Much better than the Last Jedi documentary
18 November 2018 | by eusunglee-91587See all my reviews

This documentary shows how TFA was much more of a collaborative project than TLJ, which was just Rian Johnson's movie.

The actors and crew seemed to have a lot more fun making this film, and they seemed to have a better working relationship with JJ Abrams compared to Rian Johnson.

The TLJ documentary focuses mainly on Rian Johnson and his producer. Very little input from the actors. Most likely because the actors were not that happy working on TLJ.
