UPDATE 2! The Full Trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens Coming on October 19th?

Kylo RenDuring this year’s SDCC, J.J. Abrams revealed that the full trailer for The Force Awakens will be released during the fall. Astronomically the fall starts in September and ends in December. There were lot’s of reports and rumors about when we could expect the trailer to hit, with the most common one being around the mid of October, during the premiere of Star Wars: Rebels Season 2. Then new reports emerged that suggested the trailer could be pushed back to November, but now we’re hearing that the trailer could be just around the corner, only 2 weeks away…

 

 

October 6th, 2015

 

For some time now we’ve been trying to uncover the release date for the full trailer. Unfortunately our sources were not allowed to reveal it. Still we managed to get some tiny bits and pieces like, the trailer wouldn’t be released on October 2nd with The Martian or on October 30th, which was the date Disney bought Lucasfilm, and we’ve learned that the trailer won’t hit on any Friday in October.

 

We’ve also found out that until the trailer is released no new footage from The Force Awakens will be shown, and that the first full trailer will actually be the last one. No more trailers after that, probably just a few TV spots and that’s it.

 

Watch Out, It's Kylo Ren!

 

Now one of our readers sent us something very interesting that we have a good reason to believe in. From Dave Olden:

 

I spoke with friend who manages a chain Multiplex in Victoria, BC. He confirmed that IMAX tickets for Star Wars the Force Awakens will be available for online purchase 12:00 am, Monday October 19. He first confirmed the IMAX ticket availability, which he added would apply to all shows, not just IMAX. (If you can buy for one, you can buy for all).


That’s when he told me, verbally, that The 19th of October is when we get the new trailer. I asked, “Is that for SURE?” And he nodded and said, “Yup.”
He also told me this means for North America (Canada + US), not just here.

 

As I said we have another reason to believe that October 19th is indeed the date when the trailer will be officially released, but still keep in mind that this is not 100% confirmed. Apart from that reason, the release date also matches with the previous rumors about the advance ticket sales.

 

It’s very uncommon to release a trailer on Monday, but I think Disney has proven that they don’t care much about these things. Also we still believe that the trailer will be announced a few days before it premieres, and it would make perfect sense if they do that during the Rebels Season 2 premiere on October 14th. I won’t be surprised if we even get a teaser of the trailer on that day.

 

So there you have it. I have a good reason to believe that the first and only The Force Awakens trailer will debut on October 19th, when the sales of the tickets will begin. Are you ready?

 

 

 

UPDATE!

 

October 10th, 2015

 

Our friends at Schmoes Know are backing us up, reporting that according to their sources the trailer will indeed drop on October 19th. They also say that there will be an announcement the day before:

 

 


Other sites are reporting that the trailer should be released online on October 16th, but this is not what we’ve heard. We continue to stand behind our report for an October 19th release of the first and last The Force Awakens trailer.

 

 

UPDATE 2!

 

October 15th, 2015

 

More and more sites are reporting that the trailer will be released on October 19th, as we first told you 10 days ago. Here are some more possible details from io9 about the trailer’s air time:

 

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.

 

We’re almost there. Stay tuned for an official announcement about the trailer in the following days.

    wooohooo

  • Kenny Ritchie

    Sweet!!! Official confirmation would be nice, but the 19th sounds about right.

  • Melike

    I HOPE SO

  • Me Vil

    Only 72 days left? I think it’s time, yes. GIve us this ##### trailer fgs… Bored to death…

    • Ghost of Obi Wan Kenobi

      You would think that the closer we get to a film’s release date, the more rumors and news we would get..

      This is one of the longest news-free droughts we’ve had since production started, and the darned thing is only 70 days away.

      • Jose Enrique Guzman

        And that’s bad why? Do you need to know everything about a movie before watching it?

        • StopDeletingMyPosts

          No they want a trailer. Nobody’s said they want anything else – nothing to do with knowing everything about a movie before watching it – to say they want that is just ridiculous – they just want a trailer. It’s time!

          • Jose Enrique Guzman

            And WHY is that? Why do they want a new trailer? To see new footage, to see what the story is about!! NEW INFORMATION!!! It’s only two months away, be patient and go to the theater NOT KNOWING and be surprised then. You kids this days, you just NEED to know more…

    • Luis Petrizzo Rengel
    • Mathew

      If you’re bored now, what are you going to do when they eventually stop making Star War films? :)

  • Edgar Mellencamp

    In Star Wars 7 News we trust

  • Шура Шпилькин

    Yusss

  • Ironpalms

    They`ll postpone it now that you leaked it.
    GG.

