Director Rian Johnson Had to Wait Until This Morning to Complete The Last Jedi’s Opening Crawl
Yesterday, Lucasfilm officially announced the title for Episode VIII: Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Now that it’s finally in the wild, the movie’s director can finally make one tweak to the current cut of the film he’s presumably been wanting to make for quite some time.
Rian Johnson took to Instagram today to share a teasery shot from The Last Jedi’s ongoing editing process, giving us a teeny, tiny glimpse of the movie’s opening crawl.
Turns out—presumably to keep the title as secret as possible during the edit process—Johnson couldn’t actually officially “complete” the opening crawl of the film until after the Last Jedi name was released by the company. Now the movie is a teeny, tiny bit closer to being complete!
oh man, what a tease…! nobody likes a tease, but in this case i’m totally fine with it… seems like december is forever away, but i know it’ll eventually get here… shit man, as i get older, time sure does seem to fly by at warp-speed so maybe it’ll feel like it’ll be here in a couple weeks.
still trying to soak in the official movie title… but a few other movies sure do come to mind, like: The Last Samurai, The Last of the Mohicans, The Last Airbender, Transformers, The Last Knight, The Last Boyscout, The Last Starfighter…
PS. little bummed that Deadpool didn’t get any oscar nominations. damnit.
