It’s the moment everyone who attending this year’s San Diego Comic-Con was waiting for — The “Star Wars” panel.
And it didn’t disappoint.
“The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams came with a lot of surprises up his sleeve. From bringing out cast members ranging from the new breed like John Boyega, Adam Drive, Oscar Isaac, Gwendoline Christie, and Daisy Ridley to the legends from the original trilogy returning for the upcoming film like Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.
Abrams even invited all of the six thousand-plus in attendance at Hall H to come join him to a “Star Wars” concert.
But the biggest highlight was the behind-the-scenes video package Abrams showed to the audience. And thank God for the Internet, because it’s already gone online.
And it is VERY revealing.
Abrams is going back to the pre-CGI "Star Wars" glory days and using a lot of practical effects. As you can see with this character featured in the video.

The cgi didn't bother me that much. Nor did the fact that everything is shiny and new, which makes sense because it was before the empire took hold and militarized everything. My issue with the prequels is that I felt the story was rushed towards the end. Anakin switched to the dark side WAY too fast IMO. Would have preferred a slow turn to the dark side.

Looks like Star Wars is the theme this coming Christmas. Two Star Wars games are being released right before the holiday season also.
Battle front 3 is releasing a month before the movie to help get the force flowing.
