UPDATE! Good Morning America Reveals New Information About Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Readers from the United States might want to tune in to ABC’s Good Morning America on December 1st for a little more information about the new Star Wars movie. The Disney-owned network is apparently unveiling a bit of information on the next installment of the franchise right after the first trailer had a limited run in North American theaters.
The Force is strong with GMA tomorrow! We will have new exclusive details on Star Wars #TheForceAwakens.
While there’s the chance that these “exclusive details” might be information that has already been covered (though not discussed on a wide scale), this is still the first official instance of the movie being promoted on television, meaning that the odds are that Disney could put in a little something extra to tide viewers over. We will be sure to update this page when the details are out.
The show airs at 7:00 AM Eastern Time (and will re-air at 7:00 AM for all subsequent American time zones), and will run for two hours.
The show has now aired, and the hosts seemed to be particularly excited for the film. One detail that they shared was a connection between The Force Awakens and A New Hope: the lightsaber ignition sound that can faintly be heard at the end of the trailer is actually the one that Luke looked at in wonder – in other words, the first lightsaber that many viewers ever saw. They also claim that John Boyega is the lead star of the film – interesting, considering that up until now, it was suggested that Daisy Ridley would have the lead role. They also confirmed that the sinister-sounding voice in the trailer is Andy Serkis, shooting down rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch scored a cameo role in the film.
While this information isn’t too revealing about the film itself, every bit counts. We’ll keep you covered for news about The Force Awakens and other Star Wars media.
