So far, Disney and Lucasfilm have done a fairly solid job at keeping the promotional materials and marketing for Rogue One – A Star Wars Story fairly consistent throughout the past several months, without releasing all that much footage from the film itself at the same time. With only a few more months to go until its late-December theatrical release though, it looks like we finally know when we can expect to see the final theatrical trailer for the first live-action spin-off Star Wars film in history.
The news comes from the Kino Expo International in Moscow (via Star Wars News Net), where Elena Brodskaya, the marketing director of Disney’s Russian division, has confirmed that the third and final full trailer for Rogue One will be released in conjunction with Doctor Strange this year, the next film from Disney Studios. The Marvel movie is set to hit foreign countries in the end of October, with a November 4th domestic release.
Based on what Disney has done in the past as well, in addition to it just being common practice for most tentpole films as well, I imagine it’ll be shortly after Doctor Strange‘s theatrical release when pre-sale tickets for Rogue One go on sale, so keep your eyes and wallets peeled for sometime around then.
This also fits in line with what The Force Awakens did last year, releasing the final trailer around the middle-to-end of October, and releasing pre-sale tickets for the film the same night, immediately after the trailer was released, proceeding to break basically all of the movie theatre websites available online.
Overall, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise honestly, since Disney is basically the master when it comes to cross-promotion throughout their many, many titles. However, knowing when we can expect the next trailer for Rogue One, especially following the generally well-received last teaser, should come as a relief for all of you fans out there that have been salivating to see more footage from the film.
Doctor Strange is set to hit theatres on November 4th, while Rogue One – A Star Wars Story will be released on December 16th.
