It's almost here! Tonight we'll get the third and final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it promises to be an event like no other! This latest footage will debut during halftime of ESPN's Monday Night Football on Monday, October 19. Yesterday, Canadian network CTV released a brief trailer preview with new footage showing Rey (Daisy Ridley) and BB-8 watching from their forest hideout as First Order troops flew above in their shuttles and TIE-Fighters. A second teaser from Walt Disney Studios Canada offered a new look at Poe Dameron armed and ready for battle. Now, courtesy of the official Star Wars Twitter, we have two more Trailer teasers. The first shows Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) sharing a moment as they both head off in their separate directions, prepared for the war ahead. The second one gives us another look at BB-8 as he rolls across the desert, providing us with a pretty good idea about what he actually sounds like.
Lucasfilm released the official Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster worldwide yesterday. It gave us our first look at the Starkiller Base, which is a variation on the dreaded Death Star. Following the trailer launch tonight, tickets to this highly anticipated cinematic event will be on sale everywhere movie tickets are sold. In conjunction with the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debut, the Walt Disney Company is providing unprecedented company-wide on-air and social support (#TheForceAwakens) as well as tying in events and special activities for the day of the trailer release.
Tickets for the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens will also go on sale tomorrow for showings in theaters across the globe. LucasFilm also confirmed a Star Wars Marathon Event, where theaters will be playing all seven movies. The Star Wars Marathon Event is the ultimate fan experience. All seven movies. One epic journey.

We're not sure what or who'll we'll see in the third trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Luke Skywalker did not make it onto poster, but perhaps we'll get a first look at the returning Jedi later tonight. There have also been rumors that Rey may be Han Solo's daughter, especially since the character's surname has yet to be revealed. Director J.J. Abrams has already said there is a reason why we don't know Rey and Finn's last names yet, which will most likely be revealed when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, and not in this upcoming sneak peek.
Disney and LucasFilm still haven't revealed a full synopsis for Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet, but producer Kathleen Kennedy confirmed earlier this month that this movie, and the sequels Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX will follow Luke Skywalker's family. It isn't known which of the new characters who will be introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens are part of Luke Skywalker's family, but hopefully we'll have more details soon. Since we still haven't seen Luke Skywalker in any footage yet, many fans are hoping we get our first look at this beloved character in tomorrow's trailer, but we'll have to wait and see. While we wait for the trailer debut tomorrow night, check out these brief previews below.
