There was a great disturbance in the force this past week, as if millions of "Star Wars" fans suddenly cried out in joy while trying to read Japanese.

Disney released a new trailer in Japan for the coming film, "The Force Awakens," and the two-minute video included several snippets that had not yet been released in the film's three preceding previews. For the discerning Japanese filmgoer, Disney saw fit to roll out cinematic space-crash scenery, storm troopers with flame-throwers, new names, more dialogue and a closeup of Chewbacca's hand (opposable thumb and all). Vast swaths of the Internet occupied by "Star Wars" fanatics predictably exploded with glee and speculation.

If you can't watch the movie and you've already watched the trailer, of course you're going to want to watch someone else watching the trailer.
