On April 16th at 10am Pacific Time J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy will present some Episode VII scoop. First up is the rumor that they will reveal an official poster. While we know Episode VII will be called The Force Awakens we have yet to see an official poster. This is something that many people will be excited for and might give us some insight to what the movie is about.
They will also be debuting a new trailer. What will be in this trailer no one knows but the folks over at MakingStarwars.net think they have the scope. Below is what they say will be in the trailer.
The teaser runs at about one minute and fifty seconds, just under two minutes.
Han, Leia, R2D2 and C-3PO will be in it.
We do see the planet Yavin in the teaser.
We see a shot of Finn (John Boyega) with a blue lightsaber.
There is a shot of Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), the chrome Stormtrooper.
We do see Kylo Ren’s helmeted face.
We see Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) shoot down a TIE fighter.
A shot of Finn and Poe walking past one another at the base.
Various Shots of Rey (Daisy Ridley).
A shot of Poe, R2D2, C-3PO, and a CGI character (possibly Rose played by Lupita Nyong'o).
BB-8 socketed in the back of an X-wing.
Kylo Ren’s Imperial shuttle flies by with TIE escorts to the Star Destroyer.
More star destroyers.
The Millennium Falcon.
X-wing fighters flying in a V-shape formation.
Darth Vader’s helmet sitting on a podium.
No Andy Serkis.
and sadly no Luke Skywalker.
While it would be cool to see Luke it does lend some credence to the rumors that Luke doesn't show up till the end of the movie.
No word yet when the trailer will be released online although some are claiming to have a pirated copy. The only thing we do know is that it will be in theaters with Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1st.
