Right now, the title of "Star Wars: Episode VII" is ... "To Be Determined." But if rumors hold true, Disney may announce the title, as well as some of the cast, sometime in the next few days.
Ali Arikan, the film critic for Dipnot TV, posted a tantalizing "Star Wars" rumor on Twitter yesterday:
So here's what I'm hearing about Episode VII. Casting and title announcements are imminent, possibly today or tomorrow. But that's not all.- Ali Arikan (@aliarikan) October 8, 2013
As ComicBook.com pointed out, Arikan has a history of being right about "Star Wars" news.
Arikan followed up that tweet with another one saying that the announcement would be in the form of a teaser trailer and feature Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. He also backed up his claim by noting that his source was the same one who told him that Ewan McGregor would be returning to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi and that Saoirse Ronan had auditioned for the film, which is being directed by J.J. Abrams.
With New York Comic Con taking place this weekend, the timing seems to work out.
Still, there are so many "Star Wars" rumors floating around, including that Benedict Cumberbatch may join the cast and that there might be a Wookiee. We'll take it all with a big grain of salt, but we'll keep our eyes peeled ...
