ESPN is giving audiences extra reason to tune in to Monday Night Football.
The network will debut the first full trailer for the forthcoming Stars Wars movie The Last Jedi during its Oct. 9 broadcast, which will see the Bears and Vikings face off under the lights. According to a news release from the network, the trailer will debut during halftime. Game coverage is currently scheduled to start at 8:15 p.m. EDT.
Details have been scant about the movie’s plot ever since the announcement that the movie was being made. What is known is that it picks up where The Force Awakens left off, with Rey (Daisy Ridley) locating Luke Skywalker. The trailer that has currently been made available hints that despite Luke’s reluctance, she convinces him to train her while also learning some deeply held secrets about the force and the Jedi.
Mark Hamill returns to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker alongside the now late Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benecio Del Toro.
Rian Johnson wrote and directed the movie. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman produced while J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski and Jason McGatlin each served as executive producers.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will debut in theaters nationwide Dec. 15. More information on Star Wars: The Last Jedi is available online now at:
