On the off chance that you haven't seen it yet, here it is in all it's exciting – albeit brief – glory.
The long-awaited trailer, for the even longer awaited film, set the internet on fire, and also seemed to stir the imaginations of Star Wars lovers across the globe who reacted to the trailer release with a bevy of fan-made tribute videos and parodies.
Perhaps the most impressive tribute video came from YouTube user Snooperking, who redid the entire trailer, shot by shot, with Legos. For a little reference on why that's so monumentally impressive, the stop-motion Lego tribute was posted Nov. 29, just one day after the trailer went live.
That's nothing short of astounding. And the attention to detail (such as the Lego-version of the laser-hilted light saber) really showed a level of creativity and inventiveness that is just mind blowing.
While most people were excited about the new trailer, there are still a number of Star Wars fans who feel apprehensive. Once bitten, twice shy, as the old saying goes. Many people still feel hurt and disappointed by George Lucas' Star Wars sequels, and YouTube user timtimfed felt that this was a perfect chance to take a few sharp jabs at the filmmaker's handling of the franchise.
Here we get a chance to see what the new Star Wars installment would look like if Lucas still had his hands on the film's production.
And if making fun of Lucas just isn't enough for your jaded heart, check out this parody from Luke Fitch, who adds a few (or a lot) of J.J. Abrams' patented lens flares (which he admittedly uses in almost everything he has a hand in).
