SDCC: WATCH Star Wars The Force Awakens behind the scenes reel

July 11th, 2015 by Saxon Comments


Bit of good news and a bit of bad news for all you Nerf Herders out there…

First up the bad – Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Lucasfilm do NOT have any plans to debut a new trailer during the weekend at SDCC, so despite earlier rumours about a new look at the movie featuring Luke Skywalker, we will be getting no further hints or details on the Epiosde VII plot any time soon.

However that leads us nicely to the good news – JJ Abrams debuted a behind the scenes reel of footage from the new movie which is, as far as I’m concerned, better than any trailer.  The reel gave us a look at all of the practical sets and creatures seen in the film as well as concept art and brief behind the scenes shots of the actors looking like they’re having a genuine blast during and between takes, and why wouldn’t they – it’s Star Wars!  The reel was a pure nostalgia overload – and that final shot of Han and Leia in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon?  Man tears.

Watch it for yourself below, but be warned – this is a real rollercoaster of emotions.
