A Few Brief Behind the Scenes Shots Feature Rey and Phasma from The Last Jedi, and a ‘Han Solo’ Set!

A new video by the British Film Institute (BFI) takes a closer look at Lucasfilm’s newly established program which hires BFI Film Academy trainees for the new and upcoming Star Wars films, creating various on-the-job learning opportunities including visual effects, sound, camera & editorial. During the video we can see quick glimpses of a few new behind the scenes shots from scenes that we’ve seen in The Last Jedi teaser. Even in one of the shots we can see on of the Han Solo sets.



The video was spotted by Jeremy Conrad on Twitter:




It’s really nothing groundbreaking but the shots with the camera car and the huge green screen were pretty cool. Here are the new shots from the video:




Also we got a quick glimpse at a set from the new Han Solo movie. It’s hard to see much but it’s clear that the fog was intentional. You can see some trees in the background and the soil.

    Looks all really good. I look forward to seeing more of this movie. 🙂

    What an awesome program and opportunity for these great people. Seeing all the intention and care that’s gone into the Han Solo film, behind the scenes, makes me more optimistic about it for sure. It makes me even more stoked for the Last Jedi! Huge props to the BFI Film Academy. 🙂

    I wonder if we will ever see a live-action Doctor Aphra. If so, who might play her? I was thinking Olivia Munn if it is an older Aphra. I think in the current comic lines Aphra is in her early to mid twenties. Or perhaps an unknown.

    • June 29, 2017 at 6:05 am

      Mila Kunis? Sexy and sassy. Her voice may not work for the character, though.

      • June 29, 2017 at 5:58 pm

        Not a chance after the shitstorm SJW’s kicked up over Ghost In The Shell.

    • June 29, 2017 at 8:58 am

      I hope we don’t. SW comics aren’t exactly well written and never have been. They serve some fan service, and fill in a couple of geeky gaps. That is all.

      • June 29, 2017 at 11:15 am

        I could see Aphra being worked in as a supporting character in a Star Wars Story movie set between ANH and ESB. After all, Saw was put into Rogue One.

        • June 30, 2017 at 8:33 am

          uh, no. I don’t agree. Saw is from the CW series, which is of a much higher caliber then any comic.

    • June 29, 2017 at 11:11 am

      Chloe Bennet

      • June 30, 2017 at 6:44 pm

        I thought she was awful in the first season of AoS, but she’s grown into the role really well. Not a bad choice.

      • June 30, 2017 at 10:40 pm

        That would be a good choice. Chloe and Aphra both have that “Almost-Asian” look.

    • June 29, 2017 at 1:42 pm

      no god please no doctor aphra no! one of the worst , childish comics ever made

  • June 29, 2017 at 9:00 am

    Those people seemed nice and sincere, bu that was some seriously targeted propoganda. “We hire women and minorities”. Ok.

    • June 29, 2017 at 10:00 am

      Welcome to modern Star Wars under Kathleen Kennedy’s rule.

    • June 29, 2017 at 3:09 pm

      And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. It’s ok to encourage more hiring for these groups of people. Nothing wrong if their abilities are sufficient for the jobs.

      • June 29, 2017 at 6:32 pm

        nope, nothing wrong with that, but really the best people should be hired for a job. We have no idea if these people are any good at what they do because the video didn’t address that point.

    • June 29, 2017 at 5:53 pm

      It’s totally fine to hire women and minorities. But they don’t have to shove it down everyone’s throats. That’s almost as bad as not hiring women and minorities.

      • June 29, 2017 at 11:34 pm

        Thank you for giving the OK. It’s too bad you think it’s being “shoved down your throat” in a video you didn’t have to watch at all.

        • June 30, 2017 at 12:20 am

          It’s like putting “I respect women and minorities” on your resume. It’s completely unnecessary and narcissistic to say that stuff, on something like a Star Wars video. Now putting that on something that actively promotes women and minorities is absolutely okay. (Hint: You don’t look for those things on Star Wars sites) Saying 75% of the graduates were women seems to me that they are promoting women only. Star Wars is now taking a very active Pro-Woman role, which isn’t bad. Rey as a lead, Jyn as a lead, and the new Cartoon which has only women in it…. It’s not inherently bad, but when they remind you in writing at the end of the video, it gets to be annoying and unnecessary.
          I watched the video because it was star wars, not because it’s trying to advertise that they are 75% more likely to hire a woman than a man.

          • June 30, 2017 at 12:23 am

            They are obviously comparing between men and women, where men lose in this particular situation. And they are proud enough to write it and put it on a video
            75% Were women.
            25% Were men.
            They didn’t need to write it at all.

          • June 30, 2017 at 3:01 pm


          • June 30, 2017 at 5:19 pm

            I’m glad you agree.

          • June 30, 2017 at 5:37 pm

            I agree you are whining over nothing. Who cares what they say about that? How does it bother you so much?

          • June 30, 2017 at 5:40 pm

            If you think I’m whining then why are you asking me to further explain myself, when I’ve already explained above? Most people ignore the whiners.

          • June 30, 2017 at 6:17 pm

            I try to understand people because your explanations don’t show how their comments are so offensive to you, but good point. I will just ignore you.

          • June 30, 2017 at 6:20 pm

            Ha ha…. Because “WAAAHHHHH” is how you ask for better understanding. You made my day.

