Following yesterday’s announcement that a new trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens will premiere during tonight’s installment of Monday Night Football on ESPN, Disney and Lucasfilm have released a trio of teasers for the trailer that reveal some of the new footage before its official debut this evening.

And yes, at this point it’s pretty clear that the “teasers for trailers” trend isn’t going away any time soon — so if you’re a Star Wars fan, you might just want to set aside any reservations and sit back and enjoy the three brief previews of The Force Awakens. After all, they are another way to make the time go by a little faster between now and the film’s premiere in December.

All three teasers were revealed on Twitter, and you can watch them below:

The full trailer for The Force Awakens is set to debut Monday, October 19, during halftime of the National Football League game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. The game kicks off at 8:15pm ET.

Along with the premiere of the new trailer, tickets for The Force Awakens will also officially go on sale this evening — so you might want to keep one eye on the television while also keeping the website for your theater of choice open and ready for clicking. Theaters are expected to sell out quickly, so you’ll want to keep some options in mind if you don’t get your first choice of venue.

Set 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the JediThe Force Awakens introduces a new generation of heroes and villains to the Star Wars universe, and brings back some very familiar faces, too. The cast of returning actors includes Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhew, and they’re joined by newcomers Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max Von Sydow.

The Force Awakens is directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay penned by Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan, and Michael Arndt.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens officially hits theaters December 18, 2015.
