The Last Jedi Finishes Post-Production!
Writer/Director Rian Johnson has posted to his Instagram that the eighth chapter in the Star Wars Saga has officially wrapped post-production. The final trailer is expected to debut during Monday Night Football on October 9. However, with a big film like this doing a huge worldwide launch, Lucasfilm now has the arduous task of dubbing the film for dozens of countries, as well as getting the promotional juggernaut rolling for cast and crew. It’s also possible John Williams may still have final music tweaks, ILM may still be rendering effects, and other minor corrections. Th final cut of the movie is locked, though, which is very good news.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson, produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman with J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski and Jason McGatlin serving as the executive producers. The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro. 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. The movie opens in U.S. theaters on December 15, 2017.
