You won’t have to head to the movies to see the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Friday. Star Wars’ official Twitter account sent out a message this afternoon saying that the trailer would be published Friday on iTunes. Lucasfilm initially announced that you would have to head out to one of just 30 movie theaters in order to see the trailer, so this is a big change — and one that may even make a bigger impact. It’s not clear if this was the plan all along, but it doesn’t seem like it. If that’s the case, it’s possible that the trailer is going up early in response to some fans’ disappointment that they’d be unable to see it. No specific time was given for when the trailer will go online.
