#StarWars Star Wars 7 the Force Awakens Comic Con Reel and Fan Surprise

Missed SDCC Fear Not!

So the entire geek-loving planet knows that the last four days were dedicated to San Diego Comic Con. Everybody who’s anybody was there for panel discussions, Q&A sessions, meet and greets, a whole slew of promo displays beyond your wildest dreams and more. San Diego Comic Con is the Superbowl of nerdom. Over here at The Fairytale Traveler we are uber stoked about an epic butt load of new films, current TV shows, toys and games, but nothing quite compares to the release of Star Wars 7 the Force Awakens.

So to commemorate our undying, unwavering bleeding hearts for the king of Comic Con and nerd loving universe, we are bringing you the awesome, hands down out the door, KICKASS Star Wars Comic Con Reel which gives you a behind the scenes look at the production of the most anticipated movie of the year. Up until today this was exclusive to SDCC fans and attendees at Hall H, now I get to share the nerdgasm with you!

 

So don’t hold back, don’t wait until later, silence the house, silence your boss, silence your children, pull over your car (you shouldn’t be reading and driving anyway dummy), and watch the

Star Wars 7 the Force Awakens Comic Con Reel!

 

 

YES!!!! SWEET!!!!!

Came to mind when this was released. I mean it really gives you an inside look at what’s going into the making of this film. This isn’t just technology laced with a revamped story board, this is movie magic! It’s a marriage of classic production techniques and modern film technology to deliver us a Star Wars we’ve only dreamed of. I don’t know about you but I am head over heels in LOVE with the making of this film. It may be the coolest production ever.

  1. WOW What a crazy and buzzing Star Wars event this would have been! I am a big Star Wars fan from long ago and think growing up on Star Wars we all tend to see the characters as our friend! I wish I was there and am sure the force was with you too!

  6. I love reading about Comic Con each year. I think a similar event came to Atlanta a few years ago. It was quite something to see all of the enthusiasts in costume. The energy was high and festive. I’m not much of a Star Wars of comic fan but I can definitely appreciate the energy surrounding it.

  7. Oh my goodness, this looks like so much fun! One day I’m going to take my husband to the San Diego Comic Con. I hear it’s an experience you cannot forget, and we are huge sci fi nerds. I just can’t imagine how much fun it would be. My son would probably be thrilled to come along, too.
