    I'm ready for some big announcements at D23, they have given Star Wars the slot of Saturday afternoon at 5, this is THE PRIME SLOT for this event so I am sure they have big things planned :) I'm sure the proximity to LA may have factored in holding some appearances/announcements till this event.

    I was fully expecting D23 announcements from the beginning. I work for Disney so I know a little bit about how they do things and this was pretty obvious. It also isn't a coincidence that the next Celebration is in Anaheim the month before EP VII is supposed to come out either.

    They're confiscating phones, but as soon as I get my phone back I'll post.

    The UPDATED description states:

    "Go behind the scenes at The Walt Disney Studios with this revealing look at our upcoming roster of live-action adventures from Disney, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. Fans will enjoy exclusive video clips, filmmaker discussions, and star appearances at this session hosted by Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn, Disney Live Action Production President Sean Bailey, and Marvel Studios President and Producer Kevin Feige..."

    The Lucasfilm bit guarantees that we'll get at least something. :D

    I saw this tweet from Pablo Hidalgo just prior to the start of Celebration....just remembered it reading this thread.

    Hope the Internet can come to a consensus on the latest rumor soon. My last slide in my d23 presentation depends on it.

    Pablo is doing a Star Wars 101 panel on Sunday. His tweet isn't connected to the big panel on Saturday, and I think he's referring to the Foodles rumor.

    So what do you think they are going to announce?
    Personally if this ends up being a massive announcement I think we'll see:
    -The Cast
    -JJ Abrams
    -Some concept art (e.g a villain)
    -Possibly reveal the title?

    No way will they show the villain, even if it's just part of some concept art. I'd say confirmation of the Big 3 and the release date. If they're feeling REALLY generous, perhaps the title/logo, and maybe concept art of a spaceship.

    Good stuff! What other insights can you give us?

    I'll play the part of wet blanket peeps. The only announcement I expect is that Disney will confirm the Big 3 BUT that will be enough for me. I'd be surprised if they cast everyone already, although I fear the timing of the Gosling/Effron rumors to be too coincidental (time-wise) in all this craziness just to be rumors.

    Not the villain, but a villain. Much like the reveal of Grievous before Episode 3.

    I seriously doubt they would even show a minor villain at this point. Grievous wasn't revealed until about a year before the Ep3 came out, and that was many months after principal photography had wrapped.

    Awesome!

    Finally a mention of Lucasfilm! That's very promising!

    According to the schedule his panel is on Saturday at 5pm but obviously that has changed.

    Eh I'm pretty sure we will get the title/logo. Disney is huge about branding, and TAU2 already got theirs which is in the same release date. I think they will show it. Usually when they announce Disney films they announce the titles/reveal the logos as well. They've done it for most the Marvel Films.

    Yeah, but a title is not really necessary at this point. "Star Wars: Episode 7" is branding enough....

    But, whatever, we will see next week.....

    So is The Avengers 2. But they did not do that.

    Confirmation of Big 3, possible confirmation of other main casting roles, possible title. Sounds about right.

    At the very least they confirmed we are getting a new SW ride announcement, I'm hoping for a Disneyland Tomorrowland SW makeover but it might be kind of akward with Brad Bird's Tomorrowland on the horizon.

    I honestly do not like the idea of Tomorrowland being converted into Star Wars land. I don't mind if a small portion of it is designated as a Star Wars section(basically an expanded Star Tours). But Star Wars was never about humanity in the future. Tomorrowland serves as(or should)as a peak into the possibilities for humans on earth. Not humans reconceptualized in a galaxy far far away....

    If they really want to make a Star Wars land. Its better off being an off shoot park like MGM studios...

    That was in response to a rumor posted at ClubJade at the beginning of July, which stated that some familiar faces will be making an appearance to make the cast announcement. The truth is, we just don't know. Disney is obviously keeping things a secret, but we will find out soon enough.
