Yes, while we spent yesterday screaming our heads off and then composing ourselves long enough to pick apart the mysteries of The Force Awakens' first trailer, the artists of the Internet set to work - and have already made some excellent fan art to celebrate the new movie. Here's a look at some of the coolest so far.

The new look of the Empire's finest (and rarely the most accurate) Stormtroopers was a constant presence in the wave of Fan art that followed the trailer yesterday, whether it was on its own:

Or as part of a larger poster celebrating the trailer as a whole:
But the main thing that most people fixated on was of course, the mysterious dark side character's new, 'Crossguard' Lightsaber. It's the one unifying thing of almost all the art - perhaps the trailer's most iconic symbol, even with the glorious Falcon making an appearance. Some people championed it:

Hats off to the legendary comics artist Phil Noto though, who might just have trumped the rest of the world with this INCREDIBLE poster featuring John Boyega and Daisy Ridley's characters:
Gorgeous. Seen any good The Force Awakens are since yesterday? Maybe done some yourself? Show it off in the comments!
