People magazine got a first look at some of the DVD extras to come in just a few hours, and the highlights are incredible.

Here are a few of the things they learned:

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Well, if you saw the movie or read about it, or watch any TV at all, you know "The Force Awakens" killed off an iconic character. But J.J. Abrams was looking to kill someone else off too! Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron was supposed to be killed in an early script. But Isaac was not having it.

"And one of his issues, in wanting to do this movie, is that he had made, like, four movies in which he had died early on. And he was sick of dying early on," Abrams reveals in the extras.

Also Carrie Fisher, who plays now-General Leia, was actually nervous to return to the franchise that made her a superstar.

"It's my whole life, so I was very nervous," she says. "I was scared that I would make mistakes, and I made mistakes ... It was basically the worst day I had ever had on a film set in my life," she added about her first day back. Things turned out OK in the end, though.

Lastly, Captain Phasma's shiny duds were an early design for all-around bad guy Kylo Ren, who apparently was to be all-silver in an early rendering. The chrome creation eventually went to actress Gwendoline Christie's Phasma, who leads the stormtroopers into battle.
