    Today August 10th, 2013 has the potential to be the next biggest day in the new era of Star Wars after October 30th 2012. Today at Disney's D23 Expo we have the potential to learn some BIG new information to our burning questions:

    Are the BIG 3 returning?
    What is the subtitle?
    What date does it open? Will we get our traditional May release?

    In fact George Lucas mentioned a while ago that he had already been in discussions with the BIG 3 as to being part of the new ST. He inferred that the deal was nearly done. In fact Carrie Fisher has come out no less than 3 times to say she will reprise her role as Leia only to retract the statements. All 3 of the BIG 3 have expressed joyous interest in returning:

    So is today Disney's BIG "whoop-de-do?" Will the SW community go BOOM or will Disney BUST this opportunity to disappoint us all with marginally interesting tidbits about what kind of tweaks they make to their theme parks???

    Tell me BOOM or BUST?!

    Oh yeah, I think this is the day we finally get at least the Big 3 announcemen. I think Bob Iger is downplaying so Dinsey can at least generate a little surprise since the cat's been out of the bag for months now.

    I say Bust. Doubt they have enough/want to say that much to really make much of an impact.

    I say, if anything, we'll see the announcement of the Big Three. Probably not much more than that? Although, a release date probably wouldn't be out of the question.

    We'll see what happens. Part of me still doubts anything will happen based on everything else we've gone through this year, but I'm more confident about this one than the others.

    Bust. It would honestly be pretty lame if Igor said that we weren't getting any news, we spoiler-free folks let our guard down and paid attention, and then he releases something big.

    If they've got a scheduled release date, that would be cool if they let us know, but I'm not sure I'd consider that a "boom".

    ETA: This article says bust

    Am I the only one rolling my eyes at the tweets at the bottom? For ****'s sake people, if it's a summer 2015 release and not a May release, we're looking at a full two years away. Even when I was in the "spoil me rotten for the movie" mindset, I wasn't expecting any news two years out. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure we were a year or less from release of AOTC and ROTS when we got the titles. What the hell is up with all the whining about Disney "disappointing" Star Wars fans?

    I'm not disappointed in general nor do I feel betrayed, let down or anything - I simply wanted to get some news, there were none, so I'm a bit disappointed :p

    I can get that; that's different from a "Disney ****ed me without buying me dinner first" attitude.

    Considering that the D23 expo is biannual and the next one won't be until after Episode VII debuts this was a bit of a wasted opportunity. Then again they may not have wanted to overshadow all the other announcements from the expo which Star Wars would have easily done.

    I'm reminded of the Jeff Foxworthy joke about rotating tires...

    They could have at least told us that this will be "Episode 7", and is not a secret codename for Star Trek 3. :p
