    If a recent rumor is to be believed, Star Wars fans may be in for a holiday treat in the days ahead. According to the folks at Collider, we may be getting our first glimpse of Episode IX before the end of the year.



    When we were kids, my sister and I sometimes got to open one of our Christmas presents early, and the excitement I felt then is akin to the excitement I'm feeling now at the prospect of some Episode IX footage. So maybe we'll all get an early present this year in the form of a Star Wars teaser. At this point, a December without a Star Wars movie feels off anyway, so it will be great to see a little something this month.



    A few days ago, Collider's Steven Weintraub posted this:








    While the tweet didn't sound like a full confirmation of the footage, today our friends from Jedi Council posted their latest episode with confidence that Episode IX footage is indeed coming:

    Also, our friend Jordan Maison from Cinelinx shared that he also has heard some rumors from his sources:








    We'll have to wait and see if this pans out, but I for one am super excited to see what J. J. Abrams and the gurus at Lucasfilm have been working on with the final chapter of the sequel trilogy. Maybe we'll at least get a title announcement soon. Weintraub definitely has his connections in Hollywood, so here's to hoping his info is on point!

    I have a hard time believing this rumour, but it would be amazing if it panned out. On the one hand they have no reasons to promote IX yet and the proven TLJ-type cycle makes enough sense to stick to it. On the other hand, though, they didn't want previous promo cycles to overlap and with no movie coming out this December anything is possible (theoretically).

    I still put my money on title reveal in January/February and the first teaser at Celebration. :p

    Mary Poppins would be the first possible film it could be attached to but I think that would be wishful thinking for fans. I think the March release of Captain Marvel is the earliest we will get a teaser unless we are really lucky as fans.

    Hard to say. It makes sense for them to hold it until celebration, but I have a feeling they are going to try and hype the heck out of this one. That said, if it were me, I'd do a teaser, maybe one minute long with a title reveal this Christmas. I'd do a second teaser, about 1 minute and 30 seconds for the Super Bowl. Then do a full trailer at Celebration and then one final trailer next fall.

    If we get one it will be short. Something to wet our appetites. Probably something similar to what we got with TFA on Black Friday

    The teaser for Episode VII came a year early. So I wouldn't rule it out. Since there is no SW movie this December, we need some kind of Christmas gift from Lucasfilm. I really think we will get a title announcement at least. I'll be happy with that.

    If they give us a teaser, cool, but I hope they would rather wait until January or February when they have more principal photography done and ILM has time to get a little bit more VFX work done so they have a good choice of clips they can possibly share with us. I will never say never when there are rumors out of nowhere from Weintraub that something is amiss, but he's also missed a few marks in the past. Then again, he would not stick his neck out on the line for his career with a property this large unless he knows something for sure. I have an inkling that we are definitely getting something. Maybe it's just a behind the scenes hype up video. It would be cool to see a BTS reel first for a change. Kind of like the Rian Johnson "Now In Production" video, but something extended and mild on any spoilers.

    For reference looking back on VIII:

    I hope we get something soon, but I find it hard to believe. Do they really need to hype it before they have something decent to show? Although behind the scenes are fine it would be great to have something more than that and maybe a title.

    I don’t follow the making of the Marvel movies to closely but if I remember correctly one of the movies (one of the Avengers maybe) had just started filming and had a teaser shown at Comicon. If Marvel was a able to do that, Lucasfilm should have enough footage to give us something small teaser if they do choose

    It does seem very early, considering how long it took before they showed footage for the last 3 movies. But it's not impossible that they want to stirr up some buzz earlier since we don't get a movie this christmas. I have no opinion about the source or it's credibility, but it would surprise me if it happens.

    A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one(sorry).

    I need a star wars teaser in my life. Especially after getting spammed with MCU trailers.

    Like I said elsewhere, I believe it may be just a montage of scenes from ep I to VIII to launch IX as the final chapter of the saga
    plus the reveal of the title only. December vs January makes no difference really.

    I’m totally alright if it’s just a montage of scenes from the previous films and the title at the end. But I’m not expecting anything this year — if it happens, it’ll be an amazing Christmas gift. But I don’t want to get my hopes up. I wasn’t expecting anything until January or February, to be honest.

    I know with The Force Awakens, they did a small teaser on Black Friday the year before, and with The Last Jedi, they did the production announcement video with the brief footage of Rey and Luke. So, part of me feels like they might give us something, but it also seems so early. I was genuinely surprised we got the Avengers: Endgame trailer as early as we did. I don’t know what they have up their sleeve. But I highly doubt they’ll give us a full teaser. They’re going to want to reveal new footage pretty sparingly, I would think, and Celebration is too good of an opportunity to not unveil the first real teaser there. But a brief Saga tribute teaser with the title reveal would still be super cool.
