The new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens aired tonight during Monday Night Football, an experience which gave me bitter flashbacks to having to participate in P.E. before I could move on to Drama class. After spending the last hour at my computer along with what felt like all of Twitter, anxiously awaiting the new look at what most of us are hoping will be a new future mega classic, even using Periscope for the first time to make sure I caught it as soon as possible, I didn’t know if the trailer could possibly live up to my expectations.
And then it did.
Millenium Falcon! Melted Vader mask! Droids of various sizes! Han and Leia being tender! Oscar Isaac and John Boyega sharing a mooooment!
Yup. All bad gym class-related feelings gone. Only The Force remains.
Oh, and presale tickets for the movie also went on sale today, a few hours earlier than expected, and crashed Fandango and other ticket-selling sites. (They’re also already showing up on eBay.) Amazing, isn’t it, that a bunch of racist trolls calling for a boycott didn’t actually do anything to hamper ticket sales? Well done, internet.
