The script for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was written on a special MacBook Air


Since Disney acquired the Star Wars rights, the company has put the direct and every year this universe offers us a movie. The latest to hit theaters was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a film that is on the way to breaking box office records.

Throughout the process, Disney has been very jealous of everything that surrounded the film, but especially the script, the most important part of the film. To prevent part of it from leaking, a MacBook Air was used that had Internet access blocked.

According to the writer and director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, he was forced to make that decision to prevent parts of the script from being leaked online to give clues to the followers of this franchise. But it was not the only reason, since they also wanted to be safe from any attack that they might suffer from hackers. Rian has made these statements in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

I wrote Episode VIII on a MacBook Air. For security reasons, it was never connected to the Internet. I took it and used it for nothing more than writing the script. I kept it in a safe at Pinewood Studios. I think my producer was horrified that I left him in a coffee shop.

Johnson claims that throughout filming never separated from an Omega Speedmaster Pro from the 60s and a Leica M35 6mm camera from the XNUMXsa.

I bought a ton of super high speed black and white film and had the camera on my shoulder at all times. At the end of the shoot I had a couple thousand frames. It keeps an eye on you on set because you're always looking for cool things to shoot.
