SDCC 2015: Star Wars Wins Comic-Con

As if we didn't expect this. Star Wars took Hall H by storm yesterday and DOMINATED as cast from The Force Awakens took the stage, including three heroes near and dear to our hearts; Hal Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. ...I know they are real people..but shut up. It's Comic-Con.

Fans at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H were treated to a special look behind the scenes of Star Wars:The Force Awakens by director J.J. Abrams, producer and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and writer Lawrence Kasdan. The filmmakers were joined on stage by cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford to the surprise and delight of fans.

At the end of the Hall H presentation, the entire Hall H audience of more than 6,000 fans were all invited to continue the celebration and join cast and filmmakers at a surprise Star Wars Fan Concert. The San Diego Symphony performed the classic Star Wars music from John Williams at the Embarcadero Marina Park South....leaving poor Kevin Smith to believe he was taking the stage to the sound of crickets!! Luckily, the hall filled back up for our NJ brother...but I'm betting he wished he was with the rest of you waving light sabers at the I was! This would have been the one time I kicked myself for my "stay the hell away from Hall H" policy. Here's the highlights...

And now you can get comfy and watch the panel!

And some highlights from the concert...
