Celebrities love ‘Star Wars’ just as much as you do
The Force Awakens—and so does a dormant Star Wars fandom.
Are you one of the few people on the Internet who hasn’t seen the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer yet? Go fix that right now.
Got it? Good.
It’s been a long nine years since we last saw any new footage from a Star Wars film, and naturally people are freaking out. They’re rewatching the footage, making memes out of the new lightsaber, and generally over-analyzing those 88 seconds of shiny new footage being shared through iTunes and YouTube.
Turns out, those hordes of fans have star-studded company.
Celebrities from all walks of pop-culture life are not hiding their excitement for the new movie. Whether they’re well-known life-long fans or are only recently revealing their love of Star Wars, it doesn’t matter. We’re all united under one banner, and today that banner is a trailer. Celebrities—they’re just like us!
STAR WARS!!!!! Language and emojis fail to express what’s in my heart at this moment.

That ‘Star Wars’ trailer gave me the tingles. So thrilled to see John Boyega in there.

The feelings are everywhere, and all of us, no matter how famous or critically acclaimed by the Academy, want to express the pure joy of it all.
That Star Wars trailer is pretty killer…

I… Star Wars… So many feelings…

@Ryyyaaannn if loving Star Wars is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

Just watched the new Star Wars trailer and I cried a little bit.

We still know next to nothing about The Force Awakens, but even if it ends up hewing more closely to the prequel trilogy than the original, at least we’ll always have this pure euphoria, right?
Is that a lightsaber in my pocket, or did I just get way to happy to see the Star Wars trailer! #StarWarsEpisodeVII

Star Wars – Lucas + J.J. + Disney = BEST MOVIE EVER
— Zack Ryder (@ZackRyder) November 28, 2014
If the next trilogy ends up being awesome, I’d say let’s remake Star Wars I-III films and pretend those first ones never happened.

Just like the rest of us, celebrities are questioning the very foundations of their relationships if family, friends, and significant others reveal that, no, they’ve never seen Star Wars.
Told my wife that the new Star Wars trailer came out and she said sHE HASNT EVEN SEEN THE FIRST STAR WARS WHO IS THIS STRANGER SLEEPING BESI
— Seth Jones (@sethjones1) November 28, 2014
Perhaps the most surprising thing about today? The sheer number of people who are Star Wars fans.
A lot of people on the internet seem to be into Star Wars who knew.
