We may not get an extensive behind-the-scenes book on the making of any of the new Star Wars movies for decades, if at all, but at least we’ll get something for The Last Jedi: Writer/director Rian Johnson told /Film that Lucasfilm is planning to release a book of his great black-and-white set photos. And you know what? I’ll take it. Johnson’s photos have been one of my favorite parts of the runup to the movie.
Books detailing the making of The Force Awakens and Rogue One were planned and scheduled and perhaps even (partially?) written, but never saw the light of day. A photo book might not give all the juicy details, but it’s certainly better than nothing – and aren’t the photos usually the best parts, anyway?
