Cinescape should never be thought of as a viable source for information. All they do, in their magazine and on their website, is reiterate information (read: rumors), much of it false, from other sources. They obviously make no effort to check on the veracity of this "information." Did anyone see their big "Star Wars Special Issue" last year, an unauthorized "collector's edition" magazine made to look like it was an official tie-in with the special editions? The whole thing was full of unsubstantiated rumors about the prequels taken from other sources (often uncredited, thus plagerized)and billed as "news." True, once in a while Cinescape will turn up a tantalizing tidbit, but they usually don't pan out and should never be taken as gospel. It's a glossy, well put together, good looking magazine, but the shoddiest journalism imaginable.
