South by Southwest festivalgoers will get a first look at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens making-of documentary.
Before it’s released as a bonus feature with The Force Awakens on Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack, Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey will make its world premiere during this year’s SXSW. The feature-length documentary takes a deep dive into how the cast and crew brought the highest-grossing movie of all time to life, with exclusive footage and interviews with the actors and filmmakers.
The doc will premiere March 14 at noon at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas, with visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett, supervising sound editor Matthew Wood, and co-producer Michelle Rejwan participating in a Q&A after the film.
The Force Awakens will be available via Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on April 1, and the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be released April 5. Other bonus features include exclusive footage from the Force Awakens table read, an in-depth look at how the filmmakers brought BB-8 to life, and a reflection on John Williams’ work on the Star Wars saga.
SXSW runs March 11-20 in Austin, Texas.
