Yes we’ve had the title reveal, but Disney and Lucasfilm have otherwise steadfastly kept everything about Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” top secret for now.
The big question that everyone wants answered though is when will we see the first trailer? Fans speculated it would be with “Rogue One” but nope. More recently it has been tipped for the Super Bowl this Sunday, but again nope – it won’t happen.
Now, Star Wars News Net has spoken with a source and seems to have found out when we’ll first see any footage from the film – and it makes complete logical sense as they indicate it will be at Star Wars Celebration in April:
“We contacted one of our sources who shared with us an interesting tidbit. According to him, right now they are hard at work on a new Behind the Scenes reel for The Last Jedi, which will be the first footage that we will see from the movie. This means that there will be no teaser trailer before Star Wars Celebration. All rumors on the web with earlier dates are not accurate, as are the reports with teaser descriptions.”
This would also indicate an actual trailer may not come until after April. Celebration runs April 13th-16th, but if a trailer follows soon after then its logical premiere point would be attached to “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” in early May with an online debut in the days before.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is currently set for release on December 15th.
