The Beyond the OT Trailers/Promos Thread (YouTube/Vimeo, etc. finds)

In the same vein as the The Original Trilogy Trailers/Promos Thread (YouTube/Vimeo, etc. finds), as well as the Beyond the OT Documentaries (YouTube, Vimeo, etc. finds), I figured it made sense to start a similar thread dedicated to the Prequel Trilogy, Sequel Trilogy, Anthology films, and the various animated & live action TV series, etc.

  • When adding a link to a video, please add a title and/or description so that we don’t have to click on it to find out what it is. Any additional info would be appreciated as well, like f.ex. article links, or just a simple blurb. You can also add a photo (screenshot, poster, or simply use the YouTube thumbnail, etc.).
  • Trailers/Promos for home video releases (VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, etc.) are just as valid and welcome as Theatrical trailers (provided they conform with the last point on this list).
  • No Fan-made trailers please, only videos related to official releases.
  • This thread is specifically for post OT trailers/promos, so please don’t post anything primarily dealing with just the OT here. Some trailers and promos do of course promote box-sets covering several eras of Star Wars, so it’s fine if the OT is mentioned in the trailer/promo provided the focus is on one or several of the non-OT films.

An In-Progress Index…

^ The Index was added as the thread grew to help navigate through the various Trailers, Promos, etc.
 

NOTE: If one of the videos should be deleted from YouTube/Vimeo/etc. please PM ZkinandBonez so that the link can either be replaced or labelled as defunct. Alternatively PM oojason or one of the other mods.


Once again it seems appropriate to start at the “beginning” with The Phantom Menace:

The Phantom Menace Trailer A

The Phantom Menace Trailer B (35mm FLAT)

The blurb:

The Phantom Menace - 2000 VHS Release Commercial
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVRu755HyW8 - from the Betamax King YouTube channel (15 sec long).

The blurb:
“2000 ad for the VHS release of The Phantom Menace. This began airing on April 3rd, 2000 the day the movie was released to video for the first time. This actual VHS recording was made two days later on April 5th, 2000.”

The voice-over:
“What if you could share every moment…again. Share it all with your family on video.”

Here’s a bit of an unusual one I came across, thestarwarstrilogy.com has 35mm scans of all the PT trailers in Czech.
I don’t read or understand Czech, but its always fun to see something you’re familiar with dubbed in another language
and the PT effects and digital footage seems so much better on grainy 35mm film, so these are worth seeing just for that.
