You may or may not have noticed that the internet went a little Star Wars crazy yesterday—and rightfully so. On the first day of the Star Wars Celebration convention, director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy not only unveiled the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but they brought out the three lead characters (played by John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac), some original trilogy actors (Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels), the new stormtroopers, and even the new droid BB-8, who I can’t believe is fully practical.
If you missed out on the fun, or just want to experience it again, Disney has released a slew of official photos from the event and on-stage happenings. You can check them out below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18th.
