  • LUCASFILMStar Wars 8 The Last Jedi NEW TRAILER ‘Absolutely AVOID IT’ warns director Rian Johnson

Yes, in a brilliant example of corporate synergy, ESPN's Monday Night Football will show the latest trailer promoting the latest Star Wars flick, a move which will surely help boost ratings for the venerable icon.

The trailer for The Last Jedi will make its debut tonight, do you have what it takes to stop yourself from watching it?

And Han Solo, played by Harrison Ford, has been rumoured to reappear as a force ghost - though it's unconfirmed whether this will actually happen. Thanks to an exhibition at New York Comic Con, we now know the true reason why Kylo Ren wears a mask. (Interestingly, this news followed the debut of the new Justice League trailer and may have undercut that buzz a bit.) Each teaser featured a quick glimpse of new footage that will surely be in the full preview. One clip which comes out online focuses entirely on Daisy Ridley's Rey. Granted, the description of the marathon specifically states this is for the saga films, but it is still a little odd the first anthology is not part of this celebration of the galaxy far, far away.

It's the debate that's been tearing the fandom apart since Force Awakens-who are Rey's parents who were so in tune with the Force? And that could the Jedi master himself, Luke.

A message from Star Wars' UK Twitter feed confirmed that the new trailer would be revealed in the early hours of Tuesday 10th October UK time.

School guard sets kids on fire
At least five toddlers and six teachers have died during a horrific arson attack at their nursery this morning . Witnesses told media that the man, in his 50s, had been working as a night guard at the nursery for eight years.

Disney released the first trailer for Episode 8 almost six months ago.

The exact time the trailer will drop is still to be determined, but it will air during halftime of Monday Night Football and the game starts at 8:15 p.m. EDT/5:15 PDT on ESPN.

When is the Star Wars: The Last Jedi release date?

Members of the cast appeared at the D23 Expo in July to tease the movie, including the release of some brand new posters.

Lucasfilm also announced today that following the trailer launch, tickets to the highly anticipated cinematic event will be on sale everywhere movie tickets are sold.
