have been right… but if they post those pics I need to see em before they disappear!
