Well, obviously. Between now and December, the trailer would have to be on the way, and “soon” could be any time. But the folks over at Making Star Wars seem to believe that a trailer for the next installment in the Skywalker saga is on the way. How is this? Well, let’s start digging into Star Wars: Episode IX.
Take this with a massive grain of, you guessed it, red salt courtesy of The Last Jedi, but according to the “sources” in correspondence with Making Star Wars, a trailer has reportedly been cut. However, no telling yet if this is just a rough version or the actual cut of the trailer that fans and moviegoers alike will get to see. The people at Making Star Wars are adamant, though, that one does exist, but they can’t say for sure if that will be the one that viewers get to see.
The speculation continues from there to discuss new set photos. And these photos that may hint at a second Starkiller base. So if The Force Awakens wasn’t similar enough to A New Hope, perhaps J.J. Abrams is turning Episode IX into his homage to Return of the Jedi. But who knows? After the reaction to The Last Jedi, perhaps Abrams has some real surprises in store for both sides of the fandom.
But then, this is the House of Mouse and Star Wars, alongside Avengers, is one of its biggest properties. So a trailer or even a teaser would have to make a huge splash in a big way. So when do you think we’ll get the first tease for Star Wars: Episode IX? Let us know in the comments below.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Joonas Suotamo, Richard E. Grant, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Jimmy Vee, Greg Grunberg, Dominic Monaghan and Matt Smith.
The film will blast its way into theaters on December 20, 2019.

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
