    The internet is burning as the highly anticipated Star Wars Episode VII trailer has been released to the world. The JJ Abrams-directed minute-and-a-half teaser trailer is apparently narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Director JJ Abrams tweeted that the teaser will contain just “a tiny peek at what we’re working on.”

    Episode VII is set 30 years after the death of Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) and the fall of the Empire. The film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie.

    Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill will reprise their original roles from the classic Star Wars films.
