There were plenty of enthusiastic reactions to the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that dropped yesterday, ranging from the overjoyed to the overemotional. It’s understandable given how much this franchise means to people and how promising J.J. Abrams’ sequel appears to be, and it looks like a recent Oscar winner was a bit overwhelmed by the new trailer as well: Matthew McConaughey.
Below, you can watch McConaughey’s “reaction” to watching the new Star Wars trailer in real time, though for some reason it looks like the actor was on an inter-dimensional space journey at the time that he viewed the new trailer. Considering this is only just the second teaser trailer, I can only imagine how McConaughey’s going to react when the first theatrical trailer for The Force Awakens is released. I hope somebody’s looking out for the guy when that time rolls around.
