The teaser trailer to next year’s “Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens” hit the web Friday morning.
And holy moley.
The trailer features stormtroopers, Jedi (or Sith?), X-Wings, TIE Fighters and droids and is enough to set the nerds of the galaxy on fire.

The teaser finally gives us hints to the roles of Daisy Ridley (who zips away on a mega-landspeeder), and shows us the Millennium Falcon in action against Imperial TIE Fighters, plus new Stormtrooper helmets and a broadsword lightsaber (which doesn’t seem all that practical).
The film opens Dec. 18, 2015.
