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.

Lucasfilm and Disney have been keeping things pretty tight with promotional materials for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve only seen a handful of official photos and two trailers so far, and we won’t see another new trailer until sometime this fall. But John Boyega has a special gift for fans today: a new promotional photo from the film featuring the star alongside a very familiar face.

As confirmed by that behind the scenes footage that debuted at Comic-Con, we know that Simon Pegg has a cameo role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — okay, it’s not so much a cameo as it is a minor, unrecognizable background role. 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!”

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).

There was no new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens at this year’s Star Wars Comic-Con panel. Nor was there any exclusive footage or scenes from the film. But there was a short behind-the-scenes video so full of magic and wonder that it’s hard to watch without getting a little misty-eyed. Excuse us, but it’s getting a little dusty in here.
