Star Wars: San Diego Comic-Con Panel Date and Time Announced


The 2015 San Diego Comic-Con is just over a week away, starting on July 8, and ending on July 12. Perhaps the most anticipated panels at SDCC this year, is the Disney/Lucasfilm Panel which is really all about Star Wars and the newest films that are slated for release in the very near future. Specifically, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which Lucasfilm has promised an exclusive new look at the film…perhaps in the form of an official new trailer.

Star Wars Celebration 2015

Star Wars will take over the main stage of SDCC — Hall H — on Friday July 10, from 5:30 pm  to 6:30 pm. The man himself, J.J. Abrams will be on hand, as well as Lucasfilm President and Executive Producer Kathleen Kennedy, along with the writer of the film, Lawrence Kasdan. This could be the big moment for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as that promised potential new look at the film could happen then…in fact I would say it’s quite likely it will happen.

If there is a new trailer shown, there are a few things that fans are clamoring to see.

  • More of Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma.
  • A first look at Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke (Although given J.J. Abrams’ proclivity for keeping big reveals secret right up until the moment they happen on film, will probably take place here. See Cloverfield).
  • An actual look at Luke’s face. So far, we’ve only seen his robotic hand reaching out to R2.
  • A full look at Leia. Our only glimpse of her has been a hand receiving a lightsaber.
  • Maz Kanata. The MOCAP alien played by Lupita Nyong’o.
  • Max von Sidow in some fashion. Lay the rumors to rest. Is he elderly Boba Fett? Is he a former and disenfranchised Star Destroyer Admiral or Grand Moff who has now become the “Vicar” of the Jakku settlement?
  • More Kylo Ren being Kylo Ren. The Sith Lord has garnered much attention, and has been part of the draw of both teaser trailers, thus far.
  • Finally, the real hope is, let this be a full length trailer and not a teaser. Show us the Star Wars universe as J.J. Abrams has imagined it.

Whether or not these things happen, the fact that Lucasfilm will be holding court in Hall H, can only mean that they will be bringing some serious heat. And, Disney needs this to happen, especially since Marvel has famously pulled out of the this year’s SDCC, leaving a huge void that can only be filled with some major Star Wars hype.
