    Looking at the past Expo's, it really seems as if Lucasfilm would be the showstopper at the end of the presentation. I would expect them to come out with KK and discuss similar things from Celebration then go into a fake end of the segment and go into the exciting announcement of the Big 3, release date, and maybe the name.

    Yeah, they wouldn't just be like we're working on Episode VII. The end. They'd want to end it with a bang.

    If they don't announce anything here, or soon, I would have rather them not announced anything about Episode VII+ being made at all...

    I don't think we'll have to worry about them remaining silent this time. This is Disney's big show, they will want to pull out all stops to make a big splash. And you can't get much bigger than Star Wars.

    I will be there....so I am looking forward to any info.

    They way I see it...instead of thinking about how tiny the odds are that anything big will be revealed. I try to think about what are the odds that Disney is going to pass on the opportunity to utilize D23 to make a splash regarding their newest, very precious, and exciting acquisition. Meaning, they opted to pass on SDCC and CEII to give any official goodies. Now, they are going to pass on D23 for what better venue/format? A press release, online interview, next years SDCC, leaks from casting/pre-production?

    I am still hopeful they want to make a splash. The larger the better. :D

    This is their big event. If they don't announce anything, they're shooting themselves in the foot.

    Yeah, and because it's the internet, then the speculation will begin about how Disney/LFL isn't certain about the ST and Arndt's writing and Abrams' direction, blah blah blah. [face_sick]:p

    WHAT?!?11/1/1/1/1? WHO WILL THE NEW DIRECTOR BE??!?/1/1/ ZOMG.

    Rumor: Lucas using shotgun clause in agreement whereby if Disney didn't have a director for the project by August 1, 2013, he would have option to become the director. :p

    Something will happen.

    Lucasfilm is officially confirmed as a presenter at the Walt Disney Studios LIVE ACTION Movie Panel.

    This isn't about animation or television.

    Unless they're coming out to reveal Howard the Duck 2, it'll be about Episode VII.

    The boards might melt if the announcement deals with Howard the Duck 2 instead of Episode 7.

    How awful would it be if its just Kathleen and *whoever else maybe JJ* coming out on stage and saying "Yeah so we have Star Wars 7 coming out sometime in 2015. Unfortunatly its still too early to say anything so we're just gunna pass the time by reexplaining how excited we are to make this and avoid any questions. Have FUN!" Or something like that. That would be soo mean :p

    Something like this? :p

    Maybe the secret code name for the Howard the Duck 2 project is "Star Wars: Episode VII". :p
