90 seconds of brand new Star Wars footage for today? Yes please.
What would you do if you came face to face with the Millennium Falcon IRL? Depending on your Star Wars fandom level, you might have a few different responses, like crying happy tears, shaking, and just completely freaking out. All those emotions might even be rolled into one! Thanks to a new Star Wars featurette, we know that complete freak out is the response John Boyega had first time he met the fastest ship in the galaxy.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens only 12 days away, there’s now a brand new video chock full of footage we haven’t seen before. Premiering yesterday at Comic Con Experience in Brazil, the video takes us behind the scenes with cast interviews, shooting locations, and yes, Star Wars cast member Boyega completely losing it first time he sees the Millennium Falcon. And then he loses it again when Harrison Ford signs his Han Solo action figure.
It’s actually really amazing to see Boyega so into Star Wars, because can you imagine if he was all, “meh” about the whole experience? His excitement only makes ME more excited. Next most excited might be Oscar Isaac, who plays pilot Poe Dameron. Someone needs to pinch him, because he can’t believe what’s happening. (During the cast’s Twitter Q&A the other night, it was actually revealed that Isaac would get so excited he’d “scream” every time he saw BB-8, so if that isn’t the cutest thing, I don’t know what is.)
Check out the featurette below for some major Star Wars feels for the day. December 18th can’t get her soon enough.
