On Friday July 9th, the Cast & Crew of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens attended a panel at the San Diego Comic Con. This brand new Behind The Scenes Featurette premiered during the panel, and it has now been released online as well.
In the three minute clip we get a great impression of how director J.J. Abrams and his crew really put the emphasis on original practical effects as much as possible, as we see lots of shots from the set in the Abu Dhabi desert. We also hear from Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, and we get to see the new three leads Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Daisy Ridley (Rey) and John Boyega (Finn) talk about their experiences on set.
You can also briefly see Domhnall Gleeson, Simon Pegg, Warwick Davis, Chewbacca/Peter Mayhew, C3PO/Anthony Daniels and Harrison Ford pop up.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens will be released in cinemas on December 17th.
