Even a Jedi can make a mistake. Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, appeared to accidentally unveil the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer release date on Tuesday morning.
Hamill was asked by a fan on Twitter when we could expect the second Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, and he unveiled a very specific time and place:
The above tweet is a screenshot. Hamill deleted the tweet shortly after posting it. Either Disney/Lucasfilm asked him to take it down, or he realized he shouldn’t have been the person to reveal the news.
So it appears to be set for Monday, October 9th’s big Monday Night Football game on ABC, a network owned by Disney. Considering how specific he was, this would appear to be the official time and place of the new Last Jedi trailer. We expect it’ll be released online as soon as it airs (And we’ll of course post it here!).
Fans have been getting anxious to see more from the world of The Last Jedi. The film’s theatrical release is only three months away: December 15. The first and only trailer was released back in April (below), though we’ve also received a couple behind-the-scenes previews.
The ninth part of the overarching Star Wars series stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.
