J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm and Disney didn’t have to give us a glimpse at Star Wars: The Force Awakens just yet. The movie is still over a year away; no one would have blamed them if we didn’t see something until six months out from release. That’s always been the schedule. But they were kind, and gave us seven scenes to dissect and discuss after almost two years of wild speculation. Now we know John Boyega’s character is a Stormtrooper, Oscar Isaac flies an X-Wing, there’s a new droid, and a bit more.
So yes, it was very kind and exciting to get a first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is the Internet, though. We’re always looking toward the next thing. We’ve seen this teaser, but when will we see a second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? Well, we just happen to know for sure.
We’ve been definitively told that another trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron when it opens in the Spring. Now, this isn’t some huge revelation. In fact, it’s pretty darn obvious when you think about it. That film, released May 1 in the US, is eight months before the Star Wars opening. It’s Disney’s second largest film of the year and the audience crossover is probably massive. Actually, it would probably be bigger news if there wasn’t a new trailer on Avengers: Age of Ultron. But there will be. Then it’ll likely play on Tomorrowland too, a few weeks later.
That we know for a fact. But will that be the second Star Wars Force Awakens trailer? Or will it be a third or fourth? Unfortunately, that we don’t know for sure. We found this interesting though:
iTunes is referring to this trailer as the “First Teaser.” It doesn’t say that on the actual trailer page, though. It only says it on the iTunes home page, as of Sunday November 30. That seems like very selective wording, but it’s possible it was not approved by Lucasfilm.
So could we see a second teaser before Age of Ultron? Well, it’s December. There’s a big Disney movie coming out in three weeks called Into The Woods, but you’d think they’d still be running this trailer at that point. Two months later, though, is the Super Bowl. Disney and that huge event have a long history. (“You’ve just won the Super Bowl where are you going?” “I’m going to Disney World!”) So I imagine there’s a chance Disney could purchase a commercial spot during that broadcast. Then, there’s Cinderella in March, another big Disney release.
The smart guess is, if we don’t see another trailer by the time Cinderella comes out, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be the second one. But anything is possible.
Do you think we’ll see a Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer before the one attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron?Cool Posts From Around the Web:
