If you were one of the many in attendance at New York Comic Con this past year then there was a chance you were lucky enough to experience the upcoming battle in Star Wars: The Last Jedi up close and personal.
Fans who attended New York Comic Con’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi exhibits were taken off guard as they went from being a guest of the convention to being caught slab dab in the middle of the conflict between the Resistance and the First Order.
As the hidden cameras show, some fans were even picked to be wanted criminals as they are pursued and tracked down by First Order Stormtroopers and even Kylo Ren himself. Of course, Resistance soldiers and BB-8 would make an appearance to help even the odds and join in the battle.
