Now that the decade-long drought of Star Wars movies has ended, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the latest film to gather some hype. In regard to the overall story and cast, little is known about what The Last Jedi will be bringing us. However, what we do know is enough to formulate a fair share of theories, thanks to a talented creative team and casting rumors that bode well for the film’s release on Dec. 15, 2017.
1. The first trailer debuted at April’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida
Given that the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrived a full year before the film’s release, it’s been odd to see The Last Jedi wait this long to release an official trailer. However, a handful of sources reported that Lucasfilm planned to unveil the first trailer at April’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida, and man was it a doozy. It certainly made sense from a timing perspective too, based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s own similar schedule for releasing trailers in 2016.
