Rian Johnson shares behind-the-scenes picture of The Last Jedi

I can't f*cking wait for EPISODE VIII! And this is coming from someone who hated EPISODE VII's guts. And these are the two things that get me pumped: 1) the characters were amazing in THE FORCE AWAKENS. I loved Rey, Finn, Poe, and even Kylo Ren (it's just that - in my opinion - the movie they were in was needlessly derivative, overly plot-hole ridden, and shitty), and 2) motherf*ckin' Rian Johnson.

Johnson has vision, and tells unique, dark stories, but always with a twistedly humorous touch (just look at BRICK, LOOPER, or even his episodes of BREAKING BAD). I can't wait to see what he does with the dark "EMPIRE STRIKES BACK" chapter of the new trilogy. I also can't wait to see him actually utilize these new characters to their full potential. 

Anyway, Johnson recently posted a photo on Instagram of him behind-the-scenes at the editing bay. Let's take a look:


Felt so good to drop this into the cut this morning.

It's not much, admittedly. But it's still cool to see that progress is being made, and that we should be seeing a trailer soon!

Meanwhile STAR WARS EPISODE VIII: THE LAST JEDI will Force push its way into theaters December 15th, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: At least THE LAST JEDI wasn't some play on EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