    • Ghost of Obi Wan Kenobi

      and they would do that too….

      • Luis Petrizzo Rengel

        Don’t get pessimistic.

  • Edgar Mellencamp

    StarWarsLeaks is garbage

  • Boberg

    I sure hope so! People are getting more and more negative about the film in the cantina (understandably so, as we are just discussing the same things over and over as we don’t know much), and I hope this can change that. :)

  • Boberg

    I sure hope so! People are getting more and more negative about the film in the cantina (understandably so, as we are just discussing the same things over and over as we don’t know much), and I hope this can change that.

    • Kylo Ren

      You guys wont be negative about it or give a darn bout any cantina conversation when you’re sitting in the theater on the 18th. :P To become more negative about a movie simply because you havent seen any more on it isnt really the movie’s fault itself. i cant picture people in the theater on the 18th saying, well, they didnt show us a trailer soon enough so i dont like this as much. Not bashing you or anyone lol im just as anxious man, believe me, we’re just soooooooo close now. hang in there…

      • MilwGuy

        The Knights of Ren – smart guys! :)

      • Boberg

        Yeah, you are absolutely right. I personally actually like that they wait quite long to release, and that they don’t release too much. I don’t want to know to much once I’m in the teather.
        But I’m extremely exited for it nonetheless! Just hope they don’t reveal to much in it.

        • Kylo Ren

          i hear ya man. i think we’re all just like aahhhhhhh!!!! lol its so close now, its the great final push and we starwars freaks are….freakin. the trailer is soooo enticing just to get SOMETHING so i can understand the frustration, but at the same time dec 18th is so close and it wont matter then.

      • Mathew

        100% agree – if you someone is getting negative about SW Episode 7 just because Disney have only released two teaser trailers, then that this a problem with the person, not with Disney.

      • Sifo Dyas

        The problem is the lack of information is creating a lot of negative hype, countered by unbridled hope/enthusiasm… why is E7 being treated so differently? Is it because it will suck balls, or be so awesome it will blow minds? There seems to be no middle ground. Why can’t E7 be good, E8 be great, and E9 belt it out of the park? Internet generation has no stamina?

  • BossFuggiNass

    I don’t care about the campaign for this movie anymore.

    Good job dumb ass Abrams, only a snively big nose like you can make Star Wars fans sick of a long awaited Star Wars movie before it even came out.

    • Edgar Mellencamp

      Aww whats the matter? Baby wants her rattle? *shakes rattle* you want the rattle? Aww you don’t want it now?

      • tom

        Why “her” rattle?

        • Edgar Mellencamp

          Why not? You sexist pig!

          • Ghost of Obi Wan Kenobi

            I was about to say that about you, but you beat me to it. Have a nice Star Wars-y day.

          • Ainnem Agon

            YOU MISANDRIC! I WANT MORE TOLERANCE!!! MORE EQUALITY!

  • How long before this source turns out to be wrong?

    • daveolden

      We’ll know if my friend is wrong in about 12 days.
      But he’s honest and I trust him. He’s the type of person that if he doesn’t know something, he says, “I dont know,” rather than make something up.

  • Thretosix

    I can’t fathom why there are no movie posters let alone a full trailer at this point. If you are not a Star Wars “fan” you likely have no idea this movie exists.

    • Edgar Mellencamp

      Its because they are relying on people to see it over an extended period of time, the movie will probably be in theaters for over 30 weeks. There is no need to push everyone to watch it on opening weekend, not that important. The main pre-release campaign will be short and sweet.

      • Thretosix

        Not even a movie poster in the theater? You know so when you go see whatever movie you’re going to see this weekend, you see a Star Wars The Force Awakens poster. There is a difference of ramping up efforts and nothing. There are so many Star Wars commercials for toys and cartoons that people think Star Wars is just an ongoing 24/7 Disney milking a namesake. Not showing a trailer or movie poster has nothing to do with a movie being in a theater for 30 weeks.

        • Paul Dameron

          Right I have seen one teaser..just the logo poster at one theater in Chicago. Our local town of 360,000 people and 24 screens…not one poster.

      • Vincent Asaro

        More like 4-6 weeks tops in U.S. theaters.

      • Mathew

        Wow, you think 30 weeks? I was thinking of seeing the movie once a week for as long as it is in theaters (provided it is good of course!)

