The next Star Wars film has had a detail revealed by the strangest source imaginable. Mythbusters' Adam Savage spoke up during SDCC in an interview just published this week by io9, speaking about the show, movies, and specifically a detail about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He let it be known that he's a friend of Phil Tippet, master animator and puppetry legend, and that he was allowed to watch the filming of a sequence Tippet was working on.

Star Wars 9 director rumored coming from Jurassic World

One "special guest" set to be in attendance tonight at Disney's official Star Wars panel has been tipped: Colin Trevorrow.

He's probably in San Diego right this minute.
