Following The Force Awakens Panel from the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California last night, everyone must’ve died a little as the brand new trailer for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, slated for release on 18 December worldwide, was unveiled. We won’t lie; we’re freaking out. Can December come already?

In the two-minute teaser, we get our first proper look at Kylo Ren, some scenes featuring┬áthe new leads, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley (whom we’re pretty certain will act as Leia’s daughter), R2-D2, new droid BB8 and Darth Vader’s deteriorating mask from Return Of The Jedi. We also hear Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, in a voiceover where he describes how the Force is strong in his family.

And the final shot. We literally had goosebumps when it ended with a shot of Han Solo saying to Chewie, “We’re home.”

Christmas this year will definitely be a memorable one.