        • Edgar Mellencamp

          Avatar was 45 or something wasn’t it? I’m only going by that. Though i’m not sure if that included the extended re-release.

    • InglebertHumperdink1

      It’s true. The only people who know about this movie are Star Wars fans. It is so hard to believe but I know several people who had no idea another Star Wars film was being released. It’s almost insulting.

      • Ainnem Agon

        I don´t know ANYBODY who knows that there will be a new SW Ep7… People today don´t care about movies, they just go to watch whataver movie is screening just for the fun…

        • InglebertHumperdink1

          depressing isn’t it? lol. Hopefully Ep 7 will change that, I am optimistic about it :)

            Disney is KILLING Star Wars, son… It is making its own Expaded Universe, all flawled and milked over…

    • Ghost of Obi Wan Kenobi

      It won’t surprise me at all if the full trailer comes out Dec 18, like the novels.

      (Of course by that time everyone here and making star wars.net will know the whole plot anyways.)

  • Chris Gunning

    Oh for goodness sake! What is wrong with some of the people on here!? I’m a 43 year old man and I don’t think I know ANYONE who doesn’t know this movie is coming out. You just have to have been shopping over the last month – if you didn’t already know from the amount of media coverage it has had. Putting out a full trailer with two months to go seems perfectly reasonable to me…

    • Ainnem Agon

      I know no one who knows about Ep7, and I am talking about a 1000 thousand workers company where I work and a 300k citizens city where I live. Nobody CARES about SW…

      • SonOfConstantDiligence

        Nobody cares? Sure they do, they just hide it very well.

      • 999SickBoy666 .

        Ainnem Agon: so, you are saying that you personally went and ask a thousand workers and 300.000 citizens if they know about TFA?

        • Ainnem Agon

          Of course not, but when you are surrounded by half dozen of co-workers and nobody know about SFEp7TFA it might be considered as an indicator in my point of view. The same with the neighbors. One here talked about schools: that would be the best ways to know about the movie expectations. Kids drive parents.

    • Thretosix

      I’m a fan, I run around telling people all the time how I took time off work and plan on seeing at midnight. Most people I mention it to have no idea a movie is coming or that there is even a teaser for it. There are toys, cartoons, books, among many other things that have been year round since at least Episode 3. It is easy for someone to overlook a new movie that has very little promotion. Because most people aren’t “fans” they are just movie goers. Movie goers as a whole see trailers from the movies themselves or commercials. They see posters promoting a movie coming out sometimes even a year in advance. Everyone will have their own unique perspective of what is reasonable. Just as much as some people are freaking out, freaking out over people freaking out, or over the fact that some have no idea the movie is coming out can be because of many reasons. But one would think two months before a movie releases that the general public would be aware, this simply really isn’t the case with The Force Awakens. They are riding that line of genius and pure stupidity too close in my opinion.

      • Chris Gunning

        I’m a teacher. I can tell you that round my way the kids all know. That, ultimately, surely, will be the deciding factor. I just think everyone’s worrying too much.

        • Ainnem Agon

          Hey friend teacher, how much of your student kids are interested in some “Episode 7” of a movie that they may hadn’t even watch the Episode 1?

        • NYJD21

          There are kid with TFA merchandise running around that are too young to have seen any of the movies.

          And CHRISTMAS is coming. That’s enough marketing just going shopping between 11/1 and Dec. 18. Parents and grandparents will know when they see the merchandise pop up everywhere in Nov.

      • Lord Phanatic

        When this trailer drops, peoples (and not just fans) jaws will drop. Phew, talk about a tough little stretch though. I’m happy, not at just this news but also the fact that we are so close to that moment…..ohhhh myyyy.

      • Paul Dameron

        Although I have made my immediate family more then aware since my YouTube waiting last Thanksgiving for the teaser early Friday….lol

    • StopDeletingMyPosts

      I went shopping on Force Friday – there was virtually nobody buying any of the TFA stuff, and the few there were adults like me. I went to Toys R Us the other day to pick up a Lego C-3PO with a red arm, and despite the huge BB8 and Kylo Ren display all round the entrance, there was nobody even browsing around the Star Wars area. There were plenty of parents with their kids, but the kids just kept walking right past without even stopping. It’s like they were oblivious to it all.
      Besides a couple of nerds at work, nobody else I know is aware there’s a film coming out – just my wife who’s sick of me going on about it.

