UPDATE 3! EXCLUSIVE: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer to be Released with The Hobbit on December 17.

clapperboard1

The mystery surrounding the release of the much-anticipated teaser trailer may not be a mystery much longer!

 

Details after the jump…

 

 

That’s right folks, we might finally know exactly when the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser will be released. We are receiving strong hints from multiple sources that it will, in fact, accompany The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies when it is released on December 17th.

 

Firstly, our own Echo-07 has spoken with a local theater manager, who has indicated that the teaser for The Force Awakens will indeed be released along with the new Hobbit movie in December. The manager said they don’t get the trailer info very far in advance. It comes on a drive (all digital now). He said he didn’t think it would come in with Hunger Games: Mockingjay. He also said that companies (like Disney) aren’t allowed to “cross-promote” except for two times in a year. There are rules and regs about this apparently. However, since Hobbit comes out a year before Star Wars: The Force Awakens it could be close enough to be within these rules.

 

Secondly, we have this tweet from Reece Steel containing a fairly definitive quote from Tommy Gormley, the first assistant director on The Force Awakens (who recently received a BAFTA award):

 

 

UPDATE! The tweet and the whole account of the person who posted it has been deleted. Here’s a screencapture:

 

Tweet

 

And as we recently reported, director Peter Jackson has visited the set of The Force Awakens during principle photography. Was this a coincidence? Who knows…

 

We will keep you posted with updates as we receive them, but it is beginning to look a lot like we’ll be getting our first glimpse of the new Star Wars movie along with our last cinematic visit to Middle Earth next month.

 

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens December 17, almost exactly one year before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

 

 

UPDATE 2!

 

/Film has more on the upcoming TFA teaser:

Wednesday, a very credible sounding rumor began to circulate that the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Well, we’ve heard from a very credible source that, with 100% certainty, the Star Wars 7 trailer won’t debut with Peter Jackson’s latest The Hobbit film. There’s a very strong likelihood it will play with that film but according to the source, Disney has “bigger plans” for the trailer debut than a simple attachment. 

 

Disney having bigger plans for the trailer definitely makes sense. This could probably mean a TV debut first. Maybe with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid season finale on December 9th? Disney already tried to do something similar with The Avenger: Age of Ultron teaser attaching it to the same show, but the trailer leaked online and they had to officially release it earlier.

 

We’re still waiting for 2 theater owners to give us feedback on the trailer. Also I’m waiting for a reply by the guy who posted the tweet yesterday and later deleted his account. We will keep you updated.

 

 

UPDATE 3!

 

/Film has even more rumored details about the release date of TFA teaser trailer:

I have independently confirmed with good sources that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer will be shown in a limited number of theaters during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. I know that there will be a limited amount of theaters participating in the “preview.” I have not confirmed any more details other than that.

Also here’s another interesting story from yesterday that we first decided not to post, but now it makes more sense:

 

The Cantina member Darth Matt first reported yesterday a very interesting rumor posted on reddit. It’s yet another possible release date for TFA teaser trailer.

 

Here’s a screen capture of the actual post (the post has been deleted since). Thanks again to Darth Matt for saving it down.

Later the same user revealed where he got his info from:

Also Drath Matt made some more digging and found out that someone else has claimed something similar earlier today:

Later another reddit member who claims to be a corporate employee of the largest chains in the US added this debunk message:

Source: reddit

 

 

 

Personally I am puzzled why if Disney want to go bigger with the trailer, they would want to release it in limited amount of theaters in the US? What about the rest of the world? Obviously if they want to go bigger they have to release it first online, right?

 

As you can see it’s really a tricky situation. So many rumors and so many possibilities. The best thing is that no matter what, we will most likely see the teaser in the next 3 weeks.

            The teaser will definitely premiere in theaters or during an industry expo/con (e.g. SW Celebration 2015), not on TV during the sportsball show.

            The earliest we can expect it is Feb. or Mar., but it will probably end up being around April or May.

            • Anonymous itch

              Plus the Super Bowl (I have a light grasp at what it is) isn’t really an international thing (correct me if I’m wrong good ladies and sirs of the internet) so to have the teaser be shown there earliest/exclusively makes no sense to a global fan base of an amazing universe (with sound in space!)

