The pressure to create a film that remains true to it’s predecessors and will also live up to the expectations of devoted fans is undeniably no small task. The film takes place just before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, and a newly released featurette shows the cast and crew discussing the joy and magic of creating an entirely new film, as well the solidarity among the rebels in their mission to steal the Death Star plans and much more.
