    Ok, I just realized what I reeeeeeeeally want to confirm next before aaaaannything else: Will 7, 8 and 9 conclude the 1-6 story thread or will it begin a completely new story? The answer to this will guide my speculation for every other aspect of the film.

    I am greedy!

    We know ST is happening! JJ in, Ardnt in, big 3 plus plus kinda in...

    I want to hear if KOTOR/TOR movies will be made.

    I want to hear how many spin-off movies will be made.

    I want to hear if movies set hundreds or thousands of years after ROTJ will be made?

    I like a lot of my fave actors to be in the SW movies. I would like Disney to take in Chloe Moretz, Yvonne Strahovsky Summer Glau, Chris Pine, Karl Urban, Brandon Routh, the entire cast of Avengers, Chow Yuan Fatt, Donnie Yen, entire cast of Nolan's Batman.............

    The next bit of news would obviously be some actors. But I'm also really interested in the technical team they will assemble for the film: composer, sound folks, vfx people, designers, etc.

    The next big news should be, in my opinion, the TITLE.

    I can pretty much say I'm certain that Mark will be in it. We don't need to worry about that.

    I'm hoping for news on who the lead will be and a clear timeline, but I expect to be waiting awhile for this.

    Maybe it doesn't have a title, and it's just called Star Wars? I mean Rambo 4 was just called "Rambo".

    The news that the trilogy will feature Grand Admiral Thrawn. On a more serious note, a plot announcement would be nice.

    Maybe a premise announcement. I certainly would not want the plot revealed.

    We probably won't get anything significant until the Summer.

    Yup I knew that. I can't remember when they officially changed it though. Was it when the special editions were released or back in the 80's?

    CASTING CASTING CASTING

    Nothing is more important than having good actors act in this one.

    I can't wait to hear what the title will be and who will be in the movie like who our main heroes and villian shall be.

    The subtitle was added in the crawl at least before Jedi came out in '83. The first video cover to use it was, I believe, the VHS of the special edition. The official title is still "Star Wars", though.

    My favourite news would be the casting of the Big 3 and other lead actors. Though I was terribly spoiled for the PT (TFN Virtual Edition ;)) I have high hopes that the plot might remain a secret this time since they managed to keep the plot of ST Into Darkness and the identity of Cumberbatch secret till now as well...

    If the "Big Three" return, here's exactly* how the news will breakā€¦

    On a Friday around 6pm ET.

    Nationally televised broadcast from the White House...

    President Obama:

    My fellow Americans, do not be alarmed by this sudden break into your evening programming. I have the privilege to announce on behalf of Disney, Kathleen Kennedy and George Lucas that Mark Hamill will reprise the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode VII. Joining him will be Carrie Fisher as Leia and Harrison Ford as Han Solo.

    I have been in the situation room with my national security team and engineers from Google all day because we have determined that this news has the potential to crash the entire Internet and shut down the world economy.

    So, please, do not post this to Facebook, do not tweet, do not email.

    But we're not here to shut down the conversation. I'd now like to turn this broadcast over to Chris Hardwick, who will conduct a quick 15-minute panel discussion with JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and the iconic three.

    (panel ensues)

    Thank you Chris. Well done. I think we're all encouraged by this course of events. And Harrison, do me a solid, in your next scene: shoot first.

    My fellow citizens, please remember, if you absolutely have to talk about this, please do it at a bar or a coffee shop. No tweeting.

    God bless you, God bless the United States of America, and may The Force be with you.

    ^^^ You lost me at Obama.

    BTW -- for the peeps that wanted a new design for the official site, not exactly a new design but a new format on the home page.

    The Actors of course.

    My dream about: They just post a picture on the official Site of the whole Maincast in Costume. The old and the new Generation.
