NEW YORK, N.Y. - Oscar Isaac is as wowed by the new "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer as are its fans.

Isaac, one of the stars of the highly anticipated sequel, said the trailer was "pretty mind-blowing" during an appearance at Monday night's Gotham Independent Film Awards.

"I shot (the film) this summer and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life," the actor, who was nominated for a Gotham award for his role in "A Most Violent Year," told The Associated Press.

But when it came time to discuss the particulars of his character, Isaac was not about to reveal anything — including rumours that he's playing the son of Princess Leia and Han Solo.

"That's what you got from the trailer?" Isaac asked. "Hey, you run with that buddy. You take that and run with it."

When asked if he was Luke Skywalker's son, he laughed.

"I can't say a word. What are you doing? I'm not going to tell you . I can't say a word, man," Isaac said.

The official "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has been viewed more than 10 million times since it debuted on Friday. The J.J. Abrams-directed film is set for release in December of 2015.
