It is November 23 2014 as I write this and I am trying to figure out when the first official trailer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released. People are saying that it will be released sometime this week, which would make way too much sense since it is Thanksgiving week. The Internet is saying that the trailer will be released in select theaters first this Thanksgiving weekend, but who knows, right? Disney could release it Monday morning on the Internet right after I post this entry. My prediction is that it will be released either Tuesday night or Friday on showings of Mockingjay and Interstellar and possibly Horrible Bosses 2. Tuesday seems likely because it is two days before Thanksgiving, which is when the Jurassic World trailer releases. Wednesday seems like a strange day to release, yet not totally unlikely since two or three movies come out then. Plus, the Star Wars producers may want to outshine the Jurassic World movie by showing the trailer a day or two before…or maybe on Thanksgiving to get everyone’s attention on Star Wars instead of Jurassic World. No matter what happens, it will be interesting to see what happens and what the studios do. The Star Wars trailer will probably have an official release date set in the next couple of days since Jurassic World has officially been said to be released on Thanksgiving during a football game.
I would much rather see lightsabers and space battles than civilians running around trying to escape dinosaurs. I hope Abrams really delivers with this Star Wars film and brings Star Wars back on top after so many people despised the prequels, which I did not think were completely terrible. Episode three is in my top three favorite Star Wars movies ever. The third film made the entire series come together well, which I loved.
I imagine the trailer to be epic in all ways possible. It will indicate where the movie will take the series, but will not give away too much, I predict. I hope it has a dark ambiance but I want it to stand out from all of the movies advertising themselves as sometimes too serious. Well, it is Star Wars, so it is going to hopefully be a serious movie and hopefully the start to a great new string of movies. It needs engage the audience right away, which The Phantom Menace failed to do, although it still had qualities that I respected and enjoyed. I love all of the Star Wars movies because they each continue the saga and contribute to the continuing larger plot.
