The entire promo campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been an exercise in answering questions we didn’t even know we wanted the answers to. Will Jar Jar Binks make an appearance?

Also, if you were in need of more Force Awakens tidbits in advance of Monday’s trailer, ScreenCrush reports that the film’s runtime will be two hours and 16 minutes. Is this the single smallest amount of information you’ve ever heard about a film?
