The new “Star Wars” protagonists got good and emotional watching themselves in the latest trailer for “The Force Awakens,” and Instagram has the video evidence.

First up, John Boyega attentively watched the commercial — which debuted during ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” — on TV, wearing a very shiny shirt. He was captured confidently repeating “Yep. Yep. Yep.” over and over again.

But Boyega wouldn’t stay so cool throughout: The tail-end of the thing caused him to lose it and jump over the couch.

A more subdued Daisy Ridley tuned in via her iPhone while in bed. The woman behind Rey was moved to tears, declaring, “Oh my God, it’s amazing.”

Based on the Internet’s take, both were right.

“Stars Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” takes place 30 years after Episode VI. The highly anticipated J.J. Abrams sequel zooms into theaters on Dec. 18.
