The new Star Wars movie doesn't debut in cinemas until December, but it is already big news. Pre-sales tickets for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' broke records yesterday. The USA's largest online ticket seller, Fandango, said it had so many visitors that its site crashed. It apologised to people who had problems. It sold eight times more tickets than it did for the previous record movie. It added that enthusiasm for the movie was, "out of this world".

'The Force Awakens' is the seventh Star Wars movie. A trailer on Monday soon went viral. It already has 13 million views on YouTube. Many news stations showed the story. Movie analyst Phil Contrino said the movie could break records and be the highest earning movie ever. He said it could make $2 billion." Star Wars fans will be happy to know that plans are in place for Star Wars VIII and IX.
