'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Is 100 Days Away...If You're In The UK

As if the national excuse to blow your paycheck on toys that was "Force Friday" wasn't good enough for some rabid Star Wars fans, the franchise's official UK presence has started a countdown to the release of "The Force Awakens" on Twitter, noting that the release is only 100 days away.

And yes, for those of you who have already been counting down, that number does mean that British subjects past and present will be seeing the film on December 17 -- a full 24 hours before it's released in America. Time to mute all your UK friends on Twitter, it would seem.

Directed by JJ Abrams, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie.
