The filming of Star Wars: The Last Jedi not only resulted in one of the more controversial entries in the franchise, but also in a candid, open making-of documentary focused on writer/director Rian Johnson’s relationship with Star Wars. The Director and the Jedi was a huge behind-the-scenes undertaking that watched the entire process unfold — and thankfully, it filmed lots of Carrie Fisher.

The late actress played General Leia Organa in the film and was planned to lead the final entry in the trilogy before her death. In a new clip from the home release, she talks about working with Johnson in her typically dry, snarky fashion.

She highlights the director’s “dominating vision” that ran the show, yet masked the director’s flaws, which the actress is certain he has... she just doesn’t know about them. It’s good to hear Fisher rib her boss — something that might lend the documentary a secondary, memorial purpose in hindsight.
