Star Wars: The Last Jedi Behind the Scenes Reel Breakdown!

As most of you saw yesterday, Lucasfilm released a new behind the scenes reel for The Last Jedi at D23. Here is our breakdown and analysis of the reel with screenshots and every quote!

 

 

First off, if you haven’t seen the reel yet, here it is again:

 

 

 

Together with the reel, Disney sent us the following official synopsis of The Last Jedi:

 

In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

 

Some of you might recognize the word “shocking” from this synopsis that was also discussed here when this Japanese promo leaflet was leaked a few weeks ago. It was definitely legit. The wording of this synopsis is very intriguing, especially with the age-old mysteries and the mentioned shocking revelations. At this point we can only guess what they are.

 

Now back to the breakdown. The reel begins with shots of the set and props, with accompanying sound effects of lightsabers and the Falcon, followed by Rian Johnson saying “Action!”

A cave, probably on Ahch-To

 

The huts of the inhabitants on Ahch-To. Probably abandoned for some time.

 

The good old Millennium Falcon cockpit

 

Chewie always paying extra attention to little details. He looks pretty.

 

A decapitated Artoo heading to the Jedi steps on Ahch-To.

 

 

Next we have several land speeders that perhaps will be used in the Canto Bight sequence that was shot in Dubrovnik. Still the setting looks more like the UK than Dubrovnik, so this is probably a stand in location for Dubrovnik.

 

 

Anthony Daniels is reflecting, almost in awe that they are at Episode VIII.

 

“The first one didn’t even have a number.”

 

A camera man capturing an explosion of red, which would appear to be the surface of the new planet Crait that we saw being churned up by the new Resistance fighters heading towards the walkers in the first teaser from Celebration Orlando.

In the trenches of Crait

 

 

 

Chewbacca outside of the Millennium Falcon alone by a fire, perhaps a solemn scene of reflection, seemingly right where they parked at the end of The Force Awakens.

 

“Rian has written a story that is unexpected, but right.  Some of the stuff that happens….people are going to be like, ‘Oh my God’…and even though everybody knows it’s the second in a trilogy, it feels like it’s own thing.” – Daisy Ridley

 

Rian is looking at an interesting object or a character in the photo above. It looks like a statue or another creature. Could this be the sea creature we were describing in the past?

 

 

Next we get a brief glimpse of Finn wearing a Resistance pilot uniform. Interesting.

 

 

We see a shot of Rian with Mark in his light Jedi attire in a cavernous place of some sort (again most likely on Ahch-To), a shot of Carrie as Leia lifting her head with what appears to be concern on her face with a white snowy/dusty or mountainous background, Luke finally holding the lightsaber that was once his, that was once his father’s, in what looks like one of the first scenes to occur after Rey finds him at the end of The Force Awakens.

Leia on Crait?

 

 

“Even though I think I know it all, they throw things at me story-wise that I never could have imagined.” – Mark Hamill

 

 

Filming at Dubrovnik the Canto Bight sequence:

 

 

Kylo Ren, with his mask, but now a cape as well.

 

 

It seems that red is really an important color for this movie.

In the center of the photo above, where the action is taking place, you see someone that raises his hands as if like he is balancing. We know that Snoke has red guards in this movie. Could this be his throne room or something?  This is probably the most interesting shot from the whole BTS reel. What do you think?

 

 

A special effects explosion near Poe’s X-Wing that may be the same as the one we saw in the first teaser.

 

 

Next we see Carrie Fisher talking with Rian Johnson at what appears to be the Resistance base of operations. We saw that again from a different angle in the teaser.

 

 

Daisy Ridley arrives on Skellig Michael for the Ahch-To shooting:

 

 

The main cast reunited in the movie and having fun. At least several shots from the BTS reel suggest that we will see the main characters (Poe, Finn, Rose and Rey) together in The Last Jedi.

 

 

Rey training with her staff on Ahch-To:

 

 

Testing the new First Order Stormtrooper weapons.

 

“Star Wars is cool because there’s all these creatures, and amazing visual effects, but all the characters are so complex.” – Kelly Marie Tran

 

We see a long-eared creature in what looks like a horse stable. This is the same creature that Finn and Rose eventually ride in Canto Bight that we have seen in previous reports (see photo below).

 

 

And another cool animatronic of a crystal wolf creature:

 

 

Next we have a few shots from the underwater sequence in the movie. Yesterday we told you that there is an X-Wing underwater on Ahch-To. From the photos below it is visible though that this sequence happens in a cave. Could this sequence be connected somehow with the sea creature we described before HERE?

