Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center has been the host of some of the biggest movies and television shows ever during San Diego Comic-Con. But one of the biggest events during our years of attending had to be at Comic-Con 2015 – Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
As usual for Hall H, the lines were enormously long. Fans started lining up hours and hours before the Hall H “wristbands” would be given out (a first come, first served wristband that guarantees that you’ll have a seat in Hall H). Fans who were lucky enough to get into Hall H, and who stayed until the Star Wars panel started, were treated to this special look behind-the-scenes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In addition to the video, fans were able to listen to Director J.J. Abrams, Producer and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Writer Lawrence Kasdan speak about Star Wars Episode VII. The filmmakers were also joined on the Hall H stage by cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.
For Star Wars fans, being the same room with the stars, listening to them, seeing them in person, and seeing the special behind-the-scenes look, was more than enough.
But the excitement didn’t end there.
At the end of the Hall H presentation, the entire Hall H audience (which means more than 6,000 fans) were invited join the cast and filmmakers outside at the Embarcadero Marina Park South for a surprise Star Wars Fan Concert. The concert was by the San Diego Symphony, where they performed the classic Star Wars music from John Williams.
Talk about amazing. This was certainly the talk of the entire San Diego Comic-Con and I imagine it will be talked about for many years to come. Fans were even treated to light sabers and fireworks.
