We’ve already shared the first 12-minute of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi documentary The Director and the Jedi, but today we have a trailer for the film to share with you. This is a feature-length doc that has a runtime of 135 minutes. It recently premiered at SXSW where it received some positive buzz and it will actually be included as a bonus feature on the upcoming Blu-Ray/VOD release of The Last Jedi.
What’s so cool about this is that we will get to see a very revealing inside look at the making this movie. This is kind of a rare thing for any movie, and even if you weren’t a fan of The Last Jedi, the fact that you’ll get a candid behind the scenes look at the development of such a big movie may be of interest to you. I’m looking forward to seeing how Rian Johnson works.
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.
Watch the trailer and let us know if this is something you’re interested in watching.
