'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Won't Be at Comic-Con 2017

Postado Julho 03, 2017

Usually, some kind of sneak peek is unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con. However, that may not necessarily be bad news, because it means we'll likely get a big reveal from the next chapter in the Star Wars saga sooner than later. Just as with An Englishman in San Diego, we reached out to Lucasfilm Publicity, who confirmed that "our presence at SDCC 2017 will be focused on our booth on the convention floor, so there will be no press events or interview opportunities this year".

Star Wars fans around the world have gone to great lengths to memorialize Carrie Fisher, who passed away in December of a year ago.

As io9's Germain Lussier reported on our podcast earlier this week, Star Wars: The Last Jedi won't be getting a panel at San Diego this year. Though Star Wars: The Force Awakens made a splash at the convention in 2015 with an awesome panel and a surprise outdoor concert afterwards, that was done partly as a celebration of Star Wars' first appearance at Comic-Con back in 1976.

What's more, though, is that the annual D23 Expo - an event put on by Disney - is taking place a week before Comic-Con, so it'd make sense to simply reveal anything new or noteworthy there instead. For an idea of what to expect, check out the full schedule of panels right here.
