With the news that a new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been classified, and word that Lucasfilm are skipping Comic-Con in favour of D23, there’s been a lot of expectation that we’ll be getting our second look at December’s hotly-anticipated Episode VIII during the Disney Expo next weekend.
Well, according to rumours from Collider, we will be getting a new look at The Last Jedi, only it won’t be a trailer, but rather a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel.

This wouldn’t be too much of a surprise, given that we got similar sizzle reels for both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at Comic-Con and Star Wars Celebration respectively. Still, let’s hope Lucasfilm decide to spoil us and give us both the sizzle reel and the new trailer…
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 14th in the UK and December 15th in the States and sees returning cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), Mike Quinn (Nien Nunb), Simon Pegg (Unkar Plutt), and Warwick Davis joined by new additions Jimmy Vee (Pan) as R2-D2, Kelly Marie Tran (Ladies Like Us) as Rose, and Benicio Del Toro (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park).
