Vanity Fair now revealed a behind-the-scenes video featuring photographer Annie Leibovitz set of the movie and more goodies. If you missed the previous photo shoot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens from Annie Leibovitz you can watch it here.
Abrams revealed to the magazine that he thought about killing off Jar Jar Binks. “I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there. I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.”
Vanity Fair saw new footage from the film as well, including a scene in which a Jawa-like creature popped out of the desert. Abrams called it “a classic, old-school seesaw puppet. We just buried it in the sand, and Neal Scanlan, the creature guy, pushed down on one side and the thing came up on the other side. It’s so old-school and crazy. We could improve this thing, but at some point do we lose the wonderful preposterousness?”
