The film, titled The Force Awakens, is being released in theaters across the world this weekend, and the release will also mark the beginning of a celebration on the planet of Star Wars.
On Friday, the official Star Wars Twitter account shared a video from the production of a new Star Wars: The Force Unleashed documentary about the making of the original 1977 film, Star Wars Celebration, which follows a team of five filmmakers from around the world.
The video features interviews with filmmaker and longtime Star Wars fan, Mark Hamill, as well as producer/director Jason Blum, who is currently working on a film about Star Wars fans that he will be premiering at Star Wars Celebrations in Toronto.
“We’ve got a really exciting Star Wars documentary coming out in 2018,” said Blum in the video.
“I want to be able to tell you all about it, but there are a lot of details that are missing, but it will be one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had in a long time.”
Blum also spoke about how the film was filmed and why he felt it was important to include his favorite character, Luke Skywalker, in the film.
“I’m not a big fan of Luke Skywalker,” said Hamill.
“It’s something that’s very, very important to me, and I really love the idea of him in a film.
So, I was really excited to be asked to participate in that and do it with some of my favorite characters in the universe.””
There’s a lot to get to know about him in the documentary, and that’s just one of those things where the filmmakers and the filmmakers did a really nice job.
They had me on board, and they were just very careful with what I was able to do and what they were able to put in there.”
Hamill said the film’s focus is on the making and the making-of of the film, but he’s also talking about the effects of the creation of the Star Wars franchise, including the creation and development of new technologies like 3D-printing and laser cutting.
“There was a lot that was happening behind the scenes, and it was a really cool experience to see what the process was,” said Han Solo.
“So, there’s a couple of interesting points that I wanted to talk about with the movie that I didn’t really want to go into too much depth.”
The video also features the voices of George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, John Williams, Peter Mayhew, and Mark Hamil.
It also features a new trailer featuring footage from The Force and a new video that stars the characters Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron.
The film opens in theaters in the United States on Dec. 18.
