With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker now out in theaters, what better way to celebrate than with rumor, innuendo, and corporate politics.

That's right, it wouldn't be Star Wars without controversy, and now JJ Abrams and his production house Bad Robot are up to bat with #ReleaseTheJJCut trending on Twitter.

But are anonymous users on Reddit to be trusted?

And if the answer to that is "no" is there still something worth parsing?

We can learn from even the most questionable of sources...in Virtual Legality.
