There will be no “Star Wars” news or panel of any kind from Comic-Con. Disney did confirm, however, that “Star Wars Episode VII” will have a “presence” at D23, which happens Aug. 9-11. People are expecting casting announcements, including the much rumored return of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. No concrete details have been released but the J.J. Abrams directed film will begin production in early 2014 so news has to come soon.
