Today, a brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens featurette premiered at Comic-Con Experience in Brazil during a presentation hosted by Producer Bryan Burk. The featurette is now available for everyone to see, and is included here! Lucasfilm and visionary director J.J. Abrams join forces to take you back again to a galaxy far, far away as Star Wars returns to the big screen with Star Wars: The Force Awakens this holiday season.
This latest sneak peek doesn't give us any new scenes from Star Wars 7. But there is plenty of never before seen behind-the-scenes footage that should make fans happy. We get to hear from Daisy Ridley, who stars as desert scavenger Rey, and we get to see Mark Hamill out of costume discussing the legacy of the franchise. The coolest moments in the featurette come from newcomer John Boyega. We get his reaction to seeing the Millennium Falcon for the first time on set, and we get to watch as he has Harrison Ford sign his Han Solo doll. This is what Daisy Ridley has to say about the movie in this latest preview.
"Star Wars is a story about people finding their place in the world. These characters, their lives, though they are in a galaxy far, far away...It's a journey that people can relate too. I feel honored that I've been allowed to continue the journey. This part of my Star Wars journey is quite different now. Because now, I'm part of the family."
The Star Wars galaxy is a dangerous place. Epic Battles. Remote worlds. Strange creatures. And deadly threats at each turn. A long time ago a group of heroes banded together to save the galaxy from an Evil Empire. A dark new threat promises to destroy everything they've fought for. Now it's time for a new generation of heroes. Rey, a scavenger searching for answers. And Finn, a rogue Stormtrooper looking for something to fight for. They team up with a mysterious droid named BB-8. These three must make a choice. Continue their journey alone. Or work together to defeat the dark side.
