J.J. Abrams Did Something on The Rise of Skywalker Set That He Never Does
JJ Abrams was forced to leave his comfort zone during a shooting Star Wars: The Skywalker Uprising . Editor-in-chief Maryann Brandon said they had less time to work on this episode than the previous two. It was therefore necessary to resort to tactics to save time during production. Lucasfilm was separated from Colin Trevorrow in September 2017 after working for two years on the final installment of the Skywalker saga, as he would have been misplaced behind the camera. This caused a significant delay when Abrams boarded.
With Colin Trevorrow gone, Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams had to fend for The Rise of Skywalker from the ground and had to change the release date. Even with the delay of the release date, they were always ready to prepare the film for the cinema. Maryann Brandon had to convince Abrams to let her edit during the shoot. She explains.
"When we did The Force Awakens, we started in May and we finished filming in October, and we went out (the next day) of Christmas.For this film we did not started in August, so we did not finish until the shooting of February – so we have four months less, and it's a very big film, so I convinced JJ to let me cut it off. He said, "No, we never do that." "
When all was said and done, turning and editing went really well for Maryann Brandon. Even filmmakers like J.J. Abrams need to try new things from time to time and it was necessary to do The Rise of Skywalker to do it. This has probably saved a lot of time and stress. Brandon had this to say about the process.
