You must watch this Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes video

It's a behind-the-scenes look at the next Star Wars flick, and everything is proceeding according to my plan that this movie will be ridiculously awesome.

As soon as it was announced that Rian Johnson would be writing and directing The Last Jedi, I was sold on this flick. Johnson's previous movies include Looper and Brick, which are both incredible, action-packed indies.

We've seen some glimpses of the movie in a teaser trailer, but we get a pretty concentrated dose in this behind-the-scenes vid that shows off some cool fight scenes (Rey with a light saber!) and a bunch of weird new creatures (WTF is that glassy-looking fox?). Also, it's always fun to hear John Boyega, who plays ex-Stormtrooper Finn, using his real-life British accent. We also see some great footage of Carrie Fisher (hard not to get a little choked up there).

One of the themes of this video seems to be that Johnson's script is going to be a little shocking. Given that there's a chase scene in Looper that haunts my dreams to this day, I can absolutely believe that there will be a few unhinged moments in The Last Jedi.
