This video released today shows director J.J. Abrams on the set of Star Wars VII in Abu Dhabi, where he has just announced a competition to win a chance to travel to London and appear in the new film.
With the cast of Episode VII finally revealed, I have to admit, I am getting pretty freaking excited about a new chapter of Star Wars blasting its way into contemporary pop culture. In honor of Star Wars Day, let's relive your best Star Wars moment from your childhood—or your adulthood!