      • Paul Dameron

        At my Toys R Us Monday and employee didn’t know about Force Friday that is had been or a new Star Wars movie was coming…and it was a geeky nerd guy….lol

    • Mathew

      I was visiting my sister two weeks ago, and her husband (who is 41, and a big EU fan) had no idea there was a new Star Wars movie coming at all. I showed him the April teaser and he said “that looks awesome, I’m seeing that, I don’t need to see any more footage”. I couldn’t believe he didn’t even know there was a new SW movie coming out, so I’m sure there are others.

      That said, I’m sure we’ll see SW everywhere in the weeks leading up to the film.

      • Paul Dameron

        Similar story happened here.

  • Jose Enrique Guzman

    Personally, I would not mind if we don’t have another trailer. I DON’T WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ELSE before I walk into that theater to watch this. I want to be surprised and amazed opening night.

    • Kylo Ren

      i know man at this point hell, we’re gonna get one giant trailer just a few weeks later anyway – the force awakens, a two hour trailer of awesomeness. as much as im a hypocrite lol and will watch anything that comes out beforehand, i almost hope nothing else actually does. ive seen enough, bring the real deal…..

  • Wooohoooooo!

  • lookylookymoontard

    I’ve decided I’m not going to watch the new trailer ,it’ll be seriously hard but worth not having the film ruined

    • I doubt the trailer will ruin it. I’m also excited that this will be the only trailer they release before the movie comes out. This shows they really want to make it great, also I don;t think they’ll put the whole movie into this trailer like a lot of movies do,,

      • Lord Phanatic

        This is disney’s current golden child. They are not gonna screw up a 4 1/2 billion dollar purchase. This sh## has probably been in the works for way more than 3 years.

    • mehmet ersen

      No need to watch it. Confirmation that it was amazing would be enough for me. Saying that i will probably watch it straight away!.lol

      • Chippendales Won’t Hire Me

        Can you link to where you heard it was amazing? Would like to read more about that.

    • Luis Petrizzo Rengel

      Because it will show spoilers? Gimme a break, you need patience in how it will be handled.

      • lookylookymoontard

        Not spoiled so much as I don’t want to be sitting in the cinema waiting for any specific scenes that I’ve seen snippets of in the trailer, but that’s my own weird problem

        • Kylo Ren

          no i agree in a way, man, i know what ya mean

        • Mathew

          I totally understand – I have that problem too. It happened to me during all of the prequels. Recently I was reminded of it while watching The Martian, knowing that certain things would go wrong because I had seen them in the trailer. I’ve decided not to watch the final trailer either – whether I’ll be strong enough to stop myself watching it is another thing though…

    • skysamfreeman

      Considering their strategy thus far, I don’t think they’d be THAT stupid to make a trailer that ruins the movie. It’s gonna be like Teaser 2 but with more of the characters talking. Doubt they’ll show Luke and if they show Leia it will be for a glimpse. Han might get some time though.

      • evan

        I respect those people that say they don’t want to watch any trailers or anything, but I am certainly not one of them. I think trailers and magazine exclusives and other things like that enhance the experience. For those people that avoided everything the magic of the movie is only going to last for however long the movie is. But for me, I have been riding the anticipation high since last November. I don’t look at spoilers or TV spots, just officially released materials. And I disagree that seeing the trailers spoils the movie. I just watched the Martian and not once did I think that I was losing out on something because I had seen part of the movie in the trailer. If a movie is good it’ll suck you in and you won’t even notice. Just my opinion of course.

        • The MacGuffin Guy

          I couldn’t agree more- for me, the aniticipation IS part of the movie. Waiting for trailers, standing in line geeking out with friends, etc. is all part of a long chain of fun. Even if the movie sucks (which I really doubt) I have already had hours of fun speculating and watching teasers to make TFA a positive experience. If I skip all that and the movie isn’t as good as I hope, then I’m just left with an OK Star Wars flick to rewatch instead of all these memories. I totally see why people like the pure unspoiled experience, but for me I say bring on the trailers!

          • evan

            That’s what I’m saying! I mean of course one in a million trailers give away the whole movie but that is a risk I am always willing to take. And I mean if the movies biggest secrets and surprises are in the trailers than it probably isn’t even worth seeing anyway.

    • good luck…

      • Drool Bear

        Your gonna need it.

        • lookylookymoontard

          lots of it

    • bushwickisbeautiful

      this is ballsy. read the review of it first. if people are saying it gives nothing away watch it. i dont it spoils much for you.

