It does seem that with everyday the world gets closer to the premiere of ‘The Force Awakens’ that we get yet another tidbit of video in the form of a teaser or a featurette just to wet our Star Wars appetites. Well, Saturday night at Comic Con in Brazil, another video was released with the focus being on the “legacy” of Star Wars. What was striking about the video was just the amount of giddiness that everyone seems to be demonstrating on set from the director (J.J. Abrams) to the actors (Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Issac, and Daisy Ridley). They all seem to be truly in awe of the idea that they get to bring back such an amazing franchise back to theaters. The other part of the video that stuck out to me is just the level of respect that everyone seems to have for Harrison Ford. About forty-five seconds into the video you witness John Boyega not only getting his Han Solo action figure getting autographed but actually hugging his fellow actor out of respect. The video doesn’t give away anything at all but it certainly does get any Star Wars fan with a pulse excited to see what will be the most highly anticipated film of 2015.
