    University library (UCLAN, UK) (study room) with Greengreatwarrior - Working on a current student film. He blurted out "Star Wars, Disney, 2015, Episode VII" or something to that nature. I replied "**** off" - he showed me. The room fell silent.


    Please star out the whole word.

    Sitting down to eat dinner. TV was on in the background and I heard it on ABC news. Almost broke the chair when I got up to hear the story.

    I was sitting at my desk and I saw it on comingsoon.net. So I quickly came over to the JC Community and posted the announcement thread. Great times.

    I saw it mentioned in a thread on reddit and my first thought was "okay why is this silly joke being upvoted" until I followed the link.

    I was at home and my husband told me -- I had been so swamped at work that I didn't check emails or anything until I had started dinner -- which was after my husband told me.

    He works for a division of Technicolor and one of the vendors he deals with is Disney -- he forwarded an email he received from his Disney contact and that person forwarded the email he received from Bob Iger.

    I'm still trying to process everything!!! :D

    I hopped casually onto Facebook when a fellow fan put up the link. I thought it was some sort of practical joke until I Gooogled it and found out how many news offices were reporting about it. First I was thrown into utter shock and disbeleif, then anger. Now I've gotten used to the idea and am very excited about the movies!

    I was at work, literally sitting on the toilet, when I thought Hey let's check TF.N (only stopped by to read CW Season 5 reviews).
    I was so shocked surprised I didn't drop my iPad in the toilet

    When my girlfriend was watching ENews. I heard the words Walt Disney buys Lucasfilm and Episodes 7, 8 and 9 will be released starting in the year 2015. I couldn't believe it, so I checked the Force.net as soon as I could. Boy, was I glad it wasn't some kind of a joke. This is a dream come true. I remember talking about this since me and my friends wore short pants.

    I was sitting on the floor of my bedroom, looking into my smartphone. Stunned, I had to google it to make sure that it wasn't just a stupid joke. Links to USA Today and Washington Post gave me a feeling that this was the real deal...
    I just couldn't believe it. Here I'd been thinking that there would never be an ST. I was even planning on finally writing my own ST, after struggling for about ten years with mapping out the story. Just like that, I no longer had to worry about that. I just had to sit back and wait for the actual friggin' Star Wars Sequel Trilogy to be released!

    Whew! What I ride these past days have been.





    Star Wars - gotta love it

    I was still in my PJs when I got onto Yahoo and it was one of the first news articles. All it said for the headliner was Disney buys Star Wars. As I read through it I came across the news about Episode VII and had to do a double take.
    Anybody remember that jumped they did in Anchorman ("lets buy new suits, yay!")? I pretty much did that jump after hearing about a new movie.

    Riding out Hurricane Sandy.

    My cousin (who happened to keep his power throughout the whole thing) told me he saw the news that morning and told me as soon as I arrived at his house to crash for the night. I told him I'm cut off from civilization for one day and this happens! :p

    I was on twitter. Then the tf.n tweet popped up. Thought it was a lie, so I googled it. And it wasn't showing up. Then tf.n tweeted a link. So I clicked it and then headed over here to see if anyone else had started talking about it.
