It’s something that we all expected, but now “IMAX” has officially announced that key scenes from Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi were shot using IMAX cameras. Read on for the official press release.
Actually, as we first reported back in May 2016 (HERE), during The Last Jedi filming in Ireland several of our readers met Rian Johnson in a pub and asked him directly about IMAX. The director was super friendly and asnwered several questions, also confirming that they are using IMAX cameras for some of the sequences. In a later report we even told you that one of the IMAX cameras on set was broken. Make sure to check that extraordinary story here.

Abrams’ iconic use of IMAX cameras in Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be pleased to find that Rian Johnson has captured key sequences of Star Wars: The Last Jedi using IMAX’s extremely high-resolution cameras, delivering IMAX audiences greater scope and increased image quality in IMAX’s exclusive aspect ratio for a uniquely immersive experience.
