'Star Wars: Episode VII' Teaser Trailer Featuring Luke Skywalker to Be Released Soon?

A new rumor claims that a major casting announcement will be revealed along with the first footage. It is expected to drop before the weekend.

Star Wars: Episode VII has become a tiring marathon of non-news, as unverified casting reports continue to trickle in along with the occasional far-fetched rumor, and some non-too-exciting technical tidbits. That may all change any minute now, with New York Comic-Con 2013 kicking off this weekend. Various 'insider sources' are once again claiming that the event will be the platform behind a major casting announcement and teaser trailer reveal featuring Luke Skywalker.

We've heard this all before, as Comic-Con 2013 and Disney's D23 showcase came and went without any new revelations at all. We shouldn't get our hopes up about NYCC, as it is the lesser venue, and not as big of a showcase for such an awaited announcement. Then again, a smaller platform might be the perfect place to finally confirm the official cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.

The most trusted info heading into NYCC 2013 comes from Ali Arikan, the chief film critic of Dipnot TV. We've never heard of him before, and he tweets in a language we don't understand, but the uber-fans believe he is a trusted source when it comes to all Star Wars: Episode VII related news.

Here is his Tweet from earlier today.

As you can see, that could say something horrible about all of your mothers and unborn babies. We don't know for sure. But this is how others have transcribed it.

"So here's what I'm hearing about Star Wars: Episode VII. Casting and title announcements are imminent, possibly today or tomorrow. But that's not all. I've heard word that there'll be an announcement trailer/teaser featuring Luke."

Ali Arikan claims this news came from the same source that revealed Benedict Cumberbatch is set to be a Sith Lord, and that Saoirse Ronan was testing for a female villain. The source was also the first to reveal that Ewan McGregor is returning as a force ghost.

If we are in fact getting a teaser trailer with the first casting announcement, it could explain why Mark Hamill has been working out so much lately. His friend, former roommate and the man behind Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund, recently revealed this interesting bit of info,

"Mark now-they've got Mark in the gym, because Mark's coming back as Luke Skywalker. They've got him doing his sit ups."

Is it possible that we will see the first Star Wars: Episode VII footage before the end of the week? Will Disney finally break its long silence on this movie? Or are we all just being set up for more disappointment? Who knows? I'm guessing some of you are even, at this point, saying, "Who cares?"

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

    So... a trailer for a movie that has not been made yet? nice. well if it does happen, they have (ILM) all the hard copy of the ships,planets, lighsabars in thier fancy studio. you can make a teaser video without making a movie so maybe we will see something, either way i will wait till they put something on film to get happy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    The tweet translates to this: "The nose of a shame that everyone is very clear I was a kid. Even if someone were embarrassed to even the toilet. (Hello Orhan Pamuk)" Nothing to do with SW7 at all. This is disgraceful to report such news MovieWeb, at least do SOME simple fact checks such as maybe use i don't know GOOGLE TRANSLATE or something, would be much appreciated next time!

    I'm not quite sure that I believe this news. It sounds like a false rumor.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Disney has been epically blue balling us for months now so if it doesn't happen, I will not be surprised at all.

    @therealGoku . No, Sebastian Shaw is the original Anakin Skywalker, as seen during the climax of ROTJ (original version).

    Luke Skywalker as a elder Jedi master with a grey beard. They'd better have Anakin's voice (the original one) in this teaser.

    Ok, the quote from Ali Arikan is in TURKISH, does no one else know how to use google to find a translator engine and then copy/paste that paragraph in and start trying to translate it in every language?
    The quote is from a Turkish author named Orhan Pamuk, thus the bracketed line on the bottom. Here is what it says when translated:

    "When I was a kid, everyone's so delete the nose between the gross. Even if you have someone else in the crowd started--to make even." (Welcome To Orhan Pamuk)

    SO, it has NOTHING to do with the impending Star Wars VII trailer that is RUMORED to be coming. Everyone is trying to be the first to scoop on a REAL update about the movie.

    If you want to TRY and understand this quote or can find something closer to what it actually says in English have a try, I spent five minutes power-skim through quotes by Orhan Pumak and couldn't even find anything close.

    Actually, that is exactly what JJ does - with Cloverfield he released the teaser a year before the premiere, and same with Super 8. I wouldn't be surprised if a teaser came out for Star Wars VII, but I'm very skeptical about him announcing the cast, etc...

    I highly doubt it! JJ Abrams is directing. The same guy who tried his best to hide any info about Star Wars possible. Even going as far as to lie about casting. Why would he release footage? I'm not saying it's not possible but there's been millions of Star Wars rumors. Plus are they even shooting yet??
