Club Jade noticed
that the official schedule for this month's D23 Expo lists Lucasfilm as one of the participants in the expo's live-action entertainment panel, which takes place from 10:30am to 12:30pm PT (1:30pm to 3:30pm ET) on Saturday, August 10th.
Let the Adventures Begin: Live Action at The Walt Disney Studios
Go behind the scenes at The Walt Disney Studios with this revealing look at our upcoming roster of live-action adventures from Disney, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. Fans will enjoy exclusive video clips, filmmaker discussions, and star appearances at this session hosted by Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn, Disney Live Action Production President Sean Bailey, and Marvel Studios President and Producer Kevin Feige. With Marvel?s Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Disney?s Maleficent, Saving Mr. Banks, Tomorrowland, and Muppets Most Wanted, coming down the pike, make sure to claim your spot for the total package?surprises included! Cell phones, cameras, and all recording devices will be checked for this presentation.
This isn't particularly surprising. With the Sequel Trilogy and at least two spin-off movies on the way, it would be more surprising if Lucasfilm weren't
included in this panel in at least some capacity. Don't cross your fingers for any big Episode VII announcements, though. Lucasfilm will probably just stick to the standard "we're hard at work on the exciting first sequel in the Star Wars
film saga" line.
