J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy’s “special guests” included the new trio – Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac – who confirmed some of what we’d already heard and/or guessed about their characters. We also got to see the (real!) BB-8 and Artoo, plus their makers, and of course Anthony Daniels, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Peter Mayhew also showed up. I’ll be back later with more, but for now just keep an eye on @clubjade, where I’ve been far more active than on the blog. (Sorry!)
The latest – maybe last? – batch of item reveals for the Celebration Anaheim store are here, and now they include the first bit of The Force Awakens swag. (A portion of the proceeds will go to UNICEF as a part of Force for Change.) There’s also a nifty Rebels crew jacket, some messenger bags, and a few other curiosities.
Earlier today, we got a brief rundown of what may be new trailer for The Force Awakens from Making Star Wars.
Star Wars Underworld also has a trailer report, with a few different details. (MSW has a few things to add to that.) It does involve something that could be familiar to EU fans… (No, not Mara.)
The two descriptions could possibly overlap in spots, as MSW doesn’t get super detailed. (Never forget that rumors can be like a game of telephone, as they often come to us filtered through several different people, each with different interpretations and foci.)
There is a third description that’s floating around, but it’s the same one several spoiler folks dismissed when it first showed up a month ago so I wouldn’t put too much faith in that.
Collider is reporting that the first poster and a second trailer will debut at Celebration Anaheim, at the opening panel with J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy. Sure, it’s a no-brainer, but hey: It’s Monday.
