There where also posters and art work made to be published.

Tie-in products:

Fans can buy clothing, toys, games, figures, books and more from Disney stores and from other retailers around the world.

Special effects:

J.J Abrams wanted to film as much as he could in-camera. This meant building big sets, big models and using paintings. This was to ensure it didn't stand out from the other Star Wars films in the prequel. CGI was also used in the film when needed.
