The Star Wars Force Awakens Comic Con Panel Won't Show Any New Footage
It looks like Warner Bros. really will dominate all of the biggest moments of San Diego Comic Con. According to a new, the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel will not include a new trailer/teaser, or even any new clips from the film. 

The report comes from EW, who apparently isn't afraid to dash rabid Star Wars fans' dreams:

The presentation this Friday afternoon will not include a trailer or any new clips of the movie. The next trailer will be coming in the fall, according to sources with knowledge of the project.
Closing quote


It looks like fans will just have to keep re-watching "Chewie we're home" into oblivion:



It makes sense that Star Wars would wait on releasing the next trailer, as unveiling it this weekend would mean sharing the news cycle with DC heavy hitters like Batman v Superman, Justice League, and almost every superhero show on TV right now. Although EW claimed that the next trailer will be released in the fall, we're betting that they'll show it at Disney's D23 Expo in August. Just as they released the last trailer at Star Wars Celebration, unveiling the next trailer at a Disney event would mean they don't have to share any of the spotlight.

But that doesn't mean that Star Wars fans will want to miss the Force Awakens panel at Comic Con, as it will feature an inside look at the relatively secretive production from director J.J. Abrams, head of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy, and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, as well as a few surprise guests. EW claims that these surprise guests will include "several actors who haven't yet spoken publicly about their roles," so we're keeping our fingers crossed for Adam Driver and/or Gwendoline Christie. 

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel at San Diego Comic Con will take place on Friday, July 10 at 5:30 pm in Hall H. The film comes out in theaters on December 18.
