UPDATE 2! The Thursday Breakfast Event is Happening Right Now!

star wars

The guys from MakingStarWars continue to post evidence that the breakfast event being held for George Lucas, classic Star Wars cast members and Disney executives is indeed happening, despite some denial reports from other sites...



From MakingStarWars:
The team at MakingStarWars.net is not promising you any Star Wars: Episode VII announcements. We are hearing lots of things about them, but there is no conclusive link to this breakfast and Star Wars: Episode VII. It appears to be a level above coincidence, but there is no evidence beyond the shadow of a doubt. At this precise moment, we can only confirm to you that the breakfast itself is happening. 

We are saying this special executive breakfast is taking place today. Because it is.
The breakfast is important and most likely is to celebrate something related to the development of Star Wars: Episode VII. Our sources believe this to be the case, but they do not know for sure. We personally would find it weird if George Lucas and some of the original trilogy cast showed up to an announcement about theme park development or something to do with products and toys.

Very early in the morning for us west coasters, we received these images before the breakfast was to begin. If you still do not believe the breakfast is taking place, I don’t know how we can convince you. There are other parts to this story I can never post without endangering our sources. I am not going to do that. At this juncture, this is what we can show you.

Stay tuned for more. Congrats to Jason and the MakingStarWars team for the great scoop.

P.S. Oh, and Happy Birthday to me. Thanks Lucasfilm for celebrating my birthday in such classy way with so many important guests. I'm touched. :)


And while we wait for something to happen here's a pretty interesting tweet from Vulture's Senior Editor Kyle Buchanan:

UPDATE!

A minor update from makingstarwars:
The facts we have so far:

  • All the executives that were invited made it.
  • The event lasted from 8am-11:30am.
  • VIPS were sitting outside which made it hard for some staff to see them.
We are still waiting on some sources about the rumored guests beyond Disney Executives.

UPDATE 2!

More rumors from the breakfast:
From what we have heard about the event, there was a lot of discussion about Boba Fett at the breakfast. The executives are apparently enthusiastic about the rocket man. There are some minor problems going forward with a film about a villain, however. The general problem with Boba Fett is how to use him effectively without ruining his evil essence to make him the protagonist of a Star Wars Spin-off film. The executive was overheard (paraphrased) as saying:
"Lucasfilm wants Boba Fett to remain menacing and scary but we have to make him the hero of the film and it is a real challenge."
Lucasfilm is adapting the Marvel model for most of what they are doing but there isn’t a clear cut precedence for a Boba film to follow. So far, Marvel hasn’t been able to figure out how to make a villain into a hero while keeping the villain dangerous and evil outside of Loki’s antics through various Marvel films.

  2. Are people still going to call bullshit on this breakfast still. "We personally would find it weird if George Lucas and some of the original trilogy cast showed up to an announcement about theme park development or something to do with products and toys." lol, cannot agree more. If original cast members are there, then this is the day for their announcement. and Happy Birthday to Viral. May the force be with you !!

  4. Wasn't the food going to be Star Wars-themed? I imagine an enormous block of marzipan, shaped like a ife-size Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

    The Jar-Jar Ice Cake is also a must. Not because anyone will eat it, but so that the guests can have the satisfaction of seeing it melt away and disappear.

    1. Enough of the Jar Jar hate. Sheesh. You interject this 15-year-old prejudice into everything. I know the gungans ruined your 'awesome' childhood, but really. Grow up.

    2. Since I'm born in 1971, my admittedly awesome childhood ended long before the glorious appearance of Mr. Binks in 1999. But I'm sure the participants in the breakfast can honor him: Put some food on the plate, shoot out your tongue and pick up the goodies in a fraction of a second! Just make sure the guy sitting next to you doesn't have Jedi reflexes, in case he doesn't appreciate your table manners.

  7. The fact that they're trying to hide it from our eyes is a pretty good indication that real announcements will be made at this breakfast, although it may not be for the fans to see just yet. I truly hope we get some sort of confirmation out of this.

Enjoy your breakfast and may the force be with you."

