The Force may not awaken for another two months, but the Disney promotional machine is officially in overdrive.

At halftime of tonight’s Giants-Eagles matchup, fans will be treated to a new Star Wars Episode VII trailer.

And ahead of this milestone event, the studio has unveiled a juicy new poster for the year's most anticipated movie.

Among the highlights:

  • Brand new heroes Rey, Finn (holding Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber!) and Poe Dameron in pilot gear.
  • A fresh look at their adversaries in the First Order, chiefly the blade-wielding Kylo Ren and the chromed-out Captain Phasma.
  • Long-time favorites Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2, along with our first look at a returning Carrie Fisher and a new hairdo for Princess Leia.
  • Even more intriguing than that? Look up in the right corner... amidst the battling X-wings, TIE fighters and Star Destroyers... doesn't that planet-shaped weapon appear to be the latest evolution in Death Star technology?!?

A limited number of Star Wars: The Force Awakens tickets will actually go on sale Monday night, while the trailer will hit your small screen around 10 p.m. EST.

So get ready for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be released on December... but get set to be even more excited for it in a few hours.
