    Doubt it. People will be too busy arguing over who should have won the oscars

    Don't think they do that sort of announcements at the Oscars.

    Do the oscars generally have a precedent of dishing out big announcements for new movies? :confused:

    i thought i remember seeing something on Kathleen Kennedy's twitter account (either hers or her husband's account) about some announcement coming at the oscars

    That JJ Abrams used time travel to somehow secure an oscar for Episode 7 in this year?

    Dont know if the oscars is the right place for SW related announcements, but I'm sure they'll soon confirm some of the signed actors. I know Jim Hellwig (former WWE champion Ultimate Warrior) was asked to portrait a super mutant from Byss, but from what I've heard no contract has been signed yet.

    Probably not. Why would there be?

    I'd love to see one of the spinoff movies announced tomorrow, preferably Star Wars: Jurassic Park. Starring ewoks vs. Dinosaurs.

    I'm ill.

    we're not going to see anything on a title until at least Comic-Con 2014...so don't hold your breath on that one...

    a casting announcement probably won't happen (unless the big 3 present an award together and say they're coming back...and we all implode), but casting stuff shouldn't be too far off... if they film from late June to mid-September (as was the case with all three prequels) then we should get casting stuff in maybe april or may (the May the Fourth date would be a good one to unveil something)

    but yeah, I don't think the oscars are generally where big "announcements" are made...but we truly never know...

    "Star Wars"
    "Oscars"

    These words are incompatible.

    A writer for the Latino-Review is holding back a story about the Justice League movie until after the Oscars. So it's not totally implausible for something to come out the next few days.

    I very much doubt there'd be an announcement at the Oscars. An announcement elsewhere at the time of the Oscars? Sure, but at the Oscars, nah. That's not what they're for. Plus Star Wars and the Oscars isn't something that goes together in my head.

    The Big Three might reunite to present an award. For what or to whom, I know not.

    lolno. The Oscars will be too busy giving awards to films that truly didn't deserve it.

    Presenters are generally announced ahead of time. Hence the current drama about Kristen Stewart as a presenter. Harry, Carrie, and Mark ain't on the list. [face_dunno]

    That sucks. Oh well, there will be other opportunities for them to reunite. And of course in 2015 will see the real deal.
