Thanks to Lucasfilm, the first twelve minutes of the documentary for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now available, and we’ve got you covered!
The digital version for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now available, with the Blu-ray hitting stores two weeks from now. The Force has given us another gift in the meantime, with Lucasfilm releasing the first twelve minutes of the behind the scenes documentary for The Last Jedi.
We will let you get right to it; then we’ll break-down this behind the scenes Star Wars treat.
The documentary, The director, and the Jedi, recently debuted at South by Southwest film festival in Austin Texas. Directed by Anthony Wonke, the featurette shows us the tremendous heart of Rian Johnson in spades.

What sticks out the most is Rian Johnson and his love for Star Wars. He makes it clear that he’s a fan first and filmmaker second. His passion for fans of a galaxy far, far away is evident, which is refreshing in a day and age where egos reign supreme. Johnson is as humble and grateful as they come.
Also, Johnson’s intensity and attention to detail in this footage are impressive, most impressive. His goal was to get all of the intricate details correct, and he accomplished such purpose in the movie.
Also, it’s great watching the relationship between Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill — Rey and Luke Skywalker — blossom right before our very eyes. It’s amazing how talented the duo is, especially together.
It’s enough of an appetizer for now, but I cannot wait to watch the featurette in entirety, which will accompany the home release of The Last Jedi.
The entirety of The director and the Jedi will release with the Blu-ray copy of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in two weeks, on March 27.
