    Wow I just saw all this -- I'm sorry bro! :( Yeah, you peeps can all blame me. I shall hold my head in shame and even stop dancing on TCW's grave. For a minute.

    I forgot it was con season! Stuff gets announced in the summer!

    ...to be subsequently cancelled and/or delayed in the winter.

    If they announce this thing the day before April Fool's, I will weep.

    Sounds like the news will be coming soon from EW online.

    From Randy's facebook page on Wednesday.

    OK, so that means the announcement is probably coming today, and Randy will probably touch upon it a little more at Sunday's panel.

    I didn't think the predictions would come true. But they did........

    Invasion spin-off:

    Kaye - slaughtering everyone who irritates her and that is everyone!

    The forum would burn for days!

    Do you have some insider knowledge or something?

    Hmm, I have a hunch it is something much bigger than simply announcing a new series. Perhaps news related to the Disney acquisition of Star Wars and its potential affect on Dark Horse? Maybe Disney is letting the keep the license?

    I don't imagine that Randy would announce an Ackbar series without telling me first, so it is obviously something different.:p

    After LucasArts, Lucas Film Animation Division, The CLone Wars, 1313, Detours, and whatever else Disney may have ended or cancelled, I am not holding my breath fro Dark Horse to keep the liscense, but I would love for the announcement to touch upon what is going on there, and mybe even reveal Dark is getting to kep it.

    I know it's unlikely, but I'd LOVE for this to be an anthology. 3 stories, 7-8 pages per story, once a month. It could offer something for everyone. Conclusions to KE, Invasion, etc. New story ideas. Anything you can imagine.

    While I'm not exactly keeping my hopes up for Dark Horse's long term future, I'm doubtful about this particular announcement being related to that as this announcement of an announcement about the future announcement's announcement has been going on so long that whatever it is must have been planned ages ago, whereas most of the recent cancellations have been fairly recent decisions to anyone outside the senior Disney bigwhigs themselves.

    Filoni, after all, didn't get the option to break the news nicely. Disney did that for him, so I'm not expecting Dark Horse to have been given the luxury of a long build up to that kind of news.

    No basis at all? Just a wild guess?

    Oh OK, just wondered if there'd been talk of it....

    I just know that J.W. Rinzler, a writer for Lucasbooks said there would be a huge publishing announcement in Entertainment Weekly in the near future, and this was a few weeks ago.

    The predictions by other posters that Randy would continue to delay and delay and then make announcement about the announcement. It came true!

    I foolishly thought he would have gotten straight to the point and announced it himself
