‘The Last Jedi’ Will Not Be Featured At SDCC 2017

To the surprise of probably nobody given the fact that Disney’s own D23 Expo is scheduled to take place in two weeks, Lucasfilm has stated that attendees of SDCC, which arrives the week after D23 Expo, will not be seeing new footage from The Last Jedi nor will the film have a dedicated panel of any kind.

Via a statement from Lucasfilm Publicity team:

“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.”

We should be seeing new Episode VIII content at D23 Expo during the live-action presentation panel that will be taking place on Saturday July 15.
