Here's When the Final Star Wars Rogue One Trailer Will Be Released
It will accompany Marvel's Doctor Strange.
There will be one final trailer for the upcoming Star Wars spinoff Rogue One ahead of its December release. The news was confirmed by the marketing director of Disney's Russian subdivision, who announced that it would debut with the company's Marvel adventure Doctor Strange.
As reported by Star Wars News Net, Elena Brodskaya revealed the plans for the next Rogue One trailer during a presentation for Disney's upcoming movies, which also include Beauty and the Beast, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Moana.
Brodskaya stated that although many of the film's details would remain secret until the film is released, the final trailer would accompany Doctor Strange. The Marvel film is due to hit Russian theaters on October 28, with the US release following a week later.
Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger attempted to lower expectations in the box office potential of Rogue One. "We never felt it would do the level that Force Awakens did," Iger said during an investor conference. "[But] the level of interest is as high as it was for Force Awakens."
The Disney boss added that he and Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy had mapped out the plans for the franchise until 2020. This includes Episode VIII and IX, a Han Solo spinoff film, and a third spinoff for which a writer has been hired.
"We have movies in development for Star Wars 'til then, and we started talking about what we're going to do in 2021 and beyond," he said. "So, she's not just making a Star Wars movie, she's making a Star Wars universe."
Two trailers for Rogue One have appeared in the past couple of months.The first debuted during the Rio Olympics, while the second was an international teaser that contained footage not seen in the earlier trailer.
Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, and Mads Mikkelsen. It arrives in theaters on December 16, 2016.
