The first full-length trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is rumored to drop on Monday, Oct. 21, during halftime of Monday Night Football on ESPN during the game between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. The game begins as 8:15 p.m. ET, which would likely place the trailer somewhere between 9:30-10:00.
Star Wars trailers have regularly dropped during MNF and that this is a big rivalry game featuring the defending Super Bowl champions, so there's sure to be plenty of eyes on the Disney-owned ESPN that evening.

Should the trailer drop Oct. 21, tickets could be available around that time. Furthermore, an official trailer announcement would likely happen no later than Oct. 20, exactly two months before the film premieres in North America.

Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Matt Smith and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E.
