Who is the son/daughter/cousin/nephew/former-roommate of whom in "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens"? Fans have their theories but, the truth is, we don't know yet. One "spoiler" has been making the rounds that new character Finn (John Boyega) is the son of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams). Maybe he is, maybe he isn't, but fans are calling BS on the source of the spoiler, which appears to be an Amazon listing for a puzzle.

The item is called "Star Wars RARE COLLECTIBLE! New Episode 7 'Finn' (Lando Calrissian's Son) 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle in Collectible Storage Tin." The seller is posted as "Disney Lucas Films Ltd.," to try and give it credibility, and part of the description reads, "Hours of Fun and Entertainment will be had with this Star Wars VII Force Awakens 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle featuring Lando Calrissian's son Finn."

However, the item has a bargain-basement low rating because, as the "Customer Reviews" note, you can buy this anywhere and it says nothing about Lando or Finn. "[A]ll this has done has created a rumor and jacked up the price on a small inexpensive puzzle..." One non-fan mocked, "I received it as a gift and completed this puzzles in 47 minutes and thus did not achieve the hours of fun advertised. I am incredibly disappointed as I expected at least another 73 minutes of fun and I'm not sure what I am supposed to do now to fill the void it has left in my life. Maybe they have a puzzle of Mace Windu's grandson instead as apparently Mace and Lando are the only two black people in the entire Star Wars universe and any new black character must be related somehow. /FACEPALM."

Yes. Plus, as ScreenRant noted, "Disney Lucas Films Ltd." isn't even a real company with that spelling, and the link doesn't take you to the multiple listings you get from the official Star Wars merchandise page. This puzzle was listed by P & E Enterprises, and Amazon product descriptions are written by the seller.

So it sounds like someone may have been trying to troll fans for a buck. That doesn't meant Finn couldn't be Lando's son, but it does seem a bit too pat. Then again, fans think Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) could potentially be the children of Han, Leia, or Luke, so anything is possible.

"The Force Awakens" opens December 18th, 2015.
