STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Trailer Will Be Available Online Friday Through iTunes

So who bought a ticket to a movie screening this Friday just to catch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer?  Well, it turns out that the 88-second piece won’t be exclusive to theaters.  The teaser will also arrive on iTunes on Friday as well.  But on the bright side, if you did already buy a ticket then you’ll be one of the first to see it on the big screen! The full feature is due in theaters on December 18, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie and many more.

The idea of the trailer hitting theaters before arriving online did seem like a fun, different strategy, but sadly there’s a good chance the whole operation would have blown up in Disney’s face when the piece popped up on YouTube shortly after the first screening.  Regardless, there’s something a bit suspect about this official announcement coming from the Star Wars Twitter account after previous reports likely already compelled many to purchase Big Hero 6 tickets.

But again, the piece will probably be a completely different experience on the big screen, so if you’re still interested in catching the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer in that format, click here to find out where you can see it.
