UPDATE! SOLO: A Star Wars Story EXCLUSIVE Teaser Scheduled to Premiere Monday on GMA After Tease During Super Bowl!

Many rumors are swirling about the teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story debuting this weekend, during the Super Bowl, with Black Panther, everywhere! But now we have confirmation from the source itself, that Good Morning America is scheduled to premiere an exclusive trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story this coming Monday morning!

 

 

The link to buy tickets to attend the Good Morning America live taping had the text “SOLO EXCLUSIVE TRAILER!!!”, and has now since been taken down by the site. There is no doubt Disney has ordered the take down.

 

I first stumbled upon this thanks to a tweet from the canon master Star Wars Explained, Alex Damon:

 

 

 

As you can see, the link once had the text clear as day. It appears the intention was to tease the trailer with a 30 second commercial during the Super Bowl, followed by the full teaser premiere the following morning on Good Morning America. There is no doubt the teaser will still debut during the game, and as of now their plan is to debut the exclusive full clip on Good Morning America Monday morning! We are confident this plan will stay in place.

 

Stay tuned as we will update you with any new information on this! But either way, we should be seeing footage for Solo: A Star Wars Story starting during The Super Bowl this Sunday, followed by the full clip the next morning!

Thanks to Star Wars Explained for the Tweet

UPDATE!

 

And it seems that Ron Howard himself is very anxious about the Super Bowl as well. One could wonder why…

 

 

Furthermore, he retweeted this:

 

 

 

Perhaps he is a fan of the Patriots? It’s funny that the poll our podcast did a few days ago has an even stronger meaning today.

    Gonna poke a hole in part of this theory. There won’t be a GMA advertisement during the Super Bowl in the US. The Super Bowl broadcast is on NBC…..and GMA is on ABC. I just don’t see NBC letting a competing network advertise their morning news show during the Super Bowl

      I think what the theory says is a that a teaser in the super bowl (watch the full trailer tomorrow in GMA) and then the GMA full trailer on monday

      Somthing on this lines

        I don’t see NBC/Universal letting a teaser ad like this on during their broadcast of the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is a chance for them to promote their own properties (i.e. The Today Show). If you were an NBC executive, would you let an ad on the air promoting your competitor’s morning show?

    I’m actually more happy about people shutting up about when the trailer is going to debut than I probably will be with the actual trailer. For some reason people think that a film can’t make up a good marketing campaign in 4 months. Which is totally not true.

    Great news, just crazy that they wouldn’t want to get the full teaser out during the Superbowl, rather than airing it during Good Morning America (lame). Superbowl ad money isn’t an issue, Disney practically prints its own money, so the price of a longer ad spot during the Superbowl shouldn’t really matter, especially with the amount of eyes you’d be able to reach. Ah Well, I’ll take what i can get, just happy the ad push is starting! cant wait for May

      Exxxxxxxxxxxxxx….pensive. Running a two minute trailer during the Superbowl would be crazy expensive, and if they can get the same effect with a teaser (getting the word out about the movie), it just makes more sense. Sure, Disney is loaded, but they didn’t get that way by spending money they don’t need to.

      It’s close to $5 million for a 30 second ad during the superbowl, so let’s assume that the trailer would be around a minute 30 perhaps in between two minutes and you’re looking close to a $15 million dollar ad. That’s an insane amount of money simply to reach mostly American eyes. They’d be better off just paying the $5 million and have everybody tell their friends to go watch the full version online.

            Only if u have no life and thus all the time to play the game and grind out all the perks to the max to have a change against pro players OR u are stupid enough to pay them to achieve the same.

            The even publicly admitted it by saying something like: “there are player with more time than money whil other have more money than time” -> thus they do anything they yet legally can to make those people with less time PAY and PAY a lot.

            Im on the side of more money than time. And im not willing to be abused and forced to pay just to be able to enjoy a SW experience in a SW game.

Whatever EA decides to do next time around by not egregiously trying to rip people off, I’ll take my public thank you in letter form.

        We could only be so lucky. I believe, however, that half these folks that do little more than piss and moan about Star Wars aren’t nearly as disappointed as they proclaim. After all, if you don’t like something that much, you wouldn’t spend so much time talking about it.

