SALT LAKE CITY — There probably won’t be a “Star Wars” trailer during the Super Bowl this year, Deadline reports.
Early buzz suggested Disney would drop its first trailer for the film, considering that Disney dropped a teaser for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” during last year’s game.
However: According to Deadline, “this year the thinking is that ‘Episode IX’ can feasibly create its own weather whenever Disney decides to launch the trailer; it doesn’t need a big 103 million-viewed event to prop the Dec. 20 release.”Comment on this story
Still: Universal plans to drop a trailer to “Hobbs & Shaw,” the spin-off film to “Fast & Furious” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. The film opens Aug. 2.
Sports: Disney did not confirm to The Hollywood Reporter how many spots the company purchased for the big game. The studio reportedly purchased an “undisclosed” amount of ad spots, according to THR.
