Hype for J.J. Abrams's Episode VII has been building to a nigh-unbearable climax, with fans dissecting every slither of information Disney's been drip feeding us. I think we can all agree that December can't come soon enough.

But worry not Star Wars fans, because according to Screen Crush the third (and final) trailer will hit on Monday, October 19! Rumors suggest the hotly anticipated teaser will air during Monday Night Football on ESPN, so make sure you're glued to your set.

This coincides with the day tickets become available to purchase, opening up for for screenings of the film on December 17 through to January 3. Hardcore fans will even be able to book themselves into a movie marathon, starting with The Phantom Menace and leading all the way up to The Force Awakens as part of a 15-hour long endurance test.

But back to the matter at hand. We already got a glimpse of the new trailer in a short teaser that dropped last month, featuring Finn brandishing his blue lightsaber:

There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

But what else can we expect come Monday?

3 Things We Want to See in the New Trailer

1. A lightsaber Battle

There's been plenty of saber-teasing in the trailers so far, but we've still yet to see an honest to god clash between two Jedi! I'm praying we'll get at least a snippet of the duel between Finn and Kylo-Ren, just to tide us over until December.

2. X-Wings in Battle

My favorite piece of pre-release footage by far is this swooping shot of the rebels flying into battle. If I can watch the iconic ships take down a TIE-fighter, I'll be a happy man.

3. Leia in Action

Carrie Fisher will reprise her role as the feisty rebel leader. We've seen Han and Chewie return triumphantly, how about Leia?