        I love quite a bit of Star Trek, but I really don’t care for Voyager. That said, I’m hardly hanging around the Voyager forum endlessly bemoaning its existence.

I undertand that you may not be very practiced in reading anything more than a 25 character Tweet, but a quick scan doesn’t really cut it. Your attempt to discredit and dismiss an opinion you don’t like without doing the work to actually read that opinion isn’t doing your argument any favors. Nor does it magically erase the linked sources.

            Anonymous political speech has a long and proud history going back to the pamphleteers of the American Revolution. Knowledge of my identity isn’t necessary for someone to consider the ideas and facts I present, unless you’re interested in engaging in thoughtless identity politics, in which case I’d refer you to Carl Sagan’s essay entitled The Fine Art of Baloney Detection. And of course one must protect themselves and their family against progressive activists who like to show up on people’s lawns at 4 a.m. in the morning, because they’re unhinged savages who are incapable of controlling their own behavior when confronted with ideas they don’t like.

            In fact, there are no attempts to complain about girls. That’s a mischaracterization that you’re stupidly making up all on your own.

            How could you see anything insightful or original, or not, if you only took a quick scan? How on Earth would you be able to determine that my perspectives are fragile, impotent, and ultimately dismissable without reading them? Do you put any thought into the words you’re typing out? Because while you’re making these silly claims, and obviously practiced in doing so, you do nothing to demonstrate that your claims are true.

            4 am is certainly too early for progressive dimwits to get up, yes. But many of them simply stay up all night or attend such event after getting rip roaring drunk at their favorite hipster dive.

            All you’re doing is throwing out empty insults, and anyone can read up this thread and see how just vapid and unsupported your claims are.

            I understand that you’d rather focus on petty identity poltics rather than genuine ideas, it’s what public education trained unthinking drones such as yourself to do. That’s where the real cowardice lies, because it’s ideas that matter, not identities. And we both know that you have no genuine ideas. You’re all bluster and no substance. But maybe you can explain to us what you might do if you had my identity.

        TFA made 2.1 Billion worldwide, so that’s 800 Billion less for TLJ. We won’t know if it’s a debacle until you see the Box office for Solo and Episode 9. If you continue to see a downward trend then Disney will be upset as after that they are venturing in brand new territory with RJ’s Trilogy. If enough fans who were alienated after TLJ and don’t give his new Trilogy a chance, then TLJ could be the pinnacle of their Box office.

            Star wars isn’t popular in much of Asia outside of Japan, I’ve lived there and not many people really know what it is. Of course it will make less than TFA as the hype was huge for TFA, non-fans who didn’t enjoy it is unlikely to go back and watch the next movie. It’s equally unlikely that anyone who didn’t see TFA in the cinema will go watch the next movie, so returns were sure to be less, quality of movie aside.

            Although TLJ is certainly not the best loved star wars, it’s been well documented that fan ratings can be manipulated and that may have been the case. Aside from which people are more likely to leave a bad review for something they hated than a good review for something they liked.

            TLJ may not have met your expectations, but raging about it constantly in some kind of attempt to convince those who enjoyed it that it’s a bad movie, just kind of makes you come across as a bit of a jerk.

            What’s your point? China doesn’t always like what we like, as much as we never gave Wolf Warrior 2 a chance. China doesn’t have the nostalgic connection we do.

            And the fan rating issue has been discussed to death. An entitled fan who demanded something different but immediately familar, such as yourself, taken out of their comfort zone, spammed rotten tomatoes to lower the rating. Critic reviews were very strong.

          The MCU have released 17 movies. Only 4 have crossed the $1bn mark. SW has released 3 movies, which have made a combined $4.5bn at the box office. That’s an average of $1.5bn per movie. Contrast that with Marvel that is an average of $795 million per move (around half of SW).

          Even with the “backlash”, The Last Jedi still made $1.3bn at the box office.

          They’ll not be another $2bn SW movie for a very long time. Let’s face it, TFA over performed. There doesn’t need to be, as the MCU business model has proven.

            Exactly! It’s about peaks and troughs. The stronger films carry the weaker ones.

