Rumors continue to grow about the new skins that the new season of Fortnite would have. There might be comments from certain people inside Epic Games that might prove these are not just rumors.

Mustard posted the same image on his official Instagram account with the caption, “That’s no Moon!?….” For many, it refers to the death star, which was seen in the early Star Wars sagas, implying that this Darth Vader skin may be coming soon.
In the case of Family Guy, no one has made official comments yet. However, the folder’s name in that image gives the show’s fans a good feeling. Moreover, this is not the first time Fortnite would include a skin from animated productions. Previously, Epic Games created some Skins from the popular anime Naruto.
