Being in Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn’t exclude someone from geeking out over its new trailer.

John Boyega, like costar Daisy Ridley, filmed his reaction to watching the new tease after its debut on Monday.

First, though, he had to battle a different kind of evil force: Los Angeles traffic.

But when he was able to see the trailer, the actor goes progressively from calm nodding to excited nodding to full-on yelling and diving over a couch.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Dec. 18. Head here to see more celebrity reactions, and check out our gallery for a deeper dive into the trailer.
