Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams is so happy to have fans lining up overnight to see the trailer for his new film that he's bought them all pizza, according to numerous Twitter accounts from the scene.
The trailer is expected to to debut tomorrow morning as part of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, and while the livestream of the event is expected to go out over the Internet simultaneously with the live presentation, fans still obviously want to be in the room as the first new Star Wars film in a decade debuts footage that's expected to include Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo onscreen for the first time since Return of the Jedi.

The film is headed for North American theaters on December 18.
The art above, by the way, is from an image by Joe Corroney and Brian Miller, who are presenting at the show.
According to Corroney, this will be a FREE (and very limited) promotional 12" x 18" print available at our booth #1111 each day during Star Wars Celebration for anyone who stops by while supplies last, no purchase is required. Thank you for supporting our work and I hope everyone enjoys this new art. We look forward to seeing you in Anaheim soon!
