Rumor: Lucasfilm Preparing Episode VII Announcements

By: Dominic Jones

Throughout the summer, it seemed that there were many missed opportunities to make big announcements regarding Star Wars Episode VII - specifically D23 Expo and San Diego Comic Con - however it seems that now Lucasfilm is preparing to start making announcements soon and often.  The good folks over at Jedi News have this report from their unnamed source:

During the summer there was a lot of tension within certain ranks at Lucasfilm, especially regarding the pressure over no news announcements and the exceptionally high levels of fan expectation. The mood is very different now. My impression is that there is clarity and relaxation over what is happening. Expect quick movement on announcements, with continual announcements timed for the rest of the year.

This is their pre-determined method on how to control the media and satisfy the thirst for information. It will be drip fed out. That's why there were no major summer announcements, as there's no need to feed the hunger quite yet.

So it sounds like we can expect to start getting announcements and keep getting announcements through the fall and early winter, right up until production gets underway and then...the madness will truly begin.

As always, this is just a rumor unless it's confirmed (or denied) by Lucasfilm or Disney.