              • Anonymous

                The Super Bowl is almost always the most watched televised event every year. I think that it will show then.

      • Stibbs

        The Hobbit movies are making roughly the same money as the LOTR films. They aren’t hurting for ticket sales.

        • Anonymous

          It’s not about “hurting” it’s about trying to make even MORE money than the Hobbit films already do. Starting a rumor about a tacked on SW7 teaser would generate a considerable amount of extra profit from boosted ticket sales…basically for free. If you think marketing gurus are above this sort thing, then you know nothing Jon Snow.

          Why the hell you are talking about the respect the people who worked on it?
          That’s not the matter!
          They spend a lot of time with something we didn’t like it. ANd that’s all. For me the scripts, cinematography, acting, and editing are bad. And yes, it’s my opinion.

        how painfully right you are. Hobbit 2 is just that bad that I won’t have strength enough to watch it ever again, it’ s so embarassing to watch it……and now, when I saw yesterday on tv hobbit 1 I just cry what the hell! I don’ t remember it being that bad. The bad cgi main orc (anyone know why orcs and some elves are talking soooooo slowly? – my guess is the actors have difficulty to speak in orc/elven language, which is not helping to already bad movie. Almost 50 % of hobbit 1 and 90 % of hobbit 2 is made up and nothing to do with the book. The only good parts are those true to the book. The rest is pure trash. I guess kids would enjoy this movies, lots of action scenes and zero story telling, but I can’t imagine let my kids watch it before they are at least 10 y.o.

      Lol, with the huge ammount of people that will be seeing The Hobbit, I don’t see your point.

      • Sleazbaggano

        People aren’t into the Hobbit as they were with LOTR. The last two Hobbit movies did well financially but we’re disappointments as a whole. Personally, I like the first one and think they should’ve been one or two movies (as originally planned). Now there’s another Hobbit movie and the general public is probably not anticipating it. My guess is that if this trailer weren’t attached, this would be the least successful Hobbit movie.

        • Anonymous

          Yaaa the thing is numbers don’t lie and the vocal opinions of geeks on the internet do not represent the consensus. Leave your b.s. at the door, you don’t have the numbers in front of you to show why this is a good move they do.

          Sure you could argue that The Hobbit isn’t doing LOTR numbers but you couldn’t possibly be taken seriously if you’re seriously suggesting the films have not been hugely successful in their own right.

          • Elan Sleazbaggano

            They’re not as successful as LOTR obviously but as each film goes on, less and less people are giving a $hit – I know I’m starting to get tired of them. A good percentage of the Hobbit’s gross will be because of this trailer and we might never know what it would’ve made without the SW7 trailer.

            Those movies could go on forever and they would eventually appeal only to a niche market which will get tired of them. All I’m saying they’re already there. The SW7 trailer is what the Hobbit needs. SW doesn’t need the Hobbit.

            • Anonymous

              Each hobbit movie has made 1 Billion worldwide. Trust me, The Hobbit is going to be just fine with or without the Star Wars trailer. In fact, I’d say that having the trailer attached to it would only increase the box office by less than a million. You have to remember that most people don’t know about this stuff. We are the 1% who read blogs and news updates and research every little tweet or hint.

              Um, there’s something called the internet. I’m quite sure I’ll be able to skip the hobbit and see the trailer

                My thoughts exactly.Even if they manage to avoid a leak, a pirate copy of this will be online within minutes of it being shown. Before the movie “Hobbits 3 – More Hobbitses!” even begins the trailer willl be on – from multiple sources.

          • Anonymous

            Agreed I had the Hobbit circled on my calendar all year. Now seeing the Trailer for Star Wars 7 even makes that date even better.

          • Numbers don’t lie?

            Lie about what? So one is not entitled to a negative oppinion about a movie because lot’s of people went to see it? What if they all did not like it? What if they all did like it? History has shown that trusting the verdict of the “masses”, the “man on the Clapham omnibus”, “your average guy” can be quite ill advised. I, just like the surviving Tolkiens, did not appreciate PJ LOTR and Hobbit. The later were childish jump & run movies with just as many farting jokes as EP1. They might be considered good holywood movies, but they are IMO not good adaptations of Tolkiens work.
            The only ones that could pull that off is the BBC and one of their splendid costume drama directors, certanly not a Horror-B-movie maker with the sophistication of a 13 year old.

