As a member of the (very small) social media team here at Lucasfilm, I have the honor of reading, responding to, laughing at, loving, and sharing all of your Star Wars conversations every day. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet; every Friday, I’ll share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!
Oh, hey guys! Anything interesting happen this week? Anything you’d like to talk about? I know we haven’t done this in a while, so this week the Social Scanner strikes back with a very special Star Wars: The Force Awakens Freakout Edition.

Don't know why they're bothering to advertise the new Star Wars movie. Earth, the Milky Way, even galaxies far far away already got tickets.

My pops took me to see the original trilogy in a theater. This time I'm going to take him to see #TheForceAwakens.

The @starwars trailer is so good I am never going to watch a cat video again.

To wrap things up, a little Bonus BB-8! Is there anything he can’t do?
That’s just a tiny taste of the outpouring of Star Wars love this week. There most certainly has been an awakening. Did The Force Awakens’ trailer blow your mind? Did it leave you speechless? Let me know in the comments below!
