Anyone attending Disney's D23 fan expo over the weekend probably banked on some exciting Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens news. But rather than revealing if there's any substance to the rumors surrounding Gosling and Efron, the troubling J.J. Abrams' speculation, or Chloe Grace Moretz's declaration that she wants to swing a lightsaber, Disney's Chairman Alan Horn revealed....nothing!
Check out these not-so-tantalizing Tweets:
Alan Horn is now welcoming Lucasfilm to the Disney family #D23Expo— Walt Disney Pictures (@DisneyPictures) August 10, 2013
In addition to the next chapters of the Star Wars Saga, Disney will produce standalone films derived from the Star Wars Universe. #D23Expo— Walt Disney Pictures (@DisneyPictures) August 10, 2013
No title or cast reveal, no story info?!
Horn reportedly reiterated that the movie is still set for a 2015 release (yawn!) and then said "I really wish I could tell you more. It will come soon". I get that it's still really early for them but, c'mon, I would have been fine with just a minor update. ANYTHING. Something weird is happening. Either they are pulling the secretive Abrams thing, or they really are having problems with production. What's your money on?
