Disney to Reveal Big STAR WARS: EPISODE VII News at D23 Expo?
It's no surprise that Star Wars is going to be a huge part of Disney's upcoming D23 Expo. They are planning events like Darth Vader: The Evolution of a Villain, which will show the development of the character, as well as a Crash Course in the Force: Star Wars Saga 101. There are bigger things in store for the event, though.
THR is now reporting that the studio also has big plans for Star Wars: Episode VII. Instead of revealing any news at Comic-Con next week, they are going to be stingy and save it for D23. According to insiders, Disney and Lucasfilm will be making some announcements about the film, including confirming some of the Star Wars actors that will be returning to the franchise. Apparently the actors are going to show up and make an appearance at the expo.
It would be awesome if they also announced the stand alone films they are developing as well. I don't see why they wouldn't. At this point I'm sure they know what they're doing over the next 5 or 6 years.
I guess we'll just have to wait and see. We'll be there to report on everything they reveal!
