The force looks strong in this one.

The next best thing to a trailer was unveiled to Star Wars fans at Comic-Con: a behind-the-scenes look at shooting locations, characters, and set construction from the forthcoming film. A panel discussion was led by Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams, along with new actors in the film, plus much-anticipated appearances by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. This was Ford's first publicity appearance since a plane crash last March.

Following the talk, fans were treated to live Star Wars music by the San Diego Symphony in the park. Listening to a symphony orchestra in the park is probably the classiest event to ever happen at Comic-Con. Listeners received toy lightsabers for the concert, and Harrison Ford even used a lightsaber as a cane to make light of his recent injury.
