Is Anthony Daniels teasing the Star Wars: Episode IX trailer?

February 6th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Could we be close to getting the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode IX?

C3PO actor Anthony Daniels took to Twitter  to share a rather teasing message:

Now, obviously this could be anything, but given that we know Daniels has finished filming on the movie – and likely as C3PO forever – we think it’s likely Disney/Lucasfilm might give him the honour of sharing the first look at the highly anticipated (even after The Last Jedi) sequel.

We’ll have to wait and see… but something is coming.

Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams. Carrie Fisher will appear as General Leia Organa through the use of previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Star Wars: Episode IX will be released in theaters on December 19, 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
