This is a fast look at everything you need to know about the new Star Wars trailer and ordering the Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket sale time, locations and pricing.

It’s no secret that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens release date is officially December 18th, but there are options to watch Thursday night. We finally know more about the plans to screen the original films in theaters, ticket sales and collectibles.

This is what you need to know about the Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket sale time and the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer release.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailers Release Time

The new Star Wars trailer release time will come during the Monday Night Football game on ESPN. The game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles is not the most exciting matchup in football, but the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer release draws more attention to the game.

The Monday Night Football game starts at 8:30PM Eastern. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer release time will arrive during halftime of the game. An average NFL game lasts three hours and 12 minutes, according to Quartz, so that places the trailer release around 10PM Eastern.

Of course this could arrive sooner or it could arrive later depending on what happens on the field and the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer release time could also come anytime in the 12 minute half time. If you want to see it live on TV, you should probably tune in by 9:30 to see how much time is left on the clock.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Ticket Sale Time

Disney confirmed that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket sale time is right after the trailer airs during Monday Night Football on ESPN. As we just explained this is not a set time yet, as the trailer airs during halftime and ticket sales start after it.

If you use the Fandango app you can sign up for a FanAlert when tickets go on sale, but it is not clear how fast that will go out during the trailer reveal and the start of Star Wars: The Force Awakens tickets.

Where to Buy Star Wars: The Force Awakens Tickets

As soon as the Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket sale time arrives you will be able to buy tickets from services like Fandango and direct from theaters.

Fandango is one of the most well known places to buy movie tickets online, and with a chance to win tickets to the premier and Dark Side and Light Side prize packs it is a good option. You can buy tickets online or through the Fandango app on iPhone, iPad, on Android and on Windows.

If you know the theater you want to buy Star Wars tickets for, you should check out their website to figure out where to order tickets. Some theaters like Carmike show ticket sales dates for the rest of the year, but blank out the Star Wars: The Force Awakens release date for now.

Star Wars Snapchat Lenses

Disney and LucasFilms have the budget to deliver Star Wars Snapchat Lenses for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie release later this year.

Specifically we would love to see a Darth Vader Snapchat Lenses option that delivers breathing sounds and places a mask on our face .

If this isn't up the alley of Disney executives let's go for C3P0, Chewbacca, Han Solo, a Fighter pilot or Rey.

Star Wars is littered with opportunities to deliver new Snapchat Lenses that will allow users to get ready for the release without actually putting on costumes for the wait in line.
