WATCH: JJ Abrams confirms TV Spot but no more trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

October 28th, 2015 by Marc Comments


In a new brief interview with JJ Abrams, the director confirmed what we pretty much expected… there’s no more Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers coming; but there will be TV Spot.

In the interview (below) Abrams said: “We’re getting very close, the next thing’s really gonna be the movie. There will be commercials, but no more trailers… We’ve all been working really hard to give people something  that will be special to them. Our fingers are just very tightly crossed that when people see the movie they’ll like it.”

We’re delighted to hear that Abrams and Disney/Lucasfilm won’t be releasing any more trailer because recently movies have been suffering from so many trailers that the movie was almost spoiled by the time people see it. We would even be happy with no TV Spots… or at least ones that just show what we’ve seen in the three trailers already. We’ve put all three below for your viewing pleasure:

Do you agree?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and features a new generation of swashbuckling heroes and shadowy villains, as well as the return of fan-favorite smugglers, princesses, and Jedi.

Starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anderson, Christina Chong and Miltos Yerolemou, the J.J. Abrams-directed film will debut in theaters on December 18, 2015.

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….
