‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Documentary Teasers Take Us Behind the Scenes of 2015’s Biggest Film

     March 14, 2016


If you’re a cinephile, then you’re probably a fan of poring over special features and extras included on Blu-rays. Sadly, as the home video market shrinks, worthwhile extras are becoming harder and harder to find, but there are still diamonds in the rough—you can always count on a solid Blu-ray from David Fincher, and Criterion continues to knock it out of the park. And luckily, for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney and Lucasfilm aren’t cutting any corners. Included on the Force Awakens Blu-ray are a collection of deleted scenes, a number of featurettes, and the best of them all: a feature-length documentary on the making of the movie.

This was one of the most secretive productions in history, so to be able to get a full-access look behind the scenes of J.J. Abrams’ Mystery Box is highly enticing, as is the opportunity to see how The Force Awakens came together from start to finish. Disney and Lucasfilm have unveild a couple of teaser trailers specifically for the documentary, and they don’t disappoint. That famous table read is covered in full, and we get a look at Harrison Ford filming that scene.

But you won’t have to wait until April to hear about Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey. Collider’s own Perri Nemiroff is down in Austin at SXSW and is attending a screening of the documentary as we speak, so look for her review on the site soon.

For now, take a look at the Star Wars documentary via the two teasers below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available on Digital HD on April 1st and Blu-ray and DVD on April 5th.
