You’ve just got to love Rian Johnson. The guy has quietly put together a fantastic filmography with many years still ahead of him, but he’ll get the biggest exposure of his career yet when his latest effort, Star Wars: The Last Jedi bows in just over a month. Even if you’ve never seen any of Johnson’s work, listened to his commentaries, or heard his thoughts on film and pop culture, this new behind-the-scenes video should clue you in as to just the kind of fan and filmmaker he really is.
While walking through the various sets and visiting the many characters (and creatures) in the latest installment in the Star Wars story, Johnson’s vision and skill as a director is commented on by stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and even the late Carrie Fisher. It’s another behind-the-scenes look that tugs on the heartstrings and offers up some incredible inside looks. The film can’t come soon enough!
Also starring Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Andy Serkis (Snoke), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Dohmnall Gleeson (General Hux), and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), with Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern, the film is scheduled for release on December 15, 2017.
