Watch: Video Essay Details Easter Eggs, References & Things You Missed In New 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer

Last night was a hugely exciting and supremely frustrating evening for “Star Wars” fans. Of course, the new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” dropped, but only after everyone had to sit through a tedious football game until halftime, not to mention that anyone trying to buy tickets for the movie likely walked away empty handed, as pretty much every movie theater site crashed due to the demand. But now morning is here, and of course, it’s time for the trailer for be analyzed, examined, and picked apart.

Generally, this kind of stuff is really not my thing, but kudos to Mr Sunday Movies for taking a cheeky, lighthearted, and yes, nerdy approach. Not overly studious, fun, and certainly self-aware, the video is a nice look at the new ‘Force Awakens’ trailer, and dives into some of the questions raised about the characters, while tying it in to what we already know. It’s a lot of educated guessing and speculation, but delivered with a sense of fun, and it’s worth a spin.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens on December 18th and chances are it’s already sold out near you, but it’s worth trying again this morning. And for the record, if you were excited by the new trailer, John Boyega was more excited. See his reaction below.
