With the annual Star Wars Celebration set to hit Orlando this week, fans are looking forward to some big announcements. There have been rumors that the first official trailer for The Last Jedi could be released during the event, as well as the possibility of some new Star Wars stories being announced.
However, it's just been revealed that the first big announcement will be arriving first thing Tuesday morning.
Good Morning America tweeted out a video on Monday, telling everyone to make sure they check out Tuesday's show. It states that, in honor of the franchise's 40th anniversary, that they will have a major announcement happening live on the following day's show.
The video teases that stars Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley will be live on the show to help reveal whatever could be coming. The video also states that fans will want to "Be a part of this Force", and that the announcement is "40 years in the making."
There was no indication as to what this announcement could be, but many people are thinking it could be the unveiling of the release date for The Last Jedi's trailer.
