Actor John Boyega has told director JJ Abrams to rush a new trailer for the upcoming film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“So connected with JJ [Abrams] and told him to hurry up with a trailer. Fingers crossed! That's all I can do. #injjwetrust,” Boyega wrote Wednesday on his Twitter account. The actor’s tweet came after unconfirmed reports in the media that the new trailer is overdue.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens’” last teaser trailer was released on Aug. 27 through the YouTube channel -- Star Wars Headquarters. In the video titled “Star Wars Episode 7 (VII): The Force Awakens Official Teaser Trailer 3: Kylo Ren vs Finn,” an unknown voice asks, “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” It has already gained 855,326 views as of Oct. 15.

Meanwhile, another trailer for the film will reportedly be released “soon,” which many “Star Wars” die-hard fans have earnestly been waiting for too long.
