There is so much to uncover as to how the magic unfolded onto the big screen. Director Rian Johnson has the secrets and wants you to see the world just as they did from behind-the-scenes without anything held back.
A synopsis via Tor was released describing what to expect from The Director and the Jedi:
An intimate documentary delving into Rian Johnson’s process as he comes in as a director new to the Star Wars universe. A fan since childhood, he sets out to make the most powerful Star Wars movie he can. Navigating the mammoth production, the scale of which he’s never directed before, we meet his cast and crew, see their individual challenges in bringing the film together, say goodbye to Carrie Fisher, and explore the significance of Rian’s more surprising decisions.
The documentary gives you a view of what it really was like to make The Last Jedi. As the team strive to do their best, what shines through is their passion and how memorable an experience it is for Rian as director.
Johnson went on to cosign the new development on the way through his Twitter, as well.
YESSSS! We had @anthonywonke & his crew on set every day, we were always radio mic’d up. This isn’t talking heads & b-roll, it really gets into process & captures what the shoot felt like. Excited to see it with a crowd… https://t.co/3lkPkDRPnP
