From the two teaser trailers and the announcement of Force Friday, to the release of all-new images from the set courtesy of Vanity Fair, the rollout of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been “extremely deliberate,” according to Disney CEO Bob Iger.
“Generally speaking, you’re going to see us release, in a very careful way, certain elements of the film as part of a carefully designed marketing plan as we get much closer to the film,” said the CEO.
As excited as most fans were for Avengers: Age of Ultron, it did seem as though the promotion of the film was overwhelming at times. It sounds like that won’t be the case with The Force Awakens – which is good news for fans who are striving for a pure movie-going experience on December 18.
“We are managing all this with great care,” continued Iger. “We are mindful of the fact that we need to market this and go after this new generation and new territories. We also want to be careful that the demand does not create almost too much in the marketplace too soon.
“And so, everything we have done to date has been extremely deliberate, and we have a carefully constructed and deliberate plan going forward in terms of what we roll out in the marketplace in terms of product and marketing.”
Iger concluded with: “We’ve got something here that is very, very special.”
