There were a lot of nerd tears in the universe yesterday as the Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer premiered. That was largely due to the appearance of Harrison Ford as Han Solo at the end of the clip where he says, “Chewie, we’re home.” But, it was much more than that -- that music had something to do with it too.
The reaction across the world was universal -- everyone pretty much loved it. You know who else loved it? Matthew McConaughey!
The Oscar-winning actor was the subject of a meme-like video that shows him watching the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer and reacting accordingly. There’s joy. There’s all out bawling his eyes out.
Of course, the clip is really from Interstellar, but the timing of the emotional ebbs and flows could not be more spot-on. We had to share!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18 and we are prepared for more tears and smiles on that day as well.
