There's no doubt that yesterday's second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens really moved fans of the sci-fi saga, especially with that final shot featuring two of our favorite heroes. Social media was full of people overwhelmed with feelings and joy, and apparently so was Matthew McConaughey. A reaction video has surfaced showing McConaughey watching the teaser trailer for the first time, and it's pretty clear that he's a huge Star Wars fan. There's plenty of people who got emotional, but McConaughey's reaction is on another level. He even went so far as to watch the trailer from space. He's just that dedicated.

Matthew McConaughey's reaction to The Force Awakens trailer (via friend of the site John Cessna):

Yes, this is footage from Interstellar, spliced with Star Wars by user oskararnarson on YouTube.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, not to mention other standalone movies in this universe. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th, 2015.

    It is sad that this is probably VERY close to the reaction many Star Wars fans had to the trailer.

        The force is not strong with this one... I thought the Batman V. Superman trailer was a heaping pile of "Meh".

    Pretty close to how I felt.
