‘Star Wars’ Co-Producer Dishes on the Film’s Final Shot and HDR
A few Star Wars: The Force Awakens details were revealed by the film’s co-producer during a Hollywood tech retreat.
Co-producer Ben Rosenblatt answered questions about how the film was made and the ending. The final shot of the film was lensed from a helicopter, looking down at Rey and Luke, but Rosenblatt admitted that director J.J. Abrams was conflicted about using that shot or concluding with a close-up of Rey. He added that the decision was driven by John Williams’ score, and it “left you with this sweeping emotional epic [feel], and you’re going to see a lot of that in Episode VIII.”
