We’ve been hearing all week that J.J, Abrams and crew were dropping the first official teaser trailer for The Force Awakens today in select theaters.  And about thirty minutes ago, all of our geek dreams came true when it became available to watch from the comfort of the couch on iTunes.  I was in the kitchen wearing my Millennium Falcon t-shirt, flipping pancakes with my Darth Vader spatula and refreshing my internet feed, and it finally happened. Oh. My. God.  I’ve watched it seven times now and I’m still getting goosebumps.  The tone is frantic, anxious, and we couldn’t have asked for more teaser goodness packed into one trailer.

Now I, too, remember how exciting and perfect the prequel trailers were years ago, but let’s not live in the past friends.  For now, let’s just bask in all the glory that comes along with a new live action Star Wars film.  Let that John Williams score give you chills, and clench your fists at the fact that we now have to wait a whole year to see the force actually awaken.
