10 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Facts From a Galaxy Far, Far Away


OK, considering 'Star Wars: Episode 7' doesn't come out for another year and the only footage we've seen from the movie is 88-seconds long and we still don't even know any of the characters names, you might think that there's not a lot to know about J.J. Abrams' secretive 'Star Wars' movie. We find your lack of faith disturbing! In this very special bonus episode of You Think You Know Movies, we're dropping some galactic knowledge on you. The facts are strong with this one!

While 'Star Wars 7' is a completely modern movie (even filmed using the fancy IMAX cameras), it's impressive just how much of a throwback it is. Abrams and his crew even developed unused designs from the original 'Star Wars' including an early sketch of R2-D2 to create that adorable rolling ball droid you saw in the new trailer.

‘You Think You Know Movies?’ is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the cinematic worlds of your favorite movies and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known. We’ve already tackled ‘Star Wars,’ ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Spider-Man,’ but now, with ‘Star Wars 7’ on the way, it’s time to look back at an adventure from a galaxy far, far away.

Watch more installments of ‘You Think You Know Movies?’ below and let us know in the comments what movies we should cover next!
