For those anxiously awaiting the next trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it has been confirmed that we are mere days away from seeing it! Our friends at Making Star Wars have alerted us to the news that a number of TV schedules have added listings for a broadcast of the documentary Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey on ABC at 8:00pm ET on Friday, July 15th. While the television debut of Episode VII's behind the scenes documentary is big news itself, it's the fine print that's really exciting.
The description on certain listings reveals that a three-minute long trailer for Rogue One will also be accompanying the documentary. Whether the trailer will air before, during or after the main presentation is unclear.
The most interesting thing about this is the fact that this trailer will be airing just hours after the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel takes place at Star Wars Celebration in London. Everyone has been expecting a trailer to premiere at the panel, which is happening at 4:00pm GMT(11:00am ET). It seems to me that the trailer will be officially unveiled at Celebration and will be presented to TV audiences later in the day on ABC. While it's possible the trailer could be exclusively shown at Celebration and held back from the rest of the world until it airs on ABC, that seems unlikely. Lucasfilm has been notorious for releasing their trailers online as soon as they're shown at live events. Nevertheless, the main point here is the confirmation that we are indeed getting a new trailer on the 15th, and it's three minutes long. That is incredibly exciting.
The Star Wars Underworld team will be on the ground in London next week to report back on all the big news that's revealed, so keep it here for the latest updates!
