"Star Wars" fans found themselves in nerf-herder heaven during Sunday's American Music Awards. A new teaser debuted, the movie's first clip premiered and Harrison Ford introduced a Pentatonix tribute to John Williams' famous score.

The clip, an extension of a scene featured in the "Force Awakens" trailers, shows Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) running alongside BB-8 toward an explosion.

The new trailer comprises mostly footage seen in previous promos, but pay attention for a few new shots, including a character that, as Entertainment Weekly points out, looks a lot like Lando Calrissian’s Battle of Endor co-pilot, Nien Nunb.

Pentatonix, dressed in garb reminiscent of characters like Princess General Leia and Finn, sang the "Star Wars" title music before a full-scale orchestra joined for a medley of Williams' score. The AMAs convinced Ford to introduce the performance, but there's no word on how quickly his car pulled up to the arena to whisk him home right after.