            • Derth Nadir

              I think Anonymous 00:48 AM was talking about success of numbers because Sleazbaggano said they weren’t as successful as LOTR and that the general public isn’t anticipating the new one. Anon was saying the numbers show different with regards to the general public wanting to see the movies, not that people can’t have opinions about the movies. Sleazbaggano was using his opinion and that of some other geeks to suggest that putting Star Wars on The Hobbit is a bad decision or a crutch, but the numbers show both of those are wrong. Hobbit: BOFA will be huge and Disney knows it. And there are plenty of us geeks that still like the Hobbit movies and can’t wait to watch the end. Some people take the grumblings of geeks as a barometer of how a movie franchise is doing, when that has nothing to do with the success of the franchise (just look at Transformers).

            • S. Crumb

              You do remember that Peter Jackson directed the Lord of the Rings? Right? Those little fantasy movies that were nominated for like 37 academy awards. And you do remember The Hobbit was a children’s book? It’s supposed to be lighthearted and fun. Besides it doesn’t matter how close to the book it is, it matters whether or not the movie is good. That’s the main goal, make a good movie.

              • Stu

                But that’s the problem — the Hobbit movies just aren’t good. Obviously a lot of people have seen them (so commercially they have worked), but they really are poor. Of all the people I know who have seen them (and most skipped the second one), they came out of the cinema feeling ripped off. I found Desolation to be essentially unwatchable. Every scene just went on and on and on…

    • iPadCary

    That is awfully magnanimous of Disney. I was already eager to see part III of the Hobbit, now that excitement goes up another notch.

    • DaveOlden

      Remember: a movie trailer is *advertising*

      They want as many sets of eyeballs to see it as possible. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will have a substantial audience, the kind of audience that likes Star Wars, too.

      If anyone’s being generous, it’s Peter Jackson and WB, for letting Disney/Lucasfilm along for the ride…

      • Darth Qaidous

        I love Tolkien’s world (and Peter Jackson’s vision of it) as much as anyone, however, this is the Star Wars sequel trilogy we’re talking about here. Any film which features a trailer for Episode VII attached to it, will be the beneficiary due to the portion of the audience that are Tolkien-haters/Star Wars lovers. I don’t understand any of the hate as I love both entities.

      By the way, rumor is that Episode VII does not actually exist. This is a very expensive performance piece by Marina Abramovic being funded by several high end museums, galleries, and cultural entrépreneurs like Kanye West and Jay Z. According to someone from the Abramovic Institute, the piece is about the building of anticipation in popular culture only to have desire unmet. The question of where that energy ends up going is central to the work. Couldn’t believe it myself, but I’ve heard enough rumblings in the art world about it to make me think there’s something to it.

Where did Legolas get in the lake town that digital horse? Was it a magical elven pocket horse? You just throw it to the ground, say abracadabra and the horse get big….

            PJ did pretty well in LOTR, so don’t trash him.
            The Hobbit is pretty guilty of what your saying, there is no satisfactory explanation for the Hobbit

          Hey uh I don’t condone the idea of mob mentality when it comes to what defines quality in art, but as a matter of fact the consensus is that Smaug is easily the greatest dragon ever seen on screen (seriously do you even know the competition?) and is a strong contender for the single greatest cgi character ever seen on film. Yes that’s the consensus. Google it

          You people are fucking annoying. Having an opinion in and of itself is not a virtue.

            Totally agree. I never saw a bigger dragon onscreen, nor imagine in any book or story. He was so big, that they had to pretend that an harpoon is actually an arrow and of course, there´s no bowman, just a ballista…

