Star Wars – The Force Awakens – SDCC Behind the Scenes Reel
Many of those of us who grew up in the 70’s, remember the behind-the-scenes glimpses that were critical to the Star Wars Experience. In the days before the Internet, the Wikipedia, the Wookipedia, the video games, the Role Playing Games by West End and the Expanded Universe by LucasBooks, there were three ways continue enjoying the movies.
The first was to play with KENNER toys. The second was to wear out your first VCR tapes. The third was to dive into the Behind-The-Scenes materials.
Whether it was to soak in the documentaries about the making of the magic behind the myths or spending hours pouring over Ralph McQuarrie sketchbooks, behind-the-scenes glimpses have been a part of the connection between The Maker and The Fans since 1976 with a tiny booth at the 1976 San Diego Comic-Con manned by Mark Hamill and a small team of creatives and publicists.
So, it is a welcome sight that this tradition of sharing between The Makers and The Fans continues with the wonderful Behind-The-Scenes reel presented at the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con. And now, with the Internet…it can be shared with the world of fans.