            But SW has to be exceptional. It has to be an upwards trajectory, otherwise Kennedy is finished, or something like that, that the “real SW fans” chant endlessly to themselves as they beat themselves off, under their shrine to George Lucas.

          TFA did triple RotS. TFA was an anomaly. There was no way any other movies was going to do that kind of box office. If each movie does a billion, that’s good enough. Most of the MCU doesn’t break a billion and they are considered successes.

        Well they should. Its a difference to make 1.3B on TLJ and 40% less on the related toys and probably even less on another movies comparing to 1.6B, good toy/complimentary stuff sales, 1B for every next SW movie guarantee

        The biggest problem of TLJ is what i has done to the brand and thats when they loose a big pile of money – unfortunately for us we wont be presented with the financial numbers to point this out but the suits at #Di$ney and their shareholders will feel it.

          “…40% less on the related toys…”

          That tells precious little about the success of The Last Jedi as a quality movie (which I believe it is). Action figures and related toys have fought an increasingly difficult battle over the last several years. Their decline in sales is due to a variety of factors. Here are just a few:

          1. Children today simply aren’t interested in action figure toys in the way that the OT generation was. Video games and other electronically interactive toys command much of their attention – and parents’ money. Responding that the toys would sell like gangbusters if only the movie was “good” is pure conjecture that ignores the reality of the contemporary toy market.

          2. Major toy retailers like Toys R Us have had some rough years and consequently ordered far fewer of these toys than in previous years.

          3. A good chunk of the Star Wars action figure toy market after the relaunch of the line in 1995 were adult collectors. After 23 years, one can expect many of them to no longer collect these items. In addition, there are a great many more options for adult collectors: higher end figures and statues, model kits, etc. I know several folks that were diehard Star Wars action figure collectors who have gravitated toward other avenues of expressing their fandom.

            You may believe that The Last Jedi is a quality movie, but the actual reality is that it isn’t. It’s shoddy film craft, and fan fic writing at its worst. But hey, some folks like Dom Perignon. Others like Mad Dog 20 20. To each their own.

            Incidentally the actual figure is 47 percent, as reported by Hollywood Reporter.

            1. What are you basing this determination on? Avengers action figures seem to be selling just fine.

            2. Toys R Us is filing for bankruptcy and closing 182 stores. Some are attributing that bankruptcy partially to Star Wars merchandise that doesn’t sell. Multiple videos on YouTube show Star Wars merchandise on the shelves not moving, even merchandise from Rogue One and Episode VII which is still sitting there.

            3. What are you basing this determination on? Many adult collectors have expressed no desire to purchase the new toys because of their lack of quality. Furthermore, in many cases there’s no reason to. The characters don’t change costumes from scene to scene or even movie to movie. So if you bought the Finn figure from Episode VII, what’s the sense in purchasing the Finn figure from Episode VIII when it’s pretty much exactly the same?

            The following assessment is much more realistic:

            “You may believe that The Last Jedi is a quality movie, but the actual reality is that it isn’t.”

            In reality, art is subjective and definitively claiming a film to be “in reality” good or bad suggests an incredibly juvenile perspective on such things. I could argue circles around you why not only is The Last Jedi a good movie, but perhaps the best Star Wars movie since ROTJ.

            But if you can’t bring a horse to water, I can’t explain color to the colorblind.

            The notion that art is subjective is an uneducated position to take. The idea that art is whatever we want is an idea pushed by the dippie hippies from the flatulent 1960s, and represents how public education is facilitating societal degradation.

            Once upon a time, the ability to sketch figures and landscapes and buildings was part of a standard education. In many journals from esplorers the 20th Century and earlier, you’ll find competent sketch work. They were trained to do this, because it’s a skillset with trainable rules. Perspective and anatomy drawing have specific guidelines that one can be trained to engage in. The same goes for composition and color theory. The artist worth his salt is the one who understands the rules of tertiary colors, among other things such as heirarchy. So there’s a kind of visual grammar an educated artist adheres to.

