‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Will Not Show a New Trailer or Footage at Comic-Con 2015
Even though Marvel is abstaining from Comic-Con this year, we’ve still had plenty to be excited about — specifically, Lucasfilm is bringing Star Wars: The Force Awakens to the convention later this week. That’s the good news. Here’s the bad news: they will not be showing any new footage or a new trailer for the upcoming installment in the classic franchise. Sorry.
Although it has not been confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney directly, EW reports from reliable sources that the studios will not be revealing any new footage of any kind at Comic-Con this year. So when can you see new footage from The Force Awakens? It appears that the next trailer will hit sometime this fall, but it’s unclear to which film the trailer will be attached. Feel free to speculate wildly, but if it’s the final trailer, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it attached to Disney and Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, which hits theaters about a month before The Force Awakens and is their only new release this fall.
So, what will we actually see during the panel for The Force Awakens? Here’s what EW offers:
…the Comic-Con panel will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the highly secretive film, which was completely locked down to press during production. … Director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy are already confirmed as part of the panel, which will be moderated by Nerdist impresario and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick. Although EW hasn’t learned just which of the cast members will be joining them, our spies say there will be several actors who haven’t yet spoken publicly about their roles venturing onstage in Hall H.
And don’t be too disheartened — Lucasfilm will still have plenty of delightful surprises up their sleeve, likely including updates on Star Wars: Rogue One.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.
