After last week’s surprise reveal of the official title for Star Wars Episode VIII, fans have been clamoring for more information. Thanks to the folks over at Star Wars News Net, we might have an idea of when we’ll see an official first trailer.
The outlet has contacted their sources, and they’re hearing that Star Wars Celebration, which takes place in April, will likely be the place for The Last Jedi footage to debut.
“With this in mind we contacted one of our sources who shared with us an interesting tidbit. According to him, right now they are hard at work on a new Behind the Scenes reel for The Last Jedi, which will be the first footage that we will see from the movie. This means that there will be no teaser trailer before Celebration. All rumors on the web with earlier dates are not accurate, as are the reports with teaser descriptions. While a BTS reel premiering during Celebration is not surprising at all, since they did pretty much the same for The Force Awakens and Rogue One, it is interesting that we will be heading into Celebration without any TLJ footage released before. That is of course if we don’t count the brief start of production video that Lucasfilm released back in February.”
Additionally, they state there will be no teaser attached to the Superbowl, which goes along with what Pablo Hidalgo has stated.
With that quote in mind, when do you think we’ll see footage of The Last Jedi? Kathleen Kennedy said the first footage will premiere in Spring, which follows the April date of Star Wars Celebration.
If this rumor is indeed correct, you can expect to see a trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi between April 13-16.
The Last Jedi lands in theaters on December 15, 2017.
