Star Wars: The Last Jedi tickets go on sale Monday

This wouldn't be the first time a Star Wars trailer has debuted during a Monday Night Football game.

The official trailer for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will debut during halftime of Monday's matchup between the Bears and Vikings at Soldier Field, Lucasfilm announced Sunday. Fans will also be able to buy advance tickets for the movie very soon.

Those shots of Rey swinging Luke's old lightsaber around give me goosebumps, but not as many goosebumps as that shot of Luke's robotic hand reaching for the lightsaber.

The trailer date had been heavily rumoured for weeks - and now it's finally official.

In the new footage, Rey (Daisy Ridley) can be seen practicing fighting with a light saber.

So no doubt they will be delighted by an eight-second teaser that popped up on the franchise's twitter page.

A short teaser was released earlier this year, giving fans a first glimpse at what to expect from the film.

Stay tuned to Dork Side of the Force as we will bring you full coverage of that trailer and when you can purchase your tickets.

Rian Johnson, the film's director, hinted strongly towards the plans when he tweeted to a West Side Story track called Something's Coming last night.

This is the second time Disney has used ESPN's National Football League showcase to promote a Star Wars movie to an audience that might not normally follow such marketing.
