As was confirmed in the behind the scenes featurette at Comic-Con, we know that Simon Pegg has a minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — it’s not one you’ll notice when the film hits theaters, since the actor was entirely covered in an alien costume. But the fact that Pegg wanted to appear in the film, even in a totally unnoticeable part, is proof positive of his Star Wars fandom. In the spirit of that fandom, Pegg sat down for an interview where he ranked all six of the previous Star Wars films.

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.

Marvel abstained from Comic-Con this year and Lucasfilm didn’t bring any new Star Wars footage to San Diego (that behind the scenes featurette was great, though), but we knew we wouldn’t have to wait much longer for Disney to show off these two highly anticipated properties — the studio’s D23 expo is approaching, and sure enough, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar will all have a major presence.

It wasn’t long ago that Pegg himself revealed that Daniel Craig is playing a Stormtrooper in the film, but what does Craig himself have to say about that? “F—king hell!”
