Two new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” teasers have been unveiled, ahead of the big trailer reveal during Monday Night Football.
In the first trailer, Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) share a passive glance at one another. In the second trailer, we see small cameos of all of the main characters, including a quick flicker of a lightsaber.
The first extended trailer will air on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” during halftime of the National Football League game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles in Philadelphia. The game starts at 5:15 p.m. PDT/8:15 p.m. EDT on the cable network, which is owned by Disney.
“The Force Awakens” is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow, with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker reprising their roles from previous “Star Wars” films. The story is set approximately 30 years after the events of 1983’s “Return of the Jedi.”
