‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Documentary to Premiere at SXSW

By March 8, 2016

Along with the announcement of The Force Awakens blu ray release date last week, Disney also revealed that the home video release of the film would not only be coming with some exclusive, never-before-scene interviews and deleted scenes from the movie, but would also come with an in-depth documentary behind the making of The Force Awakens called, Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey.

Now, while a majority of fans will still have to wait a little less than a month to consume the highly-anticipated documentary, it has been announced that the documentary will be premiering and playing at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, which kicks off this Friday.

The documentary will be shown on Monday, March 14th at 12:00pm at the Paramount Theatre in Downtown Austin. Visual Effects Supervisor Roger Guyett, Supervising sound editor Matthew Wood, and Co-producer Michelle Rejwan will available for a Q&A following the screening as well.

Fans of the film will likely be on hand and ready to consume Secrets of the Force Awakens as soon as it becomes available to them, and not only because its more Star Wars-related content, but also because the production on The Force Awakens was shrouded in so much secrecy for a majority of its shoot.

The chance to finally see the production and process behind some of the film’s most memorable scenes and beats is too tempting of an opportunity to pass up, and for those of you lucky enough to be in Austin this coming week, you might just get to see it a little bit earlier than the rest of us.

SXSW will be held from March 11th – March 19th, in Austin, Texas. The Force Awakens blu ray will be available to buy on April 5th.
