“Getting that call was a great day. I was in the editing room on All the Light We Cannot See, and I look at my phone and there it is [Lucasfilm president] Kathy Kennedy. Thus began a conversation that led to her inviting me to develop and make my Star Wars film. I’m putting everything into it because I love this world and it’s a privilege to be a part of this galaxy.”