Rey jumping in the water

 

 

 

Check out this cool looking croupier from the casino at Canto Bight:

All The Clone Wars fans will immediately recognize that this is a creature known as Zilkin

Many of you probably remember TCW character Meebur Gascon who served as a colonel in the Republic army during the Clone Wars (photo below).

UPDATE: It appears that these two creatures are not from the same species. Pablo Hidalgo confirmed it:

 


Maz Kanata is back. We’ve seen very little from her so far, so perhaps her role in The Last Jedi will be much smaller compared to The Force Awakens.

 

 

Admiral Hondo greets General Leia:

 

 

Poe strapping into a new ship, which looks like it might be one of those new Resistance fighters we see in the first teaser churning up the red planet surface of Crait. It is definitely not an X-Wing so I imagine this happens after his X-Wing is blown up by Phasma and her troops. It is probably one of the speeders that we’ve seen on the planet Crait in the teaser trailer.

 

 

Creepy and pale looking Hux gets prepped.

 

 

A fun moment of levity between Rian Johnson and John Boyega shows Rian attempting (poorly) to make Chewbacca sounds, and Boyega joking they’ll need a new director because he isn’t good at making wookiee noises.

 

“It feels like the storylines are getting more established. We’re really getting to know these new characters, also with the characters we know and love, we’re seeing their lives change.” – Gwendoline Christie

 

 

Shots of Phasma, Rey training, Kylo Ren with his scar, Luke on a mountain’s edge, C3PO, R2D2, Chewy, Leia, Phasma with her troops, and what appears to be Finn being released from that healing tank we saw him in, in the first teaser.

The setting here definitely looks like Canto Bight

 

Curiously in this shot Chewie is in the pilot’s seat

 

Finn waking up from the Bio-Hexacrypt

 

 

 

Poe sliding towards a large crevice, a Canto Bight casino croupier flying through the air.

This is definitely happening on Crait, although we don’t see the typical white dust/sand. Later in the video we see Rian Johnson climbing up one of the ladders in the trench as seen above. Also matches with the red explosion in the beginning of the video.

Another casino croupier

 

More Canto Bight residents

 

“Everything is being shifted in an opposite way to what the audience expected after VII. Rian’s made Star Wars fresh and new.” – John Boyega

 

Rose the mechanic

 

 

A shot of Benicio Del Toro’s character, wearing a hat of some sort. Notice that BB-8 is in the same scene.

 

 

 

A Resistance gunner, which we surmise to be Rose’s sister Paige.

 

 

Adam Driver training with his trademark Kylo Ren lightsaber against two stuntmen, both holding long staffs. Could this be Kylo Ren turning on the Knights of Ren or against Snoke’s guards? Of them turning on him?

 

 

Daisy practicing Rey fight scenes with three adversaries crashing staffs down upon her single lightsaber blade. This could be Rey fighting the Knights of Ren!

 

 

Poe and BB-8 running down a corridor. Also seen in the teaser trailer.

 

 

Finn shows us the casino on Canto Bight.

 

And greets some local Canto Bight residents of the lower class:

 

 

General Hux driving a cool looking speeder. Very Nazi looking.

 

 

Some new creatures, including the adorable Porgs from Ahch-To.

 

 

Finn in a cell of some sort, followed by Rose and Finn disguised as First Order officers. It looks like they’ll be taking a page out of the rebellion handbook and going undercover!

 

“I’m hoping it’ll be a little shocking, but I’m hoping it will feel real, and honest.” – Rian Johnson

 

Shots of Kylo Ren’s helmets, a resistance A-Wing taking on flames, a resistance fighter falling in some sort of hall of devices (bombs?).

 

 

Daisy shown training once again with a staff this time, alongside a stuntman.

 

 

Carrie and Mark joking and bobbing together on set, so simple but so touching, knowing how close they were till the end.

 

 

Billie Lourd.

 

 

Another Star Destroyer deck explodes.

 

 

Finn and Rey between takes on Crait.

 

Poe, Rose, and Finn together

 

 

A mask-less Ren who seems caught off guard or surprised.

 

Rey holding her lightsaber over her head.

 

“It’s our most ancient story of good against evil, told in the most fascinating way, but it has a real spiritual depth to it.” – Gwendoline Christie

 

 

“It’s about family…and that’s what’s so powerful about it.” – Carrie Fisher

It’s a WRAP!!!

