Earlier this week, Lucasfilm named 30 theaters that would play the STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS trailer this weekend. Today, we learned that fans do not have to be lucky enough to live near any of those locations in order to enjoy it. The debut trailer for THE FORCE AWAKENS will be available online via iTunes Trailers beginning this Friday. Just go ahead and prepare yourself now to relive the same 88 seconds over and over again throughout your holiday weekend.

The reason for the change is unknown. Perhaps Disney and Lucasfilm had planned it this way all along. All that really matters, though, is that fans all over the world will not have fight temptation to avoid seeing the trailer for the very first time via a cellphone bootleg. Fans of all regions and passion levels will now be able to see the trailer in the high quality such an occasion deserves. As an added bonus, Friday’s trailer debut ensures a quick podcast response time!
In the event that you are fortunate enough to live near one of those 30 chosen theaters and feel compelled to see the STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS trailer on a big screen before, after, or in between online viewings, see the list below to chart your course.
