It seems the footage shown at the event was what had been previously shown at CinemaCon, but with an added voice-over from Dan Fogler and Alison Sudol for the Japanese fans. As well as this, some of the fans received a ‘goody bag’ with a copy of a poster signed by Eddie Redmayne with a special message to the fans there. These can be seen in our gallery:
