The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has debuted (below), and unsurprisingly, the internet had a few things to say about it. Some fans loved it. Others were unimpressed. The most committed used it as an opportunity to flex their Photoshop muscles. The only real surprise is the lack of lens flare jokes.

An assortment of inspired reactions are below. Stay tuned to EW for more thoughts about the trailer later today.

Look, I’m really excited for the new Star Wars movie too, but those new lightsabers are kind of overkill.

When can we expect Neil Degrasse Tyson to ruin the Star Wars trailer for us? — Bored Elon Musk (@BoredElonMusk) November 28, 2014



That ‘Star Wars’ trailer gave me the tingles. So thrilled to see John Boyega in there.

Super excited for new Star Wars but I’m not going to lie, I initially thought the trailer might be a joke. — Chris Scott (@kariyanine) November 28, 2014

X-wing shot in the Star Wars trailer had me drooling. — Billy Perry (@OperatorPerry) November 28, 2014



I see a guy with a cross-guard on his lightsaber and I’m pretty much thinking “Jedi Hipster.”

Listen, I understand that practical use of the lightsaber hilt. I get it. But goddamn does it look like something Criss Angel would draw. — Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) November 28, 2014



That Star Wars trailer is pretty killer…

Pretty sure I saw a woman riding a giant biscuit in that Star Wars trailer. She may have been chasing the anxious soccer ball. — Aidan Morgan (@palinode) November 28, 2014



Just saw a Fox News host do a “live long and prosper” in a segment on the new Star Wars trailer.

Hard to tell from trailer but plot of new Star Wars is Jedi and Sith team up to win dance contest, save community center. — TheFaust (@FaustMN) November 28, 2014



The Star Wars trailer had lots of stuff I recognize! I remember it from previous Star Wars movies! A+

Was anyone else just as fascinated as I was by the soccer/football playing droid in the new Star Wars trailer? Anyone? Just me…! — Lisa Hoang (@lisa_hoang) November 28, 2014



Star Wars fans love the new trailer so much, they will wait 72 hours to start poking holes and complaining about it instead of the usual 48
