You may remember something like this happening with the Avengers: Endgame, though, it was less about leaks than it was trying to get the early viewers to not spill the beans. This one though, so far out from Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker‘s debut on December 19th, seems a little off.
Star Wars Philippines yesterday shared a social media post, which contains a video of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac warning fans to stay off the internet for fear of spoilers, as the movie releases later there than everywhere else, by a whole 24-48 hours. The video also shows a small amount of new footage we hadn’t seen in previous trailers, though it is miniscule, check it out.

Since the latest trailer hit, it has become apparent that the vast majority of the rumoured leaks for this movie are legit. These began getting seriously detailed around a month ago, to the point where the majority of the plot (not all of it), sans any dialogue have been leaked by three independent sources across a variety of web based sources. I do wonder if this has had an impact on Star Wars making a video warning people to stay away from spoilers? Maybe they just really are concerned about Philippine’s fans being spoiled in the couple of days it will take for them to get the chance to see it?
It is quite a… shall we say, cheesy little video? The way Isaac comes in acting like he’s just happened to walk by and found Daisy Ridley and Boyega casually chatting to a camera was horrible. It all seems a little redundant as well considering the level of leaks that are appearing for this Star Wars movie. The difference I think on this movie compared to say The Last Jedi, or The Force Awakens is the fact that so many sources are coming across with similar content. I stayed well away from any spoilers for TFA or TLJ, but did check back on the accuracy of them after I had seen the movies, I actually did the same with Game of Thrones and actually the majority of the leaks for Thrones were utter BS, at least until very close to the air date. The leaks for TFA and TLJ though, those were genuine, they just hadn’t been accepted by any of the fan base until after the fact.