    3. Happy Bday, Viral! I was four when you were born, & that June or July I read the Time Magazine article with Lucas, & there my troubles began. After that, I was interested in what was to come in Ep's VI, I, II, & III, but it was the sequels that were strangely calling to me. For years, I battled classmates, friends, girlfriends, family, etc. over the "there are only six films, and nothing more". On Oct 30 2012, it was my room mate that brought the news to me with a handshake, saying "I just wanted to congratulate you on being right." "About what?" What indeed. Anyway, hope your birthday has been a blast, & hopefully we will all get the casting announcement sooner than later!

    1. Yeah, I have not doubt that people are having breakfast in Disney World right now, but whether or not those people include George, Carrie, Mark, and Harrison is still up for debate...

    2. ya seems like a perhaps dingy, perhaps dated, cheesy back drop for an important announcement. Seems a little off and why would it be "personally weird" if George meet with Disney people and old cast members there? (btw do we know those specific people are meeting?) why couldnt it be a theme park or other related announcement, why wouldnt they want press theree if they were making an announcement on cast?

      I'd love to eat my words on this but I just dont quite get it....

      Delete
    3. ...also anyone else find it cheesy and self-satisfying to serve star wars themed food for cast and executives for an alledged announcement celebration? that seems like that would be better suited for theme park patrons or children... maybe... I don't know.

    1. My thoughts exactly.

  17. I thought of something that changed my apprehension about JJ and this movie. You know how movies generally have a three act structure? The opening act typically starts with adventure and excitement, while the second act settles down into the meat of the story. Well, the same could apply to this new trilogy as a whole. The first episode needs precisely the kind of energy JJ possess in order to get the series off to a start. Then, a director with a different pace can be brought on for the next film. The director of the third act would then bring all of these elements together into a climactic end with a sense of closure.

    4. I don't recall return of the jedi or empire strikes back starting with a big action sequence.

      And yet, Revenge of the Sith DID.

      Delete
    5. return of the jedi had a really good sense of closure. The empire was finished. Anakin balanced the Force (and yes guys, he did.) Lucas meant for the series to end at that point. He never had plans to film 7-9, so that was that. I hope episodes 7-9 won't seem like an afterthought.

      Delete
  18. "The general press is not invited to this event as it’s meant only for high level Disney executives, George Lucas, and certain key members of the original Star Wars cast. As the press isn’t meant to know about this, when a Star Wars fan site emails Lucasfilm asking about it they’re going to deny it. Either they’re denying it exists to avoid press inquiries about a secret gathering, or they flat out don’t know about it as it’s not their job to know about this specific “event”. Ask yourself this. Why would George Lucas, who is officially retired from Star Wars, be attending a Star Wars themed meal with very high-level Disney execs and important members of the original trilogy cast? Why would that be going on if it had nothing to do with Episode VII? This definitely isn’t some kind of meeting about toys or the Rebels series."

  23. If this event is in Florida, then I think we get no EP7 news. If it's in California, we may get something. Isn't Harrison shooting a movie in the UK or something? I don't see Alan Horn going to FL and then the UK.

    ReplyDelete
  24. George might show up to cut the ribbon on the new SW merry-go-round at Disneyworld or something. Without a budget determined for EP 7, can they possibly start shooting in May? Also, no lead actor yet, obviously that is the biggest problem. And apparently the script is still being revised.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Executive Events aren't held on park grounds (laughs) They have 'executive' facilities at Disney headquarter offices.

    My guess is the same kind of sponsor marketing economics that high view traffic YouTube posters receive are now being used by movie studios to lure public attention away from the inner workings of high profile productions like these....in a sense by paying off mainstream bloggers to essentially lie about said 'events'.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It looks like this morning's happening is something to do with this:

    1. While nothing is certain here, that event doesn't occur on Thursday. So, this is probably something else. The above leaks may not be related to EpVII at all, or the alleged secret breakfast meeting. Could be from some other event. I hope it's the secret meeting, and that this means we'll have some news soon, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

  27. I wonder if they are doing the breakfast at the SCI-FI THEATRE (with a movie screen) so that they can show 2nd unit film or possibly a TEASER TRAILER. Trailer I hope!!~!

  28. Firstly, Happy Bday Viral. Love the site. Secondly, we are not getting an announcement at this breakfast. lastly, Alan Horn is a Bullshitter and a scumbag.

    3. Raw, they also announced that SW7 would be released Summer 2015 and then they CHANGED that and now it's December 18. I don't believe announcements are set in stone.

