Star Wars: The Last Jedi needs to come into our lives. Soon. The wait has been long and the footage even longer. However, we may begin to be sated in less than two weeks. With rumor swirling around, we’re now hearing from SWNN that the second trailer will indeed drop on October 9th. Start the countdown clock!

On September 19th, our resident jokester Mark Hamill sent a tweet that took the Twitterverse by storm. He has since deleted it and back-tracked but his words were on the tongues of all die-hard Star Wars fans. “Watch Monday Night Football on Monday October 9th- for no reason in particular.” Leave it to Mr. Hamill to tease fans and upset the House of Mouse all in one.

As said, he tried to back-track heavily, joking about how it was a reference to football teams, etc etc. No one bought it. So SWNN has been digging and claim that the trailer is indeed coming. Now, this isn’t the first time a Star Wars trailer has been linked to football. We saw a Force Awakens trailer back in 2015 during Monday Night Football, hence this rumor really has legs. And we deserve it since it’s been almost 6 months since the first one! So gird your loins everyone, we’re finally getting a new trailer.

What do you think of the news? Are you buying the rumor or waiting until you hear an official word? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Star Wars news.
