StarWars.com Thanks The Force Awakens Fans.

The official Star Wars website has issued a “thank-you” note to the fans for their continued support of the film – and along the way, they reveal some interesting details about the view metrics that the newest trailer has amassed in its first 24 hours of release.

 

After two record-breaking teasers, the full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted earlier this week, and we are humbled by the response. The sneak peek shown during ESPN’s Monday Night Football was seen by a TV audience of over 16 million, followed by an immediate release on YouTube, Facebook, and platforms worldwide. In just 24 hours, the trailer was viewed online more than 112 million times. That’s 128 million times globally in a single day! But more than numbers, there was discussion, there were reaction videos, there were fun memes. There were cheers and there were tears from fans young and old. We saw and loved it all, and it meant the world to the creators of the film. And we were equally blown away by the advance ticket sales.

Websites slowed, crashed, and became one with the Force. (There probably hasn’t been this big of a network jam in a galaxy far, far away since the Emperor’s trap in the Battle of Endor.) Incredibly — but not surprisingly — you set numerous records, including the biggest-ever 24 hours for advance sales in numerous countries. In the UK, more than 200,000 tickets were sold in the first day. In Norway, you braved subzero temperatures overnight to make sure you were among the first to see the film. Fortunately, there are still plenty of tickets to be had for opening weekend and beyond.

 

The full statement can be viewed at the link shown above.

 

The recent view metrics vastly eclipse the previous world-record held by the movie’s second teaser, which amassed 88 million views across all platforms in the the first day. The hype for this film has indeed awakened, and this movie is well on its way to being one of the most profitable films ever made. May the Force be with Lucasfilm.
