Here's what happened when we tackled the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon, the largest LEGO set ever released.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on iTunes and other digital download services today and with it comes the in-depth bonus Secrets of “The Force Awakens”: A Cinematic Journey. There’s the sheer giddiness of newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega and a crew tasked with revisiting George Lucas’s iconic galaxy tempered by the unadulterated neuroticism of director J.J. Abrams (who says he felt “primal terror” going into the first day of shooting). For months before the film’s release, Fisher, 59, was outspoken about the difficulty of returning to her career-defining role as Princess Leia.
The newest Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, generated record levels of excitement by promising the old Star Wars: director J.J. Abrams brought back the franchise’s original stars and spoke endlessly of returning the magical “feel” of George Lucas’s first trilogy. It would be a throwback, a link to the charming original films and nothing like the CGI-heavy prequels, the bastard stepchildren of Star Wars movies. The truth is that while the plot of the new film adhered to the journey — in many places beat-for-beat — depicted in A New Hope, Abrams and his team were not exactly working with the now-ancient tools that Lucas and his team engineered in the ’70s.