            Likewise in photography, we have things such as the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio to help map out compositions. In film work we have things such as the 180 degree rule, the distinction between jump cuts, the montage, the cross cut, eyeline match, POV shots and so on and so forth. We have the thre point lighting system and variations thereof. We have David Murch’s Rule of six and David Mamet’s 8 rules of Ruthless Editing to guide the hand in film editing. There are specific structures that a screenplay adheres to, the setup, the opportunity, the new situation, the change of plans, major set back, etc. It’s generally commonplace today to have a major attention grabbing action sequence in the first 10 oages of a screenplay. For attaining certain styles one can look to guidelines such as Dogme 95.

            So to say that art is entirely subjective, one must be oblivious to the objective standards that guide competent art.

            Sure one can hang a velvet Elvis in their living room and love it. But that doesn’t make it good art. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of bad movies that I thoroughly enjoy. But I’m objective enough to admit to their horribleness.

            The primary problem you’re having here is that you’re debating not only a film graduate, but a professional in the field. Colorblind indeed. Ha!

            That’s utter nonsense. Art is always subjective. Always. You can bend your perspective on art around a very conservative worldview, but its objectivity exist beyond your limited way of viewing things.

            Yeah, I know. And I think you’re wrong. You set whatever standards you want in terms of how you choose to judge art, but nobody is required to recognize those standards. You’re standards won’t mean squat to those coming from backgrounds and experiences different than your own. It’s time to get used to it. My grandparents thought rock-n-roll was the absolute worst thing in the world. In their worldview, Elvis and the Beatles defied every single objective standard that existed in terms of judging music. My parents thought the same thing about hip-hop. Turns out it doesn’t matter. Art will flourish despite whatever often arbitrary standards others attempt to codify.

            And i can only hope that all the people who dislike TLJ will do the same -> pay for the movie only if they like it.

It would be interesting if they just didn’t advertise at all and we all had to go in cold

          Sure I can. In fact, that’s precisely what I did. Lord and Miller were replaced because Lucasfilm wasn’t happy with what they were seeing. Ron Howard was brought in and a certain amount of the film was reshot. There you go. If anything, this shows that Lucasfilm is interested in delivering a quality product and will go to great lengths to do so. So yeah, this constant prattle about how bad this movie is destined to be is exactly what I said it was: Internet rumermongering.

            I honestly don’t think you know what a rumor is what facts are. Let’s run through it shall we? Rumor = “I heard Alden had to get an acting coach brought in”. Fact = Lord and Miller were fired from the movie with 2 weeks of shooting left. If you aren’t familiar with the movie making process, this is absolutely something that doesn’t happen. Something went very wrong. Yes, Lucasfilm came in and made the change because it’s not in the business for putting out bad movies, but being concerned about the tonal shifts and the direction of the film in light of the FACTS is legitimate. That being said, we haven’t seen even an official picture yet, but the facts of the behind the scene drama are doing this film zero favors.

            I understand it perfectly. I don’t need you to explain it to me. You are, however, sort of supporting what I’m saying. You recognize that Lucasfilm stepped in to force the adjustments that they felt the movie needed. The fact that these changes were made later than normal into the movie’s production are completely irrelevant. The changes were made and ultimately that’s what matters.

            Bemoaning the fact that this movie is “destined for failure” or that “Disney has no faith in the film” and other such nonsense is a gross distortion of what we can actually ascertain about this production.

            It’s not irrelevant due to the fact that the release schedule did not change for the film. They were not operating under normal circumstances. I never said that this movie was destined to fail or trying to suggest that Disney has no faith in the film, all I am saying is that there are legitimate concerns about the quality of the film because of the facts of the drastic changes that happened behind the scenes and during the production. That is all I am saying. Let’s wait and see the trailer to see if those concerns are valid or not. But right now, today those concerns are real and valid because of facts.

            Nice try. It’s still irrelevant. If Lucasfilm didn’t have the resources to make these corrections on time, the movie would have been delayed. But in such a situation, it’s not too difficult to imagine that with the resources that Lucasfilm and Disney have access to, they could muster up what was needed to meet a challenging schedule.

            But for most folks, it’s probably more fun and dramatic to overreact and proclaim the movie’s demise.

            Having the resources to meet challenging schedule =/= the reason for the challenging schedule in the first place to not be a concern. Please find anywhere I said it’s going to be the downfall of the movie. There are valid concerns about the film, because of the facts of what has happened behind the scenes. Reading comprehension man, learn it.

