Video Blog: 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Teaser Trailer Reaction

Friday morning, 30 theaters in North America began playing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer in front of every single showing of every single movie on the schedule. Peter Sciretta, Russ Fischer and I all wanted to see the trailer for the first time on the big screen, as it was meant to be seen. We bought tickets to the absolute first showing in Los Angeles: a 7:00 a.m. showing at Disney's flagship theater, the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. We were among the first on the West Coast to see the first footage from the first new live-action Star Wars movie in almost a decade.

After years of anticipation, speculation and excitement, what did we think of finally seeing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer? Watch our Force Awakens trailer reaction video blog below and listen to us geek out over the first 88-second teaser trailer.
