Final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer released; ticketing websites crash

During tonight’s Monday Night Football game on ESPN (which is owned by Disney), the latest and final trailer for the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted.  It had been advertised that immediately after the trailer premiered on television, advanced tickets would go on sale for Star Wars marathons (showing all seven films) and early showings on December 17th (the official opening date in the United States is December 18th).  However, sites like Fandango ended up selling tickets well before the trailer debuted.  As a result, Fandango and other movie ticket sites like crashed and displayed error messages for visitors looking to buy tickets.
