Thirty years after defeating the Galactic Empire Hans Solo and his allies are back to face a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren and his army of Stormtroopers.

With the new Star Wars film just days away from being released we decided to give fans everywhere a glimpseĀ behind the scenes- including the original trilogy, the prequels (not too many don’t worry) and even some fromĀ Star Wars Episode VII BTS that are definitely not meant to be on the internet.

So feast your eyes on what Hans Solo, Princess Leia and even Chewy get up to behind the scenes:
