Well, this is some welcome news.
In case you weren’t already aware, next week will be Star Wars Celebration Europe in London, from July 15th-17th with some of the more notable guests including Kathleen Kennedy, Mark Hamill, Rian Johnson, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller. Also attending though, alongside Kennedy in their own panel will be director Gareth Edwards and possibly some of the stars of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The general consensus has been that the second trailer for Rogue One will be released during the panel this year, similar to the second trailer for The Force Awakens in 2015, and it looks like we’ve finally received some confirmation.
Making Star Wars spotted a TV listing for a new Star Wars special set to air on ABC the night of July 15th, which is listed as including a new three-minute trailer for Rogue One. So if that is going to air on ABC at 8pm EST in the US, then that basically confirms that not only should the Celebration attendees expect the premiere to happen at 4pm GMT during the Rogue One panel, but that it will also air on TV for those of you out there not lucky enough to fly to London for the convention.
This is also the first we’ve heard about the Secrets of the Force Awakens special on ABC as well, and it’ll be interesting to see exactly what ends up being. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for all of our Star Wars Celebration coverage next week though, and it looks like we can rest easy knowing that Disney and Lucasfilm won’t be pulling any Hall H shenanigans with the latest trailer for Rogue One.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theatres on December 16th, if they manage to finish reshooting it all by then that is, because you should believe everything you read online.