    In the teaser trailer, Rey stands on a cliff face, looking down at something, but the shot is cut off before revealing what that something is. I suspect it’s Luke’s X-wing, and that Rey will be diving into the water to investigate.

      You can see Luke’s X-wing in the water on the pinball machine – it’s by the bumpers.

      Two words: digital makeup. Most of these creatures will probably be touched up using CGI. Plus, we don’t even know if the crystal fox is supposed to be a real creature, some kind of droid, or even a luxury item of decor (after all, it kind of looks like it’s a wall mount). So yes, negative Nancy, and jumping the gun with the negativity, I’d say…

        “Digital makeup” won’t completely change the original design very much. In R1 and TFA the aliens ended up looking exactly like in the behind the scenes reel. Maybe some smoothing in Adobe Aftereffects but don’t expect too drastic changes. As for the fox it is neither a droid nor a wallmount. If it was statuary it wouldn’t have made sense to build an animatronic interior, if it was a droid why care about details like pink gums and irregular teeth?

          If Rian really wanted to wow us he could have shown us a few CGI creatures in addition to all these so-called “practical” creatures.

            I don’t expect many CGI creatures in the final movie since there’s very little indication of CGI beeing added later on. Luke’s hand and a couple of backgrounds as well as some full CGI shots but I could not see placeholders for creatures. I have to admit though that I work in the games industry and not the movie industry so I might be mistaken.

      I highly suspect many of these creatures are base layer waiting for a cgi coating. Especially the bald guy. I thought Crystal fox was amazing.

        The crystal fox was like the coolest creature in the whole featurette,

        What the hell do you mean with CGI coating? So far I haven’t seen a single creature in the SW that has been “coated with CGI”. Some colour adjustments sure, some changes in composition but the original masks have not been touched by CGI whatsoever. If you look at a making of you can clearly see that the masks and costumes they used in Maz’ castle remain unchanged. The only combination of CGI and practical effects was Unkar Plutt and you could already see during principal photography that they would replace his face later on. “Replace” is important here. However, coating masks with CGI makes no sense to me. The blending of CGI and real footage is hard enough as it is. Why would you waste time and money on tracking and adjusting lighting when you could easily do that while crafting the masks . Why can’t I see any coloured dots or stickers used for tracking on any of the masks. Your CGI coating doesn’t hold up from a technical point of view which is why I am afraid that some of the aliens will end up looking weird. I know that they will probably be utilized intelligently but I would have preffered more realisticly looking designs like space monkey.

          You’re looking at behind the scenes footage as final product. For all we know we may never see that particular shot/angle for the very reason your upset. It’s not up to snuff!

          If it makes you feel any better about it. I agree that particular bald muppet looks horrible. I still stand by what I said but can easily agree with you. There isn’t any evidence that they’ll replace him with CGI from the bit of scene we do get to see.

          All that said… there’s no evidence this is the final product either since it is labeled “behind the scenes.” I get the concern… but I’m not going to be bothered by it. The OT had some pretty questionable Aliens in it’s time… and it didn’t ruin it for me. Heck when I was really young I use to think Chewbacca was a wolfman costume!

            I know that the final product always looks different in the end but a good design doesn’t magically appear out of nowhere. There are many steps between the mere thought of a creature and the final shot in the movie. When doing a CGI creature no matter how good the sculptor an the texturer are and no matter how well the rendering department does their job if the concept art of a creature sucks then the creature will usually suck too. We are already way past the concept art stage so it’s safe to say that things won’t change too drastically at that point. Despite that there is no indication of digitally altering the creatures in postproduction. It would be an uncommon workflow to enhance elaborate masks and animatronics with CGI and not use an markers for tracking (after all only Lupita Nyong’o wears some). They have not used CGI to enhance masks in any of the movies before so why would they do that now? I always try to be open minded and of course a couple of weird creatures won’t ruin the movie for me. But I did not have issues like that with the creatures JJ picked and I loved every single creature design Edwars chose to have in his movie.

    Okay I hate to be a negative Nancy but as a movie creature enthusiast I have to say that Rian Johnson has made some pretty bad decisions in terms of the creatures he wants in his movies. Below this comment is a picture of all the creatures I don’t really like and explanation why:

    1. I know the footage is pretty bad but the bald guy looks terribly cartoony especially when you compare him to a real human. The design is neither incredibly interesting nor well done. The eyebrows look like they are glued to his head and the monochrome eyes make the face look like a mask a bankrobber would wear in a movie.

