Is An Announcement Imminent For The Clone Wars?

So as I write this there has been no official announcement regarding season six of Star Wars The Clone Wars.  We all know that Disney bought Lucasfilm late last year and as a result we all expected The Clone Wars to jump ship from The Cartoon Network to Disney.  When The Cartoon Network last month published their TV line up for the following year The Clone Wars was missing from that line up.  I expected Disney to chip in and say they were showing season six on one of their channels but so far we've had nothing.  Yesterday I asked someone at Disney Online if they could give any information regarding the show and sadly was met with very little information. What was said was:


"Unfortunately, we do not have information on future programs until they are 
officially announced."

Now you can accuse me of clutching at straws here but that last bit intrigued me.  "...until they are officially announced."  Does that mean that an announcement is imminent regarding The Clone Wars?  If it was dead in the water for The Clone Wars wouldn't that response be different?  Yes I'm being optimistic but that one statement, to me makes me think that talks are being held.

What do you think?

  1. I'm thinking that the statement just looks like a boilerplate response. They can't talk about X until there's an official announcement that X exists.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
