A new behind the scenes IMAX featurette has arrived for Star Wars: The Force Awakens featuring new footage from the much-anticipated Star Wars film. The new video has director J.J. Abrams and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Gwendoline Christie discussing working on the set with the IMAX cameras. “That feeling of going to the movies and having a fully immersive, powerful, high-quality presentation of the film is something that is more valuable than ever and I think IMAX stands for that,” explained Abrams. “When you go to see a movie in that format you know you are going to get something that is the best version of going out to the movies.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in conventional and IMAX theaters on Friday, December 18, 2015. The cast also includes Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max Von Sydow.
