Star Wars trailer reaction 'extraordinary', says Andy Serkis

Actor Andy Serkis says fans' reaction to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has been "extraordinary."

The 88-second trailer for the film has amassed more than 40 million YouTube views in 72 hours and inspired a series of spoofs, including a "George Lucas edition", which pokes fun at the director's poorly received prequels.

At the premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies in Leicester Square, he also confirmed that he is the voiceover on the trailer.
