There’s a lot to take in and fans have shown no restraint on social media with their thoughts on the action packed two minute clip.

Here are some of our faves.

So, yeah. Everyone seems pretty excited about the new flick.

Starring Daisy Ridley and Carrie Fisher, it's also the second Star Wars appearance for Girls actor, Adam Driver, who plays the Darth-Vader-esque baddie, Kylo Ren.

There's also heaps of lightsaber action, goose bump inducing space battles and a rather ominous quote from an elderly Luke Skywalker.

Played by actor Mark Hamill, his character says the words, “I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then, it does now.”

Other familiar characters including Chewbacca and BB-8 can be seen too.


However, the movie's director has warned super fans not to 'avoid' the trailer if they want to be completely surprised.
