Seriously, you guys--stop asking if he's going to play Grand Admiral Thrawn in "Star Wars: Episode VII"--he's obviously going to be some kind of Sith lord.

Disney promised no big news at this year's D23 Expo, and the company kept their word, revealing nothing concrete--but man, did they tease fans with the possibility of exhibits and attractions based on the "Star Wars" universe coming to their theme parks.

"Start anew, stick to the story and don’t care about the merchandising."

By Steven Smith

They tell me to have faith. And by “they” I mean “them” and I by “them” I mean the same folks who promised me the prequels would be awesome.  You know these folks – delusional, hopeful, steeped in the Lucas lore yet probably didn’t read "Han Solo and the Lost Legacy".  The same people who didn’t blink at the idea of midichlorians and justified Jar Jar Binks screw up in the Senate as reason for his existence.  These people are wrong and will be again.  Or will they?

Ever since the announcement that Disney nabbed Lucasfilm we've been chomping at the bit for any news about casting in Episodes VII, VIII and IX -- and well, thanks to this leaked vid from Screen Junkies it looks like we've finally got an idea of the direction Disney will take "Star Wars".  And I for one couldn't be more excited.

The Tenth Doctor is back -- well, sort of. Former "Doctor Who" star David Tennant is lending his voice to the Cartoon Network hit "Star Wars: Clone Wars"! He will be playing a droid named Huyang, in an episode airing Nov. 10th called "A Test Of Strength."

The character is described as one who will greatly impact the lives of a group of young Jedi who were just setting out to create their own lightsabers in the previous episode. Read More...

We've been massively speculating about the recent acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney, and how that might play out for "Star Wars Episode VII" and beyond. Well, the first fruit of that collaboration is showing up this week... But it's not where you'd expect. Not a new Star Wars movie, or comic, or book... It's C-3P0 and R2-D2 showing up on Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm": Read More...

Look, I feel this is inevitable...with Disney/Star Wars dominating the current newscycle like a giant rampaging Wampa, the heat is on Warner Bros. to counter with some kick-ass "Justice League" movie news or something of that magnitude. "Star Wars Episode VII" is going head-to-head with the "JL" film, fer heaven's sake! So is "Avengers," but that's Marvel/Disney...which brings on even MORE pressure for that jaw-dropping, pants-wetting news. (Read more about the "Justice League" movie at MTV Splashpage)

Then again, it may not be about "Justice League" at all. Maybe the WB will acquire their own cool multi-billion dollar franchise and tell the world about it. Here's my completely baseless guesses, once again donning my Sally Speculator cap of pure guessery: Read More...

With the explosive news concerning yesterday's Disney/Lucasfilm deal PLUS the announcement of "Star Wars Episode VII," the amount of related content coming through the interwebs might be enough to make even a seasoned Geek overwhelmed. Helpfully, we've aggregated some of the most interesting, informative, inspirational, and on occasion downright infuriating stories:

HOW NERD-WORTHY MIGHT THIS NEWS BE?

MTV Movies Blog places the Disney/Star Wars news in context of other Great Moments in Geek History -- as they put it, how the event registers on the "Nerd Richter Scale." Will it register higher or lower than Peter Jackson directing "The Hobbit"? Find out at the link! Read More...
