Preview for next Star Wars movie arrives in just one Minnesota movie theater


Now you really have heard everything.

Star Wars fans are pumped about a teaser trailer for a movie that won't hit theaters for a year, and Minnesotans are among those getting the sneak peek.

The Pioneer Press reports that Edina's AMC Southdale theater is one of the only places in the world where fans can see the 88-second advancer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" on Friday.

The Star Tribune explained that the Southdale theater is one of only 30 movie theaters across the country that is playing the preview before every movie. The trailer will be played in 18 states and in Canada, then will be seen in previews around the world starting in December.

But maybe you don't need to buy a ticket to a movie in order to get a look at the trailer. Entertainment Weekly reports the trailer is expected to be released on iTunes soon. The entertainment magazine promises a "full, obsessive analysis of the trailer" will follow its mass release. It is also available on YouTube.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will be released on Dec 18, 2015. The highly anticipated seventh installment of the sci-fi franchise will reunite Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill in the roles of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. New cast members include Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Andy Serkis, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac.
