Counting down the 95 days until The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.

In the days leading up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, And There Came A Day will present links, images, videos, art, memories, laughs, theories and thoughts leading up to the big day… which happens to be on my birthday!  ENJOY and may the Force be with you, always… or at least until 12.18.15!

IS THAT REALLY PRACTICAL?

One of the biggest excitements surrounding The Force Awakens is that JJ Abrams has had it very, very clear that this movie features a huge amount of practical effects. He’s not contending that there is no CGI in the movie, just that an emphasis was put on doing things “in camera,” as it were. And, while he didn’t suggest this is to distinguish his film from George Lucas’ prequels, many fans, claiming of form-over-substances in the Episodes I, II and III have surely taken it that way.

Well, prepare to be shocked… (I’m always pleased to learn something about Star Wars that I didn’t know!) THERE WERE MORE PRACTICAL MODELS BUILT FOR THE PREQUELS THAN FOR ANY OF THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY FILMS!

Interesting stuff!
