Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer - Twitter reacts to Millennium Falcon and light sabers



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:





Of course, not everyone was happy with the 88 second clip:


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.
