See 'Star Wars' actors react to the new 'Force Awakens' trailer

Lead actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega record themselves watching the new trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" that premiered Monday night. Excitement abounds.

Like the rest of us, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, the actors who play Rey and Finn, respectively, in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," saw the new trailer for the upcoming movie during Monday Night Football.

Ridley and Boyega each recorded videos of themselves reacting to the trailer, and it's pretty awesome to see just how blown away they are. Ridley gets totally emotional, letting out a happy shriek before becoming overcome with emotion and crying while declaring the trailer "amazing."

Boyega is a little more reserved, nodding and saying "yep" repeatedly until the finale. As the trailer winds down, the folks he's watching the clip with are definitely impressed by it, and Boyega is so happy he completely freaks out and leaps over the couch in excitement.

Yep, pretty much nailed every geek's reaction to the incredible new "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer that Disney and Lucasfilm debuted on Monday. See some of the most eye-catching images from the trailer here.

It's been an eventful couple of days for those awaiting the new Star Wars movie. New footage from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" dropped over the weekend, and tickets went on sale for opening night worldwide Monday. Disney and Lucasfilm also released the new movie poster.

Monday's trailer is expected to be the final clip before "The Force Awakens" hits theaters in December. The first premiered in November 2014, introducing us to Kylo Ren's funky new cross-guard lightsaber.

The second trailer landed in April, giving us our first look at an aged Han Solo and his trusty Wookiee companion Chewbacca aboard the Millennium Falcon. Many geeks got emotional upon hearing Solo utter the words "Chewie, we're home." "I got my heroes back," my CNET colleague Tania González wrote in a piece reminiscing about watching the original trilogy for the first time.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" arrives December 17 in the UK and Australia, and December 18 in the US.
