After the smashing success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, fans are understandably beyond eager to catch their first glimpse of the recently titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Despite the questionable moniker, it’s many people’s most anticipated film of the year and with good reason. However, we still haven’t seen any footage at all from the upcoming Rian Johnson-helmed blockbuster, and we may not for some time.
A few days ago, rumors started to pop up which pointed to Disney dropping the first trailer on us during the Super Bowl this weekend. As it turns out, however, there’s no truth to that. There was also speculation that a teaser could be attached to Beauty and the Beast next month, but again, it doesn’t seem like that will happen, either. Instead, the very first footage from The Last Jedi will be shown off this April, as Kathleen Kennedy hinted at not too long ago.
The Lucasfilm president said that the marketing campaign would begin in the spring and now, SWNN is reporting that the first trailer is currently being put together with the goal to have it debut at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this April. According to them, it’s going to be more of a behind-the-scenes reel, kind of like what we saw with the previous two films. Following that, we’ll get the first proper teaser later on during the event, likely to close it out.
Keep in mind, none of this has been confirmed by Disney just yet, but given what we’ve seen with The Force Awakens and Rogue One, it makes sense. Not to mention that, as we said before, Kennedy pegged spring as for when the promotion would start. While another two months or so may seem like a long wait for the first footage from The Last Jedi, it’s understandable why the studio’s in no hurry to release it. It’s not like they need to build hype or anything, right?
We expect to hear more about Disney’s plans for Star Wars Celebration over the coming months, but in the meantime, head on down to the comments section and let us know what you’re hoping to see in the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