      • lookylookymoontard

        Yeah but can you all be trusted? Haha

  • Vincent Asaro

    The movie is almost out–seriously, who cares?

    • skysamfreeman

      Anyone who wants to see more footage from it?

      • Vincent Asaro

        You can see the whole movie in a matter of weeks…

          Yes. Weeks.

  • The MacGuffin Guy

    At least give us an official movie poster. This waiting is killing me.

    • InglebertHumperdink1

      you’re going to see this movie a hundred times aren’t you?lol

        Who isn’t? LOL

      • StopDeletingMyPosts

        Only a hundred?

    • daveolden

      You may be happy on Sunday then. Good odds we get the one-sheet then.

  • Steve Martin

    another 13 days, its gonna kill me lol

  • Clone11038

    THIS. IS. EXASPERATING!!!

  • Robb

    Called it. It’s the only date that makes sense. Get people to watch the trailer and then get excited to buy tickets.

  • MilwGuy

    Thank god it’s the Monday AFTER I get paid! Would it be weird to buy tickets for 10 showings in a row? :)

    • lookylookymoontard

      Disney say go for it! haha

      • MilwGuy

        Lord Vader: “Emperor Mickey, what is thy bidding?”
        Emperor Mickey: “Buy tickets for every showing for the next year!”
        Lord Vader: “Yes, my master.”

    • Mathew

      Ha! I was thinking of doing that too – blocking out the whole day (or a few days) and seeing it repeatedly! However, I think it might be best to see it once and then savour it a little bit, then see it again a few days or a week later. Unless it is awful, I’m sure I’ll see it ten times though during its release :)

      • Paul Dameron

        Only 10. And you call yourself a fan…lol :)

        • Mathew

          Actually, I didn’t call myself anything, I just said I’m sure I’ll see it ten times :)

          • Paul Dameron

            OK a non fan seeing it 10 times. I think I saw TPM 14..lol and that wasn’t all that great.

        • MilwGuy

          Hey man, a guy has to shower at SOME point :P

  • Manuel Crowe

    I personally think that this whole secrecy and the fact that they haven’t showed us much is pretty genius. they are getting the reaction they want out for all of us fans. we are dying to see more and find out more. but I truly believe they really doing this FOR us,in the sense that they don’t want to spoil their own movie and want us fans to really be surprised. in a sense they are thinking about us before they are thinking about non fans…let me explain; I do know a lot of people that don’t know Star Wars TFA is coming out or that there was even one coming out in the first place. I agree only “fans” know…but I think that was part of the strategy…this movie was made for us FANS…damn it Kylo Ren I a fan boy…this is all in the strategy. they want US the fans to go watch this movie opening nigt/day/weekend and not have to eat surrounded by people that only went to see it After they saw a hype for it. what is crazy about all this is that even with this…they will still make a lot of money opening night….and THEN…movie goers that aren’t necessarily fans will help build more money and revenue for the film…but not before the real fans for which this movie was made for

    • Thretosix

      Trailer or not I’m seeing this movie. Just sucks saying to a friend, can’t wait for The Force Awakens and you get a “what the heck is that” response. Fans are going to see it regardless. It is not genius if people other than fans don’t show up to see the movie because they had no idea it was released. To me it’s quite the opposite of your comment. Putting a trailer out will not effect people like me in the slightest, it would on the other hand hopefully make people who are unaware… aware. There needs to be an awakening of the trailer. My next movie may be Hunger Games or Spectre, both of which I’ve seen trailers for… a long time ago. If I wasn’t a fan of Star Wars, the movie might as well not exist.

      • Force

        You’ve nailed it. Put the damn trailer out already so I can actually find somebody that knows that another Star Wars movie is coming out in just over 2 months! I don’t know anyone at work (which is a crew of 60 people) any friends, family, neighbours, ANYONE that has a clue that TFA exists. My 6 year old daughter is a huge Star Wars fan (it’s in her DNA) and she’s dressing as Kylo Ren for Halloween. She’s telling me that everyone at school doesn’t know that a new SW movie is coming out and subsequently have no idea who Kylo Ren is. She’s now started to become less excited about seeing the movie because she can’t share her excitement with anyone else she knows except her 35 yr old fanatic father. She told me she’s dressing as Kylo Ren no matter what though because he’s awesome!

    • system1988

      Still. I think they are trying to overhype us just to sell more merchendise. That’s capitalism for you. Still I think the movie is going to be great and not because of the marketing policy and its vague
      ethics.

