The 88 seconds of footage will drop on iTunes as well as in select theaters as previously announced
Never fear, “Star Wars” fans who don’t live near one of 30 theaters that will premiere the first trailer over Thanksgiving weekend.
The official “Star Wars” Twitter handle announced Wednesday that in addition to the previously announced big screen showings of the first 88-second teaser trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” it will also be unveiled online.
That means the vast majority of “Star Wars” fans from around the country and the world will be seeing the trailer on their computers instead of on a big screen — but at least they’ll get to see it.
“The Force is with you on #BlackFriday when #TheForceAwakens teaser hits @iTunesTrailers,” the “Star Wars” team tweeted.
In Los Angeles, the AMC Century City will have the trailer, as will Disney’s own El Capitan theater in Hollywood.
Decades after the events of the first George Lucas trilogy, the new film welcomes back Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. But it will be led by newcomers including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver.
The trailer will also start going wide in movie theaters in December. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will be released on Dec 18, 2015.