              I´m 40, granpa. I liked PT much more than CGI orcs in Hobbit, and sorry to say, granpa, but the elf girl/little man pretending to be dwarf love moments made me feel embarrassed for the poor actors who had to do it. Not even Jar Jar is that bad like so many things in Smaug – the entirelly movie is bad, not just the cgi, but timing, running running running…head jumping, Legolas making yet another uber kill, Wolwerine…or was it the last Mohican? Really, where to start? What to add? When the dwars come to the mountain´s door, they don´t find the keyhole, they just wrinkle their shoulders and turn back, what can we do…and Bilbo rops the key and my heart almost stopped by fear that now we´ll see a 15 minutes jumping and climbing the cliff to catch the key….ninja orcs (I remember in Lord of the Rings they can´t go on a daylight) the dragon….he has dwarves running all around him and can´t hit them with his flame? His fire (the dragon fire) can´t event start fire to dwarves beard? Nor hurt them in any way being half meter from the flames???? And the big plan of Thorin ant the end how to kill the dragon? OOOOOOOoh my god, you can´t be serious this is enjoyable to watch?????? I even tried – succesfully – to like Hobbit 1! With the bad cgi orc and the goblin town! Imagin that! Even with the falling bridge from half mile and all dwarves alive (Because they are immortal – not even a deadly morgul whatever weapon can deal with them – and it´s said tat it´s incurable….) :-) do you want me to continue? We could be ere till next morning…the trth is, Smaug was consumed by Jackson´s ego, and those who sincerely liked this movie are worshippers of every of PJs farts just because it´s Peter Jacskon.

              • Gandalf the Green

                The film had its flaws but you’re exaggerating them. Either way, I like to think of the Hobbit films as an alternate version of how it happened – Bilbo “embellishing” the story, adding stuff, etc. That’s how I think of the Hobbit trilogy to make sure the LOTR trilogy still makes sense to me. I hope that at the end of the trilogy, it cuts back to Bilbo saying “Now it may not have happened exactly as I wrote it, but all good stories deserve embellishment.” – just to make a reference to what Gandalf said in AUJ, that all good stories deserve embellishment.

                The Smaug sequence could’ve been cut to him chasing Bilbo, only to find out about his (to him) possible Laketown affiliation. Nonetheless, the extended edition of DOS is a much, much better film and Tauriel seems more like a supporting character as she should be, since there (luckily) are zero extra scenes of her. It also adds the character of Thrain, which helps tie the Dol Guldur sequences to the main story before it all comes together in the final film. But frankly, I’m very glad they decided to add the Dol Guldur storyline. It’s quite likly my favorite part of these films and I am looking forward to the conclusion in the third film, but also the battle of the armies itself.

                The last 2 movies have been absolutely horrible. The Hobbit made me so mad when I left the theater I swore to never see the 2nd movie (of course I did). The 2nd movie was a bit better but God not much.

    It won’t be online the same day, thats the whole damn point of putting it in the premiere (mutual advertising).

All I saw ws running running jumping jumping, running running morgul blade, running running, the end. This is not The Hobbit. It is some film that Peter Jackson made up full of neverending action sequences.

      • Mythamuel the Ominous Cookie

        You sir have actually pinpointed the problem with the hobbit.
        The Hobbit was and is a great book, even with it’s SUPER obvious Gandalf gone and back again plot dynamic. Let’s just say Tolkien came up with the whole Dol Guldur backstory AFTER the Hobbit was released (look it up)
        but back to what I was saying, I like the Hobbit book. THe book has quite a lot of charm, it’s not an action book, it’s a book about a bunch of immature fat guys on a road-trip gone wrong.
        This movie is a blockbuster badly disguised as a book adaptation. I like LOTR, I like Hobbit book, I like Peter Jackson,
        I just don’t like what the guy I like did with the book i like

        Not only that, but they’re poorly filmed and conceived endless action scenes. The CG isn’t good, the actions and abilities of characters make little to no sense, and it lacks any feeling of realism whatsover. The first was okay in patches, the second was barely even watchable when I rented it from RedBox. I have no desire to suffer through the third, in the theater or at home, SW trailer or not.

        • Gandalf the Green

          See the Hobbit films as an alternate way of how it happened, imaginations conjured up by Bilbo for his book. Then at the end of the third film, I hope he will say “Now it may not have happened exactly as I wrote it, but all good stories deserve embellishment.”
          Then he says, after a while of thinking, “No.. this is not it.”, followed by him ripping out the pages to rewrite the entire thing. That would be a nice way to tie the trilogy to FOTR and to explain all the inconsistencies… and it would also make sense, because in the beginning of Fellowship, Bilbo had only just begun to write his book.

