'Star Wars' Trailer Reawakens Franchise Fervor

The force has definitely awakened rabid "Star Wars" fans.

Lucasfilm released its newest trailer from the popular franchise last night during ESPN's "Monday Night Football" coverage of the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles game, and the response has been huge.

So far, the trailer has been viewed more than 13 million times. Check it out below.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens," directed by J.J. Abrams, picks up years after "The Return of the Jedi" and features all the major actors from the first incarnation of the film.

The film arrives in theaters December 18, but tickets for what's been billed as a "cinematic event" are on sale now.
