Earlier this week it was announced that the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be shown in a number of cinemas across North America, and those cinemas would be exclusively showing the trailer before anywhere else. The trailer is set to debut this coming Friday.
Things have changed as Disney have come to realise that the trailer will likely arrive on-line very quickly in a poor quality pirated version. They have now announced that not only will the trailer be shown in select cinemas, but it will also be made available on iTunes. Naturally the trailer will land on-line on Friday too, in a good quality version for all to enjoy.
The official announcement was made through the Star Wars Twitter account:

Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.
