It is possible that they could choose to build Star Wars land there but most think the more likely location for that expansion will be on the left hand side of the park starting where Star Tours is now and extending back towards where Muppets/Streets of America is

If that happens Muppets might get pushed to the other side of the park where the Animation Building is and finally get their "land" that was planned but never built around there current location

So basically you walk in/down Hollywood Blvd towards the Great Movie Ride (which will prob be scrapped or replaced at some point), on the right would be Sunset Blvd leading you down to Tower of Terror and RockNRoller Coaster, as you get to the hub to you left will be Lucas Land with the Indy show and Star Wars, to the right will be Muppets/Little Mermaid/Disney Jr/etc, and in front (kinda, more to the side) will be Pixar land

of course this is all rumors and hearsay with prob some arm-chair imagineering thrown in but for sure the Studios will be getting a LARGE influx of capital improvements and will be a totally different place in 10 years (but first they gotta get Avatar-land and all the new stuff at AK built before they can push hard with the big stuff at DHS)

I would really suggest listening to "The Unofficial Guide's Disney Dish with Jim Hill" podcast as it has a lot of good info and good for a laugh or too
