No new Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage at D23 Expo

After San Diego Comic-Con, the next presentation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to be at D23 Expo this Saturday. Fans expecting a new trailer or new footage will be sorely disappointed. J.J. Abrams has told EW that no new footage will be released. Bummer…

“It is true, we are showing no footage, behind the scenes or otherwise,” Abrams said. “In the fall, there’ll be a trailer. We’re thrilled to go to D23 and meet the fans, but it’s a tricky thing to try and rush [footage] for a convention or preexisting event that would, of course, be fun to show something at.”

This is sad news indeed. At least we got an international TV spot that was released this week that had a couple of new scenes.

Will the presentation at D23 Expo be able to top the San Diego Comic-Con one? If you recalled, fans were treated with a behind-the-scenes featurette and a free concert.