    2. The design isn’t that bad itself but the blending of the skintones in the face and shoulder area is kind of bad. I also think that the face lacks details such as wrinkles, freckles or other skin irregularities. I like the golden horns though and how these specics specific accesories make the alien more believable.

    3. The design itself isn’t terribly bad though it too lacks details and looks too smooth for my taste. However what I really dislike is the fact that they already sculpted a smile onto their faces. This means that they will most likely not be able to move and thus can only appear for a couple of frames before the lack of facial movements becomes obvious.

    4. This is basically the David Cronenberg bodyhorror version of Jabba the Hutt. I don’t like the blend of a completely humanoid face with the bloblike body. While the necklace certainly adds a nice detail to the design I don’t think it’s very fitting for the Star Wars universe.

    5. This design isn’t bad in itself but it’s more like something you would expect to see in Babylon 5 and not in SW. The blending of skin and prostetic makup is nicely done and the jewelry specifically designed for the shape of her head adds a nice amount of detail and realism. Still the design doesn’t feel much like Star Wars to me.

    6. The icefox is unfortunately one of the worst designs I have seen in a Starwarsmovie. If this was a design for some creature in a “Never ending Story” reboot I’d be fine with it. But in Star Wars that has always cared about believable creature design this feels incredibly misplaced. The crystalline hair makes no sense from an evolutionary standpoint, the silver skin looks unrealisticly smooth and the whole design is too similar to an ordinary fox. I really hope this one won’t make it into the movie.

    Am I a buzzkill here or do some of you feel the same. I am usually pretty open when it comes to new designs and I am aware of the fact that these things might look different in the final movie but so far I am not really happy with an awful lot of the creatures which was neither the case with R1 nor TFA.

      Yeah I’m not a 100% convinced by the crystal fox thing…..yet., and as for the bald guy with the eyebrows perhaps he’ll be augmented with cg by the time of release?

      Add to this. It would have been nice to see some familiar species a la Twileks, Rodians, Nikto, Duros, etc. Something to make the creature texture gel with the rest of the series. These creatures are getting into Dr. Who territory.

    From the BTS, I speculate the movie’s outline will consist of:

    Act 1:
    Ahch-to – Rey, Luke, Chewie, R2.

    The Resistance – Includes Leia, Poe, Finn, Rose, Pagie, BB-8 (attacked by the First Order). This takes place in space, The Resistance are forced to retreat, head to Crait.

    Act 2:
    Ahch-to (cont) – Rey and Luke’s story act too big and important to be covered by 1 act. Kylo Ren and The Knights of Ren attack Rey and Luke, but are ultimately defeated. Luke defeats most of them himself, leaving Rey to face Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren bests her, but retreats instead of facing Luke.

    Canto Bight – Finn and Rose on a side mission involving Benico Del Toro
    Crait – Leia, Poe, BB-8, Admiral Holdo

    Act 3:
    On board a Star Destroyer – Finn and Rose (dressed as First Order), possibly this is where Snoke is.
    Crait – Epic battle.

    • July 17, 2017 at 2:38 am
      Permalink

      I agree with the Rey/Luke storyline being too large for a single act, so their stay on Ahch-to probably lasts until the end of the second act, when Kylo and his Knights arrive. (There’s also little evidence so far that Rey and Luke spend a significant amount of time away from Ahch-to.)

      But I think the space battle will be at the end of the second act, quite possibly above the planet of Ahch-to in an effort to protect Rey and Luke, who’ll be busy with Kylo Ren. I think the Resistance fleet will get hammered, and everyone will hunker down at Crait, which will provide the location for the final act’s epic battle.

      • July 17, 2017 at 12:09 pm
        Permalink

        Yeah, the only evidence we see of Rey outside of Ahch-to (so far) is her inclusion with the walker Lego set on Crait, and the BTS photo of Rey and Finn on Crait, so we know she is definitely there. The space battle I’m still a little unsure about of its timing, at first I thought it was at the end of the movie, but went with the first act because I believe it is the trigger for sending Finn, Rose, and BB-8 to Canto Bight (the 2nd act). Agree the ‘resistance fleet will take a hammering in the movie.

        • July 17, 2017 at 8:04 pm
          Permalink

          I think a space battle above Ahch-to would tie in nicely with the Kylo/Rey showdown, which to me seems to fit best at the end of act two. That’s when you want your characters at their lowest point, and so act three would begin with Rey having been defeated by Kylo, and the Resistance fleet reeling after a beatdown by the First Order.

