The Rise Of Skywalker’ Had To Be Edited Throughout Filming

Brandon needed to persuade him to do it, however as soon as she began chopping pictures for the movie mid-production, Abrams appeared to let go of his reservations. “I used to be on the set the complete time, and he received so used to it that he was like, ‘you must be lower than ten toes away from me always’ — so if the digicam would transfer 10 toes, I’d transfer 10 toes,” she recalled.
