Yeah, I know, this is kind of a “no, duh” piece of news. While the film is set to hit theaters this coming December, legit details from Lucasfilm itself are as sparse as can be. All we’ve managed to survive on for months or the crumbled up rumors that fall beneath the proverbial cracks over at the studio, with little indication that said rumors actual resemble anything factual in content.
And it’s not that surprising. Disney is busy pushing their big Marvel movies in the first half of the year, and with Star Wars being the big brand name it is, why bother pushing it at all until the summer? Well, there’s just one reason: Star Wars Celebration. This bad boy is headed to Chicago this coming April, and word has it that it’s around that time we’ll be getting a title reveal and our first trailer.
Now, according to The Star Wars Show, the film is getting its own panel, where director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy will be at the event, which will take place on Friday, April 12. While the Star Wars Show didn’t state what the content would entail, it seems safe to assume that the aforementioned trailer and title reveal will go down around then, which will also likely be pushed to the internet immediately after. But, of course, we did touch on that yesterday.
In addition to this, there will also be a panel for Galaxy’s Edge, the latest attraction at Disney theme parks on Saturday, April 13th, where Imagineers will share stories about what it took to bring the world to life.
