Hi everyone! Anii here! I designed this site for Tim & we collab on Ode Comic (oh and we’re totally gettin’ married this fall ^_~) Tim is letting me guest post some stuff here.
Alright so at SDCC this weekend, Star Wars debuted this amazing behind-the-scenes peek! If you haven’t seen it, here is the video.
There are a TON of behind the scenes clips and you could pour over it for days, but below are some of my personal favorite stills and things that caught my eye. I will say I’m stoked to see the use to puppets, physical film, and Han Solo, Rey & Finn together~~! I think that seeing such cool stuff behind the scenes gives me so much excitement and anticipation (and faith) in this film!
Ok Let’s Begin~~~ (Click on the images to view them larger)
This new alien is rad!! And check out the inspiration board wall!! I spy a Godzilla poster, Bossk, Lemur-aliens (which are totally in Clone Wars) and uhh pink balloons? (also can we talk about the skeleton hand over the partition??? haha!)
Dig it- an Admiral Ackbar reference! And some sick looking aliens.
Love all these cool costumes and alien designs. And more of those balloon things…
I liked that there is a green-screen person not sure if they are manipulating something or a prop? Also looks like BB-8 & Rey.
I just really love this shot! Also really dig the ship~
I know it’s not canon but Daisy Ridley’s hoodie is too cute!! I wonder if crew got personalized gear– I mean.. I’m sure they did…
I’m diggin’ the droids in this shot. And LOOK! An Ithorian?
Some more really cool background aliens!
And more aliens in process… how cool!
Absolutely LOVE the details and painting on this. What amazing work! Plus Yesss Rebel Crest!
Blurry shots- maybe color keys or a story board? Looks like these are all in the sand.
More neat background characters and a dude giving out water.
Hey it’s this dude again! The bottom part of his face seems to be the mouth? Also some more fabric swatches are visible.
I liked that when they panned to this ship, the crew is hidden in it working on the set.
Look at c3po! There he is….
OK so this screen grab is fantastic! Why? Because there are at least TWO lady pilots!!
All the background sets look fantastic! Also so cute to see the co-stars getting along so well!
Princess Leia! She has an Endor-feel- very military and commanding. I wonder who this bearded guy is she might be talking to? Check out the other lady pilot (?) here again. And that yellow robot is pretty awesome as well.
This is just plain fun!!!
This shot is great!! Rey & Finn with Han in the Millennium Falcon
Other stuff to check out are how cool the destroyed tie(?) fighters look — this painting by https://twitter.com/andreewallin is too rad!
