Nerds of the world, rejoice! It’s your day!

Yes, it is Star Wars Day around the world (because "May the 4th be with you"…get it?), and as such we’ve been expecting some nuggets to drop out of George Lucas, Disney, and co.’s basket to satiate the Star Wars fans everywhere looking for something, anything new.

Well, we’ve got exciting news: something new has already dropped.

Will there be more coming today, perhaps regarding Episode VII? We certainly hope so, and promise to bring you any news as soon as we have it.
