Watch Now! STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Comic-Con 2015 Reel direct from SDCC!Written by James Zahn
Moments ago, the much-anticipated STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS panel wrapped at Comic-Con International in San Diego, with the entire principal cast of the film - Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford - appearing alongside filmmaker J.J. Abrams, Producer and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Writer Lawrence Kasdan. At the close of the panel, the group and those in attendance followed composer John Williams to "another location" to witness a live STAR WARS concert (under the escort of First Order Stormtroopers). One of many highlights of the panel was the debut of a special reel that was designed to take viewers inside the creation of THE FORCE AWAKENS, and that footage has arrived in an official form for you to watch right now.
