Star Wars Trailer

It's official: the world cannot wait for the new Star Wars movie to come out.

A new South Korean teaser for the long-awaited sequel Episode VII: The Force Awakens quietly arrived online this week - and when the greater internet learned that there was, like, one whole new shot in the 30-second clip, it immediately blew up.

If you missed what has gotten the fans so riled up, it's this opening shot that we haven't yet seen in our repeated views of the main English-targeted trailers: An enormous army of Stormtroopers and TIE Fighters standing together.

According to the official Star Wars Twitter, these guys represent the First Order - yep, that's the name that the remnants of the Galactic Empire and the movie's new "bad guy" faction is known as. 

Since this sliver of footage debuted in the South Korean release, of course people have been very quick to make comparisons between the First Order and what they know of the more militant North Korea.

Whether or not it was intentional, we're hyped as always. Watch the full-length trailer below.
