'Orange Harvest' Revealed At D23

By: Benjamin Hart

Interesting news is coming out of Disney's D23 Expo, which is going on now in Anaheim, California. The Disney Parks & Resorts pavilion has revealed an intriguing collection of crates adorned with bold "Orange Harvest: Speculation Beyond Imagination" stamps. Obviously, this is a Star Wars reference, being that Return Of The Jedi was referred to as "Blue Harvest" during it's production. To further the Star Wars theme, one box has an Astromech Droid shaped cut out on it's side, and other boxes are labeled to contain Lightsabers, Bantha Milk & Rancor food. No doubt this is a big clue as to what we can expect to see announced at the convention. It's been rumored for some time now that a "Star Wars Land" expansion is in development at the Disney parks, and Disney recently confirmed that D23 would feature some Star Wars teases. Considering that these crates are addressed to the Disney imagineers means that "Orange Harvest" is most likely a Star Wars themed expansion of Disneyland and/or Disney World.

Also, just today Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that they aren't planning to talk about Episode VII at D23; “We’re speechless, at least we’re going to be somewhat speechless at this expo.... Trust me. It’s going to be fantastic. Come on. Star Wars and Disney together. How could it not be fantastic?”
