Harrison Ford Says Three Words in 'Star Wars

Episode VII' Trailer, Internet Goes Nuts

Thus far, what glimpses we've had of Star Wars: Episode VII are brief, but the internet is buzzing about them nonetheless.

These are the only words uttered by Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the latest teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens. If one were to merely peruse the internet a few hours after the trailer’s release, though, he might as well have given the plot away. Already, fans across the interweb have started compiling videos and articles detailing every minutia of the brief shots we’ve been afforded. Suffice it to say: anticipation is at an all-time high for this epic sci-fi series.
With J.J. Abrams at the helm rather than George Lucas, there’s at least some reason to believe we won’t be dealing with an extension of the series that involves bringing a character like Jar Jar Binks into the mix.

The Force Awakens is out on 18 December in the United States and the UK.
