New “Star Wars” content has arrived!

You may have noticed an anxious buzz on the internet Friday that had nothing to do with North Korea or Vladimir Putin. No, that buzz was thanks to Disney, which dropped the official trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” on YouTube and Facebook and Twitter.

The two-minute spot features some nice action shots, a few explosions and more Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) than we saw in the entire prequel, “Star War: The Force Awakens.”

As expected, the internet is gobbling this up. The video has already generated 17 million views on YouTube and 26 million views on Facebook.

Here it is for your own viewing pleasure.
