This year’s Star Wars Celebration kicked off yesterday in the best possible way. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel was a huge success beyond the premiere of the new trailer, giving cast and crew, old and new, a moment in the spotlight. And there was BB-8, the totally practical droid who looks poised to sell a couple million toys this Christmas. However, one of the most interesting parts of the panel was the series of behind-the-scenes photos that were projected throughout the discussion, showing off various sets and costumes. Now, those photos have made their way online.

One of the coolest features at this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration (in addition to the booth where you can get Jar Jar Binks’ face tattooed perfectly over your own face, okay I made that up) is the Star Wars: The Force Awakens costume and prop gallery, where you can peruse the clothes and gadgets used in the upcoming film by J.J. Abrams. Our man on the ground in Anaheim, Mike Sampson, has been snapping pictures left and right, and we’ve collected his best shots below.

The brand new Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer premiered this morning at Star Wars Celebration, as J.J. Abrams and the film’s cast showed off the footage to a packed audience of hardcore Star Wars fans. But, you don't have to be in Anaheim to get a new look at The Force Awakens: we've got the trailer for you right here, right now!
It’s a big day for Star Wars fans. Today kicks off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, a giant, Lucasfilm-sanctioned Star Wars convention where Disney will finally unveil the first full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So get ready for a full day of videos and images and news from the con, starting with this mysterious new Force Awakens promo art that’s popping up on social media. They offer the clearest look yet at new Force Awakens baddie (and hilted-lightsaber wielder) Kylo Ren and at lead Stormtrooper Captain Phasma.
Because Star Wars Celebration is delivering our first look at the new Star Wars: Episode 7 trailer (among other surprise things), anticipation is high. We're here in Anaheim and last night when doors opened at 6pm, fans rushed to begin the long overnight campout on the concrete floors of the Anaheim Convention Center. It's not a fun way to spend a night, but these are Star Wars fans who are dedicated to the cause. The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams is in town to introduce the new trailer and once he got wind of the massive line, he did right by them and had pizza delivered for every single person on line.

From Star Wars: Episode 7, to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, the details on four upcoming books are revealed, a few directors are apparently in contention for Star Wars: Episode 9, and Star Wars: Rogue One finds a composer.
When Rian Johnson was officially announced as the Star Wars: Episode 8 director last week, one name was conspicuously absent from the initial press release: J.J. Abrams. Among the producers listed — Kathleen Kennedy, Ram Bergman (Looper) and Johnson — Abrams was nowhere to be found. An updated release was later sent with Abrams noted as an Executive Producer, but it only fueled the flames that J.J. Abrams may be one-and-done with the Star Wars franchise. Not so fast.
