    I just wish they'd quit giving us news about everything related to starwars except Episode VII.
    You know talking about new TV series developments or whatever. We don't care about all that other crap.
    JUST GIVE US EPISODE VII NEWS ALREADY! :mad:What's the hold up? I still have this gut feeling that Mark, Carrie and Harrison are just messing with us and they aren't going to be involved at all. I'm about to lose interest in this whole new trilogy if we don't get something to spark our imaginations about how this could all turn out.
    Come on throw us a friggin bone here!

    they will probably give us May 19, 2015 or whatever And maybe the title. I mean, the announcement at Celebration was that JW was scoring...which I thought we already knew. I have a feeling the announcement will be similarly lame and they will "officially" announce the Big 3.....which we already knew months ago.

    I think the big three will get announced. I think the main leads announcements will be parceled out over the next couple months. I think that could be an effective way of keeping Star Wars "in the news."

    But, who knows? They could do the "whole shebang" on Saturday.....

    I would definitely say that's something theme park related. If you look at the crate on the left side of the screen, it says, "Figrin D'an and the Model Nodes," which suggests to me that it has something to do with the proposed cantina themed restaurant. Besides that, Orange Harvest suggests either Florida or California, so either DL or WDW.

    But who knows...maybe they wrapped everything into one and are calling it Orange Harvest.

    One of the boxes is also addressed to Disney Imagineers.

    Unless "Orange" is a reference to Orange County which is the county I think that Disneyland resides in.

    LOL! I just edited my post to say the same thing! Disney World also resides in Orange County, FL (or the majority of it, anyway).

    The Orange Harvest thing is for the parks. That's in the Imagineering pavilion.

    Early morning tomorrow. We're getting up at 4 for the first panel. Good thing I'm right across the street!

    Well orange harvest certainly has an interesting tag-line: "Speculation beyond imagination."
    [​IMG]
    I think it is probably something to do with the theme parks... but the speculation part leads me to think it might be something more. :confused:

    Maybe it's just my imagination but IMO the hole in that crate looks like it's roughly the same size and shape as R2D2. Other than that I have no idea what Orange Harvest is.

    Well D23 is tomorrow and I will be voraciously scouring the internets for new NEWS! If none I will become pissed!!!! At the very least I fully expect that we will hear the announcement that the BIG 3 are in fact BACK!
    Actually, that idea is so simple its brilliant -- Disney misses the boat for not putting this as a live stream on the web, say the SW official site. Could have had advertising and everything. Imagine that, millions of viewers worldwide watching the live SW announcements from Disney's D23 Expo?!

    Just wanted to throw it out there...apparantly Marvel is doing a live blog of their Panel so...if Marvel can do a live blog...then maybe Disney will allow SW to do one too. Just some hoping.

    The official realease date actually doesn't mean all that much to me, it's sometime in the middle of 2015, a week or even a month more or less doesn't make that much difference. I'd prefer some specifics about the story and characters. However, I doubt we'll get anything like that yet, but hey, I can hope.

    Oh, I, personally, wouldn't go quite that far.

    I mean, on the Star Wars front, there is nothing which excites me and peaks my interest more than Episodes 7, 8 and 9 (yes, especially as news relates to Luke and his son), but I'm still very much looking forward to the stand-alone features, Rebels, the possibility of a live action show, new action figures, novels, video games, comics, and the like.

    Basically, I figure I'm the pretty much the ideal fan as far as Disney/Lucasfilm are concerned. I want it all and I'm standing here with the disposable portion of my income saying "take my money, please!" Oh, and my child is two years old, and can often be heard asking "watch Star Wars?" So I guess I'm playing my part in helping to bring the next generation of fans along, too. Around these parts, I can't imagine this makes me unique. :D

    Iger says no news in D23. They don't have too many details to share just yet... Downer.

    I'm going to be the optimistic one hear saying they might be just lowering our expectations for a reveal tomorrow. I mean are they just going to bs the entire Lucasfilm presentation tomorrow?

    I think he's joking. All the information I found online (all posted within the past couple of hours, btw) are reporting that they're still expecting a reveal. Unless he has another source, I wouldn't buy into it.
