I have been a Stars Wars fan since the age of five. Am I a die hard? I wouldn’t classify me as a die hard, as in dressing up in costumes and the whole bit, but I definitely have watched the original trilogy over and over again during my childhood. I often played make believe where I was Hans and Leia’s daughter, with whom the Force was ever so strong, and I always kicked major patootie of course. Gah!!! I’m so excited about the newest feature film!! The lucky Comic-Con attenders got an epic galactic surprise in the form of a behind the scenes reel! Read all about it…

Fans at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H were treated to a special look behind the scenes of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS byDirector J.J. Abrams, Producer and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Writer Lawrence Kasdan. The filmmakers were joined on stage by cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford to the surprise and delight of fans.