            I’m sorry, were we even talking about you? I certainly wasn’t. It’s not all about you, young fella. If you’ve been oblivious to the doom-and-gloom on this website regarding Solo, then I’d not so subtly suggest that your’e the one with reading comprehension issues.

            And none of this is about valid concerns, I’m talking about unfounded predictions that the movie is going to be a disaster. Again, absorb some of your own advice.

      Chris Pine managed to pull off playing Kirk, playing the character as his own while honoring Shatner’s performance. I think this is the example Alden has to at least meet.

        As long as Solo is a GOOD film that legitimately “Feels Star Wars” – then complaints will be minimal. If it feel more like an Anime meets Harry Potter (ala Last Jedi), then YES we will all hate it. 🙂

          What “feels” Star Wars is largely subjective. I don’t watch anime and I’ve not seen Harry Potter so I can’t speak to any of that.

          But still, I doubt “we will all hate it.” Man, do you ever see anything in nuanced terms? Everything with you seems to be expressed in absolutes. Are you that big of a group thinker?

            I have seen anime and Harry Potter and I really fail to see how TLJ can be compared to the two. Sure, the Force seems to have got a bit of a quasi-magical upgrade, but it’s nothing that didn’t already exist in the old EU or doesn’t build upon what we’ve already seen in the previous films.

            When it comes to nuance, I’m pretty sure Kent is letting out his inner Sith on this one.

          Iiiiiiiim not sure if i want to see Boba in this movie. I dont like the way they portrait him in the “new” canon comix where he murders everything in his way – even poor jawas – this feels soooo out of his character.
          Int the good old comix he had no problems to toss some credit here and there for a good information OR he gets it for free just out of respect before him.
          In the comix where he was tasked by Vader to find who destroyed the Death Star he was just a stupid murder with no honor.
          So im afraid they will continue to fk up this character.
          If u want to see Boba in action, go end read the comix “Blood Ties”

            Here’s the way I look at it. We wont know until they try. Until then, hope for the best! Lots of movies get things wrong but sometimes they nail it too. Who knows? I mean when we really break it down he’s a guy with like 5 minutes on film. Sure some books took a few stabs but who is Fett really? Everyone is going to have a different take.

            Yea I don’t know why they made him so violent but maybe that was his early days and he learned later not to be so aggressive and use his other skills like sabotage and spying and being an assassin more than brute force. But if he is in the movie I hope he is a worthy villain. He would be very young tho

            I don’t read the comics, but has Fett every really been a non-violent character? He’s a bounty hunter who works for Jabba the Hutt and is bristling with weapons.

            What are you seeing that is so different from the Fett from the OT? Again, I have not read the comics so I’m not sure what they’ve done with him.

            Yes, there are comix where he is really not killing when its not necessary. He investigates simply by asking. In Boba Fett: Agent of doom hes accepting a bounty for 100 credits just to prove hes the best. In Blod Ties he even accepts 4 credit bounty on a head of a insane sadistic crime lord just out of justice – the beast Boba comix. In another (cant look it right now) he leaves a bounty hunter live after hes attempting to kill him – just to prove he will be only number 2 🙂 Boba is killing with his hands half naked in this one as far i remember coz his armor is at repair.

            In the comics they make him like the punisher. Like a brutal killing machine without hesitation. He is more calculated and calm than that. He broke aliens arms and killed rodians just to get the name is skywalker. I don’t think that’s how fett in the movies would do it

            Ah. Okay. I guess I never saw Fett as someone who wouldn’t resort to violence to get what he wanted. I mean, I wouldn’t expect him to walk into a cantina and open fire for kicks, but breaking an arm or two to get some information certainly seemed in character with who he was. He’s a bounty hunter, not some grey-area anti-hero. Ah well.

      I’m kind of vaguely hoping they’ll digitally jizz Harrison Ford’s face over his, like they did with Tarkin’s for Rogue One. I’m pretty sure they won’t have, but if bares little resemblance to Han Solo then I may struggle to get used to him as being Han. Then again, I could just not wear my glasses and illusion secured.
