Without question, the biggest event at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con was The Star Wars panel and it was well worth the wait.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams knew fans were hungry and he fed them exactly what they wanted. In attendance were the newer cast members like John Boyega, Adam Drive, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, and Daisy Ridley.
Of course he also brought out the main players making a return from from the original trilogy like Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.
But the main event was the behind-the-scenes video reel Abrams unleashed on the audience and because we live in an awesome time, it’s already up online for you to enjoy.
All the rumors of Abrams going back to a pre-CGI “Star Wars” and implementing more practical effects is confirmed in many ways throughout this reel with some insane new characters and sets.
Here’s the reel and some highlighted stills:
Hopefully this guys is a major player, because he looks badass.
Your first look at Princess Leia.
Oscar Isaac is being taken to the slammer.
A storm trooper with a flame thrower… NBD.
Probably the coolest shot of the reel… I can’t wait for this movie.
