Disney+ Releases Trailer for New Lucasfilm Documentary, “Light & Magic”

 

Behind the scenes with “Light & Magic”

Disney+ has released a trailer for new 6 episode Lucasfilm documentary, “Light & Magic”, that will premiere on the streaming service July 27th.

I love these behind the scenes look at the creation and work taken to bring that galaxy far, far away to life. I remember watching the Making of The Empire Strikes Back on TV when I was a kid and inspiring me to one day be just like George Lucas. The trailer and images below have us very excited at Star Wars Reporter!
