To say Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the most highly anticipated panel at Comic-Con is an understatement, and judging by the massive turnout, the film is going to be the biggest blockbuster of 2015.
And while fans didn't see any new footage from Episode 7 on Friday, director JJ Abrams treated them to a behind-the-scenes montage that showed off some very familiar faces.
Among them, Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia. This was the first full glimpse we've gotten of Luke Skywalker's sister.
Among the other highlights were Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o wearing a motion-capture headpiece, Star Trek actor Simon Pegg in an alien costume, and of course, Harrison Ford as the still-dashing Han Solo.
Carrie, Harrison and Mark Hamill addressed fans in San Diego.
Harrison, who survived a scary plane crash earlier this year, seemed especially reflective:
"It was great to be back … It's an emotional rounding of the experience we had in the first films."
"It was a little bit like before, but we looked more melted this time."
Like you, we can't wait until Christmas for The Force Awakens. Ch-ch-check out the behind-the-scenes footage (below):

John Stamos has checked himself into rehab. Last month, the actor was arrested for DUI, and when the cops pulled him over they immediately sent him to a hospital because he was so out of it!

That night, the cops were called pretty early in the evening -- at 7:45 p.m. -- and if the 51-year-old was so under the influence that he needed to be rushed to receive medical attention, he was probably drinking heavily for a while.
We learned now that the Hollywood heartthrob has entered a residential facility for substance abuse.
We're glad the Fuller House star took matters into his own hands, and we hope he gets the help he needs to live a safe and healthy life.
