The next Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer is confirmed to premiere on Monday, October 21.
Today, Good Morning America’s Tony Morrison revealed on Twitter that the new Star Wars 9 trailer will debut during the Monday Night Football broadcast on October 21. Take a look at his post in the space below:
To this point, the studio has run one of their trademark measured marketing campaigns, unveiling just enough materials to pique interest without revealing too much of the story. Even though there are only about two months remaining until Star Wars 9 hits theaters, many of the plot details have been kept under wraps to this point. In classic Star Wars fashion, the teasers seen so far have provided fodder for theorizing, rather than answering burning questions.
In all likelihood, Lucasfilm is going to keep all of Star Wars 9’s most prominent twists and turns close to the chest until December. At the same time, the promotional blitz needs to kick-off as we enter the homestretch before the film’s premiere. Earlier this month, the first wave of tie-in merchandise hit store shelves during Triple Force Friday, but what fans really want to see is a new trailer. Recently, there had been multiple rumors about when a fresh preview would arrive, and now Disney’s gone ahead and confirmed the date.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film arrives on Dec. 20.