      Also, you did not answer my questions. And don't call me naïve, Junior.

  34. If they had the lead actor, there would be some kind of finalist list, like a top 5. That always happens. There is like a Top 5 contenders list, and then one of those guys gets it.

    5. These photos are BS... 100% unadulterated BS!. They were taken at the Sci Fi Dine in Theater at Disney Studios in Orlando. Formally Disney/MGM studios. I would say these photos are at least 10 years old as the guy in the blue shirt with his back to us is wearing a Disney pager on his right hip. This is the old text system Disney managers used before cell phones became prevalent. I know as I used to work for Disney and I had to carry one of these for a short time.

    8. The guy in the blue shirt with his back to us is wearing what looks like a pager on his right hip. On his left he has what looks like a cell phone, but it looks more like a flip phone circa 2004-06. I left Disney in July of 2000, and I had to carry a similar device for a short period of time. It's not a phone, but rather an "instant text message device". The idea is for managers and supervisors to be contacted directly without having to alert the guest to problems. It's all about "maintaining the magic" even when the real world would creep in.

      It's also obvious that the photos were taken at the Sci Fi dine in theater in Orlando, and the breakfast mentioned was in California. So these photos are not from "The Breakfast".

    3. Greedo Jr in Ugg boots... Lulz!

      Delete
    4. Let's get this straight. Han DID NOT SHOOT FIRST. Han is the ONLY one who shot. Period.

      Delete
    5. George Lucas said this in a 2012 interview with The Hollywood Reporter: "The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down."

      I agree that the 1977 original release is the best, however, George does what he wants. The point is: Greedo is dead and Han killed him.

      Harrison Ford, was also asked in a Reddit AMA, "Hi Mr, Ford. I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?"; he responded: "I don't know and I don't care." - Ditto that... :)

      Delete
    6. Reminds me of: "What are you, son? Ignorant or apathetic?" "I don't know and I don't care."

      Delete
    7. Harrison Ford has always held himself aloof from Star Wars fandom, right? (Let us remember for a moment that "fan" is short for "fanatic".) In the original script and the original movie, Han was indeed the only one who shot. He DID gun down Greedo in cold blood. Later Lucas had second thoughts about this, and tried to alter the scene so it became an act of self-defence. The result looks somewhat clumsy, but here we are.

      So what "really" happened? It is like asking whether or not Luke "really" gave out a scream when he let himself fall in Cloud City. In the original release he fell in silence, then there was a version where he screamed, more recently he has (thankfully) gone back to being silent. Technically, each version takes place in its own separate universe, I guess. Don't obsess about it.

  39. My friend Kristen works at dining services at Disney and she says it's not nearly as big of an event as people are making it out to be — BUT there is something going on and it has to do with a few of the new cast members meeting some of Disney's "higher up". She managed to find out one of the new cast members is a relatively unknown actor starting out named Dan Chilvers. Here's who he is.

  40. I doubt that this breakfast didn't happen, I just wonder why or what context the whole thing is as it all seems very odd and mysterious. makingstarwars.net claimed they have multiple sources and are close friends with one of them so I doubt the sources would all lie about it. Then they say they've heard lots of people talk about it but don't want to release their names because of privacy. and why would makingstarwars.net make this up themselves? A lot of these sites are flooded with rumours but only post the ones with confidence. They wouldn't damage their reputation because they just fancied lieing to their key audience would they. And in regards to the poor picture quality, my phone is far worse even with decent lighting conditions, so I don't know why that's some sort of big deal. If it's true that Lucas, high Disney execs, and original cast members were in attendance at the breakfast and at the event, plus with Lucasfilm having to deny it, and the press not being involved, then it's clear it's all hush-hush business. The question is what and why

  41. Thanks for all the wishes guys. I feel really great right now. The kid is already asleep and with a glass of cognac I'm reading your comments and waiting for something official. I'm not sure if we'll be getting anything today. Actually I'm starting to believe that we will be getting some news when we expect them the least. I received some more tips but they are about the upcoming Episode 7 toys and Lily Collins' involvement with the movies. I'll probably post that tomorrow.

