- In a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, actor Oscar Isaac reveals his favorite scenes to film.
- Isaac found filming "exhilarating," but he had to deal with the constant sand.
- "Tons of sand would pour out of my hair," the actor says in the segment.
Though Oscar Isaac played the role of Poe Dameron in three different Star Wars movies, that didn’t mean that filming the final part of the Skywalker saga was easy. In a behind-the-scenes feature of the making of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker from the upcoming home release, the actor talks about his favorite parts of filming the final movie—as well as some of the elements he had a tough time dealing with.
According to Isaac, the actors had to cope with sand being blown in their faces throughout the shoot; at least part of the film was shot in the Wadi Rum desert in southern Jordan, which might explain the sand problem. “They had fans [going] as well so you just have all this sand getting into your eyes," he says to the camera. "I’d come home after some days and just like, tons of sand would be pouring out of my hair.”
The clip also shows Issac, along with fellow co-stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, filming their scenes for the movie, performing in front of a giant green screen, and joking around during their off-time.
The final movie of the Skywalker saga from the Star Wars franchise came out in theaters in December 2019 and has raked in over $1 billion globally in sales. Fans can begin streaming the film on March 17 before its physical form hits stores on March 31.
