The upcoming Monday Night broadcast between the Vikings and Bears should get a viewership boost thanks to the Skywalkers.
Lucasfilm announced on Sunday that the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will debut on ESPN’s Monday Night Football on during halftime of the Vikings-Bears. The game kicks at 8:15 p.m. EDT. The film opens in U.S. theaters on December 15.
In 2012 Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion, putting the Star Wars franchise under the same umbrella as Monday Night Football.
