For nearly an hour Thursday morning, hordes of Star Wars fans online (and in Anaheim, California) sat watching with rapt attention as Star Wars Celebration — a gathering of Force fans — hosted a Q&A with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and several cast members. Old stars (including Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher) returned, new stars such as John Boyega and Daisy Ridley were introduced, and a lovable little ball droid named B-88 stole our hearts. There were so many great moments, it’d be impossible to narrow it down the best highlights.

And yet, we did it anyway.

A taste of what you’ll find in the video above: Director J.J. Abrams telling fans about all the practical sets and effects that they had created; Force Awakens star Oscar Isaac channeling Han Solo and claiming his character is “the best freakin’ pilot in the galaxy”; John Boyega doing his best cranky Harrison Ford impression; and the reunion of original heroes, including Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels as well as Hamill and Fisher (the latter of whom,  we learn, will not be wearing a metal bikini or hair buns in this new film).

Watch the highlight reel above — and then check out the new trailer below!
