While it’s pretty well known that we’ll be seeing the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens next week, now we’ll get to see something else equally as cool.
Collider is exclusively reporting that the first teaser poster for The Force Awakens will debut next week at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.
“Back in February, we reported that Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy were going to kick off Star Wars Celebration â€œin a big way.â€ We can now exclusively report that the kick off will involve the first poster and a new trailer.”
The panel with JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy that will debut the poster and trailer takes place next Thursday, April 16th, at 10:00am Pacific. Everyone who attends the panel will get to see it as Lucasfilm will be simulcasting it to every single stage and screen in the convention center.
Fans not in the US will be able to see the panel as Lucasfilm will show it in cinemas across 23 countries. Exact details on how people will be able to win tickets to that aren’t known yet, but they should be coming very soon.
Star Wars Celebration runs next week from April 16 to the 19 in Anaheim, CA. Originally it was set for this month as Star Wars: The Force Awakens was due to be released on May 22nd. Even though the movie was moved to December, Lucasfilm kept the schedule of the convention as people has bought tickets to it as early as the summer of 2013.
We’ll be at Celebration all four days and will be live tweeting and posting a whole bunch of stuff right from the show. Expect all the news as it hits, as well as anything cool we see from the biggest Star Wars convention in the world. We only have a few more days to go until we get to see more from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