      • NYJD21

        There’s ‘ethics’ in marketing?

        lol

  • this is all good, one trailer, no more footage etc :)

    I personally think it’s extremely s**tty to post a trailer AFTER tickets go on sale. Sounds like they’re afraid to actually show people what they might be getting BEFORE they buy in, which is a really sleazy sales tactic.

    • GeekFurious

      OR… THIS IS BULLSHIT.

        Grow up.

      Right because we don’t already have enough marketing material to make a choice on.
      Guys, it’s a trailer, not the movie itself.

      • Artakha the Creator

        Two short teaser trailers and a bunch of toys is not enough to make the call of forking over the money for a ticket, at least for the average movie-goer. That may fly for members of the actual fandom, especially the more hardcore ones, but the majority of the masses kinda need a bit more to go on for a decision like that.

      • Adam Walker

        The “we” being Star Wars fans who read Star wars websites on a daily basis are barely a percentage point of the people who are expected to buy the vast majority of tickets for these movies. It’s poor marketing strategy to just expect the random, non-obsessed moviegoer to just buy tickets sight unseen to a movie they know next to nothing about beyond “it’s not the prequels.”

  • GeekFurious

    Why would you put the trailer out on the same day as pre-sales AFTER pre-sales go live? You would use the trailer to promote pre-sales, not pre-sales to promote the trailer. This doesn’t make marketing sense.

    Also:

    “That’s when he told me, verbally,”
    “And he nodded”

    What?

    • Kenny Ritchie

      The initial days of pre-sales will be targeted at the die-hard SW fans. The loyal fans who don’t need convinced by a full trailer to part with their cash.

      • Robb

        This. I think it’s wise to wait for pre-sales to go live before releasing the trailer so that when people DO see the trailer they can immediately go, “TAKE MY MONEY!” and buy tickets. In fact, I expect to see a “tickets now on sale” tagline at the end of the trailer. If you release it early and then do presales the next day some people will inevitably forget.

        • GeekFurious

          No… that’s not what any marketer would ever do. You either use the trailer to promote the pre-sales, or you don’t. You don’t do it this way. This makes no sense. Which is why it won’t happen this way.

          • Ben Hauger

            Couldn’t disagree with you more. Anybody who is going to buy presale tickets already knows the date, time, and theatre they are going to buy those tickets for. The trailer is to promote the new movie for the average movie goer, not the diehards. It will do absolutely nothing to the amount of tickets that are pre sold. Furthermore, ever think Disney is throwing the loyal, lifelong fans a bone by doing it this way? We know about the movie and the presale, which will equate to an opening weekend of movie goers who LOVE the Star Wars Universe, giving those who are truly dying to see this movie the opportunity to be the first ones in the theatre. This will be followed by the average movie goer who just wants to see a good movie and what will hopefully be massive free marketing by word of mouth .

            • Patton

              Sorry I have to agree with GeekFurious. I think we will see very shortly that the Trailer will indeed be used to help boost Pre-Sales.

    • Sylvia Romanoff

      I believe the trailer will come out prior to pre-sales.

  • John Doe

    I have reason to believe that the trailer is actually a mirage in the distance that I’ll never reach.

  • Cole

    Too…far…away….

    • John Doe

      A long way off in a theatre far, far away….

    Here is a petition I found for Disney to bring back the Clone Wars for seasons 7 and 8. https://www.change.org/p/lucasfilm-bring-star-wars-the-clone-wars-season-7-8#petition-letter

    • Marcadimus

      Why? It was a boring and rudderless show.

      • Nathan Hobbs

        I think it was great.

      • Frisk

        No way. Just when it started to become intense they cancelled it.

        • Marcadimus

          Possibly, I couldn’t keep watching it I was so bored. Afterwards I did watch the Ashoka episodes. At least they were intriguing, despite the odd sexual nature of a young female Jedi. Confused why Lucas allowed that. He was so good at treating women characters as the strong people they are.

          • Frisk

            Sexual nature? I must’ve missed that.

            • Marcadimus

              Ashoka barely covers her body with her outfits. Looks like Brittney Spears, not a Jedi.

              • Frisk

                Oh? I never thought about it, despite being a young man with raging urges.

              • Adam Walker

                So a woman who isn’t covered up is “sexual” to you? *eyeroll*

                • Marcadimus

                  If they are dressed like a spring breaker, yes. *eyeroll*
