UPDATE! Official Star Wars Announcement Coming in the Next Days?

star wars announcements

There has been plenty of rumors lately and the time has come for some official announcements. There are several independent sources on the web all suggesting that something big is coming. Take a look at all the internet buzz about it...



Here are some of the sources in chronological order:

From JediNews:
A huge story has hit our desks here at Jedi News. We are working hard to confirm the details but we understand that Lucasfilm are gearing up for a major Episode VII announcement.

From LatinoReview:
I’m hearing there is a major casting news dropping very soon via Lucasfilm. It could even be officially announced today… but I promised that I wouldn’t say a word on it. 
According to them the announcement won't be liked by the fans:
 
From BadAss:
I do think we're very close to some major casting announcements, and there's been a huge rumor ping-ponging among the film bloggers that could surface in a couple of days. 

From Tracy Cannobbio at Lucasfilm:


From AICN:

According to them the announcement will be well received.


From SuperheroMovie:

They are the only one stating a date of the announcement - tomorrow! So stay tuned. This all can't be just a coincidence.


UPDATE!

Few more interesting twitter reactions (thanks to MagnarTheGreat from the superherohype forums)




That was a pretty different reaction from the others. It really sounds like Damen is talking about Leonardo DiCaprio who was rumored to be part of Star Wars some time ago.

Now some reactions with a different tone:

star wars cast

Considering that Monday is Labor Day in the USA we could expect some announcements from Tuesday till Friday next week.

  1. SUper excited!! If it's casting news then I'm guessing it will be about Mark, Carrie and Harrison as I presume other casting hasn't been done yet. Can't wait to find out.

    1. Although actually, having said this I've read from Jeremy Smith/mrbeaks twitter;-
      "This is someone cast in a specific role."
      So if it's going to be just one person, then I'm guessing this isn't the time for a Mark, Carrie, and Harrison announcement. Probably a big name/acclaimed actor playing the villain? I need to stop speculating.

    2. I read speculating 'news' about bradley cooper so let's wait and see.

  2. Well this is intriguing and worrying all at once. On the one hand we will finally know something solid. On the other we may not like it heh. I have a feeling I'm more open to casting choices than most. The way I look at it is... It's Star Wars. It's New and it's not the prequels.

  3. JJA is calling the shots?
    Well, that means it's gonna be some shitty hipster "actor" with heavy glasses
    and high-top Converse® sneakers.
    Bleccchhh.

    1. Hater like you has no place here!

    2. Quiet, you!
      It's called "Freedom Of Expression".
      Look into it.

      Delete
    3. LOL. "Quiet you!" and "freedom of expression" are pretty hypocritical and contrasting statements. He is right anyway. You're just being a hater rather than giving any valid and constructive comments so you clearly don't have the "freedom of expression" because it's not expression, it's pointless hate.

    4. Oh shut up.
      Lib faggots, such as yourself, like everything, everyone gets a trophy, etc.
      You have ZERO critical faculties because it's been beaten out of you
      by the lib-saturated mainstream media & the so-called "education system".
      To have to "constructively comment" on why JJA sucks ass only
      speaks to that loudly & clearly.
      Now put on your high-top Converse sneakers and thick horn-rimmed glasses & STFU.

      Delete
    5. Wow. Bravo I commend you for that. I mean that was the biggest pile of bullshit claiming to be an argument I think I've ever seen. Well firstly. 'lib faggots'. Haha, clearly you need to call me a faggot because when it comes to the points I make, I'm right, and you feel threatened, you then have no argument against me, and instead of telling me 'Yeah you're right', or simply ignoring me, you end up being saying weird personal comments, such as 'faggot' towards me rather than address what I am saying. Secondly, you are clearly making up assumptions now. I am well within my capabilities of creating a critic. But hey, give me an example on what I have said where you feel the media has prevented me from creating a proper critic. I would be very interested to hear why you could possibly think this. Thirdly, you actually didn't explain why supposedly 'JJA sucks ass', you just claimed that I am inept of seeing the reasoning.
      "Now put on your high-top Converse sneakers and thick horn-rimmed glasses & STFU." Oh dear, oh dear. Is that your defense? And what is it with you and 'high-top converse sneakers'? You clearly have run out of things to say again. When you just say random and facetious things it's a clear sign you don't really have anything other than random insults to say me so end up resorting an attempt to assert your dominance by 'putting me in my place', so to speak. How pathetic. So now what, are you going to call me a faggot again? A dickhead? I mean how old are you, 13? You don't hear 'faggot' in parliament. You don't hear 'faggot' on the news. It's because it's pointless and only shows you are a child when it comes to conforming a constructive debate. And any points you do make, are complete assumptions with no evidence, other than relying on your own opinion of something, rather than a fact.

    6. Sadly this once was a nice small community just getting together to talk about Star Wars... A few folks didn't like the prequels some did. Yet we all got along.

      Now it's devolved into this. It was nice while it lasted.

  4. Logic is first name " old" actors which are back - Mark, Carrie and Harrison! Then new and fresh faces. Hope Alos for the title and release date. As is said May 1 is best date for Star Wars 7!

    ReplyDelete
  5. bradley cooper? One site speculate that bradley cooper is cast in star wars!

    I love Bradley but really like idea about unknown names and fresh faces!

