    If the pattern continues, we can expect to see the trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at half time during Monday Night Football on ESPN this month. If that is the case, one question remains: Which Monday? 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th? Let's take a look back at the history of the last two saga film trailers, see what you had to say in our Twitter poll, and have some fun speculating on when we'll see the trailer, the poster, get tickets, and which movies the trailer might be attached to in theaters.







    [COLOR=#ffcc00; text-decoration: underline]My Trailer Debut Guess: October 14th[/COLOR]



    This lines up with the time frame for The Force Awakens trailer debut, and from what I heard two years ago, The Last Jedi was initially supposed to be on 10/16 until Mark Hamill's infamous tweet about watching football on 10/9 forced their hand. My second guess would be the 21st. That is still two months before the movie opens and gives Disney three weeks separation between this and the launch of Disney+ and The Mandalorian.

    (I could be wrong but) I personally rule out the 7th and 28th because I think this coming weekend will belong to retailers for Triple Force Friday, and there is no reason to bundle that push and the trailer announcement into one weekend. As far as ruling out the 28th, I think they want to keep enough distance from the Disney+ launch and final marketing leading up to The Mandalorian. If you get The Rise of Skywalker poster, trailer, and tickets out by mid-October, that gives them several weeks to market The Mandalorian without a massive shadow cast by Episode IX.





    [COLOR=#ffcc00; text-decoration: underline]Trailer Announcement and Poster Reveal[/COLOR]



    History indicates that an announcement for the trailer should come the day before, on that Sunday morning, likely before or by noon EDT. It is quite possible they debut the poster with the announcement as well. Here are the announcement tweets from the last two saga films, both occurring the day before the trailer premiere, with The Force Awakens tweet having revealed the theatrical poster. Since J.J. Abrams is back, I wouldn't be surprised if the announcement for The Rise of Skywalker also debuts the poster again.

    https://twitter.com/starwars/status/916981505607340037?s=20





    Even Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo took a break from deep cut pop culture references and Transformers drawings to tweet about the upcoming media marketing for the film. Though before you go crazy over his tweet, he cautioned he is merely talking about Force Friday and the Empire Magazine exclusive, not an imminent trailer release.



    https://twitter.com/pablohidalgo/status/1179062039911649281?s=20





    Okay you have read my take, now let's see what you think about this! We polled you on Twitter and here are the results:



    [​IMG]



    [COLOR=#ffcc00; text-decoration: underline]Attachment to a Movie in Theaters[/COLOR]



    In speaking with our friends at Trailer Track, they said the trailer will likely be rated a day or two after it debuts, and then start showing up on trailer ratings boards. While many fans assume the trailer will be attached to Maleficent, Disney doesn't like to attach their PG-13 action movies to PG family films, not as a debut anyway, so it is likely the trailer will be attached elsewhere.

    If the trailer debuts Monday October 7 it could be attached to Gemini Man

    If the trailer debuts Monday October 14, 21, or 28, it could be attached to Terminator: Dark Fate on November 1.

    These are just educated guesses based on historical track records and how things typically go regarding trailers, so the result remains to be seen, but it makes a lot of sense.





    [COLOR=#ffcc00; text-decoration: underline]Ticket Sales Tips [/COLOR]



    Fandango and other ticket apps will likely be promoted as having tickets go on sale once the football game concludes, but don't wait. I have walked down memory lane with fellow fans as I prepare this piece and several of them reminded me that simply refreshing their Fandango apps allowed them to get tickets before the football game even started. So be sure to check and refresh your apps early that day (though a reminder that more showings will likely appear on the schedule when the 'official' ticket launch happens after the game). It is possible they learned their lesson from this and that won't be possible this time around, but it doesn't hurt to try right?



    Will we ever reach this level of excitement again for Star Wars movies? Who knows? But I do know that these next few months will be a very exciting, special, and fun time for us Star Wars fans. So as we prepare for the end of the Skywalkers in the countdown to The Rise of Skywalker, let's try to savor and enjoy the ride.

    So I'm not sure this guy is accurate. He Does a Star Wars podcast on YouTube Kessel Run Radio. Based on his tweets he's at NYCC. And he posted this today on twitter.

    He said that the new Rise of Skywalker Trailer may come out this Monday Night!

    Is this guy accurate and sourceable?

    Unlikely. I never heard of this guy as a leaker (or a YouTuber for that matter) I think we would have gotten an official announcement by now, plus a teaser of the trailer, like TLJ. ESPN would want to heavily promote for MNF. Like, "watch MNF for exclusive first look at a new trailer for TROS! "

    If it's the 14th, they will likely make an announcement early next week and showtimes will start popping up on Fandango toward the end of the week, right?

    Collider stated the 14th about 3 weeks ago. Could be tomorrow or Monday. Who knows?

    As far as I can remember the tickets went on sale after the trailer was released so at some point on the Monday night.

    I'm saying it was known ahead of time the trailer, poster, and ticket sales would be released then, and showtimes started showing up on ticketing sites a few days in advance. You couldn't purchase tickets until then, but you could see what the showtimes were beforehand. So, if it is indeed the 14th, we should know something soon, right? I was hoping it would be the 7th, but that's not looking like the case.

    Of course, they could still surprise us and do something different than the Monday night game.

    Ok that’s s a possibility’s I don’t know how the American ticketing system works I just know that for TFA & TLJ the Tickets became available on Tuesday morning & that’s also when the Showtimes were also released.
    But I can see the advantage of knowing what the showtimes are earlier as it makes organising viewings much easier.

    Yeah they could really mess with us and use the World Series. Game 1 would be Oct 22nd which they really can't do a trailer. It would have to be a spot. So, that's probably not gonna happen. Though why not both? A new trailer at halftime of a MNF game and a new spot with new footage with the World Series.

    It's still kinda early, but I think we would have gotten some kind of official announcement for the MNF trailer by now. I think that Oct 7th is a fake.

    They may run ads during the World Series but the trailer will go to MNF for the simple reason that ESPN broadcasts MNF and Disney owns ESPN. It is a 2 minute commercial they won't have to pay for and will actually help bring in viewers to their own TV program.

    The pattern is clearly set that they show trailers in October on MNF. Anyone claiming to have "inside info" is just a nobody making a guess based on history.

    So MNF at halftime has had these what they are pushing as live musical performances that go for like 5 minutes. What are the chances that instead of just the trailer this one week MNF replaces the mini-concert with "Whats coming in Star Wars this fall" type presentation that shows trailer for TROS as well as Mandalorian and Jedi Fallen Order?

    Those 5 minute performances (which majority of them were lame) is sponsored and paid for by Genesis. Unless Disney made a deal with Genesis, I wouldn't count on it.