    This is complete BS given by “local theater manager”. Having managed a theater for many years in the Boston area I know he is full of it. A couple things, when a movie comes to us on the drives they are password protected so we can not show the movie earlier than the contracted time. In most cases we are sent the password hours before first showtime. It’s not known until then if and what trailers are attached. Second, we won’t get the drive for the Hobbit for weeks. The first people in the know for these sort of “events” are not theater managers, it’s the regional booking reps. Not a word from anyone yet. Sorry, I think your source is giving you all bad info.

      • Johnny Thunder

        It would also take them quite some time to master and mix the score. They don’t just hit ‘record’ on an iPad and then email a raw file over to an editing bay. Lots of care goes into the recording after the orchestra packs it in.

    The thing that doesn’t ring true about this rumour is the 17th of December release date.
    The Hobbit: Battle Of THe Five Armies is released a week earlier, on the 10th-12th of December across most of western Europe. If The Force Awakens trailer isn’t attached to The Hobbit until the North American release date, then tens of millions of European cinema goers, and potential customers, are going to miss out on seeing the trailer. Kind of missing the whole point of attaching TFA’s trailer to The Hobbit in the first place.
    I think a 10-12th December trailer release date is much more likely. Exclusively online at first, then attached to The Hobbit afterwards.

    Like a lot of you, I also tend to wish that Jackson had stuck closer to the book, if for no other reason than that all of this added material (much of which Jackson and company invented themselves) takes Bilbo (Ya know, “The Hobbit”) and relegates him to the level of a supporting character. It’s no longer Bilbo’s story – Bilbo’s story is just one element in an “epic” that was never supposed to be an epic.

    That said, I enjoy the Hobbit movies for what they are, and… well, I just love the opportunity to spend a few more hours in Middle Earth.

    And if we get to see the new SW teaser along with this final Hobbit movie, that’s just aces by me. ;^)

    “He also said that companies (like Disney) aren’t allowed to “cross-promote” except for two times in a year. There are rules and regs about this apparently. However, since Hobbit comes out a year before Star Wars: The Force Awakens it could be close enough to be within these rules.”

    Wait, let’s just clear that convoluted statement up. That doesnt even make sense [industry wise, or common.] In-house promotion would obviously take precedence over cross/promotion.

    Not to mention attaching it to a movie that has disgruntled fans vs a holiday movie that will reach a wider general audience [Into The Woods.]

    Hello guys,

    Yesterday I had a coffie with a friend who works on a LA sound studio. I can’t tell you the name, but it’s indeed the studio where John Williams has been recording the music for the teaser.

    I asked her about the teaser, she had seen it but didn’t want to give me any information about it or confirm / deny what we’ve been hearing due to NDA all technicians signed that day.

    But she said something very interesting when I asked her about the “Disney’s bigger plans” for the teaser release:

    “The November 15th session wasn’t only a recording session, it was also a rehearsal.”

    • Jonathan

      Just a little bit of additional information about that conversation:

      She’s not a fan of Star Wars, but she said that the piece they recorded was familiar to her “You are from another planet if you’ve never listened to that melody”. She also said that some of her colleagues were blown away by the teaser: “I guess if you know the story of Star Wars there may be things that surprise you”

    It would be cool to see the release pattern over the course of the film’s approach, and then compare it to previous eps. we now have a 6 film pattern and a finite duration from conception to release date. If someone has the smarts to make such an infographic i would be keen to see it. it feels like we are getting some sort of info, picture or video about once every three or four weeks at the moment, but it feels like longer and longer each time. even a weird lo-fi campy teaser like TESB would satiate millions of nerds.

    “Romeo and Juliet: they both die. Love Story: she dies. Titanic: he dies.
    Epic love stories end in trajedy.
    So why can’t Han and Leia be epic too?”

    A couple things… firstly, those stories were pretty cut-and-dry, one-and-done films/stories, serving a specific purpose, whilst Star Wars is an ongoing franchise served better by a continuing narrative for its’ characters.

    Secondly, Star Wars is already considered epic, timeless, classic, etc. as is the love story between Han and Leia, so they don’t need to die just because other characters have… going by that logic most Disney love stories end happily-ever-after, and are also considered epic, so Star Wars could just as successfully follow that brand of success.

