(CNNMexico) – Star Wars fans will not have to travel to the United States to see the first 88 seconds of the new film in the series.
Although Disney announced that the first teaser would only be presented in 30 theaters in the United States, the official Star Wars Twitter account confirmed that the preview can also be seen on iTunes Trailers.
“The force will be with you this Black Friday when the teaser for #TheForceAwakens (official name of the new movie) hits @iTunesTrailers,” tweeted the official Star Wars account managed by Lucasfilm.
Apparently the teaser will not be immediately on other online video services such as YouTube, so it will remain indefinitely (at least officially) on Apple’s multimedia content platform.
Some internet users commented that Disney’s decision to release the teaser digitally was a reflection of strong pressure and comments from fans of the series on social networks; however, Lucasfilm assured that it had planned to publish the short on iTunes from the beginning.
