Fans overwhelm ticket sellers, for the earliest-possible screenings of "The Force Awakens."

FOX News Radio's Bill Vitka reports:

The new 'Star Wars' trailer has made its debut. There were new faces. old friends, and a new threat from the Dark Side.

(Trailer) "There are stories about what happened... It's true... all of it... the Dark Side... a Jedi... they're real..."

That is the voice of Han Solo, Harrison Ford, narrating. Tickets to the new film were to go on sale after the trailer aired, instead, ticket sales began early.

And at Fandango and MovieTicket.com, demand was so overwhelming the websites crashed.

Screenings for "The Force Awakens" start as early as 7 p.m. on December 17... that is the Thursday before the official opening date.
