Rumor: New Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer & poster to debut next week

04.06.2015

Back in December, the rumor that the full trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS would debut in front of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON gained creedence around the internet. It made perfect sense since the AVENGERS sequel would be Disney's highest profile release at the beginning of Summer and would cater to the same audience anticipating J.J. Abrams' scifi sequel. Now, new rumors suggest we could see the new trailer even sooner.

Collider reports that their sources have the first poster and full trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS debuting next week at STAR WARS Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, California. The STAR WARS convention caters to fans of George Lucas' franchise in a way that could never be matched by San Diego Comic Con. The timing of the convention being just a few weeks prior to the May 1st premiere of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON also puts the timing right on target.

The question now becomes whether the trailer will be released to the general public. Like the BATMAN V SUPERMAN and first AGE OF ULTRON teasers, there is a chance Disney could elect to build buzz out of the weekl long STAR WARS Celebration next week and debut the full trailer with AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. I would anticipate a huge number of bootleg copies of the trailer and poster to hit online if they decide to wait, but it would definitely inflate the already massive expected box office for the Marvel film when it opens. At the very least, we have just weeks away before we get a look at new footage from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

STAR WARS Celebration 2015 takes place April 16-19 with J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and more in attendance. STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens on December 18, 2015.

I'm strong willed. Won't be seeing the trailer until I'm in the theater for Ultron.

One of the things I loved about the trailers for all the prequels were that they only contained music from John Williams' scores for the other Star Wars films. I'm really hoping they continue that trend. That's really the only way to do it proper, the usual trailer music just doesn't cut it for Star Wars.

All it needs is a couple of seconds of Luke with a beard looking serious, maybe Leia looking Game Of Thrones Regal, and Han sitting on a porch drinking beer and grumbling about kids these days.

If true, Disney is making a mistake not packaging this with Avengers: AOU

We've waited this long. Disney should release the trailer for The Force Awakens in theaters only for the first week packaged with Avengers: AOU. Why not add an extra piece of value to the already huge tentpole release of Avengers. People may not really need any more incentive but it makes the experience an even bigger event. If people bootleg the trailer, who cares, its gonna look like shit compared to seeing it in theaters or waiting til the next week to see it in HD online.

Nah. No matter where it's released, the first time you see it will probably be on YouTube anyways. The teaser made that clear. Sticking it in front of another movie doesn't matter like it used to.

Been eagerly waiting for a poster to be released!

Finally word about the teaser poster! Can't wait for the new trailer but the poster is a must have!
FYI: for those of you wondering if Drew Struzan will be doing the poster, don't be disappointed if the teaser poster is not done by Drew. I would expect him to do the final poster, some times he doesn't do both the teaser and final poster for Star Wars.

I never tire of watching that teaser.

That truly was a magnificent teaser in every sense of the word.
Just hope that all future trailers retain the mystery and keep actual story to a minimum. Still 8 months till it comes out, lets not peak too soon.
