    The official Star Wars page just posted the original teaser to TESB today confirming what some people had expected that this was the start of a viral marketing campaign.

    Last Wednesday they posted the first teaser to ANH. If they follow this order then next Wednesday will be ROTJ and on Wed the 30th October some kind of teaser/announcement for Episode VII.

    Oct the 30th is also the date when the Disney deal and Episode VII were announced last year, hence it will be the one year anniversary.

    This is being discussed in the Casting Rumors thread.

    But the mods have said threads for individual rumors are now allowed and since that's a casting thread I think this deserves it's own place of discussion. Just my opinion though. Anyway, I'm excited about this and am looking forward to next week to see if ROTJ teaser comes!

    Why would you want to confine discussion on this to a thread about casting rumors?

    Shouldn't this thread say Rumor on it though. Since nothing is officially confirmed.

    I'll go ahead and change it to speculation since that seems most apt.

    Edit: Beat me to the punch!

    We can re-designate if it turns out to be true.

    I'm wondering what this possible teaser will consist of. At the very least I'd think a title and release date and at the most incredible-world-exploding-awesomeness maybe quick shots of Luke, Han and Leia in costume. I might faint if that happens. :D

    Yeah, just seeing them for a second and a half, each in their respective recognizable outfit, that would be... hmm... awesome.

    Here's what could happen:

    John Williams' Binary Sunset/Force theme plays originally as the screen is black. The black fades as you see a hooded figure facing down. A green lightsaber is ignited. The figure looks up/towards the camera. IT IS A BEARDED LUKE SKYWALKER! The end of the theme plays as Hamill fades. You see Star Wars: Episode VII. Then underneath, a title fades in. After the title fades out, a release date is shown.

    That would make everyone go crazy.

    I believe this to be a logical conclusion, seeing as this was posted the day before the Episode VII announcement last year:


    I expect an Age of Ultron-esque trailer, probably something similar to this, but perhaps a bit more revealing.

    Why does everyone think Luke should be bearded? Cause Obi-Wan was?

    I don't know. To me, it just makes sense.

    Because Mark Hamill looks like an utter badass with a beard. ;)

    Ok - maybe so.

    But it would radically alter the look of Luke Skywalker IMO.

    I understand this is a much older Luke now - but putting a beard on him is not right IMO.

    I would really like to just see some or all of the Big Three in the recognizable SW context, even for a second.

    That would be a sort of sobering slap in the face.
    "Holy ****, they really are filming this!"

    EDIT - Yeah, Luke with a beard is badass. Go, beards!

    If Luke's beard is CGI in the teaser I will boycott Disney forever.

    If they have blue milk in the teaser trailer, I will never watch ANY Star Wars of ANY KIND, ever again...

    Put me down for one bearded Luke as well. It just feels right and would allow for the aging process to seem more graceful. It also falls well within Star Wars tradition at this point. And yeah, I do think it would make him look more badass. I've been hoping they would go that route since the initial announcement. Anyway, here's hoping this pans out... I know I'm not the only one dying for something... anything solid, but we've been burnt so many times by these kinds of assumptions that I'm terrified to get my hopes up.

    By the way, where on the official site are these teasers?

    Edit: Oh wait, I just found a tweet with a youtube link. Is that the only place it's found?

    Right. I already follow Star Wars, but I don't check Twitter very often.

    Yes, I want a bearded old Luke, as well. And, possibly, a bearded old Han.

    And, of course, a bearded old Lando, a bearded old Chewie, a bearded old C-3PO, a bearded old Yoda Force ghost, a bearded old Anakin Force ghost, and a bearded old Leia.
