It’s only two months until the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and here’s some big news that you need to know about ASAP!
It’s actually been 6 whole months since the last trailer for the new Star Wars was released, but sources suggest that there could be a third, and possibly final trailer landing in mid-October.
Back in July, director J.J. Abrams said that the third trailer would hit in fall 2015, and some people even suggest that, now that we’re into autumn, it could come by next Monday, October 19.
They also suggest that the new trailer could be a full-length trailer including plot details, unlike the two teasers we’ve already got, so watch out next week for potential shots of Luke and Leia, Kylo Ren in the flesh; who knows?
Tickets Release Date
At starwars7news.com, they also think that October 19 will be the trailer release date because it’s likely to coincide with the day that tickets go on sale worldwide for Episode VII.
The seventh instalment in the series hits cinemas in the US on December 18, but in France it arrives on the 16th, and the UK on the 17th, and with such high demand for tickets, people are going to need to book in advance to catch the earliest possible showing.
Effectively two whole months for tickets to be sold is a long time, as Spectre’s only went on sale 6 weeks before release, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 about 7 weeks, but with such high anticipation, Disney may have to set aside some time for fans to book their tickets.
I advise you to register for a ticket alert from one of your local cinema chains, which can be done on their website if you give your email address or mobile phone number.
Running Time Confirmed?
Earlier in the year, J.J. Abrams suggested that the running time for the new Star Wars was going to be around 124 minutes, the same as The Empire Strikes Back.
That would be pretty good, considering a major issue with the prequel trilogy was that they went on a bit too long. However, at followingthenerd.com, it’s been revealed that the running time is actually set to be 136 minutes, just six minutes short of the abismal Attack Of The Clones.
Also, the website has reported that the age rating in the UK is confirmed to be 12A, which effectively guarantees it to be PG-13 in the US, so everyone will be able to experience what is hopefully going to be an incredible film!
