Star Wars and Sports, two of #mymister’s favorite things. Today these worlds will collide when Lucasfilm debuts the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer during ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” during halftime. ESPN Deportes will simultaneously air the Spanish language version. The National Football League (NFL) game starts at 8:15p EST/ 5:15p PST. Of course we will be rooting for the New York Giants as they take on the Philadelphia Eagles. (In case you didn’t know yet, we are both New Yorkers born and raised).
Lucasfilm also debuted the Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster (see above) worldwide yesterday to commence the countdown to the trailer launch. Right after the trailer airs, you can snag your tickets for the movie, opening December 18th in US theaters, in advance. What a great holiday gift for those Star Wars fans in your family, right?
Here’s a teaser to help whet your appetite:
