The Last Jedi Rian Johnson Behind The Scenes

Star Wars films have always been monster productions that aren't afraid to push the boundaries of filmmaking. No matter how the final product is received, there's always a wealth of interesting facts and features fans can learn from behind the scenes of these productions. In 2004, Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy treated everyone to an intimate look at the huge impact the original Star Wars films have had on the world. And most recently, The Rise of Skywalker home media release gave fans a feature-length documentary about the making of the production.

The middle film of the sequel trilogy, The Last Jedi, hasn't yet been given the same behind-the-scenes bonus material as some of its predecessors. But fans have been clamoring for a while to learn more about the somewhat controversial film.


Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi, was recently asked on Twitter about the status of a potential 'making of' book for his Star Wars film.


While The Last Jedi has been given an official art book titled ' The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi ', which provided readers a more in depth look at the concept art of the film, there hasn't been much revealed about its production. Solo: A Star Wars Story had an official 'ILM Making Of' book released in 2019 which looked intensely at the filmmaking journey of the film, featuring high quality on set photos and new facts from the cast and crew.

It seems like one of these books for The Last Jedi has been on the radar for some time and that Johnson has been working with Lucasfilm to get it released. Johnson also shared that he has plenty of behind the scenes photos that he wants to make public and many fans would love for him to do so. With Hollywood productions shut down at the moment, there's more time for these sorts of projects to be pushed forward.

Regardless of when or if the book is released, more details about The Last Jedi would be welcome. The film divided audiences upon its release but could offer a unique look into the immense journey of making the film that can help bring more fans to its side.
