Watch: New 'The Force Awakens' Featurette on the Star Wars Legacy
"What happens to these characters we know and love - it's a world I want to get back to immediately." Lucasfilm has unveiled another new featurette for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, premiered at Brazil Comic-Con, showing some never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage. Not that we need to see any more footage to be sold at this point, but who cares, the more the merrier especially if it includes a look at the full-size Millennium Falcon set piece. Director J.J. Abrams shows up in this often, as does Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and a few other special guests. Only two more weeks left.
Here's the new featurette from Brazil's Comic-Con for Star Wars: The Force Awakens from YouTube:
Here's the new character poster for Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac, also revealed with this video:
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, continuing the beloved original trilogy about Luke, Leia, Han & Chewie that ended in 1983, is directed by J.J. Abrams, of the films Mission: Impossible 3, Star Trek, Super 8 and Star Trek Into Darkness. The screenplay is written by Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Bodyguard) and J.J. Abrams, with Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm producing. This debut is the beginning of a brand new saga, with another trilogy planned for this storyline, with Rian Johnson and Colin Trevorrow lined up to direct. Disney, after acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012, will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters worldwide on December 18th.

I just realized that two actors from the Coens' Inside Llewyn Davis have now major roles in The Force Awakens (Isaac and Adam Driver). Just an interesting observation

It's beginning to get to that time where you don't want to go in with such high expectations that you'll be disappointed but you are hoping that it really blows you away.

I was watching Return of the Jedi last night, and I was hit with the dreadful realization that the new movie could have some awful prequel-like moments in it.... god, I hope not.

Hey bud, a bunch of us are watching the originals this Sunday and I hope I don't get that same feeling you got. I'll report back with a Vote Down if I do !!!

I'm hoping JJ doesn't even acknowledge the prequels....like no references to Coruscant, Django Fett, Naboo, or even the Sith....anyway....watching the originals was fun after not having seen them for a bunch of years. We giggled a lot (in a good way)...

I hope he pursues the reddit theory about jar jar binks being the bad guy behind the emperor. If he does it will have a profound effect on how the prequels are viewed. The evidence behind the theory is eerie and ridiculously convincing.

Ha! If only we could be so lucky...

Even though we've seen some of these images a thousand times in the last year or so... I STILL get goosebumps.
