You can now watch 17 glorious seconds of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Folks, it seems the Star Wars: The Force Awakens hype machine has fixed its hyperdrive.

From the day that the first trailer dropped, until just a few weeks ago, getting information about the film was like pulling teeth. Disney and Lucasfilm printed scripts on black paper with violet lettering, a part of the police report was changed when Harrison Ford broke his ankle, the release of the novelization was delayed, and director J.J. Abrams wouldn’t even give Star Wars creator George Lucas a straight answer about the film. All of this was done so that the studio could control the flow of information and now, it seems like they’re ready to dump it on us all at once.

On the heels of the EW Star Wars issue’s revelations, last night’s American Music Awards debuted yet another trailer (below) as well as a clip from the film (above). That’s right, 17 glorious seconds of the actual movie. Don’t let its run-time fool you, however, the clip packs a punch and showcases the acting talents of two of the film’s stars.

In the clipped scene, John Boyega (Finn) and Daisy Ridley (Rey) are quite literally running for their lives on what looks like Tatooine, Luke Skywalker’s home planet. The pair looks to outrun their pursuers by making a mad dash for a vacant vessel that Rey refers to as a quad jumper. We won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t watched the clip, but let’s just say that plan is quickly derailed and the clip ends on a cliffhanger.

The new trailer, on the other hand, is around 30 seconds long and follows Rey’s story arc. We find out that she’s been waiting for her family, but we then hear a woman’s voice say: “Dear child, the belonging you seek is not behind you, it is ahead.”

With the anticipation for this film already swelled to epic proportions, the bevy of clips and trailers floating around are only adding fuel to an already raging fire. Oh, well. If worse comes to worse and you really can’t take it, you can always gorge on Thanksgiving dinner and slip into a turkey-induced coma until December 18.

Kidding … please don’t do that.

Only 26 more days.
