    those are just shots and dosen't represent anything. The series can be made and cancelled when you least expect it

    But Anji's Nexu is the only character to make it out of the FotJ alive and unharmed...

    I'm so sick of Chee's Ewok tweets.

    Better on Twitter than in the movie.

    That is true.

    Luke will appear on screen for the first time in 32 years, and then Chee will interrupt the movie to sing Yub Nub.

    Incidentally, both Chee and Pablo have been talking on Twitter about having been placed on "the new Story Team at LFL". How and if that relates to the ST as opposed to all the "lesser" stuff I couldn't imagine, but it definitely suggests that the Disney/Kennedy administration wants to remain at least EU-conversant if not strictly dogmatic.

    Good to hear, so long as they don't pull a Game of Thrones stunt and behave like the Small Council.

    "New leader in the fair Kingdom of LFL? Time to switch loyalties!"

    (I would not expect that of Chee and Hidalgo, of course. I expect them to enter the first LFL meeting and get pelted by cries of "blasphemy!" and "heretics!" within twenty minutes.)

    I want them to use the C'Baoth tactic.

    "So we thought that Han and Leia would have two daughters named Shmi and Padme-"
    "HOW DAARREE YOU!"

    -Hey, Mr Abrams, it'll be a really good idea to open the gates to the EU for the ST...
    -Thanks for the advice, Grand Maester Chee.

    Celebration VII confirmed
    Anaheim, CA, April 16-19, 2015

    Eh, I was kind of hoping for it to be summer/fall 2014 and have it be where they revealed/showed some of the first Ep7 stuff (trailer, etc). As it is, this is pretty close to their targeted release date, so it'll serve as the big final hype-generating party (I like how neatly them being 7s match-up). The atmosphere there should be amazing :D Also, since it's in CA, we might get a number of the Bad Robot/Lucas Film guys to show up (possibly Abrams/cast members?)

    Also, potentially tying into any Disneyland SW themed expansions.

    Ah, kriff. I'm usually on vacation in April anyways, so we won't be going. Here's hoping for CVIII...

    I might be able to wrangle that for my birthday. It's near it.

    Bumping, in light of this weekends D33 Expo in Anaheim, CA.

    Perhaps we will get our first insights into the Sequel Trilogy? [face_praying]

    CE though confirmed John Williams as well as a lot of minor more vague news like Warwick Davis getting something to do for sure, and how they approach/work on the Sequels. So I expect another namedrop or tidbit at last still.

    Disney also earlier denied any Star Wars or Lucasfilm presence at D23, yet now they have announced both will be there. That quote is likely to get expectations down in order to receive a positive reception from the media.

    As someone who doesn't want spoilers, I'd be concerned if they were dropping anything big this early in the game. A tidbit is fine, "big news" needs to wait. For a long time.

    What about casting news or characters? If they revealed so and so was cast as Han Solo Jr., would that be a spoiler?

    Depends on who you ask. I don't mind knowing that before the movie premiers but I think it's a little early right now.

    It's going to start filming in January, there's not a whole longer they can wait.

    The live-action panel at D23 just ended, and apparently nothing at all was said about Star Wars.

    All they've said so far is "Star Wars 7- Summer 2015" (and possible hints about "Orange Harvest" lol, the SW expansion to DisneyLand).
