Rumor: Will Rogue One’s First Teaser Get Attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
With a week to go before the release of the film, it’s unsurprising that all the media’s focus on that Star Wars franchise boils down to The Force Awakens. But what if some major news about next year’s Star Wars movie is being suppressed? That’s what a current rumor implies about the forthcoming Anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!
This rumor comes from Jordan Maison, the editor-in-chief of Cinelinx.

We also got two quotes from Maison when we asked him about this news. When asked about the marketing plan for the movie, he told us this:
Heard marketing has been working on stuff for R1 for a month or so now.
When asked if RO’s teaser was planned to be attached to TFA, he added the following:
I heard that would be the case a few MONTHS ago actually, but not sure if that’s still the plan.
Given that Maison has had a good track record with Star Wars information, the odds that Rogue One‘s teaser may be attached to The Force Awakens (or that it may come out soon afterward) are pretty good. In any case, The Force Awakens is going to be jam-packed with exciting trailers for next year’s high-profile movies, including Star Trek Beyond, X-Men: Apocalypse, Captain America: Civil War, and possibly Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. It seems as though watching all the previews will be nearly as exciting as seeing the movie itself!
