You may have forgotten about Collider, the sci-fi film initially announced in 2012 with Edgar Wright attached to direct and J.J. Abrams producing. Since then, Wright departed Ant-Man and began prepping two new projects, including Baby Driver — but Collider has not been forgotten, and the project has just picked up a new writer to take a crack at the screenplay.

If you’re the Star Wars fan who loves to be teased with lots of hints and clips about the upcoming movies then J.J. Abrams is basically your Darth Vader. Abrams hates to tease people with lots of hints and clips; he prefers to keep as much of his movies hidden from view for as long as humanly possible. His Bad Robot team practices a code of omerta that would make the Mafia blush.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re getting what looks to be a revitalizing installment in the franchise, something to help make the bad memories of the prequel trilogy disappear. It’s an intimidating challenge, but everything we’ve seen in the trailers and heard in early reports leads us to believe that director J.J. Abrams has largely accomplished that impossible task. We don’t know exactly how much of the prequels Abrams ignored while making The Force Awakens, but we do know one particular bit of canon that he purposely left out.

Harrison Ford might be a superhero. This, according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, who was on set for Ford’s unfortunate accident last year, when a hydraulic door broke his leg. (As Abrams’ describes it in the clip above, his ankle was at a, gulp, 90-degree angle to the rest of his body. Ew.) Thankfully, Ford was okay. Then he later got into a plane crash and was mostly okay after that too. Because, again, Harrison Ford is a superhero.

Last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel has already gone down as one of the biggest triumphs in Comic-Con history. While there wasn’t a new trailer or new footage, there was something special in the air. The enthusiasm of the cast, old and new, was palpable. A behind-the-scenes featurette moved the audience to tears. Even grumpy ol’ Harrison Ford bothered to show up and he…actually smiled? A lot? And yes, there is video evidence of this phenomenon because the whole hour-long panel has made its way online (and it’s all nice and official, too).
