This week will be a week long remembered for Star Wars fans worldwide. With Star Wars Celebration Orlando happening this week, plenty of exciting announcements are on the way. In particular, you can take it to the bank that we will see the first trailer for Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi by this Friday.
But interestingly enough, it looks like we don’t have to wait until Thursday’s Star Wars 40th Anniversary Panel to get some exciting news to quench your galactic thirst. It looks like ABC’s Good Morning America is set to showcase a major announcement in honor of the franchise’s 40th Anniversary.

Actors Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Daisy Ridley (Rey) will be together on the program tomorrow morning to share this major announcement to the world.
But what will this announcement be? Are we going to get official word that the first trailer for The Last Jedi will be released this week? Or better yet, will fans finally get the fully restored theatrical cuts of the original trilogy available on home media?
In regards to what will be revealed tomorrow, that will remain subject to debate. Thankfully, Star Wars fans are guaranteed for an enthralling week ahead. In the meantime, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (General Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will come to a galaxy near you on December 15, 2017.
