In the wake of last week’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer, the third official one for the film to date, everyone’s keen to finally get to see what director J.J. Abrams has done with the newest chapter in the saga of a galaxy far, far away.
Though that trailer was thought to be the last one before release, studios do have a habit lately of pushing out previews in the two weeks or so before a film opens to fire up more interest. That won’t be the case with ‘Force’ though as Abrams has confirmed to Extra this week there’ll be no more trailers: “The next thing is really going to be the movie. Well, there’ll be commercials, but no more trailers.”
Abrams was also asked about the theories flying around that, due to his absence in the trailers, the film will boast an evil version of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Abrams easily avoided answering that one, but is a fan of the way fans are coming up with elaborate theories:
“I saw that, too [the theory of Luke going to the Dark Side]. I’m always interested in seeing people’s theories. What’ll be cool [is] when people finally see the movie and see what it really is. Hopefully some people will say, ‘I was right!’ Other people will be like, ‘Ah-rah!’ You want people to be debating things even before the movie comes out. It’s a dream!”
