We’ve collected our favorite The Force Awakens joke and memes. Merry Christmas!
I’ll admit it: I never thought for a second that I’d be positively salivating at the thought of a new Star Wars film. The horrible prequels, the way George Lucas spent the better part of a decade doing to the original trilogy what Michael Jackson did to his face, whatever it was you hate most, we can all agree that the franchise seemed to have been thoroughly flogged to death.
And yet here we are, with the first official trailer for next year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens that looks… ok, holy shit it looks pretty great doesn’t it? Sure, the film could still suck, but at least it looks like a real movie instead of a cartoonish mess. Suddenly, I’m ready to love Star Wars again. And so is everyone else, apparently, because the Internet basically broke.
We’ll have to wait for another year to find out if the film is actually any good, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the anticipation now. So let’s indulge in a little hype worship. We’ve collected some of the funniest fan responses to the new trailer, from video edits, to tattoos, to memes. Read on, and enjoy.
merry Christmas happy Life Day! This image has been passed all over the Internet. I’ve not been able to locate the source, but we’ll be linking to it as soon as we do.
Swiss Jedi Knife(?)
Obviously, the most talked-about part of the trailer is the ith warrior wielding what appears to be the force-sensitive equivalent of a medieval broadsword. Ridiculous? Yes. Badass? Also yes. But how much more badass would it be if you could also open a beer with it? Actually, not much, but at least you can slice off your hand while fishing now, thanks to this Swiss Army version of the Jedi broadsword.
Perhaps the world’s first The Force Awakens Tattoo.
I’m fairly well covered in incredibly nerdy tattoos, so I definitely don’t disapprove of this amazing ink based on the soccer droid. I will admit part of me thinks “hey, maybe wait to see if this movie is any good first.” But then I think “shut up, voice of reason!” because this is pretty great.

In The Force, You Win Or You Become More Powerful Than You Can Possibly Imagine
It’s really too bad poor stupid Ned Stark couldn’t come back as a Force ghost to warn Robb about the Red Wedding. Oh well.

Yep, these things are only going to get more ridiculous as we go on. And I LOVE IT NEVER CHANGE.

Because JJ Abrams Has A Reputation
More than one person has put together videos pointing out the aspect of JJA’s filmic oevre weirdly missing from the new trailer. Thank you, your service is appreciated.

Again, these things are only going to get more baroque as we go on. Which, yay!
