Good Morning America offered up a tweet this evening teasing exclusive details for Star Wars: The Force Awakens tomorrow. Check local listings for air times.
Good Morning America is aired on ABC, a division of The Walt Disney Company.
UPDATE: GMA confirms the rumor that the voiceover in the teaser was indeed given by Andy Serkis and they also state the source of that other lightsaber (not the cross blade one) you hear in the trailer. Head over to ClubJade for the details, spoiler warnings apply.
The Ultimate Star Wars Die Cast Set that has shown up on DisneyStore.com recently is also being found in brick and mortar Disney Stores per this tweet from Tucson ToyHunter. This set includes the Millennium Falcon, Y-wing, Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced, 2 standard TIE Fighters, an Imperial Star Destroyer, Luke’s “Red Five” X-wing and an Exclusive Wedge Antilles “Red Two” X-wing.
This is available now, on special, for $79.95

As we prepare to gear up our coverage for this year’s SDCC we’d like to suggest that you enable notifications for your mobile devices. We will surely be bombarding our social media channels on Facebook (fb.com/yakfacecom) and Twitter (@yak_face) with news as it breaks — PRIOR to the news hitting our front page.
We are also conscience that some may not like the constant notfications as well so we suggest turning them OFF if so inclined.
Finally, if you see a story shared by us over the next few days, it is not an attempt to give preferential treatment to any one source or not give due credit were applicable.
All that said; sit back, relax, HAVE FUN and we hope you enjoy the show!

In a brief exchange I had on Twitter with Sideshow Collectibles (@CollectSideshow), they revealed that additional Star Wars Mythos statues are in development, but of course, they aren’t ready to divulge the characters quite yet.