          Also, there’s a shot of Rose crying on what appears to be the ramp of the Millennium Falcon. I’d imagine that’d happen right after the space battle, based on one particular shot in this footage. I’m not sure the Falcon is anywhere near the fleet until later in the film. Chewie seems pretty comfy camping out, waiting for Luke and Rey to do their thing.

          I think the mission to infiltrate the First Order is all Finn’s. There’s a shot of him talking to Poe and Rose in an otherwise empty room. Poe seems particularly pumped about the plan. I think Poe helps Finn and Rose infiltrate the First Order, but Finn and Rose end up on Canto Bight after things go sideways. Maybe this is why Leia slaps Poe? Maybe Poe turns to an old friend like D.J. for help? I dunno. It’s fun trying to put the pieces together.

            I never noticed Rose sitting on the Millennium Falcon ramp until you pointed it out. That’s if it is the Millennium Falcon, and it looks a hell of a lot like it is. Must confess this has left me stumped. Agree with you that Chewie will not leave Ahch-to until Rey is ready to leave. So, your logic holds a lot of merit. Maybe you’re right and the space battle is later in the movie. That makes me very curious to what is happening in the movie with Leia, Finn, and Poe before the space battle.

            Yes, speculating is part of the film.

        I prefer CGI creatures over practical ones. Also I want creatures that do not look like man in a suit or man with a mask. And creatures like that can be done only with CGI.

        But mix of CGI and Practical creatures would be ideal.

        As for crystal fox… it looks fake. And on the same time it is just common fox made of crystal.

            Yes there is. Just because you change the coloration and texture of the fur doesn’t mean the design doesn’t strikingly resemble an ordinary fox. Whle this might work in a Sword and Sorcery Fantasy movie it does not in Star Wars. It’s perfectly fine to draw inspiration from nature when designing creatures (in fact you should do that) but the crystal fox is just lazy. If you look at the creatures in Avatar you can always see what animals they are based on. Like this is an alien horse, this is an alien rhino, etc. but never the less they look alien. How crystal fox got past the artdirectors is beyond me, especially given how well they have done their jobs in previous movies so I blame it on Rian.

          You would have hated that film with a big preying mantis at the bar.

          Or that one with a gila monster and a snake in the swamp.

            I would love that movie. I want aliens like Kaminos or geonosians for example. That can be done only with CGI. Prequels have a mix of both. And I really want the same in this movie ( Especially now with 2017 CGI ).

            The snakes on Dagoba and the Mantis in the cantina both distract me everytime I see the movies. It’s obvious they wwere made because of limited budgets/technology but this should not be a standard pratice in a 2017 big budget blockbuster.

    What’s really curious about that shot of Chewie in the pilot’s seat is that he has a feather in his mouth. Looks like Chewie gets into the chicken coop in this installment!

    Am I the only one who’s getting the impression that there’s a lot more passage of time within TLJ than in previous SW films?

    I’ve wondered about that ever since it was announced that TLJ picks up exactly where TFA left off. Obviously there will be some sort of time passage involving Rey’s training, at least along the lines of what was implied in ESB.

    But now I’m also noticing little things such as the fact that Finn, in the shot of him in the Resistance pilot suit, has had himself a haircut since the beginning of the film. Now, perhaps that’s just part of whatever undercover role he plays when he and Rose infiltrate the First Order, but with all this talk of Rian shaking up the established SW norms, isn’t it also possible that he may have decided to make TLJ span a longer period of time than a SW film normally does?

    Just a thought.

      Could we also add that Ren’s scar has pretty much *healed* ? How fast would a sabre laceration take to heal to a scar line ?

        With bacta, however long the plot dictates

          What if there are different species of bacta?

          Yes, I just opened that pandora’s box of fan speculation. 🙂

            Confirmed – Snoke IS Bacta.

          Yeah, that’s why I haven’t been factoring Kylo Ren’s facial scar into this. In ESB, Luke had the hell ripped out of his face by that wampa, and his little bacta dip seemed to heal those woulds in a matter of days, or perhaps even hours.

    The movie comes out in 5 months. This was all I need. I do not need to see another trailer

    There’s a pic of Chewie holding his bowcaster. Is he stood in the Alliance / Resistance bridge-conference room set ?? Why would he be there ‘armed’ ? And there’s another pic of 3PO, with what looks like broken windows behind him, and possibly in the same locale ??
