The most exciting panel at San Diego Comic-Con, on Star Wars: The Force Awakens was full of surprises. Harrison Ford took the stage, we found out Simon Pegg will be playing a creature in the movie and there was an exclusive Star Wars party afterward with free lightsabers and everyone at the panel was invited. But the biggest surprise out of the entire thing was this behind-the-scenes footage.

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.

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.
