D23 Will Not Have a New LAST JEDI Trailer

D23 Will Not Have a New LAST JEDI Trailer

This April, Lucasfilm premiered the first trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. With the film coming out in 6 months, many nerds had assumed that this month’s D23 Expo would give us the next taste of Rian Johnson‘s take on the franchise. However, it turns out D23 will not feature a new trailer. Today on Nerdist News Talks Back, Host Jessica Chobot, Managing Editor Alicia Lutes, and Senior Editor Dan Casey discuss Thor: Ragnarok, San Diego Comic-Con, and what to expect from D23.

The Last Jedi may not be getting a new trailer, but Thor: Ragnarok is! The newest TV spot does not contain much new footage, but honestly we’ll take every bit we can get of Taika Waititi‘s film. The first two Thor movies are among the least well-received movies in the MCU, but they’re still fun, and Chris Hemsworth is a gem. Ragnarok looks like it’s ditching the previous film’s attempts at a Shakesperean epic in favor of a fun, colorful romp around the galaxy, and we think it’s the perfect direction to take Thor.

San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner, so you may be wondering what geekery Nerdist will be bringing to the table. Well, worry no longer. Just like last year, we will be hosting Conival, your one-stop-shop for all things Nerdist and Geek & Sundry. For more details on what exactly you can expect from us, click here. And for what you can expect from Comic-Con in general, click here. Whether or not you’ll be with us at the convention, there are sure to be tons of announcements, so keep your eyes and ears open.

The week before Comic-Con is Disney’s D23, which is almost more than our little hearts can take! Rather than show a trailer #2 for The Last Jedi, it appears we’ll just be getting a behind-the-scenes look at the film. Still cool, but hopefully the next trailer will drop soon. There are more Star Wars films in the works, though. We’ll likely hear some more info about Han Solo, but the big question is whether or not the next standalone anthology film will be announced. Marvel is a bit more of a known quantity, since they will not be announcing more movies until Avengers 4 is out. They might completely surprise us by showing something from Avengers: Infinity Warthough. You never know.
