This is the trailer you were looking for.
That was exciting, wasn’t it? I think it’s obvious that Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) have a big role in the film and likely the rest of the trilogy.
Now that the trailer is out, you may be tempted to rush out and buy tickets for any available show on December 18th (and some the night before). If you do, please use our Fandango link, you’ll get some nice benefits from Fandango and The Disney Blog will get a small financial benefit.
But really, unless you want to make sure you’re first in line for the only giant IMAX screen in your area or there are only a few options in your town period, there is no reason to run out and buy tickets. You can rest assured that cinemas will add theaters once the initial shows sell out. This early purchase option is a smart move by Disney to make sure they have the largest box office opening possible (perhaps ever).
Yeah, there is a great tradition of camping out to see each Star Wars film as early as possible. If that’s your thing, you can still buy your tickets tonight and have that fun. But if you’re okay seeing it after the initial rush is over, you’ll still be able to tweet your excitement to all your friends, trust me. If you’re a little late to the game, I hear Friday mornings are generally great times to see the movie. Kids are still in school and parents are working, so you’ll have an easier time getting tickets.
There have been some rumors of difficulties getting on sites like Fandango or AMC Theatres, but that’s likely on purpose right now. Still I’m sure traffic will be a beast. So don’t give up.
What was your favorite part of the trailer? Will you be buying tickets tonight?