  57. I don't see what the issue would be with Boba Fett being a hero of a film yet maintaining his menacing character. He's not really an "evil" character anyways, just morally ambiguous. He's an opportunist. If a show about a bounty hunter named Dog can be mildly successful in the U.S. than Boba has got this in the bag. I'm excited they are enthusiastic about his character. Can't wait for further news!

    1. Only if they stick with the EU warrior version and not the pussy-fied version from The Clone Wars.

  59. To borrow a theme from comedian Kat Williams, there are two types of fans in this world: Real Fans, and Btch Fans.

    Allow me to elaborate.

    A Real Fan anticipates but waits it out.

    A Btch Fan logs into blogs seeking scraps of information before, during and after production.

    Ar Real Fan saves all judgement until the film makers have done their job.

    A Btch Fan constantly finds flaws and issues when what he learns doesn't meet his expectations.

    A Real Fan shows up on opening day, puts down his cash, and watches his movie.

    There's also a sexual parallel here, not that any of you Btch Fans would get it.

    1. So then, you're a btch fan, because for 15 years you've moaned and complained about Jar jar and the 5 second scene on midichlorians.

    2. I call a Btch Fan an E/U Fan.

    3. So a real fan should probably avoid this site then. When you see rumors and information you're bound to form some sort of opinion whether you admit it or not. Coming on this site and putting down others for voicing their opinions really just speaks to insecurity.

  60. make him like Clint Eastwood in the good the bad and the ugly. He was somewhat modeled after Clint I thought I heard anyway. And he is sort of a morally grey hero-villian. I don't think it should be hard! only hard part would be making it kid friendly.

  61. If you want Fett to be a hero evil scary protagonist, he has to first earn it back because when last we saw him, he was screaming like a wimpy coward. He first must escape the sarclacc and look dominate and unaffected by doing it maybe he learns a life lesson so that he doesn't act so overconfident in the future. Then put him in a situation where in order to make a few bucks, he has to take down then entire Hutt crime syndicate and he does with only a few words. Also they could offset his tough quiet demeanor with a mouthy side kick or contagonist like Tuco the Ugly. My point is this should not be very hard to figure out.

  62. I don't think they should be endorsing 'evil heroes'- don't like that whole trend, to be honest..

    1. Me neither. Star Wars is an old-fashioned kind of style, with modern SFX. The heroes should always be the good guys and girls, and the bad guys largely squarely irredeemable. Boba Fett was designed to be a supporting character for the chief villains, and stripped of them, he's nothing more than a goon in a battlesuit. Fetishising him skews the moral compass to a grey and distasteful area. He's a bounty-hunter, certainly, but he's also a murderer and mercenary, and these sides of his character can't be whitewashed. The same reasons why I'd hate to see a Darth Vader film. Once villains become morally ambiguous, they are diminished and less iconic.

  64. Why does everything always have to be black or white, good or evil? People aren't always as easy to define as that. Sometimes there is a grey area.

    1. It doesn't always have to be black and white but it's the easiest story to tell and people easily connect to it. Using shades of gray is fine provided that extra care is taken. That's likely why we had the rumored conversations with the Disney execs wondering how they could position Fett as a "hero" while having him retain his mystique.

  65. If Disney thinks Fett is 'evil', then they don't understand the character at all. He is simply a gun for hire. He has no particular allegiance, beyond his current employment.

    1. I agree. It'd be fairly easy to give him a 'protagonistic' feel as the primary character in a spinoff film, if they just focused on his being the most feard bounty hunter in the galaxy and the jobs he accomplished to earn that title.
      I think the reason why they believe him to be menacing is because he's directly associated with the 'bad crowd' in Star Wars; Jabba's palace crew.

    2. I wonder if they would keep his helmet on for the entire duration of any spin-off movie, as if the helmet somehow IS his established "face" (compare Vader's mask), or if they would bring in Temura whatshisname to play the unmasked Fett.

    3. The Wookie Pelts hanging on Fett are a dead give away that the character is evil

  66. That is stupid. Disney confirmed that characters from Star wars main movies will not have spin-off movies.

    I really hate idea of Star Wars spin-off movies. That will destroy Star wars.

    They should stick with Star Wars main movies.

  67. I dont understand why its so hard for them to figure out how to make Boba a hero and keep him menacing....Freddy kreuger is a perfect example of the villian being the hero and those movies were written by retards. Maybe they should get in touch with Bob Shay...
