This Priest LOVES The New 'Star Wars' Trailer

by Kaitlin Reilly

It's been a very exciting week for Star Wars fans. The new trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII dropped on Thursday, and with it the jaws of plenty of stoked fans. The trailer certainly makes the new film look amazing, but perhaps no one was as excited about it as this Catholic priest. Father Roderick Vonhogen — a.k.a. "The Geek Priest" — is a professed Star Wars fanatic who produces the podcast "The Secrets of Star Wars" and is naturally incredibly hyped about the upcoming flick, which you'll know instantly by watching his reaction video to the new trailer.

Father Roderick is all wide-eyed glee and smiles while watching the new trailer, and it's like watching a kid open his presents on Christmas morning. It's clear that Star Wars is a major part of his life — he knows the names for everything that the new trailer references instantly, gapes at the cinematography, and, of course, freaks out over Chewbacca and Hans Solo's appearance at the end of the trailer. Best part? Father Roderick's choice of exclamation is "Holy cow!"

Check out Father Roderick's amazing reaction video below. It's really too cute for words.

May the force be with you.
