    Sorry for the confusion on my part. Yes, this is what I was referring to. So the first teaser was released about 2 months after production began.

    Thank you!

    A teaser equivalent to the episode 7 teaser on YouTube with cast and screenshots

    Right, and I think the Super 8 teaser was made before principal began. So if JJ follows suit then we might be getting something in time for SDCC in July. On the other hand, Lucasfilm used to wait until pretty late in the process to release any kind of teaser.

    Star Trek and Super 8 (and, technically, Cloverfield - which was an Abrams production) all had teasers done before the movie was shot. Into Darkness, however, did not.

    This time next year the Spoilers Allowed forum will just begin to get dangerous for those who want to avoid getting spoiled (I'm a pessimist when it comes to the Dec 2015 release date. It will move to May 2016 in my estimation). I will eventually make my way over to the Non-Spoilers thread as the midichlorian count gets higher here.

    This time next year, I predict people in tents waiting in line to see the movie that may or may not play at that theater. :D

    If I remember correctly, the virtual editions for TPM were released during the summer of 1998. If I also recall, much of the entire story for AOTC was leaked in detail during the summer of 2001.

    But I don't think we'll know that much, but we'll know a premise and focus. I highly doubt we'll have any sort of trailer/teaser until the summer 2015. Avengers 2 will carry the first real trailer/teaser and it will run through several other films that summer. However, Disney likes to keep things in the house running with their own movies. Not sure how that will work with SW, but all the huge movies in the summer 2015 could serve as major marketers for SW. (Avengers, Jurassic Park, Inside Out, Minions, Man of Steel 2).

    We will have a def cast line up.

    Some character designs "leaked".

    A vague storyline.

    Perhaps they will get out of their parents basements and "Occupy Star Wars."

    We will all be sad when it was just announced that a Star Wars: A New Beginning teaser will NOT appear during Superbowl XLVIX

    Disney has the unique opportunity to spend whatever they feel like on marketing, because this movie is virtually guaranteed to make a billion dollars at the box office. They could wait until November 2015 to release a trailer and we'd still go see it. I hope they don't, though :p

    Instead of creating a new thread, let's also speculate about what we'll know This Time Next Month.

    Right now, that means May 15th. Not a whole lot! :)

    Because of the start of shooting by then, I think we'll know quite a bit more by then than we do now. I still think May 4th may hold something.

    Hope you're right. Do we have an idea when in May shooting will commence?

    Me too! Sometime between the 1st and 31st is my guess. :p But no, they haven't been more specific than that yet, from an official standpoint anyway.

    I'd guess at some point after April and before June. :D

    We'll know that:

    1. Abrams is directing.
    2. Random youtuber has a new idea about how Episode I totally should've been written.

    Truly wondrous times ahead.

    PT teaser trailers were attached to big-name holiday films released in the November prior to the films' release, so ~6 months beforehand. If they stick to that formula, we're not due for a teaser trailer until June 2014, though I'd like to think we'll have one this time next year.

    As of May 2015, everything you want to know about the film aside from major plot points will be revealed. The first trailer will be out by May 4, 2015, for sure.

    This time next month very little will be known about the story. JJ Abrams will have a tight lock on the script and the shoot. The first of the teaser images will have made its way to Starwars.com. It won't be much but these forums will explode.

    This time next year would probably be re-shoots if needed and hopefully a trailer that will play before The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
