It is indeed true that Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will be released on Monday the 19th. The announcement should come about twelve hours or so before the airing (these things tend to fluctuate). We believe the trailer will appear with a football game that evening, but that bit is only semi-confirmed (although most likely dead on). I wish I had better sources on the sports scene but it isn’t my thing. We assume the trailer will be posted online moments after it is on television.
The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens logo will appear at this time as well. The generic Star Wars: The Force Awakens logo will be out and the actual logo for the film will finally be revealed. We believe the new logo will be the one that we will see in the trailer and start to turn up on merchandise in the near future.
This trailer is really going to be something special. I don’t want to spoil it. But I think we’re going to be very happy fans this Monday. I really think J.J. Abrams has made something special here and I’m going to sit this one out and hope that it doesn’t leak. In the past I only released the teaser descriptions to shut down the fake ones. It appears we don’t have a problem with that this time.
The good news is we are at the finish line for The Force Awakens. I can confirm to the best of my ability a new logo and a Monday trailer announcement followed by a trailer this Monday.
Update: Germain at io9 has heard:
UPDATE 10/15: We’ve heard from multiple sources that here’s what’s happening with Star Wars: The Force Awakens this weekend.
First, we’ll get to see the official one sheet on Sunday morning.
Second, the trailer will debut Monday night, roughly around 8pm EST.
Third, tickets will go on sale very soon after that, likely around 8:30pm EST. They should be available at most, if not all, ticketing sites and theaters.
I would take Germain’s word on this. On a side note, Viral at Star Wars News Network heard there wouldn’t be a new logo. Perhaps the logo talk and the poster talk became intertwined?
Looks like the fun starts this Sunday, a little earlier than we thought!
