Lucasfilm and Disney will be releasing the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during halftime of ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast of the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles game on October 19, 2015. The game will start at 5:15pm PT so you can expect halftime about 6:45ish.
With the trailer set to debut tomorrow, today Lucasfilm unveiled a poster that’s loaded with clues. In fact, there might be too much going on in the poster but curiously Mark Hamill is nowhere to be seen even though Harrison Ford’s Han Solo and Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia are present. And once again John Boyega’s Finn is seen with a lightsaber.
In addition to the new poster and trailer, Lucasfilm and Disney confirmed online ticket sellers will begin selling tickets to the much-anticipated December 18, 2015 release of the new Star Wars film following the launch of the trailer.
J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens which stars Boyega, Hamill, Ford, Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow.
