Lucasfilm Denies Report Of Episode VII Disney Executive Breakfast
Posted by Eric on April 21, 2014 at 09:40 PM CST |
Two days ago, the website MakingStarWars.net posted a tantalizing story. According to one of their reporters, top Disney executives were set to meet on Thursday, April 24 for a VIP event including a Star Wars-themed breakfast. Also attending the event, which was said to involve about 100 people, were George Lucas and "classic Star Wars film actors."

Tonight, a Lucasfilm spokesperson has categorically denied that this event is taking place.

The MakingStarWars.net post includes images of the Star Wars-themed menu, which features items such as "Anchorhead Appetizer: Greek Yogurt Parfait." If I were to guess, I would say that this is just the menu for the Star Wars Weekends Character Dining experience mentioned on Disney's website. The site mentions a "Star Wars Dine-In Galactic Breakfast! at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant" from May 4 to June 15. That roughly syncs with the MakingStarWars.net report; their source claims that the meal will start "May 4th, and be used for 54 consecutive days afterward." May 4 to June 15 is only 42 days, not 54, but this seems likely the most likely explanation for the mix-up.

Since the breakfast report first hit the Internet, many fans have been fervently hoping that a VIP event with George Lucas, top Disney executives, and Star Wars actors would be timed to coincide with a major announcement about Star Wars Episode VII. However, to reiterate, Lucasfilm has unequivocally denied the existence of such an event.
