A highly anticipated trailer for the upcoming Star Wars movie has fans buzzing.

Tickets went on sale on Monday night, and so many fans tried to buy them, websites selling them crashed.

Glenn Mallory waited until halftime of Monday Night Football to see the long awaited Star Wars trailer.

“I think it’s one of those series that spans generations,” Mallory said.

 When tickets went on sale, he tried to get a few but struggled.

That happened to countless ticket buyers, as websites crashed.

“Eventually I got the tickets so I felt good about that,” Mallory said.

While it may be tough to get the movie tickets now, there is plenty of new merchandise, however it is unclear how long it will last.

At West Farms Mall, the Disney Store had a large display, and some of the hottest items around.

“With the movie coming out, coupled with the fact it’s going to be Christmas, it’s going to be the major force here,” said Guy Perry, of the Disney Store.

The same is true at Omni Comics and Cards in Wethersfield.

Owner Scott Wool had more than 250 orders to send out by the time he opened the doors on Tuesday, and the demand is only heating up.

The only hope now is that the movie doesn’t disappoint.
