Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens trailer debuts during Eagles-Giants game

Check out the trailer below.

The highly-anticipated trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens debuted at halftime of the Philadelphia Eagles' divisional contest against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. This is the first new trailer for the movie in six months.

According to an ESPN press release from earlier in the week, tickets to the film will become available following the debut of the trailer. The latest installment of the Star Wars franchise hits theaters on December 18th. According to a reddit post from earlier in the week, the trailer will also be simulcast at Lincoln Financial Field, and several in-game graphics will contain elements of a galaxy far, far away.

This Monday Disney is releasing the full trailer for The Force Awakens after the first quarter of your game. The whole night from graphics and scoreboard are Star Wars themed. The intro to the game gets an opening crawl detailing your hated rivalry.

Seriously it's the coolest thing Monday Night Football has ever done.

Oh and one more thing.

The trailer will play on the screen at Lincoln Financial so that those in attendance don't miss out!

Here's hoping the Force will be with the Eagles for the remainder of the game.
