Not surprisingly, the most new info to come out of all of the summer conventions came from the only Star Wars dedicated convention. Star Wars Celebration Europe II.
The only Episode 7 related content that broke during the convention was that John Williams would, not all that surprisingly, be heading up the composing for the new trilogy. There were some rumblings that JJ Abrams would be bringing in Michael Giacchino to score the new films, and while that would not be a bad thing in any way, it's nice to see that we'll at least have that continuity throughout the film saga regarding the musical cues. I wouldn't count out Giacchino to be on deck for scoring duties on any of the various spin-off films.
The only other substantial information we got was from the LucasFilm Animation division. Producer of the upcoming animated series "Star Wars: Rebels" was on hand to give us the tiniest of peeks at what is in store for televised Star Wars. First off, was the logo, emblazoned in black and orange reminiscent of an X-Wing pilot's uniform:

A NEW DIRECTION FOR LUCASFILM ANIMATIONMarch 11, 2013As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming. We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.As part of this shift, we have also made some key decisions affecting Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we're continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content. In the video below, Supervising Director Dave Filoni offers a peek of what is to come in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.At Star Wars Celebration VI last year, George Lucas gave fans a glimpse at the animated comedy series Star Wars Detours from Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes. Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we've decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date.We are incredibly proud of the teams at Lucasfilm Animation for creating some of the most amazing animation ever produced for TV. Keep checking StarWars.com for new developments on these and future projects.
