Admit it. You were wondering.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out on December 18th, a mere three months away for a movie many thought we would never see. We’re sure many of you will be camping out for midnight screenings, as per Star Wars tradition. However… just when can you reserve your tickets and have your peace of mind? Well, fear not Star Wars fans. According to a new rumor, it seems Lucasfilm isn’t going to just randomly put them on sale and make everyone scramble.
So, when are the tickets going on sale?
The facebook page of Full of Sith, a Star Wars podcast, made the following post:
“Your wallet’s gotten a workout since Force Friday, but you’re probably wondering “When do I get to spend money on the the good stuff? **When can I buy tickets to The Force Awakens?**”
OCTOBER 19th. That’s when. At least if you’ve got a Century or Cinemark theater nearby. Although it’s likely a safe bet your Regals and your AMCs will have their box-offices waiting to recieve your moneys around the same time.
Speaking of bets (safe or otherwise) odds seem decent there *might* be a trailer right around that date to help push people towards that open and waiting box-office on the 19th. Maybe that day. Maybe the prior weekend. Maybe a week previous. Who knows.
Anyway: OCTOBER 19th. Tickets for The Force Awakens go on sale. There you go.”
How likely is this?
It could go either way. The date sounds perfectly reasonable, but the simple fact of the matter is it’s all unconfirmed and unofficial. However, we very much believe Disney and Lucasfilm will announce the sale date for the tickets in advance of their availability. There’s simply too much demand for them not to take those steps.
