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.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, there’s been a bit of a commotion over Amy Schumer’s photo spread in GQ, which features the comedian and actor cheekily posing with Star Wars characters. Lucasfilm has officially — and repeatedly — expressed their disapproval online, while veteran Star Wars actor Mark Hamill is singing a very different tune.

Ah, mashup trailers — I have seen the greatest minds of my generation reduced to giggling lunatics at the mere sight of a pop culture mashup. The thing is, not many of them are actually good. T-shirts? Typically silly. Trailers? Eh. But every once in a while, a good one comes along, like this Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars mashup, which is way better than it has any right to be.

Guillermo del Toro is not making a Star Wars movie. At least not yet. But since he was at Comic-Con to promote his gothic haunted house movie Crimson Peak, he was asked about Star Wars. Because that’s how Comic-Con works. It turns out that the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim does have a dream Star Wars movie buried somewhere in the back of his brain and it makes perfect sense. He wants to make a Jabba the Hutt origin story.

Watch the Full ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Panel From Comic-Con 2015

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.