    Thirdly, Star Wars was supposed to be a means of escapism from the negativity at the time, whereby people weren’t expecting happily-ever-afters. These are times wherein people seem to be once again irreparably jaded, probably because of negative news, magazines, commercials, social media, wars, bullying, politics, supposed lack of incomes, etc. People may not realize/admit it, but they may need happily-ever-afters now more than they think they do, and that’s where Star Wars comes in…

    Fourthly, Star Wars is set in a fictional universe where real life woes needn’t apply to its’ magical characters/settings.

    This next part is just my opinion, so please don’t take it personally, but ’tis rather depressing to see peoples’ collective enthusiasm, for lack of a better word, in casting the prior generation aside… and no I don’t think that attitude stems from Harrison Ford wanting his character to die previously. I suspect that most fans just want to move on.

    Kinda makes you wonder what happened to the fans that abhorred ‘Legends’ deaths such as Chewie, Mara, Anakin Solo, etc. Oh, and how about those fans that displayed such disdain for Lando’s death in Return of the Jedi that Lucas scrapped that idea, and ran with his survival. Yup, I wonder whatever happened to those fans… I mean I’ve heard stories about their exploits, but no matter where I look I can’t seem to find them anywhere. Eh, I suppose I can create my own fanbase by posting under different names, and raise my own spirits for Episode 7, though… so, there’s that, I guess. Ha-ha kidding, of course… kinda, sorta.

    dear Star Wars fans,
    how cool would it be if Disney released a one minute teaser online… and the “bigger plan” is that they actually finished the first 5 minutes of the TFA (with a cliff hanger ending of course) which will be show in theaters this Christmas? — that would be an event in itself… this five minute intro will also be the actual beginning of next year’s finished film, the cliff hanger ending is now followed by the Star Wars logo/emphatic beginning of the main theme, continuing with the crawl and then the rest of the movie begins. ahhhh, just dreaming…

    Is the site being renamed ForceAwakensNews on December 31? You said something like that would happen. Anyway there isn’t anything really left to do with this movie. The news cycle is winding down as far as trying to figure which character is who is playing what.

    Unless there’s some big surprise with the script going on for Episode 8 and 9? Someone can spy on Rian Johnson.

      Nope, we’re sticking with this name through all of 2015 before shifting to something else. Remember that “Episode VII” is still part of the movie’s title (and it will be seen in the opening crawl), but it won’t be advertised as SWEVII:TFA, just SW:TFA.

    Personally, I’d rather see the preview in the theater. There’s just a different energy present when you’re in a room with others and you don’t know whats about to happen. The atmosphere is alive with anticipation and emotion. That’s something you simply can’t get by hitting play on a Youtube video.

    To address the debunking thread,…

    All of the things mentioned about theater/trailer negotiations are true, but this is (obviously) an extenuating circumstance. That’s why 100 theaters makes more sense, purely for logistical reasons.

    Reddit is posting that the trailer might be released next week?

    Any truth to the rumour?
    And another UK site has it for the next five weeks..

    What the heck does it mean “some NATO members has seen the trailer?”

    It’s referring to the actual worldwide governmental organization (North Atlantic Treaty Organization). They have seen trailer and are currently negotiating with the Trade Federation (headed by Nute Gunray) to determine when and where to release the trailer.

    Maybe Peter Jackson will direct Star Wars 8

    The trailer will be played live at halftime during the Seahawks-49ers game Thursday night in San Francisco

      Cool. As long as the Niners get the win, that’ll be two awesome events!

      If this is legit, looks cool even though it’s just a couple of seconds long.
      Someone also posted a pretty cool hypothetical intro/scroll on YouTube. What’s awesome is to see the official yellow font of Episode VII The Force Awakens in the scroll. Looks exactly like what is posted here for update #3

      That really was not done well. Pacing is sloooooow. Editor needs to learn how to create more excitement and tension with faster cuts. Why bother showing the entire Disney logo at the head. I was already bored by the time Lucasfilm card came up.

    the only good LOTR movie was the first. with that said, i saw all of them in the theater on opening night and i plan on doing the same for hobbit 3 with or without the SW trailer.
