— -- "Star Wars" fans have a reason to celebrate today.

The official "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer for Japan hit the Web, replete with never-before-seen footage and dialogue.

For starters, the newest clip features an extended look at Daisy Ridley's Rey and John Boyega's Finn, as well as BB-8.

Earlier this week, Boyega and Ridley gave fans more insight into their "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" roles

"I'm always interested in characters that start off one way and end another. I find it very boring to have to read a script where the character always knows what to do, knows who they are, has a blueprint for their lives," Boyega, 23, told the Hollywood Reporter.

"Finn isn't a guy you would expect to be involved in this story. The fact that he's a Stormtrooper. We don't [usually] go into [Stormtroopers'] pasts or lives much: how the dynamics work for them, how they were recruited — we don't ever really see much about the past there. It was interesting to me to have that kind of character."

Added Ridley, 23, of Rey, "The main difference is that [Rey] didn't have a family and I have a family that I'm close to. ... She faces a lot of challenges throughout the film, and the way she reacts to things I think is kind of the way anyone would. That's why I think she's so universal and brilliant: She's frightened but she faces up to what she needs to."

For all the action from the new trailer of the film, which hits theaters Dec. 18, watch the video, below.

Disney, the distributor behind the film, is the parent company of ABC News.
