Star Wars fans have been eagerly anticipating the SDCC panel for The Force Awakens, but a new report out today says there will be no trailer shown to Hall H.
According to an exclusive at Entertainment Weekly, Lucasfilm will only be showing a behind-the-scenes featurette at SDCC on Friday:
First of all, the presentation this Friday afternoon will not include a trailer or any new clips of the movie. The next trailer will be coming in the fall, according to sources with knowledge of the project.
But donâ€™t go hurling your cup of blue milk at the wall just yet. There will be other surprises.
Roughly six months before the Dec. 18 release, 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. (Itâ€™s still locked down. Lucasfilm and parent company Disney declined requests for comment.)
Likely the behind the scenes thing will be a few minutes long and show off the creature shop and other practical effects to continue the talking point Lucasfilm has been parroting at every major event. There’s still a chance we’ll see a new trailer at D23 Expo next month along with new Rogue One information.
