As the first teaser trailer for The Force Awakens dropped online yesterday, Twitter went into meltdown.

The film doesn't release until December 18 next year but fans were thrilled to get a glimpse of JJ Abrams' blockbuster and most reacted positively to the trailer.  Here are some of the most excitable reactions:

The sand dunes, Storm Troopers and the Siths are all back for the new Star Wars. Daisy Ridley is seen wearing a rather fetching headdress and John Boyega appears as a Storm Trooper in a clip that highlights the new talent rather than focusing on returning original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

The hotly-awaited movie will pick up thirty years after the events of George Lucas' Return of the Jedi in 1983.

The trailer's arrival comes after a U-turn by Disney, which initially announced it would debut the first teaser exclusively in some US and Canadian cinemas.
