Regal Entertainment Group has announced that “Star Wars” fans will be among the first to see the first trailer for J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” which will debut this Friday in the United States in a select group of theaters. Just nine to be exact.

These nine theaters will play the trailer before EVERY movie the weekend of November 28th. Disney has not officially commented on the trailer’s release so far, so there’s no word as to when the trailer will hit other cinemas or debut online. Don’t be surprised if it’s very soon afterwards.
Update: Abrams himself has confirmed the news, and indicates the trailer is 88 seconds long.
