There will not be a new “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” trailer at the San Diego Comic Con. The next may be shown at the D23 Expo, an event where Disney showcases its biggest projects.

In a statement to the unofficial SDCC blog, Lucasfilm has confirmed that there won’t be a panel discussion or trailer at the San Diego Comic Con. Instead, their participation at the event will be low-key and will be restricted to fan interactions at the booth.

“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,” Lucasfilm reportedly said in a statement.

Even though there won’t be details about the upcoming film, fans who attend the San Diego Comic Con will still get to see a lot of exciting things from the franchise such as toys and books. In the past, the official toy line of the new movie revealed details about the characters and costumes, and the same may happen this year.

The low-key participation at the San Diego Comic Con is understandable because the D23 Expo is scheduled to be held from the 14th to 16th this month. Lucasfilm may save all big revelations for the Disney event. The biggest reveal will be the next trailer of the film, apart from teasers from the cast members at the panel discussion.

As part of the tradition, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” may reveal a new planet in the fictitious universe. There are a lot of mysteries that the panel discussion can explore. From Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Snoke’s (Andy Serkis) background to the events that led to Ben Solo’s (Adam Driver) turn to the Dark Side and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) going in search of the first Jedi Temple, the director and the cast have a lot they can talk about.
