Gotta love the power of a massive multimedia conglomerate like Disney!
For better or worse, the House of Mouse has a stronghold on everyone’s childhood. From Marvel to Star Wars and Pixar, there’s little doubt they have a monopoly on everything mainstream audiences hold dear. Luckily for us, as of this writing, they seem to be doing a service to these properties. All three have strong brand recognition, and all three still evoke happy emotions from most viewers.
Now, a report from trusted site Star Wars News Net indicates that Disney will continue to capitalize on the synergy between their properties. During the Kino Expo International, held in St. Petersburg, it was announced that the final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be attached to the film Doctor Strange upon its October 28 release in Russia.
So what does this mean for us? While it wasn’t confirmed, we can assume that this means the final trailer will hit around the same time in the U.S.
In the age of the internet, nothing keeps under wraps for very long, and should they attach a new trailer to Doctor Strange in Russia, there’s a good chance Disney will bite the bullet and release that trailer, as well as a domestic trailer either prior to that October 28 release date, or on the same day.
Given that the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit the web on October 19, 2015, it makes sense they’d move forward with a similar time table.
What do you think? Does it make sense for Disney to release a final Rogue One trailer in late October, or is that too early, given all that’s coming out late in the year? Let us know your thoughts down below!
