135 min

have done movies of this size.

I imagined that Ram and I would be outsiders,

that we would be somehow infiltrating

this world that we don't belong in.

I feel like it looks too much like a droid.

Too complicated, too robot-y, too Doctor Who.

I feel like they gotta be, you know...

They gotta be classier. Yeah.

You have to lay down all your chips on it,

in front of a lot of

really good poker players,

and say, "This is the right decision, "

based on nothing but this little tingle

you get in your stomach.

And, you know, that's scary.

That's really terrifying.

Rian delivered a great script,

very ambitious, with a lot of surprises.

And people realize that

he has a complete vision

of the film he wants to do.

I've known Rian since we were teenagers.

I was over the moon.

I couldn't believe that it was something

this amazing and meaningful to me.

And that it was still a Rian movie.

It wasn't a hired gun

because he was gonna write it

and Ram was going to produce it.

- I, sorry.

- That's okay.

I have all of the poster art

if you want to see it at some point.

You don't need to see it right this second.

But it's easy for me to pull up on PIX.


Once we decided that we were making Star Wars movies,

he was one of the people that

I was immediately interested in.

I just think that his storytelling ability,

and who he is, as a human being,

just exemplified a lot of the values

and the sense of fun.

I get excited when it feels like

it's something new and unique.

I just have one goal,

which is to make the most powerful

Star Wars movie I possibly can.

The best shot at making something good

is to come into it and trust my guts, you know.

What's up, Leo?

I know.

He's getting pretty big now.

- Up and coming.

- Yeah.

He would love to talk with you tonight.
