Father Roderick is basically all of us.

When you hear "priest reacts to Star Wars", most people will immediately think it's going to be some rage-fuelled, book-burning rant about "false idols". But you'll be pleased to know that Father Roderick Vonhögen's video reaction to the latest and greatest trailer for upcoming seventh instalment The Force Awakens is far from the expectation. SPOILER: He's a big nerd. 

The priest's real-time reaction to the trailer, which has become an instant fan favourite, has almost reached a million views after he posted it this week. And it's not hard to see why: the way his face lights up as early on as the first shot, and the way he yells in excitement at almost every little thing in the trailer is surprising, adorable, and very, very relatable.

We've seen a LOT of internet reaction to this trailer for the upcoming movie, but this is a definite favourite. Check it out below.

And of course, if you want to watch along and geek out with Father Roderick, you can see the newest trailer for The Force Awakens in full here.
