-- At the Anaheim Convention Center, Star Wars Celebration attendees camping out to get an eyeful for today's Force Awakens Q&A panel got a bellyful, thanks to director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy.
Fans were already queuing up Wednesday evening for the panel, which kicks off the expo, and will feature the anticipated movie's director and producer, as well as other guests -- and, fans expect, the first peeks of the new film since the 88-second teaser that debuted last November.
To sustain those braving the overnight wait, Abrams and Kennedy had pizza delivered late Wednesday to the already massive line, according to a Lucasfilm staffer who tweeted pics of the supply drop.
The seventh "Star Wars" movie's Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Anthony Daniels -- and many other stars from the series -- are on hand at the event that runs from April 16-19; it remains to be seen who appears at Thursday's panel.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will be released on December 18 by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
