While Disney skipped out on a Super Bowl trailer, it’s being speculated that the big Star Wars: Episode IX title reveal could be coming tomorrow, as Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels seemingly tease something is coming. In addition, tomorrow sees Disney CEO Bob Iger have a conference call on Tuesday, February 5.
Anthony Daniels, who recently finished filming as C3-PO, earlier tweeted, “How strange. I am receiving images of something amazing coming towards us – travelling over decades through space and time – reaching out to all humans on this planet with its message. What could it be? Should I be afraid? Should you? Stay tuned.”

Likewise, Mark Hamill took to Instagram to tell all the nerds to relax referencing Futurama.
