The time has finally arrive for those super excited and eager Star Wars fans; the new teaser trailer for the upcoming film has been released.

The newest teaser for the upcoming installation of the hit franchise made its debut a little while ago at the “Star Wars Celebration” event in Anaheim, CA, much to the delight of everyone in the convention center.

As pictures from several publications present at the event showed, hardcore fans of the movie started lining up for the event last night and for good reason. Not only was director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy on hand to answer fans’ questions and give out information about the new film (like the planet is named Jakka), but so were the stars of the film including: Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac.

According to Kennedy, Harrison Ford also wanted to be present at the event as well, but couldn’t due to his recovery from his plane crash last month.

For now, check out the two-minute trailer below and prepare yourself to “go home.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released just in time for Christmas on December 18.
