Star Wars 9 teaser trailer release date next WEDNESDAY and THIS is why | Films | Entertainment |
It looks like the countdown is finally about to start to the final conclusion of the entire Skywalker saga. After twelve months of reactions, reports, rumours and leaks, not to mention a rather extraordinary backlash, it is time to start preparing for Episode IX. Various reports claim the first teaser trailer has been completed, although there has still been no notification from the official classification boards. There are five powerful reasons why this coming Wednesday could reveal the first official look at Luke, Leia, Kylo Ren, Rey and the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando.

1. The most important factor this time is the release date of Star Wars 9 in cinemas. It will open in the US on December 20 with previews on December 19. The UK is expected to follow a similar pattern.
All the major film studios like to follows patterns with their marketing strategies. Exactly one year before the big screen release date has a nice ring to it. Unsubstantiated reports even claim cinemas have already received the secretly coded trailer.
2. December 19 this year also sees the release of the final issue of the hugely popular Star Wars: Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith comicbook series. Releasing the trailer the same day would boost all things Star Wars in one simple step.

3. Disney will not release anything from next weekend when Mary Poppins Returns launches in cinemas worldwide. The studio will not want to split focus between two such major projects.
4. There is also still the matter of the pending Spider-Man Far From Home first trailer. This has also been reported to be ready for release. It has already been shown to a closed audience of fans at the CCXP Comic Con in Sao Paulo, Brazil, last week. Many commentators had expected it to be released online and in cinemas with this weekend’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
It is most likely that either the Spider-Man or Star Wars trailer will be released this week and the other some time later in the month after Mary Poppin’s launch.

5. Another strong rumour pins the Episode 9 trailer date on Christmas Day itself. This followed an onlooker overhearing a new Christmas Day advert being shot at Disney World and teh presenter included a link to camera which contained a line about it being time to look at something exciting in a galaxy far, far away.
Obviously this could refer to one of the Star Wars features at the Disney park. It also seems unlikely that teh family-friendly Disney corporation would release a trailer on Christmas Day which will split families as fans rushed to the internet to watch and react.
