As you might remember, 10 days ago we reported a rumor about John Williams, starting to work on the Episode VII teaser trailer, which was already sent to him (if you missed that story click HERE). Other sources in the same article suggested that the trailer will probably be officially released this Christmas. Now there’s a huge buzz on the web that we might actually be getting the trailer even sooner. Check out these curious tweets from the last few days after the jump:
First everything started with Peter Sciretta’s tweet:
Re: Star Wars trailer — I have heard we will see it sooner than you might think

And today Jordan Maison from Cinelinx (the guys who recently posted the Obi-Wan trilogy rumors) posted the following curious Tweets.
@Empireoffett yep! Heard from 2 independent sources that’s it’s technically done, and I couldn’t be happier.

Later Jason Ward shared his input on the story:
Hearing more rumblings about a teaser for #StarWarsVII. Still surprised we could have one this early… I need to know more!

Then Jason stirred the pot a bit when he Tweeted this:

If you read the responses you will discover that Jason is implying that the Episode VII teaser could drop with the November 21st release of Hunger Games: Mockingjay (Part 1). Jason isn’t sure as his info is still in development but that’s their insinuation. There is an obvious problem with this speculation being that Hunger Games is a Lionsgate Films franchise NOT related to Disney. As we detailed before, it only makes sense that we will get a teaser so long as Disney can attach it to one of their own films since such marketing dynamite would surely add box office profits to whatever film it would be released with.
This is the same reason why the Interstellar rumor didn’t make sense. However, some would argue that Big Hero 6, slated for a November 7th release is too soon for the trailer to be completed and by now we’d surely have heard if this was the case. And our other speculation was that Into the Woods for Christmas was too late as rumblings are that we’ll see it in November. Disney did have a movie originally slated for November 21st — the Kevin Costner led McFarland — but it was pushed back to February of 2015.
So when will it be? End of November with Hunger Games or end of December with Into the Woods? Or maybe something else? What do you think?
Thanks to Cantina member entourage for the heads up on these tweets.
