The new Star Wars will not open in cinemas until December, but it is attracting huge interest online. Pre-sales tickets for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' went on yesterday and broke all ticket . In the USA, the nation's largest online ticket , Fandango, said it had so many visitors that its site crashed. It had to apologise to people who could not visit the site. A Fandango said: "For Star Wars, we have already sold eight as many tickets as we did on the first day of sales for the record holder." He added: "The enthusiasm for this year's most anticipated is out of this world and we expect it to continue all the way to its on December 18."

'The Force Awakens' is the seventh movie to be released in the Star Wars . Disney released the film's latest trailer on Monday night and it soon went worldwide. Many top international news covered the story in their prime time news . The trailer currently has 13 million views on YouTube and this is likely to get a lot bigger. Box office Phil Contrino said the movie could also break box office records when it opens. It is possible it will be the highest movie ever made. Mr Contrino said: "The Force Awakens will hit $1 billion without . If it's really good, it could cross $2 billion." Star Wars fans will be to know that plans are already in for Star Wars VIII and IX.
