Fans queued for up to 10 hours just to get a glimpse of their heroes and the latest taste of the next installment of the Star Wars story.

One of the most anticipated films this year has teased fans with small snippets and trailers since rumours of it being made came about.

In the last trailer everyone exploded when Han Solo and Chewbacca appeared in the last shot to those famous words ‘Chewy were home.’

Now at Cominc-Con 2015 fans have not only been given the first taste of Luke Skywalker and Princess  Leia, but a very excitable Simon Pegg, who is living the dream most of those in the audience can only wish for, to be part of the Star Wars franchise.

The packed crowd also gave Harrison Ford a standing ovation, making his first appearance since his car crash..

But the real reason Star Wars enthusiast had squeezed into one of the halls at San Diego Symphony was to see what sneek peeks they could get of the new film.

And didn’t JJ Abrams and George Lucas pull out the big guns for this.

The behind the scene shows Abrams not only putting his own mark on the series, but keeping to the tried and tested method used by Lucas, making fans happy that the film is not going to lose any of its authentic feel to CGI.

The introduction of new characters, new lands and even full scale x-wigs and Millenium Falcon.

At the end of the big reveal there was huge applause from the crowd, so fans even looking very teary eyed.

Here is the clip in full for your enjoyment, and trust me if you are a Star Wars fan this will send a shiver up your spine, I know it did for me:
