UPDATED: What we’ve heard about the final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer release date so far

By  | 

Update:

Based on multiple sources that have been very reliable in the past, it appears there could be a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer in the later half of next week.  Time zone differences make it difficult to pin down exactly which day but we are confident it is the later part of the week. We consider the likelihood of there being a trailer extremely high. Original report follows below.


Today’s news pertains to the Kino Expo International where it was revealed that the final Rogue One trailer would hit with Dr. Strange. There is no doubt in my mind when we see Dr. Strange we will see the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer attached to it. However, I have been working on when the next trailer will drop and I really do believe we will see it in advance of the Dr. Strange release date of November 4th. I believe it will be out in October.

More than one source has pinned the release date down to an October release online and on televsion, not a November release. I’m pretty sure we’re going to see it around the middle of the month on the Internet and television at this point. Sources in the theater industry believe they will have the trailer by the last week of the month and sources in television have said it was in October for sure. Other sources have spoken of dates between the 12th and the 28th. Based on all of that we think the trailer is coming around mid-October and then it will find its way into theaters and attached to Dr. Strange after that. All signs point towards the trailer in the second half of the month of October.

As always we can be wrong on this stuff and these plans can change. But right now, at makingstarwars.net we’re expecting the trailer in October. These sources have never failed us in the past. Hopefully we will have the exact date soon from the official Star Wars channels revealed well before that.

Sorry for the ambiguity on the release date–I was actually working on this story for a week when this news broke today.

I can’t wait to see the final trailer personally. I think Rogue One is going to be a very unique Star Wars movie. We’re almost there and I can’t wait. I think right now I’m more excited for Rogue One than I was for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I’m anxious to get one more good look at the film before the release in December.
