Can’t wait for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to hit theaters on December 14? Pixar’s heartfelt empowering story about Mexican tradition, Coco, is resonating with audiences all over the world and also giving us something to be thankful for when it comes to Star Wars.

The new footage and behind-the-scenes goodness is apart of the Noovie pre-show that airs before Coco at select theaters. Star Wars: The Force Awakens left the audience on a cliffhanger as Rey finally located the reclusive Luke Skywalker on the uncharted island Ahch-to hoping he'd take his iconic lightsaber from her hand. The Noovie pre-show reveals some of what happens next according to Screenrant:  “You think I came to the most unfindable place in the galaxy to be disturbed,” Luke asks Rey and Chewbacca, who are looking to him to help the Resistance defeat the First Order and his former padawan, Kylo Ren.

Disney has done a considerable job at piecemealing footage unpredictably through social media and traditional outlets. This Luke and Rey BTS footage is just the whipped cream on the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie leftovers considering we got a new TV spot during the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade featuring more Porg and Chewy that diehard fans need in their lives.

If you’re still on the fence about whether to go see Coco, Disney and Pixar made the decision a little bit easier for you.
