New Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer to debut on MNF

Monday October 19th, 2015

A third trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will debut at halftime of ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast of the New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles.

The third trailer is expected to be about two minutes in length, which is longer than the first two teasers, and the last look before the film’s release on Dec. 18. 

The Walt Disney Company owns ESPN and Lucasfilm Ltd.

A new poster for the film was released on Sunday by Lucasfilm. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew of the original Star Wars cast will reprise roles in the new J.J. Abrams directed film. 

An additional clip was shared on Sunday night to tease Monday’s trailer release. Watch below:

Monday’s game between the Giants and Eagles is set for kickoff at 8:30 p.m. ET.