          • June 30, 2017 at 10:12 pm

            So, it’s OK that you hire women and minorities, just don’t share the stories and positive experiences of those people who are given opportunities to thrive in a white-male dominated industry, because some white guys don’t like hearing about it. OK.

          • June 30, 2017 at 10:31 pm

            You misunderstand me. It’s absolutely okay to hire them. It’s okay to share the stories of some lucky kids who get to work on star wars. That’s awesome! It’s a dream come true for all of them, male and female alike. But saying “75% of the graduates are women” without any mention of the male population tells me that they want to be patted on the back for doing something that everyone should already be doing. That’s not a personal story. That’s a statistic. That’s also why they’re making all the new leads women. And why the new cartoon is only about the women. I don’t mind this, but the fact they keep bringing everyone’s attention to it, is what bugs me.
            Star Wars is known for being one of the leading franchises that has strong female leads. It seems now that they’re trying to make it ONLY about that. It makes me feel like Lucasfilm now has an agenda to push rather than making fun stories we all love.
            I watched the video because it was an inside look at Star Wars. I didn’t watch it for statistics on how, finally, females are better than men.

            PS…. This is how I feel. I’m not stating how everyone else should feel.

    • June 29, 2017 at 5:59 pm

      Yet how many little people have we seen as leads in any of the Disney films? More corporate BS.

    • June 29, 2017 at 9:25 pm

      Individually we are all minorities. I mean there is only one of me but there are 7.4 billion of y’all.

    • June 29, 2017 at 11:36 pm

      Why is it so bad to call attention to the fact they are giving opportunities to people who traditionally haven’t had many of them in the film industry? What harm does it do you, personally?

      • June 30, 2017 at 8:29 am

        No need to take it personally. I didn’t.

        I believe that my observation was unquestionably spot on. It’s a “feel good” propoganda piece that has little to do with SW. Pretty obvious.

        • June 30, 2017 at 11:03 am

          The question remains: what is so bad about that and what is so bad about showing people you are doing so?

        • June 30, 2017 at 10:07 pm

          “Spot-on?” You label it “propaganda,” which has a decidedly negative connotation to it. Why can’t they simply promote the program and tell a good story about people being given positive opportunities? And the point of it was obviously not to promote Star Wars, but to tell the story of these young people and the hands-on learning experience they are being given. And yet, you cast it in a negative light for some reason.

  • June 29, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    0:45 “I started to learn English three years ago”

    Holy crackers, hats off to you, pal.

  • June 29, 2017 at 2:47 pm

    Soil! From the Han Solo set………….

  • June 29, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    That last Han Solo pic, the Guy in the middle, looks like he’s wearing a cover over what might be a black Stormtrooper’s armour, with a Shoulder pauldron.

  • June 29, 2017 at 6:21 pm

    Does anyone know where Han Solo is shooting now? I live in California and saw a shooting sign marked “SMUGGLER” … is that too obvious?

    • June 30, 2017 at 5:23 pm

      I doubt it would be the Han Solo film, honestly. :-/ Like you said, that would be too obvious. Not to mention that the Star Wars films are filmed primarily in the UK and Europe. The Han Solo film is nicknamed Red Cup I believe. I work in the film industry and I know that the bigger the project, the less likely they are going to put up signs for the cast/crew. People kept stealing the Breaking Bad signs so eventually they resorted to just red arrows instead of the typical yellow signs. They wouldn’t want to draw attention to their set for fans to crash.

  • June 29, 2017 at 6:43 pm

    So Kathleen, president of the company, supervises the hiring of Interns? So, she does micromanage, right?

    • June 30, 2017 at 11:00 am

      Reminds me of a certain old man who signed off on every single thing.

      • June 30, 2017 at 7:36 pm

        Yes, art designs, edition, etc, not Interns… but you go on and get a tattoo of her face

        • June 30, 2017 at 9:55 pm

          So we are in agreement. Both are micro managers, but for some reason, you only seem to have a problem when Kennedy does it…I wonder why that is.

          • July 3, 2017 at 5:51 pm

            Oh, the SJW rears it’s ugly head. Nothing to do with that, and I find it odd you can’t see the difference between supervising the integral parts of a movie and the guy that gets the coffee, I’ll do as you and assume you are a millennial and have never held a real job. Bye now.

  • June 30, 2017 at 9:05 am

    I’m not sure why but everything I am seeing for The Last Jedi feels so….. UNDERwhelming. I don’t know if its the LACK of Han Solo, or the pending mistreatment of the Luke Skywalker character…but I’m not nearly as excited as I was when I left the TFA Theater in 2015.

    • June 30, 2017 at 3:00 pm

      “pending mistreatment”
      Says all you need to know right there.

      • June 30, 2017 at 8:45 pm

        When it comes to Rian Johnson, I have a bad feeling about this.

        • July 1, 2017 at 1:45 am

          you’re the only one

        • July 4, 2017 at 2:23 am

          I think Rian Johnson is much more promising a director based on his unique films than Colin Trevorrow with what “Jurassic Park”. At least RJ wrote and directed three completely different films in Brick, the Brothers Bloom and Looper.

    • June 30, 2017 at 6:42 pm

      I guess you’ll always have the comics.
