Possibly, the LFL guy keeps kinda "vaguely" saying no.

I doubt it will be. Mainly because I guess they already have all those on the youtube channel. But those three they did not.

It's weird. 20 years ago I was frothing at the mouth for seeing that moment of Anakin and Obi-Wan fighting near a volcano (as described in the ROTJ novelization).

Now we're on the cusp of an announcement for a new trilogy with the original core of characters. Amazing. I spent so much time imaging what an episodes 7-9 trilogy would look like, and like many SW fans Zahn's trilogy was it. Still, I remember thinking it would be awesome to bring back Hamill, Fisher, Ford, and others when they were older sometime after the announced prequel trilogy was done.

Ok, now I REALLY think that something big is coming next Wednesday. They've rereleased all three OT trailers in as many weeks. Also, isn't next Wednesday (Oct 30) the one year anniversary of Disney buying Lucasfilms? This can't be coincidence.

I'm slightly more optimistic, but again that LFL guy kinda gave a vague "no" but hard to tell. I'd say I'm more optimistic now. I think regardless we are getting news soon, but the announcement trailer I'm still being cautious about.

The big problem that is eating away with me, is no big news source is talking about this. Usually even with things that are more rumor based sites like Jedinews, TheForce.net /film and many others will kinda report more on it. It makes me wonder if we are going more so in the speculation department too far with the trailers or the idea that there will be one. It's a foggy time right now that's for sure. Part of me says, looks that way, but compared to so many other films in the past usually things like this turn out to be nothing.

It's not only that they uploaded 3 videos of the original series every Wednesday in a pattern that could be construed as leading up to the one year anniversary of the announcement of the Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm/Star Wars, it's that each video trailer was deliberately marked as a "teaser". So on three levels, one being the release pattern and timing, two being the material (original trilogy), and three being three "teasers", I think it's a bit too cutesy/annoying to do that and have no follow up on the 30th if that's what ends up happening. They know that it's only a very small segment of the potential audience that's really paying attention to these things at this point. Even this subforum doesn't seem to get much traffic.

In July 2012, they uploaded the non-teaser trailers to all three OT movies on the same day:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ734NWnAHA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNwNXF9Y6kY
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16YLjTkK5jE

So in 6 days, we're getting some news or a ha-ha/nothing.

The suspense is killing me. As for the traffic in this subsection, I really hope it picks up and something like a teaser on the 30th would most certainly help.

I think it's quiet right now because we quite literally have very little to go on, so once we start getting more concrete info the traffic should go up quite a bit.

I found a picture on twitter of Mark Hamill. He's filming a movie in London right now apparently. So he's not being kept in a locked shed with Michael Arndt. Mystery solved.

Is that a stubble? If I get stubbled Luke and stubbled Batman in 2015, I'll be a happy man.

Finally! Good find.

It's hard to tell the difference of his weight since July, due to the filter and it's not being whole body shot. Like the stubble though.

My instinct is to say he's looking a bit better, but yeah, it could just be the photo.

Somebody call me when that stubble turns into a full-fledged beard.

It's definitely hard to tell, but I don't know, I think he looks better.

I assume the latter is from some time ago? If so, he does look better. If he gets even better, a few Jedi robes will do the trick nicely.

I want to be excited, but a part of me feels that releasing something on the anniversary of the buyout seems more like a fan speculation than practical reality. To me, a studio would release something whenever they feel they can release it.

Or Disney just thinks differently, I don't know. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to Wednesday. Because dammit, I want something.

It was from Comic-Con.

I'm personally not too worried about his appearance. Even if he wasn't losing weight, with the proper application of makeup, prosthetics, costuming, lighting, etc. it wouldn't really be a problem I don't think.

It doesn't matter to me if Mark isn't in great shape, as long as he's not overweight. I doubt Luke will have a massively active role in the films, so it won't detrimental in that way, and in any case, they could body double like Christopher Lee.

Yep, they went through this massive move a few months back. But it all works well now.

I love TFN. It's SW fandom in full action (for better or worse lol). It's definitely not worse than certain boards here (Batboards, i'm looking at you).

I'm not expecting any trailers or videos for next week, just a simple announcement with title, cast, release date and maybe a hint of more info regarding the plot.

Pete Sciretta of /Film just confirmed on Twitter that the teaser re-releases aren't leading up to something VII-related.
