The Rise of Skywalker Friendship Featurette
As a long-time Star Wars fan, I really enjoyed seeing how the actors behind the rolls came together off-screen as well as on in this featurette. Seeing these iconic actors forge bonds that go beyond the camera added another layer to my understanding of the Star Wars universe and how the people in it build both it and the characters within it.
