In the wake of Disney’s hotly anticipated release of the newest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer last night, what followed was a global meltdown and geekgasm of epic proportions.

Two Star Wars actors took to their respective Instagram accounts and released videos of themselves responding to the trailer. While John Boyega (Finn) literally flipped out when he saw himself wielding Luke’s lightsaber (special effects and all) in the trailer, Daisy Ridley (Rey) was a tad more subdued, although she, too, got emotional and cried tears of joy: “Totally emotional seeing it for the first time and so so so incredibly awed to be part of this incredible legacy.”

Check out the two Instagram videos and a couple of cool reactions from the Twitter-verse below, and let us know how you felt while watching the newest Star Wars trailer:

And of course, there's always someone to rain on everyone's parade. Right, Piers Morgan?

Starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in a movie theater on Dec. 18.
