Rumor Roundup: Star Wars Land? Stab, Guv'nor? Apple Stuff? More?


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Star Wars Land
  • Will Disneyland Replace Toontown With a Star Wars Land?
    It's gonna take a lot of Dip, but soon, where Toontown once stood will be a string of Tibanna gas stations, expensive motels, restaurants that serve rapidly prepared food... my God, it'll be beautiful. []

  • Will Apple Release the iPhone 6S in the Spring?
    They can't do that! Everyone knows that iPhones aren't ripe until the fall. (And that you should never eat an iPad in any month with an "R" in it.) "Sell no i, before it's time." [Cult of Mac]

Chimney Sweep Assassins
  • Is the Next Assassin's Creed Game Set in Victorian London?
    Play as Burt, a loveable chimney sweep who gets swept up into the cause, when his friend, Mary, is murdered by a miserly banker. "Stab in time, stab in time, Come on, mateys, stab in time! Stab in time, stab in time! Never need a reason, Never need a rhyme, stab in time, you stab in time!" []

  • Is Barnes & Noble Ending Their Nook Partnership With Microsoft?
    Aw, man, can't Microsoft catch a break? I feel bad for those guys! (And it was working out so well, because, of course, you all immediately remembered that they were partnered up since 2012, right?) []

iPad Pro
  • Will the "iPad Pro" Have a 12.2" Screen?
    Keep in mind that Apple sells an 11" MacBook Air, so its biggest tablet will be bigger than their smallest laptop. I'm not sure what point I'm trying to make, here. I just noticed that one was bigger than the other, is all. [PC Magazine]

  • Will Apple Release Another 4" iPhone Next Year?
    With the larger, hand-busting sizes being de rigueur, will this return to a smaller form factor be dubbed "iPhone mini" or "Classic iPhone"? [Mac Rumors]

RE: Star Wars Land...Disney fan sites have wanted something like that for years (just saying). I think they were greatly energized when Disney announced the new Avatar-themed area in Animal Kingdom park a few years ago. After Lucas sold to Disney it has been assumed that they are looking to make a Star Wars area in Hollywood Studios park (which would be a nice addition but not sure where would be a good fit logistically in the park). Disneyland CA has limited space. It seems better in Tomorrowland (and some have speculated that may still happen) but there is too much history and tradition with that area so I can see them reusing ToonTown.
