UPDATED: The Next Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Scheduled for October 19th?
Has there ever been as much anticipation for a trailer as there is for the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? If there has, it was probably when LucasFilm released the last Force Awakens trailer back in April, but fans were only satiated for a matter of weeks before they were hungering for more. But it's now nearly 6 months since we first heard Han Solo grumble the words "Chewie, we're home", and anticipation for more footage is at fever pitch. You may recall that hearing the rumors that tickets for the Force Awakens will go on sale on October 19th and that the new trailer would be the vehicle for said announcement, and while those rumors have not been confirmed, they are starting to look a little more reliable.

Anthony Breznican is a Senior Writer for Entertainment Weekly, and he's a man who is known to have a strong relationship with the people at LucasFilm. So strong in fact, that Breznican was on stage hosting the biggest event of the weekend at this year's Star Wars Celebration. So when someone like that appears to drop a major tease about something on Monday 19th October, it might be time to start engaging your hype drives.


Granted, Breznican's tweet is far from a confirmation that the trailer will be dropping next Monday, but you'd be hard pressed to deny that is does seem like too much of a coincidence to ignore.

UPDATE - 10/14/15 04:35 pm

Cinemark theaters reportedly spilled the beans with this hastily-deleted tweet:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer and tickets coming out on Monday?

I don't speak Spanish, but according to Polygon, the tweet states that pre-order for tickets begins on Monday and fans should run "before the Stormtroopers end up with all the tickets." Can't argue with that logic.

At San Diego Comic Con this year, JJ Abrams teased that a new trailer would be coming in the Fall, and while that's a pretty big window to speculate on, there certainly seems to be mounting evidence that Monday could be the day.

As for the presale date, our sources at the major movie ticketing sites have confirmed that they are yet to receive any information from Disney as to when they will make tickets available. That may all change in the next week, though.
