(PIX11) -- On Thursday, fans got a look at "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" new trailer. The movie is due out in December.

The Star Wars saga is a force that's been going strong since 1977.

"I was very excited because he had that little shot of Han Solo come out, and he's like, I'm home," says fan Navin Raj.

The store manager of Forbidden Planet NYC says the excitement has been pumping for a while. Just a few weeks ago at Midtown Comics, George Lucas himself stopped by to pick up some goodies.

"He stopped in, was just buying some comics, by himself," said ‎Marketing & Events Coordinator Andrew Cohen.

Die-hard fans or not, we'll all have to wait until December. May the force be with you.
