The new featurette includes tons of cool behind-the-scenes clips from the upcoming movie, offering a look at the film's sets, props, costumes, stunts, creatures, and characters. Likewise, interview snippets from cast & crew members, including Anthony Daniels, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, are peppered throughout as well.
