Gisteren avond kreeg USA Today een exclusieve primeur. Zij hebben namelijk de eer gehad om als enige een video te krijgen van achter de schermen bij The Last Jedi. Gelukkig hebben wij ook de video kunnen veiligstellen voor jullie en je kunt hem hier boven bekijken!
Daarbij kregen ze ook nog een interview met regisseur Rian Johnson. Hieronder de twee meest interessante vragen en antwoorden:
Q: The journeys of new heroes Rey, Finn and Poe streamlined at the end of The Force Awakens. From the looks of the Last Jedi trailers, it seems like they’re each going their own way again.
A: When I first read the script of The Force Awakens, I was like, "I feel like I know these characters instantly." And now we get to kind of put them through a meat grinder. (Laughs) And for me, part of that meant that we had to make things as hard on each of them as possible: At least part of the movie, they don’t have their friends around. They’ve got to figure things out for themselves. They’ve got to be faced with whatever the toughest thing each of them can be faced with, and they’re not going to have their buddy there next to them to get them out of it, necessarily.
Q: Does Leia see Poe Dameron as the future leader of the Resistance?
A: Yeah, I think so. He’s also got some growing to do. Poe’s got to grow. She definitely saw that potential in him and in The Last Jedi, we dig into that more. We’ve seen how heroic he is and now we’re going to see him challenged in terms of stepping up to the next level. It takes more than heroics to be a leader, or so I’m told.
