George Lucas and Bob Iger are apparently at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Disney World tonight, and they're expected to make a big announcement tonight around 9:45pm.

If they're doing it from Disney, I'm guessing it's the long-rumored Star Wars Land coming to the Studios park, but who knows?

Stay tuned...

Nope, there's nothing.

UPDATE #3: A Lucasfilm spokesman just told me that there is nothing he is aware of regarding Mr. Iger and Mr. Lucas at Disney World. In light of that information, it's unlikely that an announcement is coming tonight.

Mark Hamill made a surprise appearance at the Return of the Jedi EW Cape Fest screening. Taking questions right now. He's taken one "creative meeting" over Episode VII and told them how there needs to be a good balance between practical effects and CG.

I love the notion of Hamill wanting to make sure the films are done correctly.

it's hard to tell but it looks like he lost some weight there.

Even better is that supposedly Kathleen Kennedy agreed with him.

Quote:
While he was the first to admit that any creative decisions involving the new Star Wars Trilogy won't have “Make Mark Hamill happy” as priority #1, he did say that Kennedy agreed with him and already discussed that with George Lucas, citing how Jurassic Park only had a handful of digital shots in the whole movie that are sold by blending the in with practical creatures and other cinema tricks.

Excellent, didn't know that.

He also agreed with a fan about where Luke is, aka being more about "Jedi mind-tricks than lightsaber duels". Which I think we can all agree with, though... I would love to see Grand Master Skywalker break out ol' green just once more.

As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different.”

Very encouraging to know that the script is being given the time it needs to be just right. The lessons have been learnt it seems. Tight script, outdoor locations, less CGI and more practical stuff. Thumbs up.

Looks like Star Wars games will be made by EA....I feel split about that. There are some great devs in there for sure (Bioware used to be one of my favorites but their last few games have been good but not as great as they use to be) But hopefully some of their best devs will work on it. They talked about DICE who does the great Battlefield games...I would love to see that in the Star Wars universe for sure.

It looks like DICE, Visceral, and BioWare will be working on Star Wars games. EA's best developers IMO. If we can get a Battlefield styled Battlefront or similar game and a true KOTOR III I will be very happy! But I am skeptical because EA is..well...EA.
