    I'm still putting money on that table that there's an announcement within 72 hours after Oscar night. Especially if Madame Kennedy gets her Oscar.

    Well......how long till comic con or whenever the next big nerd convention is? Then we can FORCE them to give us news. *though they' might be stalked by the Disney and Abrams sniper so we might not get concrete answers*

    Comic Con is usually in July. Star Wars Weekends starts in... May? And obviously there's May the Fourth.

    Oh I hope you're right about that! Right now I'm probably checking the official site like every half hour or so just to make sure I don't miss it! :p

    I dont know about the Oscars, but KISS literally showed up un-announced at the 1996 Grammy's and announced their reunion tour........

    Yes, but anyone who judges themselves by the standard of KISS, inevitably finds themselves sorely lacking.

    Sorry, that was probably a poorly worded attempt at saying KISS can get away with things that mere mortals do not dare. :)

    I can't tell if you are sarcastic or not.

    If not, can you point us to a source? Byss is a big plot tidbit if there is any truth there...

    It's true, I read the same thing. Also, Betty White is in negotiations to play Vima Da Boda.

    I'm pretty sure SW will at least get a mention by McFarlane as a safe joke, though. With a cut to JJ's face hesitating before realizing the camera is on him and then fake smiles/laughs.

    You'll let us know when your sources confirm that, I hope.

    The plot is, obviously, set in the Unknown Regions.

    You know what would be the best thing ever? Tonight right before best picture, the lights dim, the screens pop up, "And the winner is..." and they just run a super-shot-and-finished-in-secret Episode 7 trailer featuring the big three and the bad guy and the new characters and everything. Lights come back up, Abrams is standing there and says "Star Wars in summer 2015, g'nite everybody!" roll credits. Best oscars ever.

    That's beyond wishful thinking, I'm afraid. :)
