A new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is going to drop tonight, but some fans may be confused about where and when they can see it.
The new trailer for The Last Jedi will air on ESPN during halftime of Monday Night Football's Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears game, tonight. The game starts at 8:15 pm ET / 5:15 pm PT; depending on the game and clock stoppages, that puts halftime somewhere in the 9:45 pm ET to 10:00 pm ET range.
After the trailer debuts on TV, we'll most likely see it drop online soon after, as tickets for The Last Jedi officially go on sale via Fandango after MNF is over around 11:15 pm ET. It's hard to imagine Fandango launching the ticket sales without the trailer also being online for ticket buyers to see.
So, to recap, here is when you should be ready to see the new Star Wars 8 trailer on ESPN:
- 9:30 pm ET
- 8:30 pm CT
- 7:30 pm MT
- 6:30 pm PT
Click here to head over to Fandango where you can get tickets starting at 11:15 pm ET tonight.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi picks up where the Force Awakens left off, with Rey (Daisy Ridley) training with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), while Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and The First Order mount a new attack against Leia (Carrie Fisher) and The Resistance.
It's no coincidence that ESPN is getting this opportunity: Disney owns the sports network and Lucasfilm, and ESPN could definitely use a ratings boost after some recent struggles.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters on December 15, 2017.
