The Director and the Jedi will be included with both the digital and Blu-ray release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We've already got Solo: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters soon so it seems like only a matter of time before Luke Skywalker finds his way back on the big screen. After The Last Jedi was released and showed Luke's fate, hardcore fanboys, fangirls and seasoned skeptics took to Twitter, Reddit, and the multitude of social media platforms to argue their stance on the much "darker" storyline for the iconic Jedi.

Mark Hamill was recently honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in an interview with Variety, he said that he loved the idea of Jacob Tremblay playing a young Luke Skywalker.

The Director and the Jedi, directed by Anthony Wonke, is a documentary about Rian Johnson and the making of The Last Jedi, and it's nearly as long as the film it's documenting.

THR also notes that Johnson's mentality came from a more selfish place. And so even though he disagreed with Johnson, he still put all his faith in him and delivered the best performance he could. "They're made to reflect the most hard transitions we go through in life", he said.

In the clip, which you can watch above, Johnson and his team study the concept art of another ball droid, which is more mechanical than BB-8, before deciding it doesn't work for their movie. "I had lots of terrible ideas", Hamill said.

European Union tells Britain to "face up to hard facts" on Brexit
German Christian democrat Elmar Brok, who sits on the assembly's Brexit steering committee, said it was "damage limitation". He said that there were options on the table to do this and that these needed to be worked through.

As he accepted his star, Hamill told the crowd he was struggling to convey the depth of his gratitude.

Hamill surprised the audience when he crashed the panel near its conclusion, joking, "This is just a cameo at the end".

Also during the hour-long chat, Johnson looked back on how he got his start as a filmmaker, beginning with his family financing his first film, 2005 indie Brick.

In The Director and the Jedi, Johnson says that if he was a fan, and not the director, "The only thing I would really want [from The Last Jedi] is a good movie that delights me in ways I didn't expect".
