Inför den kommande Star Wars-episoden The Rise of Skywalker hade klipparen Maryann Brandon en kortare lucka att knåpa ihop filmen på och lösningen till detta var både praktisk och något ovanlig. Brandon berättar nämligen att hon var på plats under inspelningen och samarbetade med J.J. Abrams för att kommunicera om filmens struktur medan filmen skapades på plats:
"When we did The Force Awakens we started in May and we finished shooting in October, and we were out [the following] Christmas.
"For this film, we didn't start until August, so we weren't done until February shooting - so we have four months less time, and it's a very big film. So I convinced JJ to let me cut on the set. He was like, 'no, we never do that'. I was like, 'just try it, so I can start turning over shots'.
"So I was on the set the entire time, and he got so used to it that he was like, 'you need to be less than ten feet away from me at all times' - so if the camera would move 10 feet, I would move 10 feet."
Hon tillägger att hon kunde be om en särskild vinkel eller scen till klippningen:
<em>"If I needed a shot, or if JJ decided we needed another shot, we would set up in a corner and get a green screen shot of something.
"Getting to know the cast and having them be comfortable with me, it was a really great way to understand what they were going through."
