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:

Han Chewie
  • Are Live-Action "Star Wars" Shows Coming to a TV Near You?
    "Chewie, we're home... Box Office. We're on HBO! Oh, it's Netflix? Hmmm. How about 'Jumping networks ain't like dustin' crops, boy!'?" —Harrison Ford, who thinks all streaming services are the same, recording a commercial for Netflix. [Decider]

Nintendo Question Block
  • Is Nintendo Considering Getting Into the Monthly Subscription Box Business?
    To fit in with the Nintendo business model, the service will send you the same content, just in slightly different packaging, each month. "Oh, look! Another Zelda toy! This one is slightly higher quality than the last one, so I'm glad I got it!" [Gameranx]
