    I was just about to suggest making a neat little summary list to discuss. Good stuff.

    I'm pretty keen on Adam Driver. I think he could do a great job.

    You said it. *drools*

    And I have to admit, after all of the "tomorrow's" folks have been looking forward to since what feels like forever, the description of this event now makes it the first time I really expect we may hear something.

    - "Classic cast members"
    - George Lucas himself in attendance
    - Only top Disney execs are invited

    Thursday could be our day.

    That would be cool, but I'm not gonna hold my breath...again...Even though we are inevitably going to get news soonish.

    While it does sound interesting, I doubt anything interesting will be revealed *well...to us anyways*. Most likely they'll tell the execs somethings but then they'll be sworn to secrecy. :rolleyes:

    Well, you could always open up an animation studio in an underprivileged country and exploit the workers. That seems to have worked for Disney execs in the past.

    Nothing interesting is going to happen. The meeting will probably be a bunch of suits asking each other "What do we not already own?"

    I don't think they'll be able to keep a room full of 100 execs from spilling the beans and are they going to blindfold and gag the waiters? If it's true the timing seems right, GL there, not to mention they are already freaking shooting. I'm hopeful sounds like it might be the big one to me.

    Depends if there is cold cuts, a free bar, and ample illicit substances.

    Poor George will be in the corner, like some elderly WW2 vet talking about American Zoentrope.

    I am a Star Wars fan who is constantly optimistic concerning the release of cast information, but I am also a realist......So, I am not counting my gungans until they are slaughtered. :p

    Eh, it's just breakfast. Who wouldn't want SW themed scrambled eggs and Vader shaped pancakes?

    And you know this because? Seriously though, we are all just having a little fun over the idea. No need to drown it with opinion based declarations of truth.

    Unless we are talking home fries, sausage (links and patties), bacon, slice of ham, fried eggs and biscuits and gravy, then I don't want anything to do with it.

    Or...

    Unless we are talking scrambled eggs with spicy Italian sausage and sourdough toast, then I don't want anything to do with it.

    psst....I'm being sarcastic. I also thought some of you would have gotten my obscure Monty Python reference.

    Guess not...

    It'll be nice if things actually came through on Thursday. Keeping my fingers crossed, but not getting my hopes up.

    George Lucas is in attendance with some classic cast members and we're not even a month away from principle photography beginning. I know we've gotten our hopes up before but I personally believe there's a very good chance that something will come out of this. This breakfast would be a great opportunity for a photo with these "classic cast members" and Lucas and Iger and maybe even JJ which could then accompany the press release they put out announcing the return of Mark, Carrie and Harrison.

    I tend to agree, although classic cast members could be Artoo, Vader and Chewy dressed up in costumes. By the way, how reliable is the site that is announcing this?
