Here’s what sheer joy looks like.
In the hours since it hit the Internet and movie screens across the nation, the 88-second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has elicited a froth of geeky anticipation heretofore unknown in our humdrum galaxy. And Tyrone Magnus may be the most excited of us all.
The voiceover actor and YouTube personality is big on reaction videos, but he’s fired up well before screening the short clip (twice), as evidenced by his toy lightsaber antics. “I got a big-ass glass of Star Wars drank that I’m ready to sip on right now!” he declares.
If George Lucas decides to meddle with the original trilogy again, he might consider dubbing in Magnus’ wookie roar for all of Chewbacca’s scenes—it’s just that perfect.
