“Star Wars: Episode 8” Director Rian Johnson shared an interesting update about the progress of the production of the movie online. Meanwhile, cinematographer Steve Yedlin also talked about what it is like to work on the project.

The upcoming filming is currently in the post production phase of development and Johnson made some crack pie for the team in the edit room recently. The director joked that if there are any scenes in the film that are “weirdly frenetic,” then it is his dish that should be blamed.

Meanwhile, Yedlin told The Film Stage that he and the director have the same “wavelength” and that makes it easier to work together. The two have them have worked together for so long that they understand and trust each other.

Talking about the filmmaking process, Yedlin revealed that Johnson is very hands on with the camera and knows exactly what he wants from each shot. When it comes to the lighting, however, he trusts the cinematographer for it.

Even though the filming of “Star Wars: Episode 8” has wrapped, Yedlin has not watched at least a large portion of it. He, however, has seen the dailies.

Since this is the sequel film, and there were a lot of questions that went unanswered in “The Force Awakens,” there is a lot of speculation about the plot and characters among the fans. But, Yedlin doesn’t spend time reading what the fans have to say about the upcoming movie.

Commenting specifically about spoilers, Yedlin said that if there is any leak that ruins the experience for the fans then that is not a good movie. If it is a good movie, then the fans would be able to enjoy watching it even though then know what’s coming and then watch it again and again.

A lot of the scenes and other details about “The Force Awakens” leaked online long before the movie was released. A lot of details about “Star Wars: Episode 8,” including behind-the-scenes pictures surfaced online when filming was still going on. Will Johnson and his team be able to deliver?
