If there were any lingering doubts about the popularity of Star Wars in the year 2015, Star Wars Celebration killed them. Ruthlessly. When the the live-streamed panel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered the second trailer for J.J. Abrams’ wildly anticipated sequel, you could feel the internet quiver and shake underneath the weight of the hype. It was a staggering event that made the next few geek-friendly trailers released in the following days feel like small potatoes in comparison. And yes, this hyperbole is backed up by raw numbers: the second trailer for The Force Awakens shattered the record for most trailer views in 24 hours.

If you saw any of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens live stream from Star Wars Celebration, there were two immediate takeaways. One: that trailer tho. Two: BB-8, the new ball droid, who might just be the cutest thing ever. (Someone already even got a BB-8 tattoo!) It wasn't his presence in the Star Wars trailer (which was limited to just a very brief appearance), but his live appearance. It's one thing to pull this off in a movie where strings, rods and tracks can be digitally erased, but live on stage in front of an audience of thousands is a completely different how did Disney and Lucasfilm do this?

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.
