The first teaser video for the new "Star Wars" film was posted Friday morning, triggering giddiness and instant critiques on social media.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, the project known commonly as Episode VII is scheduled to open Dec. 15, 2015. Its official name: "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
The 88-second video features a lightsaber design that's already causing a buzz, and the return of an old friend (can it still do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parcecs?).
Here's the video, and a taste of some of the reaction on Twitter.
