BREATHE deeply... the third Star Wars trailer has been released and the internet is collectively losing its mind.

The Force Awakens will act as the seventh film in the saga, set in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi.

There are familiar faces and characters.

There are excellent robots, space-war battles and a variety of brightly-coloured lightsabres.

For the younger generation, this is their first opportunity to see a potentially decent Star Wars film at the cinema.

GIVE IN TO THE FORCE.
