With the release of the final film in the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, just over two months away, we're currently in the calm before the storm until all the hype begins. While the first trailer for the sci-fi film debuted at Star Wars Celebration in April, the franchise has, for the exception of brief footage at the D23 Expo, been relatively quiet since then...too quiet.
But it looks like we could be just days away from that all changing, as a particularly well connected person just announced on social media that the next trailer will drop during Monday Night Football. As reported by ComicBook.com, Finn actor John Boyega's agent, Femi Oguns, took to Instagram this week with the news, adding that "it's official."
While Oguns was not explicit on which Monday night he was referring to, one can only assume he means next week on Oct. 14. However, fans in his comments section have been weighing in, speculating the trailer could actually drop on Monday, Oct. 21, which happens to be the late Carrie Fisher's birthday. The iconic actress played the role of Leia Organa since the debut Star Wars film in 1977.
Although an Oct. 21 release would be a special way to commemorate the life of Fisher, I think as long as the trailer drops soon, fans will be happy. Here's to hoping Oguns' post holds any truth.
