Also, what is this trailer we're hearing about, some exclusive content being released by Square Portal, supposedly? If it's anything like SQPR has done before, this "new" trailer will be a mash-up of trailers with...err...bad music (sorry) playing. SQPR also said that this collaboration trailer or whatever they're doing shows exclusive Wildlands demo footage (been there, seen that) during the "developer tour."
In other words, should I be excited or not? I'll be honest, I can never know with SQPR.

No, I don't think there's much of a reason for you to be excited. The FFWorld preview article may indeed provide new information, but if my understanding is correct the European press event he's talking about should be the same thing Alex Donaldson started a Lightning Returns Q&A thread for earlier. At the very least, the demo FFWorld has access to will be the same thing, and probably the same demo build used at TGS.

As for the "trailer", that's pretty much the case as well. It will almost certainly be previously seen content mixed into a video with whatever music the creator decides they feel fitting. As is usually the case, the video should probably be called a fan-made recap or GMV. I mean, we'll see if it's something surprising and new but everything I'm looking at points in every direction except that.

Bit of context for this image, apparently these are the four favorite cutscenes of one of the game's cutscene designers.

Minor spoiler warning

I (cutscene designer, Miyake Hidekazu) introduce you to FOUR of my carefully selected, FAVORITE SCENES!! (I believe these are not in any particular order.)
A. This beautiful scene is a mix between a graceful ballet and a dance of swords.
B. We created this event to be a nostalgic reminiscent of a “certain” scene from FFXIII, and we hope it will excite the fans!
C. This scene is a tear-jerker! The love of family can be felt so strong.
D. We emphasized the sense of utter fear in this scene by adding eerie sounds and effects. We have many more amazing scenes near the last half of the game too, so please enjoy them as you play!

Something tells me that "B" scene is Lightning and Hope, you can almost certainly tell by the hair color and way its parted. Which, if Lightning looks that upset, can't be good. The room they're in is also dark, so we know it can't be the Ark. Either that or something happened to it.
I need answers.

What are you talking about? Isn't that the fight against Snow?

Snow's hair is more blonde and longer. I'm not saying I'm right, but I'm almost 100% sure that's Hope, because the hair is parted like his and it's more silver in color. Plus, besides a few moments of Lightning punching Snow or shedding a tear behind him on Gran Pulse, what other moments are that memorable between them to recreate? It also looks like Lightning is either kneeling or shaking *Hope.* Perhaps they recreated the little hug scene in Palumpolum? So, I think it's Hope, but I could be wrong. Just based on the lady's comment about the scene, the hair, height, and Lightning's expression, I'm betting Mr. Estheim.

Not yet, but I'm sure there would be interest if you made one.

I planned on posting a bunch of field navigation/battle system/menu/etc. screenshots, and was just going to use the spoiler tag. But if you're going to make a thread, then if you don't mind I'd love to post there so I don't fill up this thread.

I can make a thread now, and we both can use it to share different stuff. It would be nice to compare our Schema's and Costume Designs, as well as translations during game? :)

Wonder what her beef is? Maybe referencing Lightning's lack of emotion in LR due to Bhunivelze? Or just frustrated of playing a role where you can't put a ton of emotion into the role of Light in LR?
