Rian Johnson and the Star Wars team revealed behind the scenes footage from December’s The Last Jedi at Disney’s D23 Expo. Those who are interviewed within the three minute video echo what we have felt here at Rogue Auteurs: Rian Johnson is going to elevate the franchise. The writer-director of Brick, The Brothers Bloom, and Looper has shown a knack for science-fiction as well as a knack for not ignoring character development in the face of special effects and complexity. This is exciting new footage that should only stoke the already blazing fire of hype surrounding Episode 8.