    1. Yeah I'm leaning towards the unknowns or lessor known too. I like Bradley otherwise.

    2. Isn't he doing 35 years in the Federal pokey for treason?

  6. Why May 1st?
    That's the day of the Devil -- a witch's holiday!

    1. star wars premieres were always in may. And Star Wars Celebration will be April 16 - 19 2015 so its best date!

      Delete
    2. I didn't say why in May.
      I DID say: Why MAY THE FIRST.
      See, Einstein?
      Well, what should I expect a from a JJ Abrahms fan ....

      Delete
    3. omfg how embarrassing. I would like to interrupt to say.. uhm .. it's not JJ 'Abrahms' it's 'Abrams'.
      *Cough* fucking hypocritical idiot who judges people purely based on if they are a fan of someone else or not who they themselves are not a fan of, while the other person never even mentions JJ Abrams in their original comment anyway so wow both a fucking idiot and just a hater with no valid argument whatsoever *cough*

      Delete
    4. You're still not addressing the fact that you deliberately misquoted me.
      But whatever.

      Delete
    5. mmm nope. Pretty sure "JJ Abrahms" was not misquoted at all pal !

      Delete
    6. He, PAL.
      Obviously I mean the part where you misquote me on what I said about the date, PAL.
      Put down the rattle for 2 seconds & learn how to read, PAL.
      Imbecile ....

      Delete
    7. 'He, PAL'. wtf?
      and lmao that wasn't me who commented on the date dumbass. That's why I said "I would like to interrupt". Clearly you are the one who needs to learn how to read..
      Imbecile.

      Delete
    8. HEY, you retarded subhuman filth -- read if you're able, the name.
      It says ANONYMOUS, right?
      How the fuck am I supposed to differentiate between
      one faceless, spineless coward & the next?
      Maybe if you weren't such a pussy & would actually stand behind
      what you say by putting a name to it, I wouldn't've made that error.
      Ass ....

    9. "How the fuck am I supposed to differentiate between
      one faceless, spineless coward & the next?"
      You don't even know what you're talking about. Differentiating and simply just seeing there is more than one person, simply reading, are very different things. Plus You do realise the majority on this site are anonymous don't you?.. Have you come to the conclusion that everyone is the same person then because you can't differentiate between them. And you really can't read can you. Well I shall answer you AGAIN. I said "I would like to interrupt". How can you interrupt your own conversation. I'M CLEARLY SOMEBODY ELSE. I believe later in my comment I actually talked about the person you were talking to anyway. "-..while the OTHER PERSON never..-".
      And seriously? Ass? You're obviously just annoyed at me because I'm proving you wrong all the time haha. Am I talking to a monkey or something? If I were you I would probably stop replying to me because it must be pretty embarrassing for you. And because I don't have a Googleaccount, livejorunal account, wordpress account ect, so choose to just go anonymous, I am a pussy?.. right.
      OMG THE MESSAGE IS TITLED 'IPADCARLY' AS OPPOSED TO 'ANONYMOUS' OMG HE MUST NOT BE A PUSSY THEN.
      Get a grip man.

  9. At this point I'd be happy with news on the type of wood they are using to build sets. Tell me everything I'm totally fine with that! Let's go!

    1. what are you then ? damn cuz we all like this idiotic movie?

  11. My bet's Benedict, with the hints of possible negativity coming from the STID issues and crossing franchises. In spite of that, it would make sense if JJA wanted the best for ST7 regardless. And BC just happens to have coincidentally jumped from another movie and the announcement just happens to have waited on Sherlock's filming to finish (presumably in order to avoid even more problematic crowds).

    ReplyDelete
  12. Please, please not BC.

    1. I never thought of that.
      Well, given that JJ Abrams is hackery incarnate,
      you can bet your bottom dollar BC is a LOCK.

    2. Nah, BC won't happen.

  13. I think JJ needs to pick up some of the cast from Lost; some good actors from that series.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am start thinking that nobody knows and they all lie that they knows anything. I mean if so many people really know some of them sill say it buy now and some site will post it. Latino review write so many 'news' with less info.

  15. Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Garrett Hedlund? Associated with Disney already?

    ReplyDelete
  17. When I see suggestions like Cumberbatch, Day-Lewis and Hardy... you make me think of all the amazing character arcs and acting that could be in Star Wars.

    Please... For the love of the originals... pull this off.

  21. Well, there's are some ways they can release news, without really releasing anything new.

    They could release a new Star Wars logo. That would be a pretty big nothing.

    They could release that Ford, Hamill, Fisher, Daniels, and Williams are cast and returning, something many of us already suspect anyway.

    They could release the title of the new film, which isn't really much but its something I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm going to predict the titles for the 3 films right now:

    A New Conflict
    Return of the Sith
    Balance of the Force

  23. yawn! a week later and still no official announcement.
    If we're lucky maybe we will know something official before Christmas.

    All the rumours on this "news" website are getting boring now. Where is the actual news about episode 7 to be found here that we don't know already, just rumour after rumour.... boring!!!

    1. The official announcement will be first released on StarWars.com. If you want "real news" go and wait there. The purpose of this fan blog here is different. It collects and summarizes all news, scoops and rumors about the new movies. Without rumors the long wait would be really boring.

  24. Still waiting...
