A documentary about Rian Johnson and the making of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will make its world premiere as part of the SXSW 2018 schedule this March. The Director and The Jedi is directed by Anthony Wonke and produced by Tylie Cox. This is the documentary that will be included in the upcoming home video release of The Last Jedi.
Here is the description provided to SXSW by the filmmakers:
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.
SXSW 2018 takes place in Austin, TX from March 9-18 and celebrates film, music, and the intersection of both. For more information about SXSW please visit sxsw.com.
