“Fans of Star Wars will get to experience a sequence in a way they haven’t before” – Director J.J. Abrams
The new IMAX Behind-the-Frame featurette takes you behind-the-scenes to see how IMAX cameras were used to put Star Wars fans into the centre of the action like never before. The featurette provides exclusive commentary from Director J.J. Abrams and the Star Wars cast – including Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, and Adam Driver.
On December 17, the latest instalment in the world-renowned series, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will hit theatres and the only way that fans can truly become part of the action is by experiencing it in IMAX® 3D.
Director J.J. Abrams commented: “That feeling of going to the movies and having a fully immersive, powerful, high-quality presentation of the film is something that is more valuable than ever and I think IMAX stands for that. When you go to see a movie in that format you know you are going to get something that is the best version of going out to the movies.”
Abrams shot key sequences of Star Wars: The Force Awakens using IMAX cameras - the highest-resolution cameras in the world. Only in IMAX theatres will these sequences expand vertically to fill the entire screen with breathtaking image quality for a truly immersive experience.
