No, you're not at Comic-Con, but that doesn't mean you have to skip this preview of Star Wars Episode VII. Disney previewed video from The Force Awakens interspersed with behind-the-scenes chatter tonight in San Diego, and you can watch it after the break. You can enjoy Simon Pegg's appearance (he's playing an alien), and get a better idea of how this Star Wars flick is staying true to the old ones with "real sets, practical effects." The usual cast of characters and equipment are making an appearance, along with the cast we've seen in previous trailers. StarWars.com has a live blog of the panel too, so the only thing you're missing out on (you have the app, right?) is the post-reveal concert.
