The word on the Star Wars street is that Disney’s big convention next week called D23 will reveal some big Star Wars VII news. Celebration Europe brought us news that John Williams will compose but no casting news was revealed. San Diego Comic Con brought nothing so the speculative fans amongst us are thinking that Disney are wanting the big news for their own convention.
To add weight to this, Disney have updated the official D23 schedule for Saturday, and has added Lucasfilm to the list of divisions that will be presenting something at the 10:30am live action panel:
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. With Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Disney’s Maleficent, Saving Mr. Banks, Tomorrowland, and Muppets Most Wanted, coming down the pike, make sure to claim your spot for the total package—surprises included! Cell phones, cameras, and all recording devices will be checked for this presentation.”
We’ll keep you updated.
