J.J. Abrams on ‘Star Wars 7’ Trailer Strategy

J.J. Abrams explained Disney’s strategy with the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailers this weekends at an event he hosted.

Held at the offices of his production company Bad Robot, he revealed his appreciation for fan’s hunger for a new trailer and that there are conversations always going on about when the studio will release the next trailer.

“First of all, I’m always grateful that people would be asking. But the truth is like we haven’t shown anything. We don’t want to be coy but we have almost a year until the movie comes out, so we have to be smart about what we say and when. We’re always having conversations about it. There’s sort of an abundance of riches with the stuff we could put out so we’re just trying to make sure it’s as good as it could be before we put anything out. The disaster would be to race something out for the sake of making an impact and it being not as good as people deserve. I would say thank you for being interested. Thank you for your patience and honestly, I can’t wait for you to see the film.”

Some of the popular rumors circulating about when the trailer will surface are that it will debut during Star Wars Celebration on April 16 or before the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ on May 1.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

Disney to Announce ‘Star Wars’ Theme Park

After acquiring the rights to ‘Star Wars’, Disney has made it no secret that they will be integrating the franchise into their theme parks. Disney CEO Bob Iger has often been quoted saying that the new films will be featured heavily at the parks. Now Iger has spoken with Wall Street analysts about future plans, saying that an announcement will be made in 2015.

“Fairly soon, I’m sure we’ll be ready to go public with some specifics. But it’s safe to say that you’ll see a lot more Star Wars at Disney and at Disney parks in the near future.”

The CEO has called the park “ambitious” and that it will most likely be featured in several parks across the world. This report comes not long after those claiming that Disney scrapped original plans for a ‘Star Wars’ themed park after the new Harry Potter expansion at Universal proved to be far superior. Also, if I had to guess, the Star Wars themed park would be a part of Hollywood Studios in Orlando due to the closure of several attractions around the pre-existing Star Tours ride.

Let us know in the comments if you are excited about the new park!

Despite reports that the original cast will be featured in the next trailer, new reports are claiming that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill won’t be featured in any of the advertising for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.

A reporter from /film is claiming that Disney and LucasFilm are going with original plans not to feature the original cast in advertising for the upcoming film to focus more energy on introducing new characters. The advertising is expected to rely more heavily on newcomers to the franchise Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver and unknown characters played by Lupita Nyongo’o, Domhnall Gleeson and Max von Sydow.

In addition to wanting to introduce audiences to these new characters, the filmmakers also claim that the new series isn’t about the original characters. They are also wishing to maintain an air of mystery about the films.

Rumors claim that the next Star Wars trailer is set to debut along with ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ when it is released on May 1. As of now, nothing has been confirmed by the filmmakers, Disney, and LucasFilm.
