Also, whatever tribute they do for Carrie Fisher, it will probably wreck me.

There will be more interesting segments. They have a ton of time slots that still show coming soon. There will be nerdy material to get me by for a couple of weeks.

Sadly, I'm on a family camping trip Thursday - Saturday the week of Celebration... doubt I will have signal. It's going to be painful knowing there is a trailer out there.

Rumor has it that some TLJ footage is premiering at CinemaCon in Vegas tonight. Disney panel is about to kick off. If so, there's almost no chance it will release online, but descriptions will most definitely hit (again, if this turns out to be true). Will post here with spoiler tags...

I don't think there's much news to keep it afloat at this point. How about in two weeks when the trailer debuts? Seems like the perfect occasion to spin off a solo thread.

And yes, in typing that, it just blew my mind that we're a little over two weeks away. 17 days to be exact. Sneaking up on us fast!

Re: A TLJ thread

I'm no authority here but in my opinion, it would be a good time to start one once the first trailer drops. After that, there may be people who wish to know nothing and may avoid tv spots, merchandising leaks, etc, and we can have this thread in parallel to that one for general speculation and discussion.

That won't be long. First trailer should hit in less than a month, with Celebration looming. Wasn't that when we were to expect one?

I think it's a safe bet that we're going to get it at Celebration. Apparently some footage was shown at Cinemacon.

StarWars.com announced today that at Celebration Orlando, he will be present for all four days of the show, signing autographs and part of some very special programming. On Friday, April 14, fans can attend "Mark Hamill's Tribute to Carrie Fisher," in which the actor remembers the talent, humor, and legacy of his friend and co-star. Sunday, April 16, will see Hamill take the stage solo (no pun intended) for the appropriately titled "Hamill Himself," featuring an hour of anecdotes and audience Q&A.

Forgive me if this has already been discussed, as I have been mostly absent from this thread and never really checked in on the Rogue One thread, but when the Empire closed the planetary blast shield during the Rebel assault on Scarif in Rogue One, why didn't someone just punch in 1-2-3-4-5 to open it back up? I mean, it's the kind of combination an idiot would have on his luggage!
