Punked: No Star Wars news out of Disney tonight

Disney's Hollywood Studios We had a minor explosion on Twitter tonight as a few tweets sparked rumors that Bob Iger and George Lucas were on hand at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a ‘major’ Star Wars announcement. And thus Disney and Star Wars fans began using the hashtag #Igerwatch for their guesses and hopes…

Of course, TFN contacted Lucasfilm, who denied the whole thing. And so it was. The projected time of 9:45 p.m. came and went and the fireworks were strictly localized. Just another fun night on the internet!

Now our only hope for a big event-driven Star Wars announcement today is on the west coast, as the later screenings of Return of the Jedi at Entertainment Weekly’s CapeTown Film Festival commence. StarWars.com has already posted one report from Hollywood

Or, of course, there may be no announcement at all. Who knows? Not me, clearly. At least we’ll have something more than puns for the next Twitter roundup, though.

    Can’t help but think we are circling dangerously close to a lesson in all this, but damned if I can put my finger on it.
