Last week the epic new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. The reaction of the Star Wars fans was so big, it added an estimated $3 Billion AU to the franchise’s value.

It encapsulated the fans’ emotional connection and childhood nostalgia to the franchise, sending it viral with more than 8 million views. Try to watch this video without smiling!
