Fear Of A Black Stormtrooper

Behind the scenes on the STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS teaser.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens breaks new ground by having a black man as one of the leads. But capturing that now-famous trailer shot of John Boyega in the desert required some work, and sketch comedy group Hush Money brings you a look behind the scenes of just how JJ Abrams got this performance from the first black stormtrooper. 

(Full disclosure: my girlfriend is a member of Hush Money, but I wouldn't run this video if it hadn't made me laugh. I would have just kept making excuses as to why I was too busy to run it until she forgot about it)
