From the article linked to in the first post in this thread:
"Todd Fisher had stated in an interview last April that his sister would be featured in 'Star Wars: Episode IX
' using unreleased footage, but Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy denied the claim
and said he was 'confused.'”
And Khan was not the villain in "Star Trek: Into Darkness," right?
Why lie? I mean, I get not wanting to spoil anything, to keep things a secret. Still, outright lying is pathetic, and gives us no reason to believe one single thing the studio, producers, or filmmakers have to say about when acknowledging or denying a rumor.
Frankly, for having called Todd Fisher "confused," I believe Kathleen Kennedy owes him some sort of apology. Apparently, she was either confused herself, or somehow unaware of what her director had in store, or she was... well, a liar.
If she was unaware, she should have held off on commenting until she talked about it with the studio and her director. If she was confused, well... Okay, but really? If she was lying, she should be ashamed, especially when defending the lie by questioning whether someone else was "confused."
