Twitter Makes a Moment From First 'Star Wars' TV Commercial

But can a 30-second spot satisfy when there is still more than a month to go before the movie opens?

If you felt a disturbance in the Force this morning, you weren’t alone. Disney released the first official TV commercial for its upcoming film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Twitter aimed to seize on the moment and surrounding discussion, turning the commercial’s debut into one of its new Moments features.

If you need a little more to keep you going until the film opens Dec. 18, here’s the Japanese trailer for the film. There’s also the three minutes of footage shown at Comic-Con in July.

The U.S. trailer debuted on ESPN’s Monday Night Football last month.
