Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens behind-the-scenes Comic-Con reel


The force is strong with this one

While there was no new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, there was a special behind-the-scenes reel that was screened for the packed crowd at Hall H. The behind-the-scenes footage emphasizes the practical effects of the new Star Wars film, and has a couple of new and familiar faces.

Guys! It's Nien Nunb!

According to The AV Club, the reel made Chris Hardwick cry. (Probably because of seeing Nien Nunb.)

Also, Star Wars the Flamethrower™!

Following the behind-the-scenes footage, cast members Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford took the stage. Ford received a raucous ovation and is reportedly doing okay after surviving an Indiana Jones-style plane crash earlier this year.

J.J. Abrams then invited the entire Hall H crew to a free Star Wars concert, with a group of stormtroopers on hand to escort the crowd to the event.

Share your thoughts on the Comic-Con reel in the comments. Feel free to nerd out over Nien Nunb as well.
