Star Wars: The Force Awakens is drawing nearer to its Christmas day release, and to get everyone excited a new trailer will be shown on Monday, most likely during ESPN’s Monday Night Football. 

Fan site MakingStarWars.com has the scoop on the latest promotional clip for the franchise’s seventh film and its probable debut time.

It is indeed true that Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer will be released on Monday the 19th. The announcement should come about twelve hours or so before the airing (these things tend to fluctuate). We believe the trailer will appear with a football game that evening, but that bit is only semi-confirmed (although most likely dead on).

The site also announced that the trailer will mark the debut of the official logo of the new film, and that the official movie poster will be revealed on Sunday.
