The Source of Leaked THE FORCE AWAKENS Image is in Trouble

Lucasfilm is trying to become the deadliest bounty hunter in the galaxy. Okay, that may be a bit extreme but they are in search of someone. Lucasfilm is seeking out the person who leaked an image from The Force Awakens. 

According to Courthouse News Service, Lucasfilm filed a subpoena request against Imageshack,under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The company is seeking information about the user “Darth_Simi” who allegedly posted an unauthorized image back on Oct. 29 of last year.

The image they are referring to is the one of the villain which showed the masked figure holding a crossguard-lightsaber. It was a blurry image (which was also watermarked) but looked very similar to the villain shown in the trailer released last November.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released Dec. 18.
