Part of the fun this week surrounding the release of the final, amazing trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens has been watching the videos of people reacting to it. It’s like when they set up cameras at bars for huge sporting events. This trailer has been like a big game for nerds everywhere, but one where some of the game’s biggest players got to sit with us.
Boyega lost his mind.
Here’s the split screen of him watching it. (I lost my mind at the same moment.)
Ridley lost her emotions.
Well it turns out they weren’t the only new stars to film their reaction, nor was Ridley the only one who needed to lie down to watch it. Our new favorite droid, BB-8, also wanted a record of its response.
Like Ridley and Boyega, BB-8’s emotional response was obviously a cathartic release following the realization that you are a small part of something so much bigger than yourself.
Since this was our nerd gold medal game, here’s the awesome video from the Nerdist office one more time.
So what reaction video has been your favorite so far? Share it in the comments below so we can have an excuse to keep watching this trailer.
