According to Lucasfilm, the full trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which dropped earlier this week (during Monday Night Football, of all things), was viewed over 120.1 million times in the span of 24 hours.

In a statement, Lucasfilm said:

“But it’s your response to the trailer and eagerness to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi that has us feeling most proud. It’s difficult to articulate what these view numbers, your online discussions, and your reaction videos — which we watch! — mean to us. We are humbled and grateful. To those of you who have already bought your tickets for opening weekend — thank you. Many shows have sold out in the US, and the UK/Ireland box office had one of its biggest pre-sales ever. But rest assured, there are plenty of seats still available! In just two short months, much will be revealed about Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, General Leia, Luke…and our new friends, the porgs.”

The porgs are probably a big chunk of the reason that so many people are watching the trailer over and over and over. That seems to be what the Twitterverse is going nuts for:

And in case you are the one person who hasn't seen the trailer (or just need to see it again)...
