Will The Last Jedi Drop Its First Trailer at Star Wars Celebration Orlando?


As Lucasfilm gears up for Star Wars Celebration Orlando this coming April, all evidence points to getting a trailer during the The Last Jedi panel.

Every year, Star Wars fans gather in the same location to celebrate the almighty and undeniable awesomeness that is Star Wars. This event is known as Star Wars Celebration. Last year, the celebration took place in Europe. Fans in attendance got the first chance to see exclusive Star Wars and Rogue One footage. This year, Orlando hosts the event. And since this celebration falls between Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it promises to be an exciting time.

Last week, Star Wars celebration announced that Rogue One star Felicity Jones would be in attendance. And on Wednesday, they also announced a panel dedicated to The Last Jedi that will take place on Friday, April 14. Members of this panel include Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and The Last Jedi‘s director Rian Johnson.

Since The Last Jedi is the next and biggest Lucasfilm project on the horizon, many fans speculate that it would be the perfect time to drop a trailer.

As Entertainment Weekly explains:

"Celebration gatherings have previously led to major footage reveals for the new wave of Star Wars films. The Force Awakens dropped its “Chewie, we’re home” trailer at the Anaheim, California fan convention in 2015, and last year in London, a behind-the-scenes reel for Rogue One was showcased"

Obviously, this will be the can’t-miss event of the convention. (Though, try not to fret too much if you don’t get a wristband for the panel. Luckily, we live in 2017 and the internet will get its hands on any exclusive content almost immediately.)

Remember that Rogue One‘s first teaser trailer dropped in April last year too. So the Celebration seems like a pretty good guess for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
