Brief Synopsis – Behind the scenes look at the making of the final film in the Star Wars Saga.
My Take on it – As an unabashed fan of all things Star Wars, I was intrigued to watch this behind the scenes look at the final film of the entire series.
The way that this film presents interviews with the cast and crew of the films of the entire 9 movies of the saga is done really well because it all converges and culminates with the final movie in the entire series.
These interviews are quite in depth and allow us to see why this series resonates so well with fans and non-fans alike because of its structure, dialogue, characters and most importantly its story and exotic yet familiar seeming locations.
They are able to give us so much insight into the way that this film was made along with how it fits in with the other movies in the series so well.
The story stays quite engaging throughout and gives us so much behind the scenes information of how the final film in the saga was done.
Just watching this documentary makes me want to revisit Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) once again and also makes me want to watch the whole series again because of the feelings that this behind the scenes look is able to awaken within me.
Bottom Line – Amazing addition to the behind the scenes features of the Star Wars films. This movie has some amazing interviews with the cast and crew that resonate so well and help explain why this film and the series as a whole work so well with fan and non-fans alike. The way that they allow us to gain so much insight into the making of this final film of the series works so well throughout because of the way that things remain so engaging throughout. Just watching this, makes me want to revisit Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) once again, not to mention the rest of the films in the series. Highly Recommended!
