Star Wars Rumor Generator

Will it be called Star Wars: Revenge of the Tauntauns or just Episode VII? Who is John Boyega playing and when does he get to have dinner with Luke? So many questions! So few answers. But that doesn't mean we should be making up answers and filling the void, instead we should be waiting patiently to see the new Star Wars in all its glory sometime in 2015. In a genius move, Slate has launched what they're calling the "Star Wars Rumor Generator", a fun little interactive script that creates random Star Wars posters with rumors like the title, who each person is playing, and so on. Yes we're often caught up in the Star Wars news game, but we try to focus on what is actually worth knowing, not every last rumor someone comes up with.

From the description of the Rumor Generator at Slate: "So why not join in on the fun? Now you, too, can spread speculation, using the generator above. You may look at the source and think 'I have a bad feeling about this'—but that shouldn't stop you from spreading some gossip! May the force—of hearsay—be with you." Hilarious. And totally spot on. The generator also includes a description, saying things like it "will focus on a Padawan learner [name changes every time] who must learn the ways of the Force at the hands of an aging Luke Skywalker." It's just an amusing way to take the absurd Star Wars rumor-mongering and make fun of it in a safe and entertaining way. When will the rumors ever stop?! They never will, it's our fate… Don't believe anything you read online - then again you already knew that, right? For more rumors.

Back in the early 1970s a colleague in the Computer Science department wrote a random Star Trek plot generator in SNOBOL (StriNg Oriented and symBOlic Language, a computer programming languages developed between 1962 and 1967 at AT&T Bell Laboratories by David J. Farber, Ralph E. Griswold and Ivan P. Polonsky). This sounds like a variation of that theme.
