Up close with the ships, props, and costumes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars Celebration this year was a mecca for fans of things from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It was also an opportunity for Lucasfilm to take the wraps off some of its upcoming new movies, including the first details about Gareth Edwards' stand-alone film Rogue One and a new teaser trailer for the highly anticipated The Force Awakens.

Up on the second floor of the convention center, there was an exhibit dedicated solely to models, costumes, and props — including a controversial lightsaber — from J.J. Abrams' upcoming film. Here's a look at what you can expect to see on the big screen when the Star Wars saga continues this December.
