Viewers instantly flocked to social media sites to share their reactions after watching the final official trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which was released on Monday. While die-hard “Star Wars: Fans” were in awe and some even shed tears of joy, there were those who took insult to the movie’s preference for non-White characters.

There were several mixed reactions to the final official trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Some were filled with nostalgic emotions and said the preview gave them a lot of “feels.”

Others were reduced to tears including Twitter user @MikeSheaAP who said, “No media moment has brought more people together in tears of joy and reliving their youth than the new #StarWars trailer.” An apparent “Star Wars” fanboy named @DaveRapoza wrote on Twitter that he felt nostalgic watching the final trailer for “The Force Awakens.”

“That Star Wars trailer, oh god, the nostalgia waves crashing over me. Are they trying to kill us with the han ending?” he said.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stars Daisy Ridley (Rey) and John Boyega (Finn) were also thrilled to see the trailer. Ridley shared a video that showed her crying as she watched the trailer. Boyega on the other hand leapt with happiness after watching the preview. (See videos below)

However, there were also those who weren’t pleased with how the J.J. Abrams’ film highlighted non-white actors as their main characters. The hash tag #BoycottStarWarsVII soon trended on Twitter, asking for the film not to be released because of its “anti-white propaganda.” Someone had even created a Twitter account for the said hash tag in an attempt to recruit more supporters. However, so far it only has 193 followers.

The same user posted a follow-up tweet blaming the start of the propaganda to J.J. Abrams. The “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director is a “Jewish activist” and “an anti-white nut,” said the user calling itself “End Cultural Marxism.”

Another complaint from Twitter user @User Actions asked viewers to boycott the film because “it’s nothing more than a social propaganda piece that alienates it's core audience of young white males.”

This is not the first time that a “Star Wars” franchise has been attacked for its cultural and social references, according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR). Aside from “The Force Awakens,” the novel “Aftermath” was reportedly also bombarded with complaints from homophobic fans because it included an openly gay Imperial officer.
