Star Wars Celebration kicked off Thursday morning at the Anaheim Convention in grand fashion, with the long-awaited panel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It didn't disappoint, either! There were plenty of surprise appearances and, as expected the debut of the first full-length trailer. Director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy were on hand to introduce the cast, with both new and legacy actors appearing on stage. Shortly afterwards, they all participated in a select number of interviews. And we have those for you today!

Arriving backstage at Star Wars Celebration to offer more insight into Star Wars: The Force Awakens were original Star Wars cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca). Joining them were newcomers John Boyega (Finn), Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron). We also get to see exciting back-stage footage from Star Wars Celebration and some of the panel itself.

So gather around and watch as the original cast unites with the new for some insightful information on what is possibly the most anticipated movie of not just 2015, but all time! Director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy also participated in the interviews and Q&A, and we have the exciting second trailer if you missed it the first time! Take a look:
